New Delhi: Decision on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘one nation, one poll’ could be taken in the next few days as political parties are all gear up to meet the Law Commission of India to talk about the feasibility of simultaneous polls in the country.
Head of at least 14 political parties are programmed to meet the Commission on July 7, 8 and 10. However, two parties are expected to overlook the meeting.
Worth mention here Congress and Communist Party of India are yet to answer to the invitation, while CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury acted in response to the Commission asserting that the proposal is an effort to “trample upon the existing Constitutional scheme of parliamentary democracy”.
He noted that ‘one nation, one poll’ would be “a casualty on federalism”.
The Commission, led by Justice B S Chauhan, had reached out to all political parties and invited them to carry out meetings on the subject. Once all perspectives are taken into consideration, the law panel will put forward its report.
It is noted that Trinamool Congress, represented by a Supreme Court lawyer, will be the first one to hold talks to the Commission on Saturday, on the other hand, AIADMK will meet on Sunday and BJD on Tuesday.
