The Shiv Sena on Thursday said that the Maharashtra government should approach the Supreme Court and urge it to send a contempt notice to the Karnataka government for its Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s remark about making Belagavi the second capital of the state.

The Sena said Maharashtra and Karnataka were embroiled in a border dispute, centring around Belagavi in the Supreme Court and Kumaraswamy’s remark, reportedly made on July 31, was “like rubbing salt into the wounds of people wanting to be part of Maharashtra”. Maharashtra claims Belagavi, part of the erstwhile Bombay Presidency but currently a district of Karnataka, on linguistic grounds.

On July 31, Kumaraswamy had said his government was mulling shifting some of its offices to the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha in Belagavi, in an attempt to address allegations of discrimination levelled by the people of north Karnataka.

“Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy has announced that Belgaum will be made the second capital of the state. This is like rubbing salt into the wounds of people wanting to be a part of Maharashtra,” the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
