Shiv Sena seeks PM's intervention on Belgaum dispute

delhi Updated: Jul 27, 2010 11:42 IST

The Shiv Sena on Tuesday demanded Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's intervention in resolving the dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka over Belgaum and held protests at the main gate of Parliament House.

"PM must intervene in Maharashtra-Karnataka dispute," was the slogan on placards held by the protesters, led by senior Shiv Sena leader Manohar Joshi.

The Maharashtra-Karnataka boundary row suddenly came to the limelight following the central government's affidavit in the Supreme Court early July that the disputed areas could not be made a part of Maharashtra merely because a majority of the population there speak Marathi.
