    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.

    State govt and central govt have different jobs. People want cruel leader at centre to crush jehadis. Also want soft leader at state to give unfair benefits to people.

    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.

    Right. It is moot point to ponder about before its implementation!

    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.
