What if tomorrow, before Lok Sabha polls, they say that they want to bring the Presidential system instead of the Parliamentary system & make changes to Constitution, so postpone polls. Will polls be postponed? Will state polls be postponed if they say they want to unify 2 states? : Delhi CM
The main motive wasn't the unification of all 3 MCDs. Had they wanted, they would've done it in the last 7 yrs. The motive was to postpone polls…I appeal to the PM with folded hands that if we force EC to cancel elections, it weakens it & the country. We have to protect the nation.
Date for MCD polls was to be announced at 5pm on March 9 but the same day an hour ago, the Centre wrote to state EC to combine all 3 civic bodies into one, & that polls should be delayed. The election commission agreed to do so…Not okay if polls are cancelled, weakens EC role.
