BJP President bats for simultaneous polls

Aug 14, 2018 12:42 IST

BJP chief Amit Shah has written to the Law Commission arguing for holding simultaneous polls in the country. Dismissing claims that holding elections together would give national parties an edge over regional parties, Shah countered the Congress' concerns on federalism as being baseless. One election would, the BJP President argued, strengthen the federal structure and keep expenditure in check as well.
