Border dispute: Meeting in Delhi yielded nothing, took Karnataka’s side, claims Uddhav Thackeray. India News – Times of India

Mumbai: Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray Said on Thursday that nothing came out of the Union Home Minister Amit ShahMeeting with Chief Ministers of Maharashtra and Karnataka regarding border dispute
Addressing the press conference after the meeting Maha Vikas Aghadi Allies Congress and NCP, he also said found it difficult to believe that some of the tweets from the verified handle of Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on the issue were not actually posted by him.
Thackeray said, “What was achieved by yesterday’s meeting of Union Home Minister Amit Shah with the Chief Ministers of Maharashtra and Karnataka? It was like rubbing salt on our wounds. As usual the deliberations favored Karnataka.”
The former chief minister demanded to know why Karnataka holds assembly sessions in Belagavi (the northern Karnataka city which is the main bone of contention between the two states) and accorded it the status of a second capital when the border dispute was before the Supreme Court.
“Belagavi, Karwar, Nipani and other adjoining areas (of north Karnataka) want to join Maharashtra. Why is there no response to this demand,” he said.
He also sought to know why the Karnataka chief minister waited till Wednesday’s meeting in Delhi to clarify that some “fake” Twitter handles were posting tweets in his name, fueling tensions.
“What action has been taken so far? Is it believable?” He asked.
The MVA meeting was attended by NCP leader Ajit Pawar and Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan. On a protest march organized by the MVA in Mumbai on Saturday, Thackeray said, “All people who love Maharashtra should join it.”
Pawar and Thackeray said issues such as the border dispute with Karnataka, the humiliation of Maharashtrian personalities and industrial projects moving to other states would be highlighted during the march.
Union minister Shah on Wednesday met chief ministers of both the states after violence broke out in the border region where Maharashtra has laid claim to 865 Marathi-speaking villages in Karnataka besides Belagavi.
Recently, Karnataka has also staked claim on the southern Solapur and Akkalkot regions of Maharashtra, which have a sizeable Kannada-speaking population.
