New Delhi, Mar 25 (UNI) The creation of Poorvanchal by carving out parts of East Uttar Pradesh would not help the common man, Sharad Yadav-led Janata Dal (United) said today.
The party claimed that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, instead, should focus on re-opening closed sugar mills in the region. If the closed 36 sugar mills and the Gorakhpur fertilizer factory is repoened then the common man will get employment opportunities,'' said JD(U) Kisan Sabha president Gauri Shanker Sharma.
He claimed that the trifurcation of UP into Harit Pradesh, Bundelkhand and Poorvanchal would only mean appointing new officials, new governors and electing new people's representatives.
''But the common man's plight will remain the same...the example of Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Uttrakhand is ample evidence,'' he claimed.
The JD (U) leader suggested that reopening of old industries would not only provide employment opportunities but wold also help the farmers earn a respectable revenue.
