  • More than half-a-dozen Congress leaders on Wednesday strongly opposed the State government’s decision to bifurcate Ballari district claiming that the division will lead to conflict between Telugu-speaking and Kannada-speaking people.
  • The creation of Vijayanagara district would lead to division of revenue and contribution from Vijayanagara would be less than that of Ballari.
  • Smaller districts such as Bagalkot and Koppal have not developed after division and division of the district was not the criteria for development.
