Pune : Calling frequent elections in the country a matter of concern, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu pitched for "simultaneous and broad" elections in the country.

"Since elections are around the corner and model code of conduct is being enforced and some of the friends (MP and ministers) could not come to the function...the frequent elections in the country is a matter of concern," Naidu said.

Because of elections, there will be a code of conduct for almost one and a half months and everyone has to follow a three-line formula - election, selection, and correction, he said.

"That is why it is in the interest of the country (that) there should be a broad and simultaneous election across the country within 15 days' period so that there is no deviation, dilution, and diversion of the public work," he said.

Lauding Deglurkar, Naidu said archaeological sites are the bridges that connect the present with our past.

"Archaeology is a fascinating subject that enhances our understanding of history through hard evidence."
