`Don't reduce number of Karaikal Assembly segments'

KARAIKAL, MARCH 24 . Political parties and Karaikal residents have urged the Delimitation Commission not to reduce the number of Assembly segments in the Karaikal region. Instead, they wanted the commission to increase the number.

The Delimitation Commission, led by B.B.Tandon, Election Commissioner of India, and Member of Delimitation Commission, held its sitting here recently, and received representations on reducing the Assembly segments from six to five, based on the 2001 census.

The region now comprises the Karaikal, Karaikal South, Niravi and T.R.Pattinam, Tirunallar, Nedungadu and Kottucherry segments.
