Politics : National Federation of Small States, Small is Beautiful? or Everybody Wants Power !!
A political pressure group has been formed to influence Delhi and energize Small state movements, as they believe 'Small is better' for effective management and development.
Representatives of the National Federation of Small States met here on Thursday and decided to form a coordination committee and create a “pressure group” in Delhi as part of their efforts to step up movements for new States.
The decision was taken at a colloquium on separate Statehood movements in Telangana, Vidharbha, Haritha Pradesh, Purvanchal, Ladakh, Bodoland and Gorkhaland. The leaders also decided to set up an office of the Federation at New Delhi, T. Devender Goud, president of Nava Telangana Praja Party said.
The Hindu : Andhra Pradesh / Hyderabad News : Effort to raise movements for formation of new States
Key reason, we believe, there are so many movements for seperate states is NOT efficient and fair administration or development. There is a truth in efficiency being small, but that is not the true intent of any of these leaders. The true intent is 'there are more people who want power.' By dividing into as many as possible, a lot more leaders get to be at the helm of affairs.
What do you think we have so many movements for smaller states?
