Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani during a campaign in Godhra said that the government will make an effort to bring a law against love-jihad in the coming assembly session.
Vijay Rupani was campaigning for the party in the upcoming taluka and district panchayat polls.
“We have worked for the development of Godhra. In the coming session of the assembly, we wish to bring the love-jihad law. We won’t tolerate the abduction of Hindu women and their conversion through love jihad,” Rupani said.
He also highlighted his government’s achievement in bringing the Gunda Act and said the law will force anti-social elements to leave Gujarat or to leave criminal activities.

Vijay Rupani also talked about the Land Grabbing Act that was passed by the assembly to end the land grabbing by anti-social elements.
He said the Act provides for action within 15 days of a complaint being filed with the district collector. He said it also provides for special courts to try such cases and ensure that a verdict is given within six months.
It provides for 10 years to 14 years of imprisonment, Vijay Rupani said. The chief minister said the government has so far received 130 applications under the act.
Listing the steps taken by his government to fight corruption, he said they have strengthened the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) and in the last three years recovered unaccounted assets of government employees.
“Recently a former Talati was nabbed with crores of rupees worth unaccounted property,” said Rupanni.
He said several other departments where corruption is believed to be high are facing the heat of the government’s action.
Rupanis said the government is determined to bring tap water to 100% of the state’s villages and so far a target of 82% has been achieved.
