Recently there were many rumours on social media saying that Uttar Pradesh will be divided into 3 States. The same was denied by the State official saying that there was no such proposal.
As mentioned by the author, small states are much better to have better governance but administrative expenses will go up. Andhra Pradesh was divided into AP and Telangana. But after division, we are not able to see any progress in both the states. AP is the worst hit after division. No progress and the state are even not in a position to pay salaries to the staff itself. There is no clue how the state will manage the financial crisis. Irrespective of the size of a state, good governance will depend more on the efficiency and the ability of the party that is in power as on date.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Later nobody ever tried to put this proposal at the forefront and implement it at the ground level. Secondly, such a big state is a big vote bank for caste-based and religion-based politics for many parts and such division will cause such vote banks to be divided as these four divisions will then think about regional development rather than other petty issues.

Second factor which is very important and which is generally seen by us is that when there is some personal ambition of a person for becoming the chief minister of a state but cannot become as already better and influential persons are available and sitting in those positions.
So these people will start an agitation on various issues and grounds asking for the new state and that ambitious person will provoke the local people for that and become their leader and in many cases will become the chief minister of the new state.
Many states are getting divided in smaller states in this way.
