It was under the state of Bombay Presidency’ that the entire city fell

     under pre independence. This state essentially included princely

     states such as Kolhapur, and Baroda and Dangs in Gujarat .It was

     Congress leaders such as Sardar Patel, and Jawaharlal Nehru who

      felt that Mumbai should remain an ‘autonomous city state’. However,

      it was on May 1st 1960, that the state of Bombay was dissolved and

     Maharashtra and Gujarat were new states that were born.
