Sanjay Raut said, "We seek permission to go to Belgaum, not Pakistan. Belgaum is Maharashtra's, history of both is similar, culture is similar. The court will decide on this border area. Till then, we demand this border region be declared as Union Territory."

Raut warned that if the border dispute was not resolved through democratic means, his party would opt for violent means.

"Whenever injustice is done to people in Belgaum and other border areas, its effect can be seen in all parts of Maharashtra. If the issue of Kashmir, Cauvery, Sutlej or Belgaum isn't solved through 'lokshahi' (Democracy), we should opt for 'thokshahi' (violence), he said.
