This final chapter considers the story of federal reorganisation as it stands after 2000, focusing on the resurgent demand for Telangana and the debate about Uttar Pradesh’s reorganisation which have both been asserted with greater intensity since 2000. In Telangana, the potential for state-wide agreement about a redrawing of state boundaries, in recent years, has been undermined by the early intervention of the central government, as well as by the contentious position of the state capital, Hyderabad, within a putative Telangana state. In Uttar Pradesh, the renewal of a debate about restructuring the state’s boundaries owes much to the alternative imaginings of the state’s sacred geography by the BSP while in power. As a coda to the main discussion of the book, this chapter sketches the contours of these two prominent debates about the potential for further states reorganisation.
