Do not produce another Belagavi in Ballari: Congress
Bifurcating Ballari district will lead to conflict amongst individuals, say Congress leaders.
Bifurcating Ballari district will cause conflict among people, state Congress leaders.
More than half-a-dozen Congress leaders on Wednesday highly opposed the State government’s choice to bifurcate Ballari district declaring that the department will result in conflict between Telugu-speaking and Kannada-speaking individuals.
Formation of the brand-new Vijayanagara district from Ballari district would cause the conflict in the latter. “We don’t want Ballari district becoming another Belagavi”, Congress Rajya Sabha member Syed Naseer Hussain said.
Keeping in mind regular disputes in between Marathi- and Kannada-speaking individuals in the border town of Belagavi, Mr. Hussain said in the occasion of department of Ballari, Telugu-speaking individuals would likely control in all elements of the district’s affairs and administration.
On November 18, 2020, the State Cabinet authorized formation of Vijayanagara district from Ballari district following pressure from Forest and Environment Minister Anand Singh. Mr. Singh, who gave up the Congress in 2019, required the department of the district.
Nevertheless, the federal government has not yet provided an alert on bifurcation.
Speaking at an interview here Mr. Husain, V.S. Ugrappa, former MP, L. Hanumanthaiah, MP, E. Tukaram, previous Minister and MLA, and Santosh Lad, former Minister (all Congress) stated the district was divided with no data, requirements and consultations. More than one lakh people have actually been opposing the split. “Why has the government not divided bigger districts such as Bengaluru Rural, Belagavi and Tumakuru”‘, they asked.
Ballari district was the 2nd largest profits generator to the State. The development of Vijayanagara district would result in department of income and contribution from Vijayanagara would be less than that of Ballari. This would cause variations in the region. “Disunity damages and deprives advancement”, they claimed.
” Let politics of advancement precede and power politics decline”, stated the leaders joined under the banner of Akhanda Ballari Zilla Horata Samiti and prompted the government to repeal its choice.
Smaller sized districts such as Bagalkot and Koppal have not established after division and department of the district was not the requirements for development. Historically, there were close relations in between people of Ballari and Hosapete and the federal government need to not have fun with the beliefs of the people, Mr. Ugrappa said.
