He said that he is in line with the Prime minister’s campaign for simultaneous elections. Adityanath is also unwilling to waste public funds on elections every five years.

Yogi Adityanath revealed that the Uttar Pradesh government has already constituted a team under the health minister Siddarth Nath Singh in this regard. He also plans to create a single voter’s list which is to be linked to the Aadhar card.
