Mithila or Mithilanchal : proposed state

Regions included: Sitamarhi, Madhubani, Supaul, Ararai, Kishenganj, Purnia, Katihar, Madhepura, Saharsa, Darbhanga, Samastipur, Begusarai, Khagaria districts of bihar

Population (2011): 3.5 crores

Area: 40000 sq KM

Note: Maithili is a language spoken by people of north-eastern Bihar and some districts in Nepal. This area has a distinct identity throughout the history. Even Indian constitution recognize Maithili. Angika is another language spoken in this area. But number of speakers of Angika are too small to form a viable state. So in my opinion a state out of Maithili and Angika speaking regions should be formed.

One thought on “Mithila or Mithilanchal : proposed state

  1. Ok. I know that the first reorganization was done on linguistic basis and that was mainly bcoz ppl could identify themselves only with this common thing. Even though I agree the factor plays an important role today does not the economic viability the more important issue?
