Dilution of People's Representation in India

India has grown from 350 millions to 1.21 billions but we still have same number of elected Member of Parliamnet. In a democracy a leader must work & know the peole s/he represents. Is it possible for a MP to meet even 10 percent of people in the constituency during 5 years in office? An MP is no longer representative of the constituency in rational practical manner.

Secondly the ratio of elected representatives to the electorate has been completely altered. Therefore for the sake of a representative democracy we need to increase the number of seats in parliament and enforce the ratio that existed in the year 1947.
