Belagavi Border Dispute: Sanjay Raut was referred to as a “China spy” by Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai in response to his remarks about “entering” the state.
Sanjay Raut, the leader of the Shiv Sena, recently said that “just like how China entered [Indian territory], we will enter [Karnataka]” without permission. Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai referred to Raut as a “Chinese agent” while passing a resolution on the border dispute with Maharashtra (Belagavi Border Dispute) on Thursday.
“Based on the way Sanjay Raut spoke, I believe he is pro-China. He opposes nationalism. What else can I use to reach him? We shall act like the Indian Army if you behave like the Chinese,” Bommai warned the Assembly in Belagavi during its winter session.
The Uddhav Thackeray faction of the Shiv Sena’s Raut MP recently declared, “Just as China has penetrated [Indian territory], we will enter [Karnataka].” No one has to give us permission. We want to discuss a solution, but the Karnataka chief minister is starting a fire. Maharashtra’s government is ineffective. It doesn’t take a position on it.
Karnataka’s position on the Belagavi border dispute was reiterated in a resolution that was approved by the Assembly. The BJP leader in Maharashtra, where the saffron party is in power with the Shiv Sena group led by Eknath Shinde, blasted ministries and politicians in his speech.
NCP leader Jayant Patil made a speech, to which Bommai responded, “He has made a comment in the House that reflects his culture and immaturity. This exemplifies the leadership style of Maharashtra. The public is aware of the situation. People who live near borders get along well and live in peace.
“Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Maharashtra are our border states. Only Maharashtra stirs up pointless issues of Belagavi Border Dispute for political purposes. Even our ministers have received letters from municipalities in Maharashtra requesting to join Karnataka. Solapur and Akkalkot residents have contacted us.
They are fed up with Maharashtra’s administration. But we have never gone to create a rift. Instead of looking at the Karnataka region, let the Maharashtra government focus on developing those regions,” he added
“Let’s not sink to such depths. In a polite manner, we will answer them (Maharashtra). As Indians, we. China is a hostile nation. Does he not respect the federal government or have any manners? The Congress leader stated that Maharashtra needed to take lessons from the United States.
Siddaramaiah, the head of the opposition and a former chief minister, also criticized Raut’s remark against China on Belagavi Border Dispute.
