"One nation one poll" - Critically Analyze
One Nation One Poll (ONOP) - Let us critically analyze it; focusing mostly on the cons of it from the UPSC perspective. Discuss benefits, advantages, implementation etc.Posted in: #Indian Political
ONOP should have been accepted long back. There are several issues with existing system where people of India have to face the elections every few days.
Expenditure - Each election requires massive expenditure from the governing bodies. First, the election officers and executives have to be assigned; which mostly come from schools and colleges. Most of the times, this means that there's actual loss of work.
Moral Code of Conduct and Delays in Government Decisions: Because there is a MCC at least for a month before the actual elections, the government delays decision making.
Security: Security is deployed at every polling booth; which results into waste of Human Resources who'd otherwise be deployed for other priority services.
Political parties have to be always figuring out the next strategy: There is no stability and the political parties are always on the toes to strategize their moves.
I think One Nation one Poll can address all these issues effectively. Political will and consensus is the only thing I think is preventing the implementation of ONOP.
