Repeated polls not good for country: Union minister Rajnath Singh

Uttar Pradesh, May 30, 2024.

Union minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said frequent elections are not good for the country and efforts will be made to install the “one nation, one election” system in the next five years.

Singh said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) believe that the Lok Sabha and Assembly polls should be held simultaneously across the country.

“In five years, we will try our best to make provisions for one nation, one election,” the defence minister said, addressing a rally in support of Vijay Kumar Dubey, the BJP’s Lok Sabha poll candidate from Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh.
