India Will Have One More State.

In India on December 10, 2009 at 8:15 am

India has 28 states and 7 federally administered union territories. “A little before midnight on December 9, the Centre conceded to demands for a separate state of Telangana. It evoked both celebration and dissent. And Hyderabad mirrored these in equal measure.” (The Hindu slideshow here) One historical perspective is here.

Will this be an opportunity to bring development faster to its people, or has this created another tit for corrupt bureaucrats and politicians to suck at? We’ll see.
