‘Disclose religion before marriage…’: Assam minister on BJP manifesto for polls

Senior Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said the law asking to disclose religion will be in BJP manifesto. This comes in the backdrop of some states announcing laws on ‘love-jihad’. Sarma said, “We have many agenda. In this manifesto, we are going to promise a comprehensive bill on disclosure of confidentiality clause while engaging in a marriage ceremony.

Now, many of our lands in lower Assam and middle Assam are being grabbed by certain elements including our monastery.” Watch the full video for more.
