No plans for anti-conversion bill: Venkaiah

 Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday said the NDA government has no plan whatsoever to bring a law banning religious conversion, as it perceives that there is no threat to religious freedom, as claimed by the Congress.

“There is no threat to the secular fabric in the country, but there is could be a threat to the vote bank fabric of the Congress,” said Naidu.

He told a press conference here that the government is prepared to have meaningful discussion on any issue, including the conversions or “re-conversion” issue, if the opposition is prepared to talk. “I appeal to the opposition parties to allow the Rajya Sabha to function to pass important bills as conversions or re-conversions are going in this country before independence, after and right now as I am speaking,” he said.
