Simultaneous polls not viable, says CEC OP Rawat 15.8.2018 DNA: India
The Election Commission of India (ECI) expressed inability to implement proposal from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to hold simultaneous elections for Lok Sabha and all 32 state and union territory assemblies in the immediate future on Tuesday, citing legal framework as well as logistics. Even the ally JD(U) chief and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said the idea was theoretically correct, but not possible with the upcoming Lok Sabha polls scheduled in May 2019. On another proposal to club assembly polls in 11 states alongwith Lok Sabha elections, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) OP Rawat said it was only possible if those states dissolve their Houses voluntarily. The CEC said that currently the commission does not have enough machines to conduct such a massive exercise. "There are not enough VVPAT machines to conduct simultaneous polls in 2019." "If such a thing is to be attempted, more VVPAT machines will have to be ordered and a decision in this regard will have to be taken in a month or ...

Dissolve Lok Sabha and hold polls now, Congress dares PM Modi on simultaneous elections 14.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
A day after BJP president Amit Shah made a fresh push for simultaneous polls, the Congress today dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to dissolve the Lok Sabha so that its elections could be held with those due in four states later this year, while Shiv Sena mocked its NDA ally, saying it may hold Indian polls together with the US and Russia. On its part, the BJP asserted that it was in favour of holding simultaneous polls as per the law and with consensus, but rejected reports that it had plans to hold assembly polls in 11 states together with those of the Lok Sabha. Amid mixed political reactions, Chief Election Commissioner O P Rawat virtually ruled out holding simultaneous elections anytime soon saying it was not possible without a legal framework as any extension or curtailment of the term of assemblies will require a constitutional amendment. Bihar Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ally Nitish Kumar also spoke on similar lines, saying the 'one nation, one poll' proposal was not ...

Congress president Rahul Gandhi today termed the Rafale fighter jet deal as the country's "biggest ever" defence scam and alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a "partner" in the corruption. Addressing a party event here, he also said that Modi has not yet spoken a word on the rape incidents in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Rajasthan.
