Staff Reporter

PONDICHERRY: The Pondicherry AIADMK committee today thanked the Delimitation Commission of India for its application of statutorily recognised yardsticks in redrawing the territorial limits of each of the 30 Assembly constituencies in the Union Territory.

A resolution adopted at a meeting of office-bearers of the State Committee and delegates of various wings here today said that the commission went into aspects related to population of each constituency and adopted an equitable approach in fixing the size of the population for each of the constituencies and its limits. The demarcation of reserved constituencies as per the provisions of the relevant statue was also a laudable approach, the resolution said.

The secretary of the committee and MLA A Anbalgan chaired the meeting. Another resolution adopted at the meeting condemned "the denial of opportunities to party legislators in the Assembly to raise people's issues through call attention motions, half an hour discussions and other modes. Mr. Anbalagan distributed copies of the resolutions to mediapersons.
