Parliament diary: President Kovind's address gives rise to speculations on early polls


.........No sooner had President Ram Nath Kovind’s speech gotten over MPs of the lower house were abuzz with anticipation of early polls. Kovind’s line on ‘simultaneous elections better for governance’, made them apprehensive about losing a few months of the five-year tenure. Well, going by the members’ political instincts, the Modi dispensation is preparing to spring another surprise on the opposition. The Lok Sabha elections, most were convinced, could be advanced by six months. It was even speculated that the PM has hinted about it to his NDA allies. The UP satraps were the first to claim, MSY and Mayawati have asked their respective parties to gear up. The Congress too was of the view, the EC may “pre-pone the polls”. A December schedule is being anticipated. But can it be simultaneous? Not quite. The BJP can club together the polls to states it’s ruling though—like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Haryana with the Lok Sabha. Odisha and Andhra Pradesh coincide with the general elections, in any case. The BJP feels, mini simultaneous polls can be fought on “Modi magic”, if not anything else, it could spike the Congress revival plan.
