Border Dispute over Maharashtra-Karnataka is still continuing

A book distributed by the state government named ‘Maharashtra-Karnataka Seemavad: Sangharsh Aani Sankalp’ was delivered recently by Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar (Maharashtra-Karnataka Boundary Dispute: Struggle and Pledge). The book is a progression of posts, news and other material requiring the fuse of Marathi-talking zones in Karnataka into Maharashtra.

The territories ought to be announced a Union Territory under the steady gaze of the Supreme Court gives its decision on the contention, Thackeray said. Pawar was more cautious, expressing that to guarantee a great decision in the high court, the public authority should put forth every legitimate attempt. Since 2004, the case has been in the Supreme Court.

Inter-State Dispute

From time to time, it is long smouldering inter-state conflict resurfaces, much like the problem around the demand for the renaming of Aurangabad. Maharashtra, comprising 814 villages in the districts of Belagavi (Belgaum), Uttara Kannada, Bidar, and Gulbarga, and the towns of Belagavi, Karwar, and Nippani, has claimed over 7,000 sq km of the area along its border with Karnataka. These are all mostly Marathi-speaking regions, and Maharashtra wants them to be integrated with the state.

In the revamping of states along semantic and regulatory lines in 1956, the beginning of the contention lies. The previous Bombay Presidency, a multilingual region, involved Vijayapura, Belagavi, Dharwad, and Uttara Kannada, the present-day Karnataka regions. In 1948, the region of Belgaum requested that the locale be assimilated into the proposed Maharashtra state, with a dominatingly Marathi-talking populace.

The 1956 State Reorganization Act, nonetheless, made Belgaum and 10 talukas of the State of Bombay part of the at that point State of Mysore (which was renamed Karnataka in 1973). The Reorganization of States Commission tried to incorporate talukas with a Kannada-talking populace of more than 50% in Mysore while differentiating limits. In any case, the rivals of the consideration of the area in Mysore have kept up that in 1956, in those districts, Marathi speakers dwarfed Kannada speakers.

In Maharashtra, ideological groups are converged to incorporate the line locales with the region. Each political decision declaration of the Congress, NCP, Shiv Sena, and BJP contains the question. Throughout the most recent sixty years, each Governor’s location to the joint meeting of the Maharashtra Assembly and Council (which diagrams the arrangements and projects of the state government) has alluded to the boundary strife to uproarious commendation from individuals across parties.

Recent Incidents

It isn’t the first occasion when that this issue has arisen in the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) alliance government’s most recent 13 months. Transport benefits between Kolhapur (Maharashtra) and Belgaum (Karnataka) must be suspended for several days following pressures on the two sides of the boundary after Chief Minister Thackeray alluded to the contested zones in the Assembly as ‘Karnataka-involved Maharashtra.’ He likewise named a coordination advisory group of two senior pastors, Eknath Shinde and Chhagan Bhujbal, to direct the speedy goal of the case in the Supreme Court for Maharashtra.

Toward the end of last year, on November 1, which is commended in Karnataka as Rajyotsava or state Creation Day, the Maharashtra government requested that all pastors wear dark groups to communicate fortitude for Marathi-talking individuals in Karnataka. Thackeray emphasized his obligation to redrawing the limits of Maharashtra to incorporate territories that currently lie on January 17 in Karnataka, which is commended as Martyrs’ Day in Maharashtra, hence paying recognitions for the individuals who passed on in the boundary battle to enter Maharashtra in 1956. The guarantee was rehashed by Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar.
