“The Union Home Minister has urged the chief ministers of both states to resolve the border dispute, and we will make our stand clear.” “I will share details about everything that has happened since the State Reorganisation Act until now,” Mr Bommai said.

Last week, the border dispute grew more heated; vehicles from both sides were targeted, leaders from both states raised their voices, and pro-Kannada and pro-Marathi demonstrators were detained by police in the border region of Belagavi.

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

The border problem first emerged in 1957 following the reorganisation of governments along linguistic lines. Belagavi, which was a part of the former Bombay Presidency, was claimed by Maharashtra since it contains a sizable Marathi-speaking population. Additionally, 814 Marathi-speaking villages that are today a part of Karnataka were claimed by it.

Karnataka claims that the demarcation took place based on the linguistic divisions made in accordance with the 1967 Mahajan Commission Report and the States Reorganization Act and is decisive.
