Amid the Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute break out recently, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday, December 6, has warned the neighbouring state to stop the attack on trucks.

Expressing his displeasure, Pawar warned that Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai ‘24 hours’ to stop attacks in Karnataka on trucks with Maharashtra registration numbers.

“There is a limit to our patience. If attacks on vehicles from Maharashtra are not stopped in 24 hours, we won't be able to observe patience,” said Pawar in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Maharashtra ministers Chandrakant Patil and Shambhuraj Desai, appointed for coordinating the state's border dispute with Karnataka, refused to a visit at Belagavi as both have various meetings scheduled in Maharashtra during the day. Clarifying further, the minister exclaimed that the visit has been postponed and not cancelled.

Taking it to Twitter, he stated, "Today we were to visit the border area in Belagavi, about this, we had informed the Karnataka government. The program was organized to discuss the border issue with the people so that a peaceful solution could be found in this matter."

"A heavy force was deployed on the Karnataka border so that we could not go there. This action of the Karnataka CM is not correct, anyone has the right to go anywhere", he stated slamming the Chief Minister of Karnataka Basavaraj Bommai.

He alleged, "The Karnataka government says that law enforcement will be affected if we go there."

On the other hand, Maharashtra Ekikaran Samithi (MES) leader Sarita Patil added: “Their visit is cancelled now but we hope that they will visit on some other day. I also request them to visit by this year. On December 19, there is Adhiveshan (session) in Belgavi and I request them on behalf of Maharashtra Ekikaran Samithi to visit here.”
