As the Assam state government is now looking to make a law banning polygamy, the Chief Minister remains quite upfront about it.
He said, “A legal committee was formed to check if polygamy can be banned by the state govt or not. Later, we asked the public for their opinion if they had any objections. We received a total of 149 suggestions from the public, out of these, 146 suggestions were in favour of banning polygamy and 3 suggestions were against this”.
But then he also affirmed to now proceed to the next phase of the process, which is to complete the final drafting of the bill in the next 45 days, which will also include the issue of ‘love jihad’.
“I expect that in December, we will be able to table this bill in the State Assembly…” is what he shared in his interaction with the media.
