On November 21, 2011, the Uttar Pradesh Assembly had passed a proposal to split the state into four parts - Purvanchal (21 districts), Bundelkhand (7 districts), Awadh Pradesh (21 districts) and Paschim Pradesh (26 districts).

It can be seen that the proposal was passed when Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati was the chief minister of the state.
