Dhumal asks Centre to hold simultaneous polls to all bodies


Hamirpur (HP), March 26: Former Himachal Chief Minister and senior BJP leader, Prem Kumar Dhumal on Sunday, March 27 sked the Centre to explore the possibility of holding simultaneous elections to all constitutional bodies, including Panchayati Raj Institutions, state Assembly and Lok Sabha.

"If elections to all elected bodies could be held in one go, it would save huge amount of money wasted in holding the polls time and again," he said while addressing the newly elected Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRI) members from BJP.


Dhumal said that despite the hurdles created by ruling Congress, BJP was able to muster majority in all the PRIs and credited the party leaders and people of the district for the success.

The BJP leader said the Virbhadra Singh-led government was staring at midterm assembly polls, given the number of graft charges levelled against the Chief Minister. He added the central government was giving adequate funds to the state's development and allied activities but sadly the funds were being misused by the ruling Congress.
