History and significance of Uttarakhand Day
The Princely State acceded to the Union of India in 1949. In 1950, this United Province was renamed Uttar Pradesh. However, the government of Uttar Pradesh could not meet the needs of people belonging to this Himalayan region. Therefore, people started demanding a separate state following the formation of the Uttarakhand Kranti Dal.
The Uttarakhand Kranti Dal worked for years since the 90s to achieve statehood. After years of struggling for years and finally, on November 9, 2000, Uttaranchal, the 27th state of India, was formed by the Uttar Pradesh Regulation Act, of 2000. The border states of Uttarakhand include Tibet, Nepal, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
