Telangana the 29th state of India

"On July 30, 2013, the Congress Party, which leads the governing coalition of the central government, endorsed the creation of Telangana as the 29th state of India by dividing Andhra Pradesh. The decision culminated a 57-year-old troubled relationship between the two Telugu-speaking regions, which had been combined to form Andhra Pradesh."


Great. Please inform us when it actually does become a state. CMD (talk) 15:46, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
You know - I think we may not have to worry too much, and someone, somewhere, probably will let us know when that happens, in case we forget - if not before it happens - again... It's just a feeling I have... Face-smile.svg Begoontalk 16:04, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 4 October 2013[edit]

Vinaychammy (talk) 14:37, 4 October 2013 (UTC) The Indian map shown in this page is incorrect! A large portion of Jammu and Kashmir which is originally occupied by Pakistan is actually labeled as 'Pakistan territory claimed by India' and the entire State of Arunachal Pradesh is shown as as 'Chinese territory claimed by India' which is totally incorrect! Please correct it!

Not done: This map is used across articles in wikipedia. It is per long standing consensus.  Abhishek  Talk 15:59, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 11 January 2014[edit]

In the proposals sub-section, I request someone to remove the first line i.e "Ahead of the 2009 General Elections in India, all the major parties in Andhra Pradesh supported statehood for Telangana. As a result of this unilateral decision by the Government of India, several members of Andhra Pradesh's legislature submitted their resignations to protest the creation of the new state owing to the pressure from the people in their constituencies." which is unsourced and instead of it add the following lines along with references from here: "On 9 December 2009 the Government of India announced process of formation of Telangana state. After Members of Legislative Assembly & Council from Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions had submitted resignations in response to the announcement, as well as violent protests raised in those regions immediately after the announcement, the decision to form to new state was put on hold on 23 December 2009. The movement continued in Hyderabad and other districts of Telangana.".[2][3] Do the necessary modifications at your will. I am Jayadevp13 but since I am blocked per my own request I cannot possibly make those changes. Regards. - (talk) 07:02, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Adding Telangana[edit]

AP Re-organisation Bill is just passed but not in force. If only notified in Gazette of India, it will come to effect. --βα£α(ᶀᶅᶖᵵᵶ) 11:21, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Population density[edit]

What is the unit for population density -- people per sq km, or people per sq mile? Vedabit (talk) 06:11, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Per square kilometer. I have added it to the table column heading. Abecedare (talk) 21:08, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
