BJP again makes pitch for ‘one nation, one poll’


Tribune News Service

New Delhi, February 20

The BJP on Tuesday backed the ‘one nation, one election’ concept in deposition before the committee chaired by former President Ram Nath Kovind. After the meeting, BJP chief JP Nadda said the party favoured simultaneous polls for the Lok Sabha, state assemblies and local bodies, and a uniform voter list for all three-tier polls.

“If that is not possible immediately, then Lok Sabha and assembly elections can be held together first. But in the longer run, local body polls should also be held alongside other elections. If that does not happen, it will defeat the purpose of the concept by way of frequent imposition of the model code of conduct,” Nadda said.
