The former president stated, “Numerous committees, including the parliamentary committee, Niti Aayog, and the Election Commission of India, have advocated for the revival of the ‘one nation, one election’ tradition in the country.”

“The government has formed a committee for this purpose, appointing me as its chairman. We are engaging with the public and will provide recommendations to the government on how to reintroduce this tradition,” he mentioned.
