Politics of Harit Pradesh: The Case of Western UP as a Separate State

Abstract

The demand for Harit Pradesh, to be carved out of 17 districts of western UP, has received a boost following the creation of three new states in 2000. This paper looks at certain issues relating to the demand for Harit Pradesh and argues that the demand in turn, intertwined in the politics of region and caste in UP, is also spearheaded by a section of the jats of western UP. Though the agitation has now moved into its second phase, mobilisation is as yet confined to leaders of a few key communities and social groups, and in recent years, has also been beset with intra-jat conflict.
