“Our government will take every measure to make sure that there are no problems with the villages in Jath Taluka of Sangli,” Shinde told reporters in Shirdi. “The solution of those villages has been adopted since 2012 when they had water problems. Since then, however, plans have been made in the Jath villages of Taluka and some have been carried out. Others will be taken in due time. Furthermore, we have announced several welfare programs for Marathi speakers residing in the Maharashtra-Karnataka border area,” added Shinde.
“Maharashtra wants to settle the matter amicably with Karnataka. The governors of both these states recently held a meeting on the matter. Even the Center is playing a constructive role to resolve disputes by consensus,” said Shinde.
Shinde’s vice captain Devendra Fadnavis also asserts that not even a single village from Maharashtra will be merged with any other state, instead they will take the legal route to include in the Marathi speaking areas of the present state in Karnataka . “It is a legal battle between the two states and the government of Maharashtra will resolve this in Supreme Court to include Marathi speaking areas like Belgaum (now Belagavi), Karwar and Nipani in our state,” said Fadnavis.
The state government delegation will soon meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and interior minister Amit Shah on the border dispute, Maharashtra Minister Shambhuraj Desai was quoted as saying by ANI. Since its founding in 1960, Maharashtra has been embroiled in a dispute with Karnataka over the status of Belgaum district and 85 other Marathi-speaking villages.
