Lucknow, Nov 18 (UNI) Fresh delimitation of the Parliamentary constituencies has created a flutter among the Lok Sabha aspirants with almost every political leader and party scrambling for change in candidates and constituencies.

Such is the predicament for even the sitting MPs that many of them are looking for new and 'safe' constituencies and some of them are even thinking in terms of changing the party.

Never before was there such a mad rush before the announcement of the polls among the politicians of the state, which has the distinction of sending 80 members to Lok Sabha. Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state in the country, has the largest share in Parliament and so has the biggest quota of worries this time.

It would have the most arduous task for the political parties to decide the future politics of the country but not before attending to the problems arising out of the delimitation.

The fresh redrawal of the constituencies has upset the caste and religion equations, which normally rule the roost at the hustings, forcing members to shift to other regions, states and even parties.

The scenario has forced many sitting MPs to change their constituencies- though reluctantly due to electoral compulsions.
