Pawar’s decision has come amid several major political leaders like Mamata Banerjee, Arvind Kejriwal MK Stalin have announced that they won’t be attending the meeting where the topic of ‘One Nation One Election’ is to be discussed.

Along with Mamata Banerjee, Arvind Kejriwal, MK Stalin, TDP president Chandrababu Naidu, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao will also be not attending the meet. Banerjee in a letter to Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi, Banerjee has said the matter of “one country, one election” required consultations with experts. “A proper response on such a sensitive and serious subject like “one country, one election” in such a short time would not do justice to the subject. The matter requires consultations with constitutional experts, election experts and above all, the party members.

“Instead of doing the matter hurriedly, I would request you to kindly circulate a white paper on the subject to all political parties, inviting their views by providing adequate time. If you only do so, we will be able to give concrete suggestions on this important subject,” she wrote in the letter.

PM Modi has invited the heads of all the political parties that have at least one member either in the Lok Sabha or in the Rajya Sabha for a meeting on June 19 to discuss several issues, including the “one nation, one election” idea, celebration of 75 years of Independence in 2022 and the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi this year.
