Judicial probe against Central agencies “unfortunate”, says Rajnath Singh

Rajnath Singh

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said the Kerala government’s decision to recommend a judicial inquiry against central probe agencies, including the Enforcement Directorate (ED) probing the gold and dollar smuggling cases, was “unfortunate” and amounts to challenging the federal structure of the Constitution.

Singh, who is in Kerala to campaignfor the BJP-NDA candidates in the 6 April Assembly polls, also said the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) will be implemented only after taking all the communities into confidence.

The UCC is there in the BJP manifesto. On the rising fuel prices, he said the Centre had requested all the states to reduce the state duty on petrol.
