#Belgaum is now a very trending keyword on the social media and the political battle field as well. May what it be but the buck stops at the border dispute.
The corporation which was dissolved and after which this trending has picked up pace, but the work at the corporation is with the same pace. Meanwhile in the city there was a protest rally taken out by the Marathi Yuva Sanghtana and gave a memorandum to the DC and the MES did a rasta roko on Vengurla road.
In the evening Maharashtra NavNirmaan Sena Chief Raj Thackeray said Marathi-speaking people in Belgaum need to rethink about their demand of merging with Maharashtra. He also said Marathi organizations in Belgaum need to practically think about how long a movement can be stretched. He further added we need to explore possibility of conservation of Marathi within Karnataka, if Marathi’s give up merger demand. Maharashtra is full of problems, unsure if Marathi’s in Belgaum will be happy if the city is merged with us. Raj said he understands the feelings of the people but how many generations will we waste on this issue.
The MES and the Shiv Sena have strongly opposed these statements made by Raj.
