It is an open knowledge to everyone on how the new state of Telangana was formed and you may call it political interest or lack of scientific evaluation, the price is being paid by the Telugu people in both states. Anyhow, before that dust can settle, talk about another new separate state is coming up.
Reports are trickling in about the possible formation of a Vidarbha state from Maharashtra. This is likely to happen if BJP comes to power. Apparently, the Saffron brigade has been bent upon creating the new state from a long time and their opponent, the NCP has been insisting on a unified Maharashtra.
The other challenge for BJP if they intend to do this would be the opposition from their long standing but now broken ally Shiv Sena. At the moment, if a BJP candidate from Vidarbha becomes a CM, it could be tough for that person to explain policies as it would be looked from Vidarbha as a separate state perspective. Now, whether creating a new state is beneficial for the Marathas or not remains to be seen.
