Jharkhand celebrates its formation day

Jharkhand celebrated its formation day on November 15. It started celebrating its formation day since 2000. Before that it was part of southern Bihar state.

Key Points:

  • In the year 2000, BJP led a campaign which led to the passage of the Bihar reorganisation Act, which paved the way for the formation of Jharkhand as the new state.
  • Jharkhand accounts for more than 40% of mineral resource in the country and at the same time, poverty level is also high in the state.
  • Jharkhand’s capital Ranchi is considered as the “city of waterfalls” and sometimes it is also called “Manchester of the East” due to its mineral reserves.
