One Nation, One Election was implemented after independence
One Nation, One Election i.e. one country, one election means that Lok Sabha and Assembly elections should be held simultaneously in the entire country. After independence, Lok Sabha and Assembly elections were held simultaneously in 1952, 1957, 1962 and 1967, but in 1968 and 1969, many Assemblies were dissolved prematurely. After that the Lok Sabha was also dissolved in 1970. Because of this, the tradition of one country, one election was broken.
