The Uttar Pradesh State AIDS Control Society (UPSACS) thought differently, however.
Chandra pointed out that Maharashtra had a higher infection rate that Uttar Pradesh, intimating that most cases of AIDS in his state originated with migrant workers traveling to Bombay, where they "see the bright lights and misbehave." State Assembly members had voiced this idea when they remarked in a March 2005 meeting that rising AIDS rates in Uttar Pradesh were the result of "poor and uneducated workers going to Bombay and other states and then returning, and then spreading the disease here." For the senior management of UPSACS and the state government, it all somehow made sense: AIDS did not originate in their corner of India, and neither did high-risk populations like promiscuous gay men.
