Will One Nation One Election save BJP and Modi
Posted [relativedate] at [relativetime time_format=”H:i”]
The debate over the One Nation One Election scheme is being strongly heard in the political circles. Be it the lack of confidence, or uprising anti-Modi wave, the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre is keen with the One Nation One Election plan. Even the President, Ram Nath Kovind pronounced the same during his speech on the first day of the Budget session.
PM Modi expressed that, conducting elections for every 4-6 months in different states is very costly and hectic. The cost of conducting Lok Sabha and State Assembly election is around Rs. 4500 crores. Besides the cost, it also ends the model code of conduct, which paralyses development in the states. Moreover, it can reduce huge burden on human resources.
In fact, the President, Ram Nath Kovind called for an all-party meeting to discuss the possibility of One Nation One Election Plan, and arrive at a consensus on the issue.
Meanwhile, political analysts feel that One Nation One Election scheme can save the Modi led-NDA government from a possible defeat in the 2019 General Elections. The backfiring of demonetization and GST (to an extent) did harm the BJP. Moreover, even if the One Nation One Election scheme comes into practice, it can be implemented in utmost 12 states currently.
