Legislative elections of 11 states can be held with the upcoming Lok Sabha elections next year and Maharashtra will also be included, sources said. That is, the government of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will face elections six months ago. The BJP has often introduced the role of ‘One Nation One Election’. According to sources, the assembly elections may be held in 11 states along with the Lok Sabha.
Elections will be held in Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand with the Lok Sabha elections. The term of the Assembly of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Jharkhand and Mizoram ends in the end of the year. Elections in these states can be postponed for a few months and taken in the Lok Sabha. In the aftermath of the next year (after the Lok Sabha elections), the state elections where the term of the term is going to end is likely to be held for the elections.
Specially, today, Bharatiya Janata Party national president Amit Shah has written a letter to the Law Commission on the issue of ‘One Nation One Election’. Amit Shah has supported the proposal of the Legislative Commission, to be held simultaneously for assembly and Lok Sabha elections. Presently there are no elections in the country. These elections are not only due to the state government but also the functioning of the central government. Often elections are spent on large amounts of money. Apart from this, administration also suffers due to elections. Therefore, Amit Shah has said in the letter to the Law Commission that the elections in the country need to be held simultaneously.
Meanwhile, the Commission has prepared a draft for the Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha elections simultaneously. In order to discuss this, the Law Commission had called a meeting of political parties in July. Five other parties, including two components of the NDA, had supported the proposal. However, the remaining 9 parties had opposed this proposal. The political parties including JDU, Akali Dal, AIADMK, Samajwadi Party and TRS had supported the proposal of the Law Commission. The parties, Trinamool Congress, Aam Aadmi Party, Telugu Desam Party, DMK, JDS, AIFB, CPM, AIGUF and Goa Forward Party had opposed these parties. However, Kangrasan did not respond.
