The state government is planning to bifurcate some of the 13 districts once the Centre gives green signal to delimitation of assembly constituencies.
With the delimitation of assembly constituencies in the state virtually finalised with the report submitted by former advocate general Mukul Rohatgi to the Centre last month, the AP government is now focusing on bifurcation of districts.
However, the bifurcation is unlikely to be done on a grand scale like the way Telangana did with the creation of 21 new districts.
The number of assembly constituencies post delimitation would be a deciding factor for bifurcation. AP would go for two to three new districts by splitting up a big district like East Godavari for administrative convenience .
CM told his party leaders that the delimitation of the assembly constituencies is likely to be completed within six months and the seats would go up to 225 from 175.
