Chief Ministers Of Maharashtra And Karnataka To Meet Amit Shah Over Border Dispute

Eknath Shinde, the chief minister of Maharashtra, and Basavaraj Bommai, his counterpart, will meet with Home Minister Amit Shah at 7.30 p.m. today to discuss the boundary dispute between the two states. Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, will also be present.

“We will make our position on the border dispute known when the Union Home Minister calls the Chief Ministers of both states to discuss it,” the statement continued. When the matter goes before the Supreme Court, I will be providing details regarding all the developments that have occurred since the State Reorganisation Act up to that point.

The border dispute grew more heated last week, with both sides’ vehicles being targeted, leaders from both states speaking out, and pro-Kannada and pro-Marathi activists being held by police in the border region of Belagavi.

Following this, the chief ministers of Maharashtra and Karnataka spoke over the phone and concurred that all sides should maintain peace and the rule of law.

The state-run bus company of Maharashtra announced on Wednesday that it had discontinued 382 of the 1,156 daily bus trips it ran to the neighbouring state of Karnataka due to the simmering border dispute.

According to a statement from the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC), the decision to partially suspend bus services to Karnataka was made in response to directives from the neighbourhood police and district government.

The MSRTC buses travel to Karnataka from a number of locations in Maharashtra via the districts of Nanded, Osmanabad, Solapur, Sangli, Kolhapur, and Sindhudurg.

U T Khader, the deputy leader of the opposition in the Karnataka legislature, criticised the BJP governments in the state and at the federal level on Friday for failing to settle the boundary dispute in Belagavi between Karnataka and Maharashtra. Speaking to the media in this location, Khader urged the Centre to take quick action to address the situation.

Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka, is not making courageous judgments on the matter, and as a result, the Kannadigas near the border are suffering, he claimed. The Congress leader said the administration should explain why they are unable to come up with a solution to the issue, alleging that the chief minister is failing the state’s citizens by refusing to take a harsh stand on the matter.

BJP Leader Bawankule: SC Must Decide Maha-Ktaka Border Dispute Right Away. Chandrashekar Bawankule, the head of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Maharashtra, stated on Saturday that the Supreme Court has to hear the case involving the Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute immediately and issue a ruling.

In advance of the arrival of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the city, he was speaking at a press conference here.

Ahead of Sunday’s official opening of several development projects in Nagpur, the BJP leader praised the prime minister and urged the populace to give him a hearty welcome.

According to Bawankule, the Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis government has made solid arguments in the Supreme Court regarding the Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute.
