Vidarbha demand intensifies, protest on Aug 5 in Delhi

August 4, 2013

Objectifying separate statehood demands for Vidarbha on Sunday, some outfits said they will organise a dharna at Jantar Mantar here on August 5 in support of their demand. Vidarbha Joint Action Committee and Federation for New States said the Centre must carve out a separate state for the backward region as it had promised to consider its demand whenever it took a decision on other states.
