Taking exception to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati's demand of carving out separate Bundelkhand state out of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, the BJP on Sunday said it does not want the state to be bifurcated again.

"I don't agree with BSP president Mayawati's demand," state BJP chief Narendra Singh Tomar told reporters in Shivpuri.

"We don't want Madhya Pradesh to be divided again," he said, adding that the state had already formed a separate authority for the development of Bundelkhand.

In 2000, Chhattisgarh was carved out of Madhya Pradesh.

On discontent in his party over allotting seats in the ongoing civic polls in the state, Tomar said BJP is a big party and wishes of all claimants to fight election can not be fulfilled.

The discontent among party men who were denied tickets is natural, he added.
