Aspirant State[edit]

The Bill for "The Commission for the formation of Vidarbha, 2010" was introduced in Lok Sabha by Member of Parliament Hansraj Ahir and has the status: pending for discussion[1]. Hence, please do not remove the Aspirant State tag from the infobox without discussing it here. Pradyumna666 (talk) 06:41, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Biased Article[edit]

The article does not site references to claims. It is biased towards why Vidarbha should be a separate state. The grammar and syntax in the article needs an overhaul. (talk) 18:53, 10 December 2009 (UTC)


I think it is inherently POV to call a place 'backward.' If by this, the author meant "technologically unadvanced" or "socially conservative" or "old-fashioned" or something like that, let's change it to that. I don't think there's any way to interpret 'backward' any anything but a negative way.--Hraefen 21:09, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

Article enrichment done till now[edit]

Till now I am very pleased with the progress done on this article. I have gathered most of the statistical data from various websites of government of India, census board of India, Maharashtra govt., and district websites. The header, though needs elaboration, is now looking to take shape. I would be soon adding more demographic details like religion, schedule caste, schedule tribe population in the region. As always, help is needed and you are welcome.
