The whole idea of ‘One Nation One Election’ idea is not something new. Rather it is considered to be a huge boon to promising economies like India which need liberal policies to proceed ahead.
No doubt, populism is not at all helping India in the long run and the root cause is all about influencing voters with eye-catching schemes or vested interest ones.
Having all elections together, at a time, will not only provide decision making but also help in reducing the cost of the whole election procedure. Incidentally, PM Narendra Modi has been indeed very keen on ‘One Nation One Election’ policy.
In various political campaigns and discussions, PM Narendra Modi has stressed the importance of such and have asked all political parties to come to a consensus for the best interests of the nation as a whole.
He has categorically appealed to all the Opposition parties to rise above petty party political interests and put the nation first as a sole priority. The opposition parties, on the other hand, have been vocal against the whole policy ushered by the PM Narendra Modi.
The Election Commission of India has clearly stated its capability to organise parallel Lok Sabha and Assembly Elections in all the states and Union Territories.
Although India awaits Lok Sabha Elections in 2019, the Election Commission will be able to organise simultaneous elections by September this year. Thus what the opposition parties are crying about, is all about opposition in the name of opposition.
PM Narendra Modi cannot be referred to as dictator as he sought for opinions of all including people, Constitutional and Academic experts and politicians from all parties. It seems that Indian opposition is still yet to figure out a truly deserving candidate against Narendra Modi!
