Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge accused the Modi government of attempting to turn India into a dictatorship through its push for ‘One Nation One Election’. In a tweet, Kharge wrote, “Modi Govt wants Democratic India to slowly turn it into a Dictatorship.” He claimed that the government’s proposal is a subterfuge for dismantling the federal structure of India.
Kharge highlighted the significant changes required in the Constitution of India and the Representation of the People Act, 1951, to implement the ‘One Nation One Election’ policy. He stated, “There will be at least five Amendments required in the Constitution of India, and a massive change in the Representation of the People Act, 1951. The Constitutional Amendments shall be required to truncate the terms of the elected Lok Sabha and the Legislative Assemblies, as also at the level of local bodies, so that they can be synchronized.”
The Congress leader raised questions about the government’s approach, stating that similar ideas have been examined and rejected by three previous committees. He also expressed concerns about whether the current committee has a pre-decided outcome in mind. Kharge wondered if such a significant exercise should be undertaken without consulting political parties at the national and state levels.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi, another prominent Congress leader, criticized the government’s ‘One Nation One Election Push’. He tweeted, “INDIA, that is Bharat, is a Union of States. The idea of ‘one nation, one election’ is an attack on the 🇮🇳 Union and all its States.”
In response to the criticism, the law ministry formed a committee to examine the ‘One Nation One Election’ proposal. The committee includes Home Minister Amit Shah, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, former chairman of 15th Finance Commission NK Singh, and former Lok Sabha general secretary Subash Kashyap, among others. Notably, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has been excluded from the committee.
In conclusion, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge accused the Modi government of trying to establish a dictatorship through the ‘One Nation One Election’ push. He raised concerns about the impact on India’s federal structure and the lack of consultation with political parties. Rahul Gandhi also criticized the proposal, calling it an attack on the Union of States. The law ministry has formed a committee to examine the policy, but Kharge has been excluded from it.
