Maru Pradesh or Thar: proposed state

Regions included: Ganganagar, Bikaner, Churu, Nagaur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Barmer, Jalor, Sirohi, Pali districts of Rajasthan

Population (2011): 2 crores

Area: 120000 sq KM

Note: Thar desert situated west of Arawalis is home to a sparse population and a underdeveloped economy. Separate state can provide focused approach and it can become home to a new green revolution.

  1. I am a learner .Plz elaborate on the viability of the smaller states you are favouring. Eg. Is the maru pradesh be able to have that much of resources ,being mostly ‘marusthal’ and underdeveloped in industrial or services sectors?
