This week we discuss the idea of simultaneous elections to the Lok Sabha and state assemblies. Endorsed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it makes financial and practical sense but can it work in a country as diverse as India, with so many regional parties? Does the government have to be in permanent campaign mode? Can there be a constitutional and political solution? Tarun Vijay of the BJP; Manish Tewari from the Congress; Sukhendu Sekhar Roy from Trinamool Congress; Navin Chawla, former Chief Election Commissioner; and Naina Lal Kidwai, Former Chairperson, HSBC India, join us for a debate.
