The Minister said that out of the sanctioned 16 clusters, 6 are functioning. They include Kalamkari cluster in Chittoor, agro-industry, horticulture and floriculture and process cluster in East Godavari, Mangalagiri gold jewelery cluster, Visakhapatnam coffee cluster, Vizianagaram coir cluster and Vizianagaram gold jewelery cluster.
Vijaya Sai Reddy raised the issue of delimitation of constituencies saying that it should not be based only on population but also on other factors like land, forest, biosphere, economic disparity, population control and other related issues.
