New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party president, Amit Shah, on Sunday, has hinted at advancing the assembly polls in Maharashtra and Haryana to club them with the 2019 Lok Sabha election. The assembly polls in Haryana, Maharashtra and Jharkhand are scheduled in October-November.
Amit Shah has clarified that if respective state governments made such a suggestion, the centre would consider it. Shah said, “This is a call to be taken by the state governments. We have not considered any such move. However, if state governments make a suggestion, we shall consider it.”
According to sources, the BJP believes that clubbing of assembly and general elections will benefit the party to overcome the incumbency factor.
