    How long will the election process go one three months or six months if the EC is able to conduct the election in 5 to 7 days then everything will be okay and it should not depend on state government or other central government employees to conduct elections, because they are not responsible for the malpractices during the election times, Is it possible to conduct elections of 572 MP seats in a week? then we can talk about one nation one election.

    People should also look at the background of this lawyer and his political leanings. He is not bipartisan and that is I am damn sure about.

    The concept of simultaneous elections may be gaining traction: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/naveen-patnaik-backs-one-nation-one-election-idea/articleshow/69861333.cms

    Give one year to nation then dissolve the parliament & all state assemblies conduct the elections not under governor rule but under state high courts

    As this idea is from Modi, it is not acceptable for these so-called Intellectuals. That stupid idea of₹72000/- by Raga is very innovative & practical for them.

    There are many other issues to work on but why only elections are getting hyped.

    Though i too am of the opinion that single election is not feasible at present, i am not ready to buy the argument from this biased advocate. Brut please get a genuine opinion from an impartial advocate. Not this well known anti Modi advocate.

    The supreme Court lawyer is justified in his reservation regarding the one nation one election.... it will be like tampering with the Constitution which is the base of governce for our country.

    Who is Sanjay Hegde? A Congress stooge who defends the corrupt at courts that's what he is and it is natural for him to oppose a good idea

    Wow what a brilliant strategy to fool the nation by fideling with the EVM and election results for both elections in one go.

    Once upon a time there was a painter who had just completed his course under disciple hood of a great painter. This young artist decided to assess his skills. He decided to give his best strokes on the canvass. He took 3 days and painted beautiful scenery. He wanted people's opinion about his caliber and painting skills. He put his creation at a busy street-crossing. And just down below a board which read-"Gentlemen, I have painted this piece. Since I'm new to this profession I might have committed some mistakes in my strokes etc. Please put a cross wherever you see a mistake." While he came back in the evening to collect his painting he was completely shattered to see that whole canvass was filled with Xs (crosses) and some people had even written their comments on the painting. Disheartened and broken completely he ran to his master's place and burst into tears. Sobbing and crying he told his master about what happened and showed the pathetic state of his creation which was filled with crosses and correction remarks. This young artist was breathing heavily and master heard him saying "I'm useless and if this is what I have learnt to paint I'm not worth becoming a painter. People have rejected me completely. I feel like dying" Master smiled and suggested "My Son, I will prove that you are a great artist and have learnt a flawless painting." Young disciple couldn't believe it and said "I have lost faith in me and I don't think I am good enough. Don't make false hopes.. "Do as I say without questioning it. It WILL work." Master interrupted him. Young artist reluctantly agreed and two days later early morning he presented a replica of his earlier painting to his master. Master took that gracefully and smiled. "Come with me." master said. They reached the same street-square early morning and displayed the same painting exactly at the same place. Now master took out another board which read -"Gentlemen, I have painted this piece. Since I'm new to this profession I might have committed some mistakes in my strokes etc. I have put a box with colors and brushes just below. Please do a favor. If you see a mistake, kindly pick up the brush and correct it." Master and disciple walked back home. They both visited the place same evening. Young painter was surprised to see that actually there was not a single correction done so far. Next day again they visited and found painting remained untouched. They say the painting was kept there for a month for no correction came in! It is easier to criticize, but difficult to improve. If you want to help people improve their behavior it is worth investing your effort in learning how to help people change their behaviors, attitudes and skills. Also, always remember not to get carried away or judge yourself by someone else’s criticism and feel depressed. Take criticism in your stride; consider that which are genuine and implement those which you think is the best to improve you as a person!! -- "To teach u need a book but to preach...!! u be a book" "if you want to walk fast walkalone. if you want to walk far walk together" For modi haters
