So it begins... Mayawati demands UP be split into four states
July 31, 2013  12:17
BSP chief Mayawati holds a quickie press conference primarily welcoming the decision on the creation of the Telangana state. "The BSP always advocates the splitting of states and governance units. I reiterate my proposal to split UP into four different states -- Purvanchal, Bundelkhand, Awadh Pradesh and Paschim Pradesh. But for that that to happen Mulayam Singh Yadav should be asked to leave UP," she said.

Opponents to the creation of Telangana have stated that giving in will ensure the demands for other states to be split up as well.
