BJP Minister Umesh Umesh Katti Statement on New States: Is the number of states going to increase to 50 in India like America? A Karnataka minister has given an important statement in this regard. Minister Umesh Katti claimed that PM Narendra Modi is seriously considering this. He said that after the general elections of the year 2024, PM Modi will take important steps in this regard.

There will be 50 states in the country after 2024

Umesh Katti is the Minister of Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs in the BJP Government of Karnataka. He said that after the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the number of states in the country will increase to 50. Kutty claimed that with this decision of the PM, North Karnataka will also become a new state and will move forward on the path of rapid progress.

Talking to the media, Minister Umesh Katti said, ‘Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to create 50 states in the country after the 2024 elections. I have come to know that he is considering it. The idea of ​​bifurcating states is good as the burden of population has increased in the last few years.

4 in UP, 2 states to be formed in Karnataka

Supporting the purported idea of ​​forming 50 states, the minister said that 2 states should be formed from Karnataka, 4 from Uttar Pradesh, 3 from Maharashtra and so on. Katti said that due to the increase in the number of small states, new avenues of employment and development will open in the country and this will also lead to prosperity in the country.

CM Bommai rejected the statement

At the same time, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has rejected the statement of Food Minister Umesh Katti. Bommai said that there is no proposal at the government level to give separate statehood to North Karnataka. The Chief Minister said that he is not aware of any proposal to increase the number of states in the country to 50, nor has the central government discussed it with anyone.

America has 50 states

Let us tell that the number of states in America is 50. Whereas in India this number is 28. Along with this, there are also 9 union territories like Delhi, Chandigarh in the country. The formation of states in India is based on the original language. Due to this, the states have been formed on the basis of all the main languages ​​in the country. Therefore, now the demand for new states has no justification.
