Maharashtra-Karnataka row: Uddhav Thackeray demands to declare disputed areas as UT

Nagpur (Maharashtra), December 27: In the midst of the border dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka, Shiv Sena (UBT) president and former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray demanded on Tuesday that the disputed areas be declared Union Territory.

Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray stated that the Opposition supports the resolution after the Maharashtra Assembly unanimously passed it on the border issue with Karnataka. In an interview with reporters, Thackeray stated, "We supported today's resolution. Whatever happens in favour of Maharashtra, we will support it. But there are some questions. For over two years, people (living in border areas) have been demanding to include them in Maharashtra. What are we doing about that?"


"Today government replied that the disputed area cannot be declared as a Union Territory as said by Supreme Court in 2008. However, the situation is not the same now. The Karnataka government is not following it. They are doing an Assembly session there and renamed Belagavi. So we should go to Supreme Court and ask SC to declare it as UT," Thackeray further said.
