With a plan to increase the number of Lok Sabha members to one thousand or more before 2024 Central government Is.
BJP MPs confirm this. The new Lok Sabha, currently under construction in Delhi, is planned to seat 1000 MPs. My friends in the BJP confirm this.
But Lok Sabha MPs Serious public debate is needed before raising the number.
I don’t know why they are doing this. But a two-thirds majority is required to exercise the many powers conferred by the Constitution, including the dissolution of state legislatures. Will the plan to increase the number in such an environment have an impact?
If the number of Lok Sabha MPs is increased to 1000, women will be given one-third of the quota.
