Mumbai, 6 Dec Sharad Pawar, the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party, described the situation in the border regions of Maharashtra and Karnataka on Tuesday as “worrisome,” adding that it is time to take a stand in light of what is happening there.

Chandrakant Patil and Shambhuraj Desai, Ministers of Maharashtra  tasked to coordinating the state’s border dispute with Karnataka, had been scheduled to meet with Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti activists in Belagavi, the state’s southernmost city, on Tuesday to discuss the long-standing border dispute.

Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka, stated on Monday that he would advise Eknath Shinde, the chief minister of Maharashtra, not to send any of his cabinet members to Belagavi because their visit would disturb the law and order situation in the border region.
