THE CONGRESS on Monday suggested that there was no point discussing delimitation of parliamentary constituencies till the process for Assembly seats was completed.
The committee, which met in Bhopal had received the model map of parliamentary constituencies as they were likely to be following delimitation. But the members of the committee felt that without delimitation of Assembly constituencies, it was pointless to give suggestions on delimitation of parliamentary segments.
Following delimitation of Assembly constituencies, several things including population of scheduled castes and scheduled tribes would change and any discussion would have no meaning, the committee felt.
It therefore urged the Delimitation Commission to send proposals of delimitation of Assembly constituencies and invite objections if any and take up parliamentary constituencies only after that.
The meeting was attended by convenor of the committee, Radhakrishna Garg and members Deepchand Yadav, Ajay Chaure and Vineet Godha.
