  1. Regionalism arises when the feeling of affinity develops for a language and region which gradually turns into an identity consciousness.
  2. Here, people mainly think about the interest and development of their own region and believe that they should have claim over resources and employment opportunities of their region.
  3. Due to this, they feel proud about their language, literature, traditions, history of social reforms, educational and cultural movements. This leads to the development of a ‘linguistic identity'.
  4. When such linguistic, regional, cultural and other identities get connected, a strong feeling emerges; which is called ‘regional consciousness’.
  5. This sometimes gives rise to independent political parties or pressure groups or movements.
Concept: National Parties - Nationalist Congress Party
