Simultaneous polls will ‘destroy’ parliamentary democracy: AAP

NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party firmly believes that simultaneous elections will “destroy” India’s parliamentary democracy and federalism, its senior leader Ashish Khetan said today.

Khetan, who met the chairman of the Law Commission and its members, said AAP will submit a detailed paper to the commission outlining the party’s position on the matter.

The Law Commission had on June 14 written to all recognised political parties seeking their views on the issue.

“Met Law Commission Chairman & Members. Told them that AAP firmly believes that simultaneous elections will destroy our parliamentary democracy & federalism & it will mean mutilating the basic structure of our Constitution. We will soon submit a detailed paper before the Comm (sic),” he tweeted. (AGENCIES)
