Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday said about 150 suggestions have been received for the proposed bill to end polygamy in the state and only three of them opposed it.
The final drafting of the proposed legislation will commence now and will be completed in the next 45 days, he said. “Update on proposed bill for banning polygamy – We have received a total of 149 suggestions in response to our public notice. Out of these 146 suggestions are in favor of the bill, indicating strong public support. However, three organisations have expressed their opposition to the bill,” Sarma wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
The Assam government had issued a notice on August 21 seeking public opinion on the proposed law on the controversial subject. The notice, shared by Sarma on X, had requested the people to send their opinion by August 30 through email or by post.
