Sanjeev, 

No, reserved constituencies are not rotated randomly. Reserved
constituencies are reserved constituencies forever. Initially I used to
think that just like the original theory of setting up caste based job
etc. reservations for initial 10 years (which ended up becoming
perpetual caste politics), this also must have been setup for a certain
period of time. But when, in the period of VP Singh regime, in 1989,
this caste based reservation was discussed in microscopic details, at
that time it was made clear that reserved constituencies are to remain
reserved constituencies forever, unless a fundamental change is made to
the constitution.
