    We don’t want separate state. Bundeli part of MP is muchmore happy than UP part. Being of part MP we are safe from Gunda gardi, corruptionand caste politics which is extremely prevailed in UP. We don’t want UP culturein MP area; if UP bundeli part want a separate state then they can fight for astate with UP part.
