It can be traced that regionalism slowly turned from non violent means to violent means to achieve their goals.
From Potti Sriramulu’s non violent means of fatsing to Maharashtra Nav Nirman Sena (MNS) and ULFA’s violent means, regionalism has come a long way.
The platform enables consumers from around the world to buy directly from wholesalers and manufacturers in China and have access to a wide variety of products at wholesale prices.
at consumers worldwide, many of them located in Russia, the United States and Brazil.
Finally, the movement for some time focused on seceding from India to carve out their own Dravidastan or Dravida Nadu.
The movement slowly declined and today they have become prominent regional parties after many splits and factionalism. In Maharashtra Shiv Sena against Kannadigas in the name of Marathi pride and recently MNS activists against Biharis; in Punjab against non-Punjabis that gave rise to Khalistan Movement and earlier Akali Movement; in Andhra, Telangana Movement with an aim of separate state; in Assam ULFA militants against migrant Biharis and Bengalis; in North-East against other Indians.
On 15th of December 1953, when Potti Sriramulu succumbed to death not able to sustain 52 days of marathon fast that was undertaken to demand a separate state for Telugu speaking people, little did he realize that his death would become a launch pad for the dawn of Political Regionalism in India – that would in course of time alter the landscape of India.
But the brand of regionalism that evolved after Potti Sriramulu’s death was legitimate, genuine and logical.
Later it turned against imposition of Hindi as sole official language on non-Hindi speaking areas.
Thus, Andhra Pradesh became the first linguistic state of India.
Today, Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh is renamed as Potti Sriramulu.

As long as they thrive for regional development without discriminating against outsiders, regionalism is good for India. A Bihari becomes Mumbaikar when a bomb explodes in Mumbai and a Mumbaikar becomes Bihari when Kosi wrecks havoc in the plains of Bihar.
