1980s may be seen as a period of rising regional aspirations for autonomy, often outside the framework of the Indian Union. Linguistic states divided on the basis of language. It is common in multilingual country like India where diverse languages are spoken. So, for better administration and reduction of the possibility of regional conflicts in future, states in India were carved out on linguistic basis.
The accommodation of regional demands and the formation of linguistic state were also seen as more democratic. We can justify this statement by giving some arguments.
*It is almost 60 years that the formations of Linguistic States have changed the nature of democratic politics in a positive and constructive way.
*Formation on the basis of language became a uniform basis for drawing the state boundaries. It helped in uniting the country rather than disintegration.
*Regional aspirations when fulfilled give strength to the people and make democracy a success.
*The accommodation of regional demands and the formation of linguistic states permitted to maintain the linguistic and cultural diversity of the country without upsetting the unity of the nation.
