“Marriage is considered one of the holiest acts. It should happen in circumstances where there is No fraud and No cheating. The law will ensure that nobody can provide false identity, false religion and basically, you cannot hide your Religious Identity to get Married even in Social Media or otherwise. We have drafted a law. We have seen the laws enacted in other States also. But as I told you, we are going into Elections now.”
