BJP’s ally JD-U to oppose Triple Talaq Bill in LS

Patna, July 25 : Differences continued within NDA on the contentious Triple Talaq Bill which is coming for consideration and passage in the Lok Sabha on Thursday.

NDA partner JD-U is adamant on opposing the bill.

JD-U on Thursday said the party is not with the BJP on this bill and will oppose it Parliament.

JD-U chief spokesperson Sanjay Singh said, "JD-U is opposed to it and we will continue to stand against it." He said, "the bill should have been discussed within the NDA and all allies should have been taken together on this issue.

However, he said every party has its own agenda and BJP and JD-U have their own agendas."

JD-U leader said Triple Talaq is a social issue and it should be resolved by the society at the social level.

Apart from the Triple Talaq Bill, Jd-U has differences with BJP on some other issues like Article 370, Uniform Civil Code and the issue of Ram temple at Ayodhya which the party believes should either be settled through dialogue or court ruling.
