BRS leaders said that dialogue should be the way to solve the Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute. BRS leaders including Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao have been saying that some border villages in Maharashtra and Karnataka want to join Telangana due to TS welfare schemes.

The border dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka is intensifying, with both states hardening their stance over Belagavi, Karwar and Nipani in North Karnataka.When state boundaries were redrawn on linguistic lines as per the States Reorganisation Act of 1956, Belagavi became a part of the Mysore state. Maharashtra claims that parts of Belagavi, where Marathi is the main language should remain in Maharashtra.

BRS leader Kavitha said on December 13, “We have constantly said dialogue is the way out. We have shown the way in which we resolved water issues with Maharashtra and Karnataka and then made sure water projects became a success.

We request all states to do the same. Our policy is always dialogue and that has to be the way forward. Border disputes between states have to be peacefully resolved. The Centre should play a big brother’s role and not that of a spoiler as they are doing now.

They are looking for political gains. That is unjustifiable. Our strong belief is that dialogue will solve issues.”The Centre set up the Mahajan Commission in 1996 to resolve border disputes between Maharashtra, Karnataka and Kerala which recommended that Belgaum and 247 villages remain with Karnataka.
