The idea of ‘one nation, one election’ proposed by PM Modi is actually a very good plan as it would free the country of the constant election fervour and bring stability, to some extent, between the relationships of centre and states and save a ton of expenditure. Also, this will reduce the load on the security personnel who need to otherwise keep travelling throughout the year in states ready for elections. How to bring about this system is, however, a difficult step and will need conscious of all the states and might takes years to come to plan and implement, but it is something that should be done eventually.
