Gulbarga, Nov 26: The Hyderabad Karnataka Horata Samithi(HKHS) which is spearheading the agitation demanding conferring special status to Hyderabad-Karnataka, region, the most backward area in the state by getting amendment to Article 371 of the Indian Constitution have threatened to hold demonstration before Parliament.
Speaking to newsperson HKHS president and senior BJP leader Vaijanath Patil said that all the political parties in the state would be invited to participation in the agitation in front of the Parliament.
Stating that special status under Article 371 of the Constitution was granted to neighbouring Vidharbha region in Maharashtra and Telangana in Andhra Pradesh, however people of Hyderabad-Karnataka region were shown discrimination.
Mr Vaijanth Patil who is a BJP leader, said that the HKHS have lost confidence in taking all party delegations and to meet Prime Minister and submit memorandum. "The then Chief Minister S M Krishna, N Dharam Singh and present Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa have led delegations and submitted memorandums urging to amend Article 371 but nothing happened", he regretted.
He said a bandh in the H-K region comprising five districts would be observed during the first week of December and the date would be announced later, in protest against continued negligence shown by the Union government over the issue.
