The state buses with a new logo containing the words ‘Jai Maharashtra’ were flagged off from Mumbai Central to Belgaum on Friday.

However, the development comes amid the dispute between the Maharashtra and the Karnataka Government over the slogan of ‘Jai Maharashtra’.

A few days ago, Karnataka’s urban development minister Roshan Baig had said that posts of anyone who chants ’Jai Maharashtra’ will be taken away.

Following which, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis condemned the statement.

Despite the outrage, Maharashtra Government’s transport minister Diwakar Ratote made the decision that every state bus will carry the ‘Jai Maharashtra’ logo on it.
