Lucknow: With the UPA giving its nod for the creation of a separate Telangana state, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati renewed her demand for splitting the state into four parts, besides creation of Gorkhaland and Vidarbha.

"BSP has always been in favour of smaller states for which it had sent a proposal duly passed by the state Assembly on November 23, 2011, when it was leading the government, for splitting Uttar Pradesh into four states in order to ensure better governance and administration," the BSP supremo told reporters.

"It is unfortunate that the central government kept it pending since then, but with Telangana becoming a reality, BSP demands that on the principle of one language-one state, the Centre, besides reorganising larger states, should also complete the process of division of Uttar Pradesh into four states, besides (formation of) Gorkhaland and Vidarbha," she said.

There are demands to carve out separate Gorkhaland from West Bengal and Vidarbha out of Maharashtra.

She asked the union ministers from UP, who were favouring division of the state, to exert pressure on the central government for the process instead of making tall claims. Mayawati said when her party was in power, she had created new divisions, zones, districts and tehsils so that better administration could be provided to the people of the state, which is the most populous state in the country.

She said she had proposed splitting Uttar Pradesh into Purvanchal, Bundelkhand, Awadh Pradesh and Pashchimanchal.
