Bundelkhand Ekikaran Samiti, Jhansi
About Bundelkhand Ekikaran Samiti:
U.P. Bundelkhand has 5 MPs and 20 MLAs in 402 seats (Lucknow UP Assembly).
M.P. Bundelkhand has 8 MPs and 35 MLAs (Bhopal MP Assembly) of 232. This is a
ineffective ground of BJP — Congress — BSP and Samajwadi Party and independents.
As such there is no pressure group either in U.P. and M.P. govts and no common
front to present our case in parliament.
The Bundelkhand Ekikaran Samiti through its work with masses has established a
very strong base in more than half of Bundelkhand region with over 50000 members
who have paid Rs. 10 to 100 per person and is progressing fast. We hope to cover
the whole area very soon and influence all the political parties to help create
a separate state of Bundelkhand or face the consequences. Happily politicians
are coming around to this idea too.
