Will Enter Karnataka Like China Entered India, Says Sena’s Sanjay Raut

Sanjay Raut said he did not need anyone’s “permission” to visit Karnataka


With tensions simmering between Karnataka and Maharashtra over the border issue, Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) leader Sanjay Raut on Wednesday sparked a fresh debate by saying, “We will enter Karnataka like China has entered the country.”

The head of the party said that he does not need anyone’s “permission” on this issue.

“Like China has come in, we will come in (Karnataka). We don’t need anyone’s permission. We want to solve it through a discussion but the Karnataka CM is fanning the flames. There is a weak government in Maharashtra and it is not taking any stand on it,” Sanjay Raut said. .

The leader’s statement comes at a time of heightened tension between Maharashtra and Karnataka in the decades-long border dispute. The case has also reached the Supreme Court.

Eknath Shinde’s government is facing criticism over the issue. The Opposition has also raised the issue in the ongoing winter session of the Maharashtra Assembly.

Leader of Opposition Ajit Pawar had earlier raised the issue of border dispute in the Assembly and said, “A Lok Sabha member from Maharashtra has been stopped from entering Belgaum. In a meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah, it was decided that no one will be there. He stopped going there, then how can he take it?” such a decision by the collector there?’

Responding to the issue raised by Mr. Pawar, Chief Minister Shinde said, “For the first time, the Home Minister of the country mediated the border dispute, he has taken this issue seriously, we have presented it to him in favor of the border residents. Amit Shah made his point on the border dispute. , now there should be no politics in the border dispute, we should join the border neighbors.”

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis concurred with Chief Minister Shinde’s remarks and said the government will look into the matter.

Tension has prevailed in Belagavi border areas of Maharashtra’s Karnataka border after members of the Maharastra Ekikaran Samiti (MES) and the National Congress Party staged a protest demanding entry into Belagavi on Monday.

The Belagavi Police denied permission to the MES to hold its Maha Melava at the Tilakwadi Vaccine Depot and served prohibitory orders under the jurisdiction of the Tilakwadi Police Station.

Section 144 has been imposed in the area and heavy security was deployed at the venue of the MES convention scheduled to be held on the first day of the Winter Session of the Karnataka Assembly today.

The border dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka dates back to the enactment of the State Reorganization Act of 1956. The Maharashtra government demanded realignment of its border with Karnataka.

After that, the two states formed a committee of four members. The Maharashtra government expressed willingness to transfer 260 predominantly Kannada-speaking villages, but Karnataka rejected the proposal.

Later, both governments approached the Supreme Court on the matter.
