Awadh: proposed state

Regions included: Lucknow, Kanpur, Allahabad, Devipatan, Faizabad divisions of UP

Population (2011): 6 crores

Area: 70000 sq KM

Note: Awadh region of UP has a rich culture and traditionally it has been a separate state for centuries. Only after British random reorganization it lost its identity. It is apt time to put things in its perspective. Some argue that Allahabad should be in bhojpuri speaking state rather than awadh. Jury is still out on that issue.
