Amit Shah, Meghwal meet Kovind

Ram Nath Kovind


New Delhi, September 6

Home Minister Amit Shah and Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal on Wednesday met former president Ram Nath Kovind who heads the committee on simultaneous polls here, days after the government notified the panel, sources said. They described the nearly hour-long meeting as a "courtesy call". Efforts are on to hold the first meeting of the high-level committee in the coming days and a venue is being finalised.

The meetings in future could also be held in hybrid mode, they said. The law ministry, it is learnt, is in the process of nominating officers who would help the panel and offer it secretarial assistance.

On Saturday, the government had notified the high-level committee under Kovind to look into and make recommendations on the issue of holding synchronised polls to the Lok Sabha, state Assemblies and local bodies.

On Sunday, top law ministry officials had briefed Kovind and had sought to know how he would like to go about the mandate of the committee. Home Minister Shah, senior advocate Harish Salve, former Lok Sabha secretary general Subhash Kashyap, chairman of the 15th Finance Commission NK Singh, former CVC Sanjay Kothari and former leader of the opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad are its members.
