Why were the linguistic states created?
- The creation of Linguistic States was the first and a major test for democratic politics in our country.
- Many old states had vanished and many new states had been created.
- Areas, boundaries and names of the states had been changed.
- In 1947, the boundaries of several old states of India were changed in order to create new- states.
- This was done to ensure that people who spoke the same language lived in the same state.
