Bidar: The Hyderabad Karnataka Horata Samiti will organise a conference of its activists in Bidar on June 19.

“We will decide on the future of our agitation at the conference,” president of the samiti and former Minister Vaijnath Patil told presspersons in Bidar on Monday.

“The Union Government has not acted on the State Legislative Assembly's unanimous resolution demanding amendment to Article 371 of the Constitution to provide special status to Hyderabad Karnataka region. If the UPA Government does not act on the issue quickly, we will have no alternative but to demand a separate State,” Mr. Patil said.
