He additional mentioned that it’s painful that the Chief Minister of Maharashtra is attempting to sabotage an amicable ambiance.
“Thus, regionalism and talk of linguistics are detrimental to the unity of the country. I condemn this. In Karnataka, the Marathas are living with Kannadigas. While the Kannadigas in the border districts of Maharashtra are living with the Marathas,” he added.
The Maharashtra Chief Minister on Sunday mentioned that his authorities will incorporate areas of Karnataka the place Marathi-speaking individuals are in majority into the state.
