Belagavi: Outlining measures initiated by him ever since he was
appointed as Minister for Karnataka-Maharashtra boundary dispute, H K Patil said, the state has been able to find a lot of positives in connection with the vexed dispute between both the states as the Supreme Court which formed Sarin Committee based on Maharashtra’s appeal, has now decided to make way for a hearing constitutionally.
He said, the Supreme Court showed its support to Karnataka in the case. The minister said, it was the right of Parliament to take up the issue of boundaries between two states and Supreme Court did not have powers to take it up.`The Karnataka government questioned the constitutional validity of Supreme court to take up an issue related to boundaries of two states,” he said.
The minister assured people that he was in touch with many
pro-kannada leaders and discussions on whether the apex court could take up the controversial issue were going on.
