  1. PLease come up with some solution for this long pending boundary dispute. So that belgaum can become a peacefull place . Its indeed peacefull,But due to politics and other issues the matter is being hyped. Local people in BELGUAM CITY have no problems whatsoever.. Marathi or Kannada.. there’s no problems.. But external ppl come in and they take advantage of this border issue. Hopefully this time Mr.Chaavan and Mr.Yedurappa sit together and come up with an end-end solution.
