Vidarbha Rajya Andolan Samiti will form human chains to press for the demand of separate state on February 28 at Variety Square. The Samiti made the announcement on Friday.
Wamanrao Chatap said that the budget session of the state legislature was slated to be held in Nagpur from February 28 but the state government shifted it to Mumbai at the last moment. “The Nagpur Pact is being violated every year,” he alleged.
Chatap said,”The demands of the Samiti included free electricity up to 200 units for residents of Vidarbha, waiver of farm pump power bills. restarting Rs 1,200 crore subsidy to Vidarbha’s industries, etc”.
