Patna, Dec 13 (UNI) Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said non- implementation of the delimitation decision indicated that the probability of mid-term Lok Sabha poll loomed large.

Mr Kumar told newspersons in his Assembly chamber here that the delimitation of Parliamentary and Assembly constitencies had been completed, but its non-implementation was sufficient enough to conclude that the possibility of mid-term poll was staring the face of the country.

He said the non-implementation of the decision had created confusion whether the elections would be held according to old arrangement or as per the new decision of the Delimitation Commission.

In order to purge off the confusion, he had asked the Centre to clarify the delay in executing the Commission's decision.

Mr Kumar, who appeared willing to contest from Barh Lok Sabha seat, said the structure of the constituency had been changed as per the new decision.

" After being elected to Parliament from the same constituency for five terms, his heart longs for the constiteuncy, where the people still support him, " claimed Mr Kumar.

Mr Kumar refuted the allegation of RJD MP from Barh Lok Sabha Vijay Krishan for engineering the change in the structure of Barh Lok Sabha seat, saying he was not even a member of the Delimitation Commission and was personally "hurt"" with the change.
