Minister Mayawati`s proposal to divide the state into four
parts, the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) on Sunday said it would bring a

for creation of Awadh Pradesh, Paschim Pradesh, Bundelkhand
and Purvanchal in the Assembly session commencing tomorrow, it
finds no mention in the list of business.

this regard," RLD leader in the Assembly Kokab Hamid and party
state chief Baba Hardev Singh said in a joint press conference
Asked whether they would support the BSP if it brings a

in favour of smaller states and would support the move.
"The BSP should also support our resolution," he said.
