Virugambakkam to be new Assembly constituency
By Our Staff Reporter
Like elsewhere, changes in the extent of the State Assembly constituencies which fall under Chennai city have been made. These changes have affected the neighbourhood too.
This is subsequent to the delimitation exercises to bring about uniformity in the size of population in each Assembly segment.
Virugambakkam, the biggest division in Chennai Corporation is now a new Assembly constituency in Tamil Nadu.
This constituency will include areas under Divisions 65 (Virugambakkam), 128 (K K Nagar and Nesapakkam), 129 (Saligramam), 130 (K K Nagar, MGR Nagar, Rani Anna Nagar), 131 (Jafferkhanpet, MGR Nagar).
Previously, most of these areas fell under Villiwakkam constituency, a huge segment.
Virugambakkam Assembly constituency will now fall under Chennai South parliamentary constituency.
Vadapalani and Ashok Nagar areas will continue to be under T Nagar Assembly constituency (Chennai south, parliamentary constituency). There is no change in these divisions.
Valasarawakkam which was under Villiwakkam Assembly constituency hitherto, will now fall under Maduravoyal Assembly and Sriperumbudur parliamentary constituency.
