THE people of Vidarbha are united on one issue—if Uttarakhand can get statehood, why can’t they? The main reason for the demand for statehood is the economic and developmental neglect by Maharashtra which has left the region backward. In this, it shares a common platform with Uttarakhand. Vidarbha is spread over 97,404 sq km, Uttarakhand over 51,125 sq km; Vidarbha’s population is 1.74 crore, Uttarakhand’s is 65 lakh; Vidarbha has 66 assembly seats and 11 Lok Sabha constituencies, Uttarakhand 19 assembly and four Lok Sabha seats.
