Mayawati passes resolution to divide Uttar Pradesh into 4 states

Just ahead of the upcoming 2012 Uttar Pradesh elections, Mayawati has passed a resolution to divide Uttar Pradesh into 4 smaller states of Purvanchal, Paschim Pradesh, Bundelkhand and Awadh Pradesh.

Owing to the upcoming state polls, Mayawati was under pressure from Congress and BJP’s onslaught on the widespread corruption on land allotment deals, Mayawati’s huge spending’s on creating parks showcasing dalit leaders and herself and also because of the involvement of its top ministers in cases of rape and corruption. Rahul Gandhi has been on his UP election campaign since second week of Nov and Mulayam Singh’s Samajwadi party has been building pressure against BSP as well.

Uttar Pradesh to be divided into 4 states

In such a scenario, BSP found itself cornered. The best way out was to divert attention and let people completely forget about whatever happened in the state in past few years. By passing the resolution to divide Uttar Pradesh into 4 states, Mayawati has now left the ball in Central Govt’s court. She will now go to polls with the plank that she tried to do a better administration system for this large state, but Central Govt has delayed this.

In political aspect, Mayawati is the only one who stands to gain from this. Off the four divisions of Purvanchal, Paschim Pradesh, Bundelkhand and Awadh Pradesh, Mayawati’s BSP is very strong in two divisions. Central or Awadh Pradesh is Samajwadi Party’s main area while BJP stands to gain in the last segment. So, in the end, BSP may end up ruling two Indian states, instead of just one. Congress may have no gain or loss from the move as it’s lost its base in UP long time back and despite Rahul Gandhi’s campaign, it doesn’t look like their chances are going to improve in 2012.
