About 'One-Nation, One-Election'
Talking about ‘one nation, one election,’ Tomar said, former president of India, Ramnath Kovind has been made the head of this committee. We’ll welcome whatever decision he takes. Definitely, if simultaneous elections were held in the country, it will save crores of money which gets wasted in today’s elections. Ultimately, this would be in the interest of the country.
About the Scindia-supporters who left BJP, the minister said, “People can have personal reasons, therefore, we can’t say anything about it.”
“Also, it said that ‘Jab naach na aaye aangan tedha.’ In today's scenario, the public will only support those who serve them the best,” he concluded.
