Chief Election Commissioner O P Rawat on Thursday put all speculation to rest and ruled out the possibility of holding simultaneous elections to the state assemblies along the Lok Sabha polls without a "legal framework" in place for the same.

 "Koi chance nahi" (no chance at all), Rawat told a select media meet in Aurangabad when asked if it was still feasible to hold simultaneous Lok Sabha and state Assembly elections.

The Lok Sabha elections are due in April-May next year while Assembly polls to Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Rajasthan and Mizoram are scheduled to be held later this year.
