Active GD- Is the ‘One Nation, One Election’ proposal acceptable or not acceptable?The thumping victory of the BJP in the recently concluded general election and the return of Shri Modi to power have seen the resurrection of the debate over the 'One Nation, One Election' proposal by the ruling front. Many debates on this proposal are doing the rounds in various formats and as there are people who are supporting the move, there are those who are opposing the same too.
Let us also join the nation in discussing this proposal. Apart from the practical aspect, the legal, political, social and economic angles also have to be considered while putting up your arguments for or against the topic.
A word of caution to the participating members - Please do not make this GD a place to support your politically inclined ideas or thoughts. Let us have a general discussion covering all the relevant and connected points- for or against.
This thread by Varghese and this one by Sun has prompted us to start a debate on this topic. We acknowledge both the authors for the idea.
General guidelines for adherence – (Please read and follow them strictly)
* Politics cannot be avoided in this discussion but do avoid getting too political. Any idea or criticism is welcome as long as it does not go overboard.
*Please do not post responses that are not relevant to the GD in this thread.
*Read and understand the topic properly before coming up with arguments.
*Please stick to the topic. Do not deviate from the main subject. It is quite natural to draw connections or make references but one must make it a point to get back to the topic of discussion. Any deviation from the main topic that is likely to affect the flow of a discussion is not advisable. Take a stand and fight for it and avoid trying to maintain a balance.
*Do try to add on or elaborate on points already submitted instead of harping on the same point in different words time and again. It would be better if you distribute your arguments between the responses you intend to post instead of covering up all of them in one go. Please give detailed responses with valid points to support your argument.
*Do not get personal. Each participant in a debate is free to choose his stand and though one can and has to challenge and try to disprove another's point, it should be limited to the views only and not on a personal level. Let us not discard dignity and decency for the sake of cementing a view.
*All the posting guidelines as per the policy of ISC is applicable in this GD too. Any violation thereof will not be acceptable.
Let us have a healthy, active and fruitful discussion. The GD will close on the 26th of June 2019.
Best participants will be selected depending on the number of participants and will be awarded suitably. Other participants will also be considered for cash rewards if found eligible.
So why wait? Think properly and logically and start penning down your points and arguments. The debate is on!
Note: The editor who is moderating the GD will have the final say (in consultation with the team) in matters of dispute (during discussion) and a point or guidance put forth as a response by the moderator need not be responded to by the participating members.
