What is Maharashtra Karnataka border dispute?
Actually the border dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka is 6 decades old. In the year 1956, states were reorganized on the basis of language. Since then, the Belgaum district has been the biggest inter-state border dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka. Apart from this, there is a dispute between the two states regarding some areas of Khanapur, Nippani, Nandgad and Karwar.
Let us tell you that a large population in these areas speak Marathi and Kannada languages and this area has been the center of controversy for a long time. This area came under Karnataka when the states were reorganized in 1956, which was earlier under Bombay, now called Maharashtra. When the matter escalated, the Central Government constituted a commission under the leadership of former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Mehar Chand Mahajan to resolve it.
The dispute between the two states increased because of this.
After this, the dispute between the two states intensified when the commission said in its report that Belgaum could not be recommended to be merged with the state of Maharashtra and cleared Karnataka’s claim on Belgaum. However, Maharashtra rejected it, calling it discriminatory. The commission gave 262 villages including Nippani, Khanapur and Nandgad to Maharashtra and 247 to Karnataka.
However, Maharashtra was demanding 814 villages including Belagavi. The issue arose once again in 2006 when the Maharashtra government reached the Supreme Court and staked its claim on Belgaum. The government has claimed that there is a feeling of insecurity among the Marathi-speaking people living in Belgaum in Karnataka, so it should be included in Maharashtra. The matter is still in the Supreme Court.
