Last week, President Ram Nath Kovind addressed a joint session of both Houses of Parliament, urging all MPs to consider the government’s ‘one nation, one election’ concept while emphasising the need to ensure stringent punishment for crimes against women as part of efforts to build a secure nation.

“During the last few decades, due to frequent elections being held in some part of the country or the other, the pace and continuity of development programmes have been impacted,” he said.

“Our countrymen have demonstrated their wisdom by delivering a clear verdict… ‘One nation – simultaneous elections’ is the need of the hour, which would facilitate accelerated development, thereby benefitting our countrymen.

“With such a system in place, all political parties, will be able to better utilise their energy towards development and public welfare. Therefore, I urge all MPs to seriously ponder over this development-oriented proposal of ‘one nation – simultaneous elections’.”
