Centre recognises Belagavi as part of K'taka: Ananth

Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers H N Ananth Kumar said on Tuesday that the union government recognises Belagavi, Khanapur, Nippani and Karwar were integral parts of the State and that there was no need for any confusion.

The minister said that he would speak to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, urging him not to disturb the peaceful environment in the State by raking up the boundary row or create confusion on the issue as it had been resolved already.

Dispute resolved
The Karnataka-Maharashtra boundary dispute had been resolved as per the report of the Mahajan Commission, Kumar said.

Speaking at the Vijay Sankalp Samavesh organised by the BJP here, Kumar said that the Mahajan Commission report had acknowledged that Belagavi, Khanapur, Nippani and Karwar were integral parts of the State and would remain so.

The union government had appointed the Mahajan Commission after both the states had promised to abide by its report, he said.
