Sanjay K Chadha

There has been constant demand from the intellectuals and statesmen to go for a system wherein, governments in states and centre should be allowed to function with decisiveness. The article seeks to analyse the prospects and challenges of One Nation One Election with which our constitutional system is grappling. The Mandate of the constituent Assembly was that the Parliamentary and assembly elections should be held together to save time and money.
