Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka state, said on Thursday that the state has no plans to advocate for the creation of a separate state for North Karnataka.
At the federal level, Bommai claimed, “North Karnataka as a different state is not being discussed or advocated.”
Bommai stated in reaction to Umesh Katti’s comments regarding the possibility of a breakaway state for North Karnataka: “Umesh Katti has already mentioned it in his talks. He has been saying it repeatedly. He needs to answer this question directly.
The material indicates that Katti has periodically advocated for the establishment of a breakaway state and called for the division of the state. We need a distinct state, and that is our goal, he had said. The residents of North Karnataka are suffering as a result of Bangalore being a hub for only the residents of South Karnataka.
Before Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits the state capital cities of Bengaluru and Mysore, Bommai promised to have an investigation on the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) road’s poor construction conducted at Karnataka Bhavan in the nation’s capital.
