North Karnataka would be one of the new states created following the general Lok Sabha election in 2024, according to a minister from the state of Karnataka.
“After the 2024 elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi intends to create 50 states in the nation. I learned that he is considering it “Reporters in Belagavi were told by Umesh Katti, who oversees food, civil supplies, and consumer affairs.
He claimed that the State should be divided because the strain of people has grown over time.
“Such ideas are sound since north Karnataka should experience development and its population is growing. North Karnataka ought to grow and become a state. Although the State of (Karnataka) may be separated, we shall continue to be Kannadigas “On the sidelines of an event, Katti stated.
Given the growth in population, which, according to Katti, has gone from two crore to 6.5 crore in the last 60 years, the notion of creating 50 States was a smart one.
Karnataka should be divided into two States, Uttar Pradesh into four, Maharashtra into three, and so on, the minister stated.
Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai responded to Katti’s statement by stating that no request for separate Statehood for north Karnataka has been made at the level of the government.
“Umesh Katti has previously discussed it in his speeches. He’s been saying it for a long time. He should respond to this query himself, “Reporters in New Delhi were instructed by the chief minister.
Katti’s statement, according to Karnataka Revenue Minister R Ashoka, is not at all problematic.
“This has been said by Katti. He has already discussed the idea of giving north Karnataka its own state. More than 100 times have already been said by him. One is Karnataka. A unified Karnataka has been a struggle for many Kannadigas, “In Bengaluru, Ashoka said.
