TRS MPs To Propose Delimitation Of Constituencies Bill In Parliament Session

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Members of Parliament (MP) are asked to push the Delimitation of Constituencies Bill in the Parliament.

The K. Chandrashekar Rao led Telangana Government is demanding an increase in the number of Assembly constituencies in the State.

The decision to pressurise and ask to pass the bill was said to be in the wake of strong speculations on the conduct of one nation one election towards the end of 2022.

The Telangana Chief Minister KCR is asking for 153 constituencies from current 119 Assembly constituencies.

The delimitation of the constituencies was one of the important promises made in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act and has been pending for the last six years. After the 2014 bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh in two Telugu states, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the ruling TRS Government is demanding to increase the number of constituencies.

The pressure of asking the same increased after the Central Government decided to work upon one nation, one election agenda in 2022.

According to the TRS leaders, the TRS MPs have been told to push hard for taking up the Bill pertaining to delimitation of constituencies.

As per the Act, the delimitation would be taken up in both the Telugu States, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

There is a proposal to increase two Assembly constituencies in each of the 17 Lok Sabha segments that is 34 seats, taking the tally to 153 seats from the existing 119.

The public representatives from Andhra Pradesh too had requested the Centre on several occasions. A senior TRS leader said that the party would like to push for the Bill to be passed during this current session of Parliament.

A TRS leader said, the Centre is likely to pass 38 Bills in the present session and the TRS would try to see that this Bill was part of those 38 Bills.

In addition, according to the sources, a delegation of the TRS MPs would meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah and the Law Minister of India and urge them to introduce the Bill.
