Uddhav Thackeray asks Centre to declare disputed Belagavi as UT

Nagpur: Former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray argued before the state Legislative Council on Monday that the federal government need to recognise regions of “Karnataka-occupied Maharashtra” as a Union Territory.

Marathi is their daily language and way of life

Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Thackeray stated in the Upper House that the ongoing boundary issue between Maharashtra and Karnataka is not just a matter of language and border but also of “humanity.”

According to him, Marathi-speaking people have lived in the border villages for many years. Marathi is their daily language and way of life, he claimed.

The “Karnataka-occupied Maharashtra” should be proclaimed as a Union Territory by the central government, he stated, “till the matter is pending before the Supreme Court.”

In addition, Thackeray questioned the position taken by the state administration and inquired as to whether Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde had made any comments on the subject. He said, seemingly referring to the
Karnataka administration, who is spoiling the atmosphere? The matter is sub-judice and there is a status quo on it.

The state’s position that the boundary dispute has been resolved and that no territory would be transferred to the neighbouring state has been reaffirmed by the Karnataka legislature.

The function of the federal government as “protector” of both states was contested by Thackeray.
Has the national government served as a watchdog? We anticipate that the guardian will be the central government, Thackeray said.

Additionally, he recommended that members of both Houses view the film “Case for Justice” and study the Mahajan Commission report (on the border issue).
