Engaging The Masses
 
Vidarbha, the most backward region of Maharashtra, has suffered neglect at the hands of successive governments of the state. As a result, the demand for a separate state of Vidarbha has been simmering for a long time. However, this demand was always brushed aside on the ground that it does not have popular backing. To find out the truth, Janmanch conducted a referendum on the issue under the able guidance of noted activist and journalist Shri Chandrakant Wankhade, in which the people of Nagpur participated with great enthusiasm.
 
Six hundred and fifty voting booths were set up all over the city for this purpose. Nearly six lakh people voted in the day-long exercise, with more than ninety six per cent voting in favor of separate Vidarbha state. Taking their cue from Janmanch, other NGOs conducted similar exercise at Chandrapur and Yeotmal with identical results. Thus, Janmanch was instrumental in deciding the issue of public support to the demand for separate Vidarbha once and for all.
We also organized a ‘Bus Dekho – Rail Dekho agitation all over Vidarbha to demonstrate the popular sentiment in favor of a separate Vidarbha state, in which people participated in thousands.
A Car Rally from Sindhkhed Raja in Buldana district to Dikshabhoomi in Nagpur was also organised to highlight the demand and to create awareness regarding the benefits of Separate Vidarbha. More than three hundred and fifty cars participated in the rally, which culminated in a massive public meeting at the Dikshabhoomi in Nagpur. Today, the issue of separate Vidarbha is receiving serious attention both in the media and the political circles, the credit for which at least partly goes to Janmanch.
