Uttar Pradesh calls for state split

Lawmakers in Uttar Pradesh have voted to support calls for it to be split into four smaller states. State Chief Minister Mayawati recently revived the debate on a split, which will foster development and accountability. Analysts see a political calculation stating the Congress party-led central government risks alienating voters if it rejected the proposal, but granting it gives Mayawati’s regional party three more states to potentially govern. The vote on Monday by the state assembly holds no legal weight, reports the officialwire.com
