'Maharashtra creating needless controversy'

Speaking to reporters in Bangalore, the Chief Minister said there is no need for any debate on the issue and Karnataka has every right to decide what it wants. “We have every right to decide what we want in our house. It is left to us to decide what we should do and what not on our land... We need not consult others on our development,” he stated.


Leaders of almost all political parties in Maharashtra had criticised Yeddyurappa’s recent statement that the Government has plans to make Belgaum the second capital of Karnataka.

It was in 2007 that the then chief minister H D Kumaraswamy had first announced the Government’s plans to make Belgaum the second capital. But subsequently the Government had put its plans in the cold storage.

Yeddyurappa also said: “The Mahajan Committee report on the inter-State boundary dispute is final. Belgaum is an integral part of Karnataka. The whole world is aware of this fact.”
