Dhami had said, “Protection of the cultural and religious heritage of Uttarakhand, protection of its environment and protection of its borders is important not only for the state but for the entire country.” Soon after the swearing-in ceremony, the BJP government will form a committee consisting of legal system, retired employees, prominent people of the society and other stakeholders to draft a Uniform Civil Code.

Dhami, who became the Chief Minister again after the BJP returned to power in the state with more than two-thirds majority, had decided to constitute an expert committee to prepare the draft for the Uniform Civil Code in the first meeting of the cabinet itself.

He had said, ‘Uniform Civil Code will be an important step to strengthen the spirit of the Constitution. It will also be an effective step in the direction of Article 44 of the Constitution, which talks about achieving a Uniform Civil Code for every citizen of the country. The top court has also insisted on its implementation from time to time.
