As mentioned above, Morarji’s name had gained weight in national politics during the freedom movement, but his primary interest was in the politics of the state, so in 1952 he was made the Chief Minister of Bombay province. Both Gujarat and Maharashtra came under the Bombay province. At the same time, the demand for creating two separate states on the linguistic basis – Maharashtra (Marathi speaking area) and Gujarat (Gujarat speaking area) started growing but Morarji was not ready for such division. In 1960, Morarji ordered firing on the protesters of the United Maharashtra Committee, in which about 105 people were killed. After this incident, Morarji was removed from the post of Chief Minister of Bombay and called to the center.
After resigning as Prime Minister, Morarji Desai retired from politics at the age of 83 and started living in Mumbai. He died on 10 April 1995 at the age of 99.
