Kevadia: Prime Minister Narendra Modi pitched for 'One Nation, One Election', saying it is the need of India as polls taking place every few months impact development works.
Addressing the concluding session of the 80th All India Presiding Officers Conference via video conference, Modi also paid homage to the victims of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and asserted that India is fighting terrorism now with new policy and new process.
Noting that it was the biggest terror strike on India, Modi said India can never forget the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
On November 26, 2008, ten Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists from Pakistan arrived through sea and opened fire, killing 166 people, including 18 security personnel, and injuring many during the 60-hour siege in Mumbai.
Pitching strongly for 'One Nation, One Election', Modi said it is not just a matter of debate, this is the need of India.
"Elections are held at different places every few months, the impact it has on development works is known to all. Therefore, it is a must to have deep study and deliberation on ''One Nation, One Election''," Modi said.
