Protecting law and order is the duty of every state as well as maintaining peace and tranquility. The Maharashtra state must take steps to reduce the gap between two states. Our’s is law abiding State and we work within our rights. The Maharashtra state filed the case in 2004 and we are fighting the case,” he added.
Bommai said the State’s first priority is for legal battle and they have to wait for verdict as the case is pending before the Supreme Court. The case is not standing on the merit of the application but on its maintaining ability. It is quite clear in Column 3. The Apex Court has to arrive at a decision in this regard. A decision will be taken in the All Party meeting to be held next week, he informed.
