Uddhav Thackeray also demands Mumbai to be union territory

Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has recently made a demand from the Centre. He said, "the disputed area should be made a Union territory till the border dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka is resolved. The matter between the two states is presently pending in the Supreme Court. The book 'Maharashtra-Karnataka Seemism: Struggle and Sankalp' was recently released by Dr Deepak Pawar at Sahyadri Guesthouse in Mumbai.

In the meantime, he said, "What happened so far has happened. Now we have to fight to win. We have to work according to the time-bound programme. The issue of border dispute is presently pending in the Supreme Court. But the way the Karnataka government is behaving is contempt of court. He changed the name of Belgaum to Belagavi. He made it the second capital of the state here. He also called the session by forming an assembly there. '

He also said, "When there is a dispute between two states, and the matter is pending in the Supreme Court, the centre should play an impartial role. Marathi speaking areas bordering both the states should be declared as Union territories till the Supreme Court decides. We have to make concerted efforts so that Marathi-speaking areas can be brought to Maharashtra. We have to fight till we win. If this matter is not solved by this government, it will never emerge. In Karnataka, the government does not stop misbehaving with the Marathi-speaking people on the border. '

The leaders of almost all parties were involved in the dedication ceremony of this book. In response to Uddhav Thackeray's demand, Karnataka deputy CM Laxman Sawdi has responded. He has said, "Mumbai should be made a part of Karnataka. I urge the Centre to declare Mumbai as a Union territory till the dispute is resolved."
