Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar
on Tuesday said MLCs should represent all districts falling in
their constituencies during official meetings on development
plans at the district level.

An MLC may be voter of one district, but elected from
another district and under the circumstances such an MLC has a
right to represent both districts at the district-level
meetings on development plans, Kumar said while replying to a
bunch of call attention motions by several MLCs in the
legislative council.

The MLCs have no area-based constituenties and their
voters could be residing in more than one district, he said,
adding that they have a right to represent all district in
their constituencies and the officials should according invite
the MLCs at the official meetings.

This precedent should be implemented for the nominated
MLCs too, he said adding that he has issued a guideline in
this regard.

About limits of development funds at the MLCs`
disposal in the districts falling in their constituencies,
Kumar said the detail was being worked out by various
departments.
