Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: The State Government will file a caveat on the Belgaum issue in the Karnataka High Court anticipating a petition by the Mayor or corporators belonging to the Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti (MES). The caveat will be filed before the court on Tuesday.

The Government is filing the caveat to prevent the MES or any aggrieved party from obtaining an ex-parte order on the supersession. Once the caveat is filed, the Government will have to be heard before any order is passed.
