New Delhi: Maharashtra's Deputy CM and Bharatiya Janata Party leader Devendra Fadnavis has made a statement about making a law against 'Love Jihad'. The Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra said that we have not taken any decision on this yet. Devendra Fadnavis said that we will study the laws made by other states in this regard. He said that at present it has not been decided to bring any such law.
These states have made such a law
At the airport, Fadnavis was asked by reporters whether his government was planning to enact a law against 'love jihad'. On this the Deputy CM of the state said that we are probing this aspect, but no decision has been taken so far. For information, let us tell you that a bunch of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled states, including Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Gujarat, have either amended the existing laws or "by coercion, coercion, fraud or coercion". A new law has been made to prevent religious conversion.
Central government gifted these projects to the state
On the other hand, on infrastructure projects, the state's Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis said that the central government has approved the second phase of Nagpur Metro Rail and Rs 2,000 crore Nag River Rejuvenation Scheme. He appreciated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for gifting these projects to the state. The winter session of the state legislature is usually held in Nagpur, the second capital of Maharashtra.
