By-elections caused due to sitting MLAs and Rajya Sabha members elected to Lok Sabha: Resignation from earlier seat be made compulsory before contesting for new seat Featured

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,26/05/19:It refers to unnecessary and costly by-elections caused because of 49 sitting MLAs and 4 Rajya Sabha members having been elected for new Lok Sabha. By-elections also become necessary in case a candidate wins from two constituencies of both for Lok Sabha and state-assembly. Such by-elections are criminal waste of public-money because of faulty poll-laws not refined even after seven decades. 

At least basic poll-reforms should be immediately done whereby any sitting MP or MLA must resign from earlier seat within say three days of election-notification so that by-election for the vacated seat may be simultaneously held with general elections. Since a person cannot represent two constituencies at a time or can be member of both Parliament and state-legislature simultaneously, a person must not be allowed to contest from more than one constituency or for both Lok Sabha and state-assembly. Also a sitting MP on being appointed minister in state-assembly (and vice-versa) must automatically lose membership of the earlier House.
