EC to conduct simulations polls in 5 states on early next year
Giving a shock to the political parties like BJP, AAP, SP, BSP, and Congress, the election Commission of India is likely to conduct simultaneous elections in nearly five states- Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Manipur, and Goa- on early next year. Among the five region elections, the Uttar Pradesh assembly election is the most crucial one. It is learned that the elections will be conducted immediately after the parliament’s budget session, which is expected to begin on February one. So, the ruling party, BJP, may get a little advantage. The central government has already approached the Election Commission authorities seeking permission to present the budget on the proposed date, because once the code of conduct is declared the government authorities should not present the budget. It is said that the election commission may not block the budget presentation as it is meant to cover the budget requirements of the entire country. Moreover, it is not concentrated on the poll-bound states. Anyway, it may closely monitor the budget in order to make sure that the authorities do not utilize the budget to influence the voters by providing unusual offers to the poll-bound states. However, in all these poll-bound states, the anti-incumbency factor is at its peak. In Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh, the BJP is aiming a clear victory. In UP, the BJP acquired an astounding victory in the last Lok Sabha election by grabbing nearly seventy-one out of eighty seats. Meanwhile, the congress party, which is presently at a struggling phase, has to protect their vote banks. In all these states, expect UP and Uttarakhand, the AAP may demonstrate a powerful game.
