Amit Shah

HYDERABAD: Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that the BJP will implement the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) by March next year if it comes to power in Telangana. Releasing the manifesto here on Saturday, Shah said that it was not a manifesto but guarantees given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Stating that the Prime Minister had done lot of work to empower Telangana, Shah said, "While the Congress Party, from 2004-14, released only Rs 2 lakh crore as devolution and grant-in-aid for united Andhra Pradesh, the BJP Government, under Modi's leadership, released Rs 2.50 lakh crore in 9 years for just Telangana.

"This manifesto is Prime Minister Modi's guarantee. We have always fulfilled the promises we have made, kept our promises and fulfilled our promises after getting full majority. Congress had never supported the separate State and when the hasty division was carried out, it gave Telangana in an unnatural manner," he added
