On 1st May Maharastra and Gujrat were created and since this day is celebrated as Maharastra and Gujrat Day. There are some celebrations, public rally speeches by leaders and then all is over.It has become a kindof formality.It is better if leaders take an oathto do their best to develop their state in all directions to make an ideal state as Narendra Modi has converted to Gujrat.

1st May is celebrated as Maharashtra day. On this day the state of Maharashtra attained statehood. The present state was formed in 1960 when the Marathi and Gujarati linguistic areas of the former Bombay state were separated. Bombay then became the capital of the new state. In independent India, Bombay, the bilingual state, continued as one state consisting of Maharashtra and Gujarat. But this equation of two linguistic units in one state did not work and therefore on 1st May 1960, under the Bombay re-organization Act, Maharashtra and Gujarat were divided into separate states. Maharashtra retained the old capital Bombay. Shiv Sena Government has renamed the capital city Bombay into Mumbai. In Mumbai, the Maharashtra Day celebrations are held at the Shivaji Park in central Mumbai. The governor of the state takes the salute at the ceremonial parade, comprising members of the state reserve police force, Brihanmumbai Commando Force, home guards, civil defence, fire brigade and city police.
