Simultaneous polls to Lok Sabha and State Assemblies decimates federal concept: Stalin


The principal opposition party DMK on Sunday described the proposal of the Law Commission to hold simultaneous polls to Parliament and State Assemblies a 'complete misadventure' that will 'decimate' the federal structure.

He made this observation in his letter to Justice B.S. Chauhan, the Chairman of the Law Commission. He also referred that an earlier Law Commission had already reported on the issue exhaustively and Parliament was sceptical whether this idea could ever be implemented.

He pointed out that the proposal of simultaneous elections went against the 'basic tenets' of the Constitution and 'established principles' of democratic functioning.
