The delegation, which met the Governor at Raj Bhawan here yesterday also requested him to extend the term of three Statutory Development Boards (SDBs) for Vidarbha, Marathwada and rest of Maharashtra, Sena spokesperson Neelam Gorhe told

"The tenure of these boards, established in 1994 for ensuring regional balance in development, ends on March 31 and the delegation explained to the Governor that the tenure should be extended to ensure development of these backward
regions," Gorhe said.
