After Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai claimed some villages of Jat taluka in Sangli district, the politics of Maharashtra has been stirred up for the last 2 days. When senior leader Sharad Pawar was asked about the same, he gave a blunt reply and challenged the Karnataka government.
Belgaum Karwar Nipani Bhalki Bidar has been fighting for inclusion in Maharashtra for many years. Maharashtra has remained consistent in this fight. I heard Bommai’s statement about Jat yesterday. Pawar commented on borderism saying that if the government there is ready to leave the entire area of Belgaum Karwar Nipani to us, then it will be possible to discuss what can be given to them.
No village in the state will go out
“The 40 villages in Sangli’s Jat taluka that are said to go to Karnataka is an old demand. Now the situation has changed. The state government has implemented many schemes and concessions in border villages. So no village in the state will go out for water or for any other reason. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde testified that it is the responsibility of our government.
Chief Minister Shinde suddenly came to Shirdi on Wednesday and had conjugal darshan of Sai Samadhi. Revenue Minister Radhakrishna Vikhe, Education Minister Deepak Kesarkar and officials were present on this occasion. After that, talking to the media, the Chief Minister said, ‘Maharashtra-Karnataka border question is in the court. However, we want this issue to be resolved through counseling. Meetings have also been held for this purpose. The central government should also take the role of counseling for this. At that time there was a drought situation, so the villages of Sangli district were in demand. Now effective implementation of other government schemes including water schemes has started there.’ Meanwhile, we are going to Guwahati to see Kamakhya Devi,’ said Shinde.
