|As I read above saying that it saves money, made a bit of confusion. Look the elections are conducted on a specific day and all over India in all states, casting 3 votes and there is a necessity of voting machines more than now used. Every single constituency need a good voting machine on the same day same time. So we could think about the no: of voting machines and so there expenses.|
|Rakesh said: (Oct 22, 2019)|
|Hello friends, in my opinion one nation one election is not a better idea. Because if we are watching only the advantage of it, but we are not focusing on the some loss of it, during one election many resignal parties may be loss their existence in the flow of national parties. Because national parties majority is more than resignal parties. In 1966-67 elections this process has used but after result election commission change this decision. So we want to make better this present election system we require to do some new change an awareness of people.|
|Pavan Kumar said: (Oct 19, 2019)|
|I think in my point of view, it's an amazing idea.
One election provides us a lot of benefits like money save and time save and also people will have a clear idea of election and we expect perfect ruling. So many people are confusing about elections like some states conducting elections before or after the actual time.
The major disadvantage is security forces during election time and the distribution of money all around the country.
|Anshoo Singh said: (Oct 9, 2019)|
|First of all thank for giving me a chance.
I am not favour of one nation one election because it is possible that winning party started play role of dictatorship.
In my opinion there are a lot of options. We can schedule lok sabha and rajya sabha election simultaneously so that we can save money.
|Uday Teja Bandaru said: (Jun 19, 2019)|
|In my perspective, one nation has its own advantages and disadvantages. Advantages are government does not have to worry about elections of a particular state that is to come in the tenure of central government and it can plan welfare programs more confortably. Saves lots of amounts of money. Money flow can be minimised, As election commisioner is independent, he can act more stringently and it would be difficult to mobilise money all around country. Disadvantages are if the elected government is unstable, it is possible the house be dissolved as it happend in 1979, 1991, 1998. If would be big blow for regional parties of certain which formed their assemblies with absolute majority and has to end up dissolved. And if certain state assemblies are unstable and ended up for dissolution let us say 2 years, and state can not have elected govt till next elections, there would be autocracy by governers and beaurocrats. Welfare programmes during the presidents rule rests in the hands of presidents and governers without discussion, they can pass the laws. If the central government does not like a particular party coming to power in a hung assembly (no majority for any party) , governor gives chance to party that cannot form govt, it can indirectly rule the state through governor by saying that no one got majority and declares governor rule. If an mp or mla passes away the seat remains vacant till end of the tenure of central government, so there would be no representation for people for those constituencies. I conclude the it may be cost efficient and less complex if there is one nation one election, but it is better than being under governors rule with out any reresentation for the people.|
|Manthan Gandhi said: (Mar 26, 2019)|
|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?
|Jay Patel said: (Mar 18, 2019)|
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.
|Vak said: (Mar 2, 2019)|
|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.|
|Laxman said: (Sep 30, 2018)|
|According to me, this concept is very useful to save the money and time. And also hole India one govt is essential.|
|Vipin said: (Sep 15, 2018)|
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.
|Paresh said: (Aug 17, 2018)|
|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.
|Roshan said: (Aug 16, 2018)|
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.
|Harshita said: (Aug 8, 2018)|
|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.|
|Priya Suryawanshi said: (Aug 3, 2018)|
|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.
|Shashank said: (Jul 22, 2018)|
|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.
|Dinesh Kumar said: (Jun 16, 2018)|
|According to me "One India One Election" is possible but require lot of hard work before implementation. We all know that India is 2nd largest country in the world in population. So lot of pre arrangement required like election commission need to proper planning for it. Security will be major concern to center government. As every coin has to side so there will be lot of pros and cons of it.
1. One India one election government can save public money and can spend this amount for betterment of people.
2. Every political party spend money and time to attract public. By doing this they can spend this amount and time to serve state people.
3. Corruption is one main reason that why our country is growing properly. It will help to reduce the level of corruption.
|Gokul said: (May 21, 2018)|
|One country one election is productive in small nations but in case of India. The major problem is that due to large population which needs more security for conducting election in fair means. If we try to conduct one election in a safer manner then arise the problem of current situation ie the dispute between neighbouring states or with the central government. If we try to conduct one election in one Nation then large sum of money can be saved if conducted successfully but if fails due to any reason more money will be wasted than now.|
|Kunal Phatak said: (May 11, 2018)|
One India One Election is indeed a productive Idea for our country. Being the biggest democracy of the world we are facing election in every six months. Panchayat elections, Nagar palika elections, Various state elections and then General elections. Time, money, Manpower used to conduct so many elections can be saved and utilized where it is required by conduction One Election.
|Sachin Kumar said: (Apr 16, 2018)|
|Hello friends, holding of both state and central government election at the same time is good. It has many benefits like saving money, saving time.
But one election at a time is possible for the small populated country. As we know that India is vast country and have a 2nd highest population in the world. So it is not easy to handle election at the same time.
And also a major problem of falling of coalition government in any state which would lead to again election. So do it time and money.
|Bavita Kumari said: (Mar 14, 2018)|
This is Bavita, in my point of view, "One India One Election" which is announced by our PM Narendra Modi is not practically possible. "One India One election" means state election and the central election will be held together. Initially, it was started on 1952 and was continued till 1967. I know every coin has two sides one pros and other cons, but we should go to the side which will be more beneficial for the common people. There are also some pros which are following:
- it will save time and money both (for example In 2014, 45 corers spend for Lokshabha election only which is wastage of money in same money both elections can be taken).
-will reduce corruption.
Inspite of these there are many cons:
-will be difficult to arrange all the process at the same time.
-security problem because of lack of central forces.
-federal system will be changed (federal system means differentiation in power of state govt and central govt. ) or we can say that it will centralise the democracy system.
-election machinery or source is not sufficient.
If the central govt fell down for any reason then whole the process will take place again and wastage of money. For example, in 1996 Atal Bihari Bajpey felled in case of this type of situation election will take place also repeatedly. There is one more thing if both state and the central election will be held simultaneously then that time all the govt will be focused on the election and all the decision and policies will remain in pending. Hence in my point of view this idea is not beneficial also not practically possible.
|Hemanttt said: (Feb 23, 2018)|
As per my point of view, we need separate election for every post. There are different points which we have to observe. Firstly if any person not able to vote on that day then he/she not able to vote for 4 years.
Second, if any party giving an agenda for 4 year and people vote on that basis then they may force complete their agenda without knowing another side of agenda.
Practically if election carried out by considering one man show then many skilled people of different parties lose their chance.
Other side has considerable pros, one election results in the good management of manpower. In India 65% of the students are studying in government schools and it is found that 25% teachers are absent on single day. This numbers are serious, so we have to use our manpower in proper manner.
|Nagaraj Rathod said: (Feb 21, 2018)|
|Yes, I extend my great support to this issue, as we know that in our country every year there will be some election like assembly, loksabh, grampanchyat, municipality election and much more do we really need this?
As we know that for such arrangement money is being used like water by political parties for their canvas, rallies and other events. It would be a great initiative if such thing take place in our country with this we can save our precious money and can be used it in another work, it will benefit to us only because with this we can save our valuable time as well as political parties can also focus on their work instead of bothering about election. If it is being implemented then it would be a revolutionary steps in Indian politics history.
|Asha Kanta Sharma said: (Feb 18, 2018)|
|Huge expenditure on election campaigns and rallies are mere wastage of money. India is a developing nation which has a lot many priorities in its list to be fulfilled to compete in this world. Right from the basic necessities of food, shelter, to the demand of the era like education, employment, civic necessities etc. , we need to invest a lot on these.
We definitely lack funds to use for the right cause, but India cannot be called a poor nation, as we have loads of money with the rich and stronger section of the society under the cover of black money. We have much uncountable, cash to spend for the election campaign which would not yield anything productive for the society or nation. These campaigns are mere show off to the society to popularize an unfamiliar face who is going to contest election and will become unfamiliar once again following the election period.
Despite wasting crores of rupees on these worthless campaigns, they can be used for feeding the poor section of the society and spreading literacy and awareness among the ignorant masses. Infrastructure to the educational institutions, medical facilities, building civic amenities etc. Could itself popularize a governing body without the requirement of these campaigning.
|Shailendra Shukla said: (Feb 5, 2018)|
|One India one election means the election of states and Central government at the same time. I think that a good step for saving a money which has wastes in every election. We know that elections of state governments of different states conducted by the election commission in every 6 months, this causes wastage of lot of money and time so I think government take a decision to conducting the election of states and central government at the same time, we know that it is difficult to conduct but not impossible. This is my opinion.
|Shubham said: (Feb 4, 2018)|
|Hello friends, I would like to present a whole new view to the undergoing discussion on one India one election.
Many of us think that it is a great idea to conduct elections at the same time but I would like to contradict the thought because if all central and state elections are conducted at the same time then we are givin away the power to a single political party to rule for five years by taking away the competition. A goverment ruled by particular party can take harsh decisions that may not be in public interest and the public can't do anything to oppose the decisions taken by the goverment because it was elected by the public itself. Goverments may not function up to the point because they may not have any fear of loosing any further state or central elections upto next five years. There may not be any strong oppositions because of the lack of interest of winning any elections till the next five years so the whole country may become unregulated due to absence of strong opposition. Now the elections are conducted at different timeframes in different regions that gives the people the right to express their feelings about the existing state and central goverment by casting their votes and in this way the goverment also functions in the common interest due to the fear of loosing upcoming elections.
The benifits or pros of conducting one nation one election is obvious but these are the major cons that needs to be thought of carefully before implementing anything baised on the views of certain people.
|Jitender said: (Jan 22, 2018)|
|Good Morning to all of you.
As the topic is one India one election for today discussion and I'm going to give my best to approach the topic and what I saw that too many friends don't understand the thought line one India one election.
It means that both state election and centeral election conducted at the same time. In our country state government election and centeral (national) govt election held after 5 year of interval at different time.
Suppose in India there are 28 states and in 5-6 state election conducted every year and the centeral govt who ruled the nation can put their money for this election rather put their power/authority to solve the problems of nation and compaign the election and waste the govt money. So conducting elections at different interval of time at perticular state can waste a lot of money and increases corruption and decrease our economy rate.
So friends I would like to say that conduct central and state election parallely. I know its a very difficult for election party to conduct the both election in a one day or manage all the things such as security, awareness among the peoples, maintain the decorom in a country. And India is a 2nd largest population in a country and in huge amount so its very difficult to arrange all these stuff in a very short period of time. But My dear friends.
Nothing is impossible untill and unless we try wholeheartedly for it.
So there are some pros and cons for conducting state and central election at a same time.
1. Save the money of gov and increase the economic condition of a country.
2. Eradicate the corruption from our country.
3. Build the strong leader who has a power of authority to control all these situations.
1. Very difficult to arrange all these stuff such as security and aware the peoples because some are poor who are not aware so much and think what's change if they give their vote so they think it's a waste of time and money.
2. Security is the main problem because if both election help at the same time and no one rule the nation at that time and some people can riot in cities. And at time safety is much measure issue to safeguard peoples and prevent riots against the law.
Thank you, guys.
Have a good day.
|Adarsh said: (Jan 8, 2018)|
One India one election is a good step supported by PM Narendra Modi. In our country, election is being held in every 6 months so government don't get a free hand to work due to the implementation of model code of conduct. Ruling party also don't want loose elections so some time considering the vote they don't take good steps which are really needed. It will also save the expenses of polls.
|Antarjyami Jena said: (Dec 9, 2017)|
My opinion is it might be better to conduct the election of state and at the same time. But it would be very difficult in a single day execute, it will be easy if it is conducted. Or anther point is I think leader Cannot approach all state equally. We can not a well smart and highly intelligent person can easily manage? It's very difficult moment in one India one election this is my view.
|Harsita said: (Nov 30, 2017)|
The topic given to us is one India one Election. Its quite good concept to implement because it works in the way to reduce the corruption rate during the elections. In every 5years it born with a new government having the aim to improve the whole country in a single race. It's not the thing about one country one government its about the election. So the result after each 5years is quite crystal clear which enhance the decision capabilities of the public about the government So it's a good step.
|Chetan said: (Nov 26, 2017)|
One-India, One-Election is one of the best though but the implementation of this idea for our country takes some time because the single party cannot handle the entire state's problem at a time. This idea reduces the expenses which is helpful for the economic growth of our country.
|Patil said: (Nov 21, 2017)|
As we know our topic is One India One Election. I think we should proceed this discussion in fruitful approach by first discussing different advantages and disadvantages of conducting one election throughout the country for state as well as Central Government.
In my point of view, I want to present few cons of conducting one election are.
1. India is a 2nd most populated country with 1.2 billion population divided within 29 states and 6 union territories if elections are conducted at the same time it will lead to the huge demand of security, facilities, logistics, and proper organization of elections which is very difficult to manage.
2. If the election happens at the same time then each and every government will be focussed on elections for that period which will lead to high negligence of government toward public welfare and they will totally focus on elections and all reforms and important policies, decisions will be kept pending for that period of time.
3. It will lead to instability of government for the election period.
4. At the single point of time, the government will have to spend a huge amount of capital on this.
5. It will be tough to monitor all the elections simultaneously and put a lot of burden on Election commission.
|Sravs Medam said: (Nov 15, 2017)|
I think it's better to implement one India one election cause every year our government is wasting a huge amount of money during elections. It might be better to conduct the elections of state and central at same time. But it would be very difficult in a single day to execute. It will be easy if it is conducted in stages. This may improve our country's economic status.
|Ashwani Nigam said: (Oct 23, 2017)|
|"one India One Election" lucid enough!
But what I see here that most of the ppl didn't anticipate very well the gist of the quoted line; here it is said that election in India which usually happens in two tiers like Central election (general election) and State elections (for different states), so the question is whether it's ok to go on with this mode of elections or we should introspect now and have elections (both type) in single phase; like central and state election happening parallel. But ppl here thought like it is written "One India One Government", no it's not that friends. We are a federal state and we can't have one government for the whole nation.
Pros: If both elections would have done in same time, one thing is very clear that it going to save huge amounts of the sum, which was earlier wasted sporadically. Secondly, this will put an end to filthy statecraft because the whole country will watch them for a period (5yrs) and can analyse the performance on whole time basis and pan India levels. Thirdly, Government will focus on the welfare of the public more instead of giving attention to frequently coming different states elections.
So friends whole country will have a complete makeover of the government at every root level. Every 5 years a new India will take a birth leaving behind filthy politics.
People will take this - One India One Election serious because it will gonna happen on a single day, and faith for the whole country is going to be decided.
I know some people here will whine and complain that our country is very huge and it is not possible to have an election on a single day, but, friends, INDIA is very diversified and huge, though we are world's largest democracy, counting every single person for his vote.
Nothing is impossible until and unless you try wholeheartedly for it.
|Sigina said: (Oct 20, 2017)|
|Now we have two elections. State government and central government. When it reduces to one there is only one leader for 28 states. So the leader will take more and more responsibilities to each state. It's maybe a tough job to a leader. I think the leader cannot approach all state equally. We can not predict MAY BE a well smart and highly intelligent person can easily manage? In my opinion, one India, one election is difficult.|
|Hitesh said: (Oct 6, 2017)|
|One India one election concept is I think quite difficult in the country like India considering its huge and growing population but there will be pro of the same if implemented.
Pros : The increasing no of political parties will be shut off and only few will be there that will prevent us from various political threats such as corruption and all.
Cons : Difficult handle the situations in the country as of now instead o having such a different elections and leaders not helping anymore, As there are many states in India the leader elected somewhat will consider a particular state greater than others, etc.
The Conclusion is it cannot be implemented in our country.
|Saswati said: (Oct 1, 2017)|
|It is a good concept but implementing it in India is almost impossible because India is a huge country being 2nd largest in population. The state government of every state helps in solving problems like drainage agriculture etc. If one election pattern is followed then all this petty work would also put a pressure on the central govt which may hinder other important work of the central govt and people would also face difficulty in getting justice as mentioned above as the matters would straight away go to central govt which also has taken after the nation overall. So this would create difficulty in managing and controlling a country.|
|Rahul Saini said: (Sep 20, 2017)|
|The best I think is in INDIA itself, I mean why we need to learn from other countries when our state wise population is more than compared to them stand alone. Its Uttar Pradesh, how they do it, simple! in stages.
So one election in INDIA is totally possible. We just have to do it in stages, not one day. It will change the country for better.
|Aditi Singh said: (Sep 20, 2017)|
|Being the 7th largest country in the world and 2nd largest by population, I think it will be very difficult to implement One Election in India. It will surely be a good decision in geographically smaller countries. As if Government gets success in implementing it, then this step will save a huge amount of money which is used in holding elections in different states.|
|Sandeep Sahu said: (Aug 8, 2017)|
|I think that for India, it is very difficult because India has population approx 130 crores. If there is no state then how will we able to solve problem effectively that is handled by state government. If we have small problem like drainage problem and other small issue so we can not able solve as soon as possible that state government is easily handled.
One biggest problem is that Indian constitution is a written constitution. So how our government change this policy. It is totally against our constitution.
|Supraja said: (Aug 8, 2017)|
|From my point of view, "One India One Election" it is quite difficult to implement as India is a big country and it is very difficult to manage a huge country. We can't run to central for small disputes going within a state which must be solved by the state under the concerned person. Dictatorship will create a negative impact on the functioning of government.|
|Mukesh said: (Aug 4, 2017)|
|According to me, 'one India one Election' is possible in India but I would like to inform you that every thing has some Pros and some Cons. Positivity is that its save money which fluid in an election like water and central government easy to handle country by divide all departments. But India is huge country and every state has different mindset so sometimes it's not working. I wish for one India one Election.|
|Malatesh Daddikoppa said: (Jul 31, 2017)|
I am malatesh in my view, It is right decision to grow our country.
One India one election means both state and Central govt election happened same time.
When happened both state and Central govt election suddenly expenses was comes down in such case that amount we can invest in economic growth for our country.
India currently having more than 125 crores population so it very hard to handle each and every place in election time.
|Akansha Nigam said: (Jul 28, 2017)|
I am very happy to know about your views towards this thought. I believe that it would be best to have One India One Election but as an individual it's hard to accept it. Because India is demographically large country. There are many pros and cons it has especially money we use for such elections. Yes we would save money by implementing it but many people those who are not economically and financially strong even not much knowledge they have so certainly they would suffer alot for every things like justice. We might get large help from One India One Election and can save money but if large number of people gets injustice what we would with that money, People those who who work for their survival would hardly get benefit from it. As an alternative I believe that to avoid the expense and time on elections our Govt should start Online Voting system. They can implement it and even we increase the voter too from anywhere by giving rights to vote from any state or country to his particular region. We all know that we have had an average of 70% voting but we can increase it to 90% if we would start online voting system. We would save money either. If a person has rights to votes for his particular leader from any of the states or country he stays then we would get a right leader and also it would be for great cause.
But One India One Election would be very hard for ordinary man.
Thanks & Regards,

|We are living in a huge country. So there are elections going on in every part of the country every month. Because of these elections, code of conduct is applicable to those parts which are going through elections. This result in slow decision making as for when the code of conduct is applicable the government can't take a decision in favour of the public. It results in loss of time and money. Secondly, huge money is spent on elections. So there should be One election for the whole country. Thirdly, the government has to provide security for the elections through which security personnel are being deployed to various parts going through elections. This also results in a financial burden on the government. Fourth point and the important point is One election helps in maintaining the importance of elections in the country. This is because People will get free from regular voting. They just need to come out for voting once or twice a year.|

|One India one election will definitely change India. Elections are the worst events for our new generation as well as developing India. It just wastage of time when a youth is engaged in a conveyance for the political party they just get nothing but it opposite political parties is highly renowned. In terms of students live, it has seems that so many elections face by the student in their study period. Most of them students are getting stuck with them while rest confuse in their to take a big decision. It should stop and one election policy is started as soon as possible so that people time, stress and wealth can be saved and liable to be applied only one time to choose our leader.|

|One India One Election is good but nowadays our country politicians are totally corrupted excepted few. So my view is that election must be conducted once in a year. We have to refresh our government by electing new persons. When we give our country to bad politicians, then our country will be in danger. So we have to elect the person very carefully. When we elect a wrong person also it must be changed within a year. I know it takes huge time, but we citizens are spending more time on unnecessary things, we can spend some time in choosing a leader for our country. Our country, we will protect us always.|
|Varun Chetla said: (Jun 30, 2017)|
|Yes, I agree. In my point of view, one country one election best thing because once should be conducted state and central peoples also participate independently to elect good person. And save the huge amount time.
In Parliament don't have good support no project will be no passed towards so.

|I am in favour of One India One Election. This is because of the following advantages country can gain.

One India One Election may affect the credibility of the election. It may happen because the party which is in power may get illegal benefit from the election. But this may be controlled by little effort of the election commission. As India is the huge country it is difficult to perform elections in every part of the country.

|Firstly, the decision of making one India one election is a good initiative because there will be transparency in elections. By make in India policy taken up by our PM Sir will make achievement come through by order. But, not only this It Ultimately helps the Indian citizen in deciding government on their opinion/views/ideas. Which in-order make the better administrative on their choices.
If we talk about the regional parties or national parties it doesn't matter what party is ruling they must work according to the elected voters.
Where there will keenly concentrate on people benefits and the welfare of the country instead of making the Double-think of their self ambition.

|Good evening to one and all.
According to me, one India one election is good for nation. If it takes place, riots will reduce in our different states and UTs because when the election takes place, there is a chance to commit the crime and riots between people of the both parties. So by conducting one election, we can also be saved valuable time of our respectable employees.
|Anamika said: (Jun 22, 2017)|
The topic is about the pros and cons of One India One Election. Now, this particular system has its own positive and negative impacts. I would like to say that overall it is a good system as it reduces cost of elections in different states, reduces corruption level. And provides for unity. However it must be insured that tne particular leader chosen for our country is worthy enough to look after the whole country. And he is the one to be dependant on and he has to look after all the states equally. Thank you.

|One India one election can be happened only by the consensus of all regionals and big political parties. Adding to my point it needs many big constitutional reforms by the government that are the big hurdle in the way of applying policy. But behind an immense mountain sun arise as well as it gives a very great gift of development to our country. My opinion it is necessary to allow one India one election policy.|
|Vishal Sharma said: (Jun 21, 2017)|
|As my view, a common election is needed to our country. Because there are 29 states and 7 UTs and central election also done time by time. It takes lots of time and attention of our political parties. So having a single election in the country for all states and uts as well as a center at one time is good for an intere st of the country. It will also the draw the attention of our political leaders to think about our country in a batter way without the disturbance of interim elections.|
|Rohit Bansal said: (Jun 20, 2017)|
I think One India One election is good for country as India is a democratic country so with this people can save their time. Most of the time it happens state and union government are from different parties so the coordination of both doesnot match and people of the country have to face problem.
|Marepally Bixam said: (Jun 15, 2017)|
|In my point of view, One India One election is a good thought. Inorder to implement this, we need a huge security otherwise riggings and frauds may happen. So tightening the security is the first step to implement this. Otherwise it will become a man made disaster. So I support this thought if security is good and implementation is stronger.|
|Hemant said: (Jun 10, 2017)|
One India one election is a good idea of the government. Yes, it has a lot of benefits because it will save not only time but money as well. Most of the people don't vote both of the election because everyone is busy but with this idea the polling percentage increase much higher which is very good for any country's democracy.
|Sahdev said: (Jun 5, 2017)|
|One India one election is a very good idea and it should be executed. Because most of the time of ruling govt is goes in the election campaign and at the same time for different election every time we need teachers and other staffs which influence the education and govt system. It will help to save money since in a single election for every state MLA's and MP's both will be finalised.|
|Adi said: (May 14, 2017)|
|Hi, when talking of one India one election it means the state govt and central government has to amalgamate thus this introduces simplicity, less indulgence of public, quick decision making, flexibility and improved taxation and financial. But this also makes some decision left unaddresse, more power at center and a sense of despair among individuals.|
|Medarametla Ajith Kumar said: (Apr 22, 2017)|
In my view, one India one election is a greate idea. One India one election means both centre and state elections conducted at one time.
In India, every year 5-6 state elections are going on at that time the central government put concentration on those states for campaigning and they waste lots of government money.
And one more point, for example, the implementation of GST the BJP government take 3 years for implementation because they don't have a full majority in Rajyasabha. If one India one election is possible the government which form in central they have full majority in both Lok sabha and Rajyasabha then they can easily implement the god policies.
|Neeraj said: (Apr 19, 2017)|
"One India One Election" this is our topic to discuss and I am going to deliver my best possible views on it with the help of your sharing.
Let me first explain the clear picture of the two elections which take place in front of us. A. State Government Election. B. Center Government Election.
A. State Government Election= This is a state election in which we elect our CM with the help of elected MLA'S of the particular areas in the particular state. This election takes place after every five years (By election is the other thing which takes place in emergency). So with the help of this particular election we give safety only to our particular state. I mean there is a CM who is a king for its state and will take care entire state.
B. Center Government Election= This is a national election which covers whole country and we elect PM with the help of elected MP'S. PM is another king of the country as CM who takes control of whole country. PM is that personality who can apply any useful low for whole country but CM can watch only the particular state.
So now there is a question in our mind that when PM covers whole country so what is the need of CM for every state ? So answer is that our nation is a very big nation with the more & more population which is not fully mentally prepare to take the right decision at the right time I am not trying to say that all people but there is larger area with ruler gentry. PM is that personality who can not approach to all places that's why there is one more election facility to approach all people. And one thing also I want to add if one person will do everything for whole nation so it is obvious that, that person will tired and become frail physically and mentally.
Now let me explain Pros and Cons:.
* If one election takes place so election commission can save huge amount of money.
* We can consider less corruption because when everything would be in one hand so no one will use procrastination for the work.
* There would be unity among the people no one will show partiality with others.
* Riots will not take place using different-2 parties names.
* There would be difficult to approach all people even in difficulties.
* As our nation is developing country so no one will follow the lows strictly because government will being far away from the places.
* Now people fear that there is a big leader near us and in absence of that they will not fear and might do some illegal activities.
* There are small-2 things which are still outstanding at all places to complete even there is a big leader so you can thing when there will be no one for.
Finally, I'd say that our country is developing the country and there is a need of a big leader with the power of authority for all places so that all outstanding things can take place in the proper manner in the society. We all know that each work needs a lot of force to do that and because of one election now we can miss that force to complete our work. I mean more hands more help less hands less help.
|Ravi said: (Apr 18, 2017)|
|Hi, I am Ravi.
According to my opinion, A one country one election is a right choice. For our country, because that time India has a democracy country & we are at that time India has a developing country, not a developed country.
As a one-time, the election we can save lots of money to build our country.
|Manojkumar Rajendran said: (Apr 16, 2017)|
One India one election is highly welcomable.
5-year tenure of all elected politicians following the below pattern.
First, 1-2 year - they are implementing most attractive poll promises.
2 year onwards they will less concentrate on development activity.
From the end of 3 yr, I will start attracting people by implementing important projects and resolving the regional issues and thereby maintain their incumbency. Because of the fragmented election in each state, a lot of things are not happening properly. So one India one election will eliminate such things. Moreover, it will reduce the cost for conducting the election. It will bring a uniform development and help in implementing dream projects like river linking projects etc.
|Akshay V Dhamangaonkar said: (Apr 13, 2017)|
|Hello I am Akshay.
According to my opinion, only one election in India is a good concept due to this corruption can be remove totally and in few year India in the list of develop country. But it is difficult but not impossible.
|Amiq Syed said: (Apr 12, 2017)|
|Hello Everyone, my opinion regarding this is it is a good idea but very difficult to happen. As we all knows that India is the second most populated country in the world having a huge mass of people around 125 crores 35 states. If we want to conduct a single election in entire India then we nothing get good results. Large Security is required for the control the criminal and unwanted activity at a time and for maintaining peace. Think could it possible in India? More pressure on the government.|
|Anna said: (Apr 10, 2017)|
According to me, one India one election is not suitable for such a large area country in which second highest population exist of the world. One government Can't handle the problem of all the people and people also can't go at that one place to take their problem to waste their money and time even for small issues and surety of solution is not confirmed. If small area government Will be there it can provide the solution to everyone without very much time delay as compared to central government Although election expenditure will reduce but the development of the country is more important. One govt will have difficulty in development, providing education, employment of everyplace. Govt procedure is very slow, one govt will take the time to solve everyone's problem. When the judgement is needed and it will not get on time then what will be the benefits of it.
So, the one election is not much effective for such large area and Democratic country India.
|Bhor Sagar said: (Mar 29, 2017)|
According to my opinion, it is not impossible to one India One Election, It will become possible When India will Elect their member in parliament and in Legislative Assembly Based on UPSC And MPSC system then and then India Will Become Developed country and it will achieve their goal of One India One Election.
|Prateek said: (Mar 28, 2017)|
|Yes. I agree that implementation of one India one election is a very tough job for us, but if decided nothing is impossible. Take an example of demonetization. Wasn't it a tough job? but the conditions are normal now. Similarly, One India One election can be possible.
As per today's situation of election, there is time lag between the central and state elections. During state elections, Ruling party always try to win in state elections. At that time they diverted from the path of Development of country and the focus is on establishing the power in state. In India, there are elections after every 5 to 6 months. Half time of ruling party goes in publicity, speeches and meetings. Also, there is lot expenditure of money and time also. Then how and when India will be the Developed Nation. Developed Countries like USA has one country One election. So we can also Think about One India One Election.
But before implementing this there needs to make strong our Election Commission and Security. To educate and guide people about this. Then only It will be possible. If we become successful in implementing this it will always helpful for us and our Country.
|Ashutosh said: (Mar 28, 2017)|
|In country as diverse as India religiously, ethnically and linguistically it would be an ardous task to conduct a singular election. It will only lead to more communal tension as in India vote banks are created on the basis of religious predilections which infact is the biggest failure of Indian democracy. There are bound to be more opposition to this idea than the support it will incur.|
|Sushil said: (Mar 20, 2017)|
|Hey, I think one India one election would be a great step if implemented. But it looks near to impossible to bring in force as India is very large country. If the whole of India goes to election simultaneously then it will take a long time to complete due to staff and security constraints. Also during that period country come to a halt in terms of work and development. All political parties of all states put all their energy towards election campaign and common people work will take a back sheet.
|Marcus Felix said: (Mar 16, 2017)|
|India being a highly populated country, its impossible to bring a sudden change in the election procedures & that to "One India One Election" requires a lot of study.
According to me its not suitable for the present system that is established in our country due to lack of facilities and if at all by chance there are some disputes it would be tough to control the elections.
|Javed Ansari said: (Mar 2, 2017)|
|According to me, one election is profitable for Indian government because in India state government spends Hugh amount money for states elections and government works freely without any restrictions due to this Indian growth are increased.|
|Abhijit said: (Mar 1, 2017)|
|I think it favors having not of one India one election as it is also possible to get elect a corrupt government If really such happen then such govt. Will make our country as a country with no resource in all aspects because of such govt. Will rule our country for next 5-year n for me it is enough to make a country without anything. Therefore one election should not be held as it gives boost to unnecessary and corrupt govt. Moreover, if such election process does exist in Indian we wouldn't have a man like PM Modi.|
|Sweethi said: (Feb 27, 2017)|
|Good noon everyone.
I won't support this because India is a big country hence a single leader can't control whole government. If problems of the people won't be able to reach to the government.
|Avijeet said: (Feb 16, 2017)|
|India really need one election because any party in it's whole 5 year try to focus on election in other states instead of focusing the growth of the state where they are ruling and every time when we conduct election we use huge amount of money.
But implementation is not that easy as India is a big country so we should start first merge 2, 3, 4 and so on. And at last when we come to know now we have sufficient administration and proper planing then and only then we should combine all state and central election together.
|Dhaval said: (Feb 15, 2017)|
|If one election is held in India it will be a great opportunity to gain profit, but on otherside we also have to think about everyone's mind. Everyone will vote his/her country's candidate, hence there will be no meaning to one India one election.|
|Taj said: (Feb 14, 2017)|
|According to my opinion, one India one election is very good idea, in the election time politicians spending more money on elections, like publicity and etc. To getting votes from public, so I think one India one election is a way to develop our country, the main advantage of one election is to save the money and time also, if one election held India, the govt achieve more profits, India is a developing country, so it very uses full to our country, and it is quite difficult, but it's not impossible,|
|Chirag said: (Feb 13, 2017)|
One India one election are very good idea because India is very big country. If one election is held India very big amount of profit achieve in favor of time and money. Every year India must need to a large amount of money to the processing of election. Despite this all security guard, schools and different types of management done by the election commission. In India every six-months the election processed in any one state.
If one election is to be held in India there will be very profit by India govt.
|Swyam Gupta said: (Feb 7, 2017)|
|According to me, One India one election is a very good option for our country as India is a very big country and an election is always there either in state or in central and due to these elections sometimes political parties or the elected politicians can not work freely in their elected state or even in the central because they feel that the strict steps taken by them will results in their loss in the coming election so when there is one election in each five years so they are free to take any decision for five years, moreover it saves public money also which can be utilised in various other development projects.|
|Heena said: (Feb 5, 2017)|
|Democratic countries like India. There was certainly not only one election happened as my opinion towards this.
Every person has different opinions. Every state have different political parties. They join 'gatbhan' so it need not be one election - pros and cons.
|Richa said: (Feb 3, 2017)|
|According to me, one India one election is the better option for the country. Through this, we can save lots of money and that money can be used for country development. Our country is a developing country not developed country, so we have to spend money very carefully.|
|Deepak Kumar Jaiswal said: (Jan 30, 2017)|
|Holding the Lok Sabha elections along with elections to assembly and panchayats is not that easy a process. It will have various complications as the villages and the cities together gear for voting. There may also be shortage of administrative staff and security to look after the procedure. Less care at the voting centers may further incite trouble and corrupt processes being carried out unchecked. Booth capturing is not something people would want in exchange for saving on time.|
|Rahul said: (Jan 30, 2017)|
|All the people failed to understand one India one election meaning. It basically means holding of the elections of the centre and the state together.|
|Vipul said: (Jan 25, 2017)|
|India is very big country. It has too many states which have different state government. These government can't be merged into one single government because they have too many different cultures and the lifestyle.|
|Niza said: (Jan 22, 2017)|
|This is an appreciable initiative of our prime minister Narendra Modi. India is a democratic country. There are twenty-eight states and union territories. Having election in all these states and union territories one by one is not only tiresome but it also requires a large amount of money to conduct.
Politicians from different parties spend their maximum time in planning strategies for their party, they become greedy. Instead of giving full attention to problems of common people by whose support only they are in politics, they make plans so that how they can get maximum votes and remain in power.
Thus, as a result, common public is the sufferer. People's problems are not taken up effectively and as a result, they want center to intervene. So in maximum cases, center has to be involved to sort out the problems. Thus if are involving center in solving our disputes, then why not give full power to center.
But as a common saying everything has two sides. If center becomes all in one, the problems of state won't be addressed properly. There will be more chances of disputes among states as center will treat every state equally. But all states are not comparable either technology wise or progress wise. Some are fully efficient, have all kinds of resources which others lack.
Thus we can't say that yes this is better or that is better. Both have their own pros and cons.
|Nitin said: (Jan 21, 2017)|
I am Nitin.
I think there should be one India one election. Because on every election our country spends huge amount of money. If the elections are taken at one time, there will be great saving of money. And both central and state government will have same time for working and there will be good correlation between the governments.
|Ashish said: (Jan 20, 2017)|
|In India, as cosmopolitan nature is there so different ministers can only understand the problems of their people. As mindset is different in different regions of the country dictatorship or one rule is not possible also it will have a negative impact on overall functioning of the country.|
|Neha said: (Jan 11, 2017)|
I am Neha from Banka.
My opinion one election and one India is a very difficult activity so I say that government to is very very easy to beautiful other words for all people in making.
|Aafiya said: (Jan 10, 2017)|
I am Aafiya.
In my opinion, one election and one party or rather I should say Dictatorship won't work in India as it's a cosmopolitan country and we are much used to of our democracy. Dictatorship can easily work in small countries and in the countries where literacy rates are higher.
|Pankaj Kumar Sasmal said: (Jan 6, 2017)|
According to me, it is impossible to make one election. If we made it possible then, what will happen at the time of dissolve of ministry. Who will control over the India? If such kind possible then it will be previously discussed in our constitution.
So in conclusion, it is not possible one India one election.
|Sanjay Singh said: (Jan 3, 2017)|
In my opinion, one election is not possible, if it would have possible then we would not have stated, I would like to justify my points by saying that Uttrakhand got separated, C.G got separated from U.P and M.P respectively as proper planning and division of work will exist.
|Nishant Bhatt said: (Dec 30, 2016)|
|I think it is a quite difficult as India is a huge country and it is very difficult for one government to manage the country. One government in the sense central government. Some of the local issues and decisions must be taken by state government for quick resolution and development. One country one election thought is useful for small countries not for demographically large country like India.|
