Extending the previous post’s rationale, Avataram performed a basic population to seat bench-marking based on 1971, 2001 and 2011 Census data. You can see the results here: Delimitation 2011. It’s quite disastrous if you are a citizen of Central/North/Western India.
Basically, the states that are losing representation in relative terms happen to be: Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharasthra, Haryana, Gujarat and Jharkhand. In that order. These are states that the BJP is either doing well in or has a reasonable chance of doing well or will absolutely have to do well in order to get anywhere close to majority in Lok Sabha. While those that are gaining the most in relative terms happen to be: Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. In that order. Where political presence is restricted to the INC and regional parties (Left included). The gain of 7 seats for Tamil Nadu is staggering and add to this the state’s past 20 year history of delivering decisive mandates with overwhelming majority; the skew is almost unbelievable.
A study on all discretionary projects/fund allocations and general pork of the past 20 years and Tamil Nadu’s relative share of it will be interesting.
