Replying to a motion tabled by T B Jayachandra, Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Assembly, the CM said that there was no question of handing over any land of Karnataka to Maharashtra.

Demanding the implementation of Mahajan Commission report, he said that Karnataka's stand on the border dispute was clear.

"Karnataka will never compromise on land and water with its neighbouring States. Kannadigas are peace-loving people and they do not want unpleasantness,'' he said.

Referring to the burning of a Karnataka bus at Latur in Maharashtra, Yeddyurappa said that the Karnataka Home Minister has already spoken with his counter part in Maharashtra.

Jayachandra, who tabled the motion, said that the government should give protection to Kannadigas living in Maharashtra. Blaming the State Government for the violence in Maharashtra, he said that violent incidents would not have taken place if the Government allowed MES to hold the Maha Melava.

Minister R Ashok said that the government has taken a decision to stop plying of buses to Maharashtra and vice versa temporarily. He said that the Transport Department had incurred a loss of Rs 10 lakh due to the bus burning at Latur by the Chava Sanghatana.

1/21/2009 7:36:00 PM We are in India. I hope I will continue living in India. What else we require with these politicians. Some people don't give water and some are more worried about Tamilians living for generations in other countries than for fellow Indians like Kannadiga, Telugu, Malayalees. They scout for projects that are developed by Gujarathis, maharashtrians and others by giving thousands of acres but fail to provide basic requirements including setting up multi language schools say for example Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi & Urdu schools in Tamil Nadu; Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam & Marathi schools in Karnataka; Tamil & Kannada schools in Kerala. The situation is no different in all States. I dream that one day all these borders in India are wiped out for better tomorrow.

1/21/2009 7:26:00 PM Look a Tamilian is talking about being Indian. This is a state which so far in history has never raised any issue that is pro-india but pro TN. Damn such states. I am waiting for a day when this state gets gets severed from Indian union and we get rid of scum

1/21/2009 6:58:00 PM Are kanadigas Indian? These idiots should learn how to be Indian? What is this crap "Karnataka will never compromise on land and water with its neighbouring States." All the neighbouring states are India- is it not?
By Ram
1/21/2009 6:31:00 PM I think Karnataka is serious in moving away from united india. these guys never had( will have) friendly relationship with any of their neighbouring state. Kanndigas are only the as--oles who gives more importance to their local flag than national flag.

1/21/2009 4:53:00 PM Will the Shiv Sena and MNS please take care of Vidarbha region first where farmers commit suicide almost on a daily basis rather than ask for Belgaum. People who can't take care of what is already in their state cannot ask for more land. and BTW, what difference does it make for the marathis who live in Belgaum, do they expect to suddenly come into a lot of money ? The only ones to benefit will be the political goondas who are driving this state boundary agenda.

1/21/2009 3:42:00 PM People from states where there is lack of work (like Tamil Nadu and Kerala for example) come to other states in search of work. Obviously over a period of time the population from these states increases. That does not mean that the state boundary should change. This will set a very bad precedent. Karnataka is suffering because Cong govt is in centre. Karnataka should make it clear that any talk of redrawing the state border will give rise to revolt against the state of India and ultimate break away of Karnataka from India (and similar other states) who are fed up with games these politicians play

1/21/2009 2:27:00 PM Tony, Are you suffering from convoluted brain syndrome, because every sentence contradict each other. Maybe you should start worrying about your state (looks like a Mallu). Karnataka is no Bihar, with or without Bangalore. The state boundaries were drawn long time back and everyone should honour that. Belgaum has become a part of Karnataka. Going by same logic, will Karargod become Karnataka's part, similarly will Sholapur become karnataks part. Karnataks has bever raised these issues even though more kannadigas live in these places than peolf of native origin. Check your facts first

1/21/2009 2:20:00 PM Politicians are same everywhere in India. But where do they come from? From thin air? The very own inner nature of we fellow Indians come out boldly, when we get power and authority. Even the son of a local councilor or a police man behaves as if he keeps the entire law in his back pocket. How many of us avoid taking advantage of our relationship with a politician or with people in power? Indians never miss an opportunity for malpractice. Unless the ethical standards of the common man improves, you can't expect the politicians alone to be saints of India. Coming to this issue, both Maharashtra and Karnataka have certain fundamental problems. They have unnecessary disputes with the neighbouring states. They often tend to forget that the greatness of their biggest assets (Mumbai and Bengaluru) was not achieved by their own people. The only thing what they could do was to change the names.

1/21/2009 11:32:00 AM Karnataka without Banglore is just like Bihar. More Tamilians live in Bangalore than kanndigas. Can we make it part of TN because of the majority population is Tamils. Kannadigas should learn to live peacefully with their fellow country man.
By Tony
1/21/2009 10:55:00 AM I don't think Sonia has a hand in this issue. A petition was filed during shiv sea regime to adjust border with Karnataka. The ministers of two state are exchanging some statements. so people like Kailash. needs to watch befor they write any libel comment
By Raj Thackrey
1/21/2009 4:17:00 AM This is a creation of Sonia Gandhi and that's how she wanted us to fight each others then she take advantages on central level. that's how she started in Mumbai and have killed north Indians and then she put all blame on Raj Thakrey. come on Indian People get rid of these Old Polticians. and bring new blood and save India once and for all. give Sonia Gandhi One way Ticket for Pakistan.

1/21/2009 12:32:00 AM I am so happy to note that all the comments above have clearly seen that this is no more than a charade for the oncoming elections. Thank you, my fellow Indians !

1/20/2009 12:16:00 PM Politicians fighting for land within India are not at all true Indians. It seems they dont have anything else to think of and they are just disturbing the peace and trying to attract public attention.
By Shiv
1/20/2009 12:02:00 PM Elections are very near. So, PEOPLE BEWARE! Politicians of all parties will stoke the passions of the people on one pretext or the other, so that they can swing the mood of the people in their favour. No state can survive by itself given the distribution of the resources in the country. Let us strive to make INDIA great and each of our state within the above condition. Please DO NOT GIVE EAR TO THESE SELF SURVIVING POLITICIANS. During the Mumbai attacks these politicians went into hiding. So wake up wake up my dear INDIANS!!

1/20/2009 11:57:00 AM this is not an issue to share it's just currupt politics in india which must require cure by genaration.

1/20/2009 11:31:00 AM Mr. Guru , Nothing is wrong with Maharashtrians or Kannadigas. Political parties manupulate issues for votes. In indian politics this doesn't have any significance. Every state has a dispute. Kerala Karnataka for Kasargod , Kerala-Tamilnadu for Kanyakumari Karnataka Maharashtra for Belgaum. All states are ruled by corrupt indian political breed. I am born in Kerala, Brought up in Karnataka , Working in Maharashtra. I am a true indian. At eork i speak Hindi, English & Gujrati. It is time we think as indiians.

1/20/2009 11:22:00 AM what is wrong with these people in Maharashtra? first they abuse North Indians... now they want Karnataka Land... my god... even the people support them, People from all over India supported the Mumbai blasts... but the politicians are crazy..
By Guru
1/20/2009 11:09:00 AM Why are people being carried away by these polticians... In we are all part of the Indian Union... Polticians and parties want to create issues to divert attention from real issues. GROW UP PEOPLE... This is not like discussing J&K issue with Pakistan. Whether the land is in Maharashtra or Karnataka, it is definitely within the Indian Union...
