I think the election for Lok Sabha and Rajyapal sabha should be in one particular time only. This will save lots of Efforts, time and Money. And it will also save 1 public holiday.
But the con is that Parties might appear once in 4 years and Opposition party might not contribute to anything.
But I think we should try this system and if not applicable then we should move forward to another.
What if the Winning party might do Good work?
As my opinion it is good. If we can do election and that election which group win that election, that political group has the time of next coming election. In that time, he get to put his power (use his brain) in developing our country.
According to me, an idea of one country one election is a nice but practically a little bit difficult. Here we have to concern a matter of management of both time and money. It is quite difficult for a huge country like India has a lot of political parties.
According to me, this concept is very useful to save the money and time. And also hole India one govt is essential.
My opinion, one election one nation should start because government busies some time to conduct election for many state and it focuses to manage the election on this pride after one India one election starting time and money save to other programs.
According to me, one India one election is a wonderful idea where we can have general elections and state assembly elections all together but it is very important now that we should have common census among all political parties of India.
If we see the history of Indian politics India used to have one election for general and state assemblies from 1952 to 1970 until Mrs Indira Gandhi, the then prime minister had to dissolve the central government, it is after that the scenario has changed much in Indian politics, there are only a few states which go for state elections along with Lok sabha elections while majority of state are having elections either after/before 1-2 or even after 3 years from Lok Sabha, so it would be not possible to dissolve these state assemblies without taking into consideration from the political parties.
Many of us believe that it will reduce the overall expenditure of elections but as per the news of economic times we need vvpat machines for the elections which will cost about 10000 crores which need to be replaced every 15 years, so instead of reduction, we are actually increasing the expenditure.
Government view with regard to one nation one election that it will help the government to get more time to implement policies which is not possible during elections because of moral code of conduct but in actual case the government is free to implement her existing policies it is only that they cannot introduce any new policies during election time.
So, I will start with pros of one nation one election:.
There are a bunch of benefit of single election India is always on mode of election it require lots of resources, money, time political parties gives more emphasize to election more than the work, it will help to making policy for state as well as center level, political parties can gives there more time to people rather than election.
Cons: If in India single election has taken place and a single party elected those single party not work properly in the center as well as state people do not have the option to change the government at least at state level current scenario of election people have chance to change government if government does not work properly in center. Also its difficult to implement a big country like India.
Elections have always been an issue of concern among the whole nation. Either its the results or the voting or the election campaigns these all have been like a fire spreading in the country. Honourable PM have come along an idea of "ONE INDIA ONE ELECTION". It is not new for our nation. Ths policy had been in implementation from 1952 since 1967. But the question arises if it is fruitful! Every person has its own point of view. According to some people, it would pave the way for the nation's growth while some say that it would not be possible to conduct all the centre and state elections simultaneously in such a large country like India. But what I think is it is not good even if possible for our country. It sounds very difficult as a large number of people would have to vote on a single day. The major problem would be the great rush and the resulting disputes and issues as well. It does not provide the platform for free and fair elections. Many people have the opinion that one election would help in saving money and lead to strong our economy but how many of you think that the money would actually be used for us. It would as usual be gone to the corrupt leaders. The one election also troubles the peace and security of our country. And if a single party would be elected both in the centre and any of some states that would be troubling for the state people as the government would not be that conscious as they have no fear of losing some other election and may rule in a dictator manner. At last, I would say that every issue has two sides like a coin. We all have different opinions. But we should be more careful while choosing something. I agree that the continuous elections every now and then is a problem leading to a hige wastage of money but 'one India one election' is not a true and beneficial solution to this problem for sure. I hope my thoughts have not hurt anyone's feelings and I am clear to everyone as well.
The topic of discussion is one India one election which means centre and state election should be held simultaneously.
Holding simultaneous elections will ensure consistency, continuity and governance, and elections then will only be the means to achieve this and not an end in themselves.
Implementing simultaneous polls would require a substantial shift from the status quo and would involve amendments to the Constitution and election-related laws.
This concept or idea is not new in India. After the independence and enforcement of constitution, the first election which was conducted in the year of 1952 was conducted simultaneously. It was in practical from 1952 to 1970 i.e. 1952, 1957, 1962 and 1967. This concept was ended when fourth Lok Sabha was dissolved early. This recommendation is again raised by our Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi and the idea is also supported by the President Mr Pranab Mukherjee.
Problems associated with Simultaneous Election.
1. Challenging Constitutional Provisions : In India, as we know that the Constitution is the supreme and land of all law. Constitution states that every law should be in conformity with the Constitution and all laws get its power from it. Article 83 (2) deals with the tenure of Lok Sabha that the tenure will be for 5 years unless dissolved earlier and the same for the state assembly under Article 172. State governments are also empowered that they can dissolve the assemblies before the tenure ends but the problem is this if they dissolve the assemblies for simultaneous election, it will be a violation of the Constitution. Article 356 empowers the president to dissolve the state assembly in case of emergency. It means the President is also bound by the Constitution.
2. Similar parties government in state and centre : After applying the idea of simultaneous election, there is the possibility of similar government at the state and centre level. It happened in the election of the year 1952, 1957 and 1962. It creates a problem when most of the voters want to elect a candidate in the state is that party which is not having any possibility to come to the centre. So at that time, the voter will not give the vote to that candidate while voting for that party which is having the possibility to come in the union. Thus there will not be fair voting and it will harm the soul of democracy and the situation will be just like a one-party rule in the whole nation and there will be no opposition to any action.
3. The consensus of the regional party :
It will be the biggest problem in the simultaneous election to have consent of regional party because there is always a tendency for voters to vote the same party in state and at the Centre in case the Lok Sabha polls and the state elections are held together and without the coordination of state parties simultaneous election is not possible.
4. Lack of paramilitary force:
In every election whether of state or centre the paramilitary force is needed. In 2016 election of Bihar legislative assembly election the chief minister Nitish Kumar demanded the paramilitary force for the election. This is my opinion that each state does not want to put its police during election due to fear of biases. So it is not possible to employ force in every state for the election because there is only 700-800 companies of paramilitary force are available as of now while 3500 companies are required.
Benefits of One Nation One Election.
1. There will be ample time for the state legislature to discuss on policy or to implement the policies.
2. It will reduce the cost of an election.
3. It will be good for those who reside outside India because if they come to vote on election then there will be an opportunity for them to vote in all elections at one time.
4. Frequent elections lead to senior leaders at the Centre getting involved with campaigning often at the cost of their ministerial work suffering.
Thus as we can say after the study of these arguments that there are strong arguments on both side. If the simultaneous election happens, there will be some problem for our nation but it is time to think beyond the boundaries and traditional limit and try to understand the implications of the simultaneous elections.
