Deputy Speaker and YSRCP Bapatla MLA Kona Raghupathi on Tuesday said a statement on new districts is expected on January 26. He stated that his government had earlier decided to declare every parliamentary constituency as a district. “Because of complications in creation of Araku district, the number of districts rose to 26,” he mentioned. Raghupathi said that the AP government is creating the new districts based on the scientific guidelines issued by the NITI Aayog. “The Legislative Assembly will pass the bill in the budget session regarding the creation of new districts,” he added.
