Former President Kovind convenes the 'One Nation One Election' Committee

'One Nation One Election' committee's first meeting is scheduled to start this Wednesday. The distinguished former president of India, Ram Nath Kovind, will preside over the committee, which will meet at his residence in Delhi. In the ongoing debate about whether it would be feasible to resume the practice of conducting elections for all levels of government simultaneously, a system that was in existence until 1967, the creation of this group is an important step.

When J P Nadda, the leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), met with former president Ram Nath Kovind, the creation of this committee gained pace. The former President was given the important task of heading the committee during this meeting, which aims to carefully examine the viability of implementing the "one nation, one election" concept.

Amit Shah, the home minister, and Arjun Ram Meghwal, the law minister, are scheduled to meet with the committee's chairman, Ram Nath Kovind, on Wednesday afternoon. This gathering serves as a reminder of the serious consideration and dedication being given to the idea of simultaneous elections.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been a vocal supporter of the idea of "one nation, one election" ever since he took office in 2014. He has insisted time and time again that the repeated political cycles, including local elections, place a heavy financial burden on the country and impede the advancement of development initiatives while elections are taking place. Ram Nath Kovind expressed support for this notion while serving as President from 2017 onward, joining the Prime Minister's mission.
