Black day observed


mesblackdayMaharashtra Ekikaran Samiti(MES) workers took out a silent rally on cycles sporting black flags to remind people of the “injustice” done to Marathi-speaking people by including Belgaum and more than 800 towns and villages along the boundary dominated by this linguistic community in Karnataka. MES has held this protest every year for the past 58 years.



  1. The problem in Belgaum and other disputed part of the state is, anything done, any activity conducted by Marathi-speaking people is wrong and it is blamed.

  2. The worst part is they are pushing that innocent kid into these hopeless politics. Imagine the impact it would have on these kids’ minds as they grow up amongst such hatred.

  3. MES doesn’t have any responsibility to develop the town. Neither the Karnataka government is looking after what MES does in Belgaum. They say “we have protested for 58 years for Belgaum”. Dear MES, if you would have worked for even 58 days in these 58 years, we would have seen a little bit of progress in Belgaum.

    I can’t believe I saw the same Belgaum even after returning from onsite after 3 years!!!!!

    Shame on MES. They just want to eat public money and in turn marathi public supports it.

  4. If only kannadigas came out with black flags in sollapur, akkalakote, hollapur in maharastra,.. ooty, hogenakkal etc in TN… kasaragood in kerala.. ananthapur, hindupur in AP, then karnataka would have been much bigger than what it is today. Sad that “Assimilation” is one-sided when it comes to Kannadigas.

  5. Well said Arjun…. totally agree with you.
    people should work towards making Belgaum as one of the best city in INDIA

  6. Lol. One valuable day of their life wasted.. Anyways it was a great patriotic day for Belagaavi and was a grand success.. 🙂

  7. Waste of time and energy!! Get the life dude!! Try to adjust and live… Let your people glorify the karnataka state.

    • what problem you guys are facing in belgaum so that you will be comfortable if its in Maharashtra.the language?Even we,most of kannada people learnt marathi and started speaking to you people in marathi.What else you want??
