The issue is not a new issue, This issues has been there since long. It is picking up again so that the PM can show the country the concern of the govt. on election spendings. The ruling party has the most dubious record of funding in the last elections.
There is no guarantee of continuity of these govts so formed for the complete term. We have seen how the govt. squeezed the common man for last three ans half years by levying exorbitant taxes. Now all of a sudden they are giving all concessions owing to approaching assembly elections in some of the states. If there would have been no such elections the govt. would have continue the same way.
This is also a gimmick like the Acche Din and Black money to divert the attention of the common man from the core issues of their betterment.
If both the elections are held simultaneously, the Government exchequer would be able to save crores and crores of rupees. Moreover, the projects/schemes will not be hampered due to elections of different bodies at different times (new projects can't start once election notification comes) . Even the Election Commission has expressed readiness to conduct both elections (Lok Sabha and Assembly) simultaneously.
We must not dismiss everything as gimmick. If this tendency of dismissing everything as gimmick continues, then ultimately people will also dismiss those 'gimmick-mongers'.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
