‘Demand for separate State not justified’

“Some vested interests and politicians are putting forth the demand for a separate north Karnataka state. That is not just unjustified, it is ridiculous,” he said.

Century-old struggle

“We should all realise that a unified Karnataka was the result of a century-old struggle by cultural leaders of all parts of Karnataka. That is why, asking for division of the State amounts to betrayal,” Mr. Chandru said.
