Poorvanchal
Purvanchal (Hindi: पूर्वांचल , Urdu: پُورواںچل) is a geographic region of northern India, which comprises the eastern end of Uttar Pradesh state and may also include the western districts of Bihar where Bhojpuri is the predominant language. It is bounded by Nepal to the north, Indian state Bihar to the east, Bagelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh state to the south, the Awadh region of Uttar Pradesh to the west and the end of Doab (at Allahabad) in Uttar Pradesh to its southwest.
There has been a political demand to create a separate state. The Purvanchal area is represented by 23 Members of Parliament to the Lok Sabha and 117 legislators in the 403 member Uttar Pradesh state assembly or Vidhan Sabha.
Purvanchal consists chiefly of 4 divisions: the eastern-Awadhi region in the west, the western-Bhojpuri region in the east, the Baghelkhand region in the south, and the Nepal region in the north. It lies on the Indo-Gangetic plain, and together with western Bihar is the most densely populated area in the world. The rich quality of soil and the high earthworm density in the soil versus adjoining districts of Uttar Pradesh is favourable for agriculture. Most of the countryside is given to intensive agriculture. Bhojpuri is the predominant language or dialect in the region, in addition to Hindi, although Awadhi and Baghelkhandi are also spoken in the western and southern areas. Like Bihar state to the east, a large population, slow economic growth, agricultural mechanisation, and the closure of sugar mills have led to increased unemployment, social and political discontent, and some unrest in the region.
In 1991 the government of Uttar Pradesh established the Purvanchal Vikas Nidhi, to fund regional development projects that advance balanced development, meet local needs, and redress regional disparities. But due to corrupt distribution channels, the conditions have remained still the same. Political parties are playing the game of SC/ST/OBC/Muslim vote Bank Politics, which are the major factors behind the backwardness of the region.

THOUGHTS FOREVER...: Poorvanchal people a hot property in Delhi polls
Amitabh Shukla New Delhi, March 1 People hailing from Poorvanchal (Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh) have become a hot property in the political arithmetic of the Capital. The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday roped in the services of film star turned politician Shatrughan Sinha to woo the voters and termed him as the party’s “star campaigner”.
