Sindhia demands amendment to Delimitation Act

Written by: Staff

Bangalore, May 9 (UNI) Senior JD(S) leader and Delimitation Commission member P G R Sindhia today opined that only bringing in an amendment to the existing Delimitation Act can set right the anomalies in reconstituting Assembly constituencies.

Addressing newspersons here, he said the existing guidelines, based on which the Commission functioned, would not render justice to rural Assembly seats in the State. Reconstituting Assembly constituencies on population basis and not on geographical area would result in losing dozens of seats, especially in North Kanara, Shimoga, Chickmagalur, Chamarajanagar, Hassan and Mysore districts.

Mr Sindhia said there was lot of discontent in reserving seats for Scheduled Tribes, which had to be carried out taking district as an unit instead of state.

He said that as a member of the Commission, headed by Mr Justice Kuldip Singh, he had toured the State and received memoranda expressing displeasure over the procedures being followed. He would convey his opinions to the Commissiion and try his best to set right the problem, he added.
