Against Kannada forces in the border areas of Karnataka and the Belgaum-Karwar border dispute date. On 4 June 1986, I protested in Belgaum in disguise. Today marks 38 years of that. The memories of all those incidents and the movement we carried out on that occasion for the rights of Marathi brothers have been revived once again today.

After the formation of Karnataka state, hundreds of Marathi villages including Belgaum, Karwar, Nipani, Bidar, Bhalki were forced to use Kannada for many years by the Karnataka government. We have decided to oppose this hold of the Karnataka government and protest on the border issue.’

After this came to light, the Karnataka government closed all the routes coming from Maharashtra. But since I was determined to attack Belgaum at any cost, I changed my clothes and entered Belgaum via Goa. First I disguised myself as journalist Pandey and then as Dubai businessman Iqbal Sheikh. Journalist Pandey’s dress was so strange that even the then Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray and his wife Meenatai (mother) could not recognize me quickly.

After this we entered Belgaum and protested against the Karnataka government. After this we were arrested. After spending two months in Dharwad jail we were released. At this time I was accompanied by Dagdu Sakpal, Baba Pingle, Arvind Tayade, Hemant Mandlik and numerous Shiv Sainiks. Pramod Nalawade helped me in dressing up.
