Vivid News 24: Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) leader Sanjay Raut on Wednesday accused the Centre of being behind the attack on Maharashtra vehicles in Belagavi and claimed the attack would not have been possible without support from New Delhi in light of the escalating border dispute between Karnataka and Maharashtra.
Raut asserted that a “revolution” did indeed occur three months ago—the game of destroying Marathi self-esteem by shattering the backbone—and questioned why those who sided with Eknath Shinde to overthrow the Uddhav-led government were remaining silent.
“Belgaum attacks against Maharashtra vehicles and citizens are impossible without Delhi’s cooperation. The assaults are a component of the same plot. Rise, Marathi! “Tweeted he.
The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation suspended its bus services to Karnataka on Tuesday after vehicles from Maharashtra were attacked and stopped in Belagavi, close to the boundary between the two states. An official from the government stated, “A decision to restart services will be made following a police clearance about the safety and security of the passengers and the buses.”
Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) members claimed to have painted the words “Jai Maharashtra” on four Karnataka buses in Pune as retaliation for the assault in Belagavi.
Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka, spoke with deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and chief minister Eknath Shinde of Maharashtra as a result of the escalation. The two states have agreed to keep the peace, but neither has shifted its position on its claim to the border villages that constitute the crux of the argument.
Bommai recently called for the consolidation of “Kannada-speaking” communities in the Maharashtra cities of Akkalkot and Solapur and claimed that several villages in the Sangli district’s Jat taluka desired to join the southern state.
“However, there has been no change in our position about the Karnataka border because of the good relations between the populations of the two states. And the Supreme Court will continue the legal battle, “Bommai tweeted.
Amit Shah, the Union home minister, would be spoken to by Devendra Fadnavis, who also encouraged the people of Maharashtra not to retaliate.
