A delegation of Maharashtra Congress leaders, led by the Chief Minister, Mr Ashok Chavan, met the party chief, Mrs Sonia Gandhi, and apprised her of the situation in the state in the wake of flaring up of the boundary dispute with Karnataka.

They had already met the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, on the issue.

The Karnataka Chief Minister, Mr B.S. Yeddyurappa, said that “Belgaum is integral part of Karnataka.”

However, Mr Chavan said he was firm on his demand for UT status.
