Ashok Chavan meets Manmohan

By Devaki

New Delhi, Jul 15: Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to submit the all-party memorandum appealing for the protection of the Marathi-speaking minority in the disputed border districts of Karnataka. Manmohan Singh assured Chavan that the memorandum given to him would be given to the Union Home Minister for further examination.

Chavan after meeting PM informed the media that Manmohan Singh said that the principle of protection of linguistic minorities was enshrined in the constitution. He added that PM did not comment on the Centre's affidavit in the Supreme Court on its boundary row with Karnataka.

Chavan also said that PM refused to comment on the issue as it was a matter of sub-judice. Chavan added that they have requested the Centre to maintain neutrality in the Supreme Court so that they can win the case on merit.

Chavan during his meeting also requested PM to instruct Karnataka State government to maintain status quo in the border districts until the case was decided.
