What will happen to this idea of simultaneous polls in States and the Lok Sabha?Though Mr. Modi has mooted the idea of simultaneous polls, one does not find any sort of consensus. The parties are totally divided. Whatever merits or demerits the proposal may have, wider debates on the issue seem to be totally missing.
Why not at least conduct sample polls to understand the mood of the people? Is it not a very big change? There will be a huge amount of logistics management that will be involved. It is not clear if the State police can handle so much pressure at the same time.
What do members feel? Mr. Modi seems to be honest in his intent. In fact, that he is very honest is one aspect that makes him a very tall leader. He has come with a suggestion. The wider question is: what will happen to law and order and the State Governments, which will use all foul means to misuse all their resources?
