Belgaumalt39 boundary dispute with Karnataka.

An editorial in Samnaa on Thursday said that the Congress deputed four of its top ministers to meet Baba Ramdev recently, but had never lent a sympathetic ear to the Marathi- speakers in Belgaum, Karwar and Nippani ( in north Karnataka) who have been demanding union with

Maharashtra for the last 50 years.

” On June 1, 1986, people in Belgaum, Karwar and

other areas protested against the forcible imposition of Kannada language on them. Eight Marathispeaking people were killed in the indiscriminate firing by the Karnataka police. Two days ago, there was a demonstration to commemorate the 25th anniversary of that protest and to pay homage to the eight martyrs. How long we should continue paying homage to our own people?” the editorial remarked caustically.
