Same-sex marriage would certainly trigger mayhem with the delicate balance of personal legislations in the nation,” Sushil Modi claimed in Rajya Sabha on Monday.
Modi objected to legalising same-sex marital relationships in both social as well as social contexts as well as said although such connections have been decriminalised in the country, but marriage still being a spiritual institution, therefore same-sex couples living together is one point, but giving them lawful status is not recommended.
