Jharkhand and implications for smaller states..

The results for the Jharkhand assembly have started coming out..It sure seem to be headed for a hung assembly and a sure recipe for horse trading in the next few days..Only that the new Khoda will be a different Ghodaa..

These results have implications for potential new small states. Apart from the economic viability (http://www.tehelka.com/story_main43.asp?filename=Op261209state_of.asp) one should also consider the implications of short term to medium term political  instability and the pros and cons of it for the realization of benefits that will arise out of being a separate independent state.
