PKB Chakravorty, DG police Maharashtra told that the session was aimed at demanding separate Vidarbha, as BJP had promised in the previous election to provide their support when they come to power but no step was taken from their part and as the next election are to be held so the delegates will be called from all over the Vidarbha to discuss the further course of action.

Suresh Mane a member of BRSP said that the demand for a separate state often seems like a political issue but the fact is it is an economical issue due to which every day a farmer dies. People, who promised to give new state, yet did not show their support must not be spared, and have to come together to support the people fighting for the betterment of the Vidarbha.
