We don`t want further division of MP: BJP

Taking exception to Uttar Pradesh CM Mayawati`s demand of carving out separate Bundelkhand state out of UP and Madhya Pradesh, State BJP chief Narendra Singh Tomar said that his party doesn`t want the state to be bifurcated again.

Shivpuri: Taking exception to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati`s demand of carving out separate Bundelkhand state out of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, State BJP chief Narendra Singh Tomar on Sunday said that his party doesn`t want the state to be bifurcated again.

"I don`t agree with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP)
president Mayawati`s demand," Tomar told reporter here after
he was asked to comment over the clamour of statehood demands
from different parts of the country and development over
Telangana issue.

"We don`t want Madhya Pradesh to be divided again," he
said adding that the state had already formed a separate
authority for the development of Bundelkhand.

Earlier, Chhattisgarh was carved out of Madhya Pradesh in
2000.

Asked about the discontent in his party over allotting
seats in the ongoing civic polls in the state, Tomar said BJP
is a big party and wishes of all claimants to run election
can`t be fulfilled.

The discontent among partymen who were denied tickets was
natural, he added.
