New Delhi: Congress today asked the NDA government not to “reopen very sensitive issues” like abrogation of Article 370, Uniform Civil Code and Ram Mandir.  Party spokesman Shashi Tharoor also cautioned restraint on the issue of tackling infiltration in Assam contending that the problem cannot be solved by “wave of a wand” and “human lives are at stake”.

Talking to reporters, Congress spokesperson Shashi Tharoor said, “We have taken a very clear position that this is not the time in the country to reopen very sensitive issues raised by several leaders.”

He was asked about Press Council Chairman Justice Markandey Katju's remarks that Uniform Civil Code must be implemented.

Such issues will distract the development message, he said, adding that the BJP-led coalition should “stick to the script”.
