Punjabi Suba Demand

Description In the post-independence period, majority of the Indian states were reorganized on linguistic basis by government of India, but it refused to create a Punjabi-speaking state on similar lines. This SGPC publication makes a strong case for the creation of Punjabi Saba based on linguistic basis. It provides justification for the agitational approach adopted by the mainstream Sikh political party, Shiromani Akali Dal. Finally, the demand was conceded and a Punjabi-speaking state created in 1966. This paper discusses the genesis, and factors in favour of Punjabi-speaking state[edit]
