The Kannada people in Belgaum are now orphaned and are being treated as orphans and this Government and also the previous ones have always supported the MES – Maharashtra Ekikarn Samiti. This was allaeged by the Kannada organizations in a press meet held at Kannada Sahitya Bhavan by various Kannada organisations, including the former Mayor Siddangouda Patil and Belgaum District Kannada Organizations Action Committee leader Ashok Chandargi, KRV leader Talwar.
Siddangouda Patil said MLA Sambhaji Patil had challenged the government only in his speech at the Maha Melava but the govt is not taking any sumo-to action on him. Infact the Govt must cancel his representation in the house for this act. Talwar added, `if they want to, let them go to Maharashtra. Why unnecessary create nuisance here.
We had demanded to meet CM Siddaramiah once but it seems the CM is not even interested to hear the woes of Kannadigas.
