AIZAWL: Mizoram assembly is likely to pass a resolution opposing Uniform Civil Code (UCC), an official said.

Home Minister Lalchamliana would move an official resolution opposing the UCC during the upcoming budget session, which commences on Tuesday, the official said.

Last week, the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) Legislature party opposed a bid to implement UCC in the country and said that it would take measures to pass a resolution opposing the UCC during the budget session.
