Bangla Hunt Desk: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has repeatedly called for simultaneous elections in the country. This time he took steps in this direction and in the meeting held at his office, he practiced to prepare the general voter list. This list will be used in all local elections including Lok Sabha, Vidhan Sabha. The government is working on ways to save money by holding general voter lists and holding elections together. The meeting, held at the Prime Minister's Office, focused on changing the legal rules associated with it.

A meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's chief secretary PK Mishra on August 13 discussed two options. The first is to amend Article 243K and 243ZA of the Constitution to make it mandatory to use a voter list for all elections in the country. And second, the state government will be sent to change their laws. So that they use a voter list prepared by the Election Commission for panchayat elections and municipal elections. Apart from Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gomba, the meeting was attended by Legislative Secretary G Narayan Raju, Panchayat Raza Secretary Sunil Kumar and three representatives of the Election Commission.

Articles 243K and 243ZA of the Constitution apply to local municipal and panchayat votes in the states. This constitutional law gives states the right to compile voter lists and hold elections. On the other hand, Article 324 (1) of the Constitution gives the Central Election Commission the power to control the preparation of voter lists in all elections to Parliament and the Legislative Assembly. This means that the state government is independent for local elections and states do not have to seek the permission of the Central Election Commission for local elections.

At the meeting, Panchayat Raza Secretary Sunil Kumar agreed to persuade the states. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's chief secretary PK Mishra has asked the cabinet secretary to talk to the states and advise them on the next steps within a month.
