I want a state of my own too

All I need to do is pretend to starve and die. The Indian government will carve a state out for me.

I am not in principle opposed to having more states in India (India has 3 times the population of the US and has only 28 states right now, compared to the US' 50). There is probably something to be said for further decentralization.

That said, I find the idea of a dude threatening to starve to death being the reason for the creation of a state quite antithetic to how things ought to be done in a democracy.

I will withhold further judgment until I review the facts of the matter.
