BENGALURU: Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti on Friday said it would conduct another ‘Mahamelava’ (a huge convention) of pro-Maharashtrians on the first day of the Karnataka Legislative Sessions to be held here from November 21.

Speaking to media, after applying for permission from the district administration and the police department, former independent legislator Manohar Kinekar said on the first day of the state government’s winter sessions in Belagavi since 2006, the samiti is holding a gathering of pro-Maharashtrians.

The Samiti had organised a ‘Black Day’ rally as a counter to the Rajyotsava celebrations.

The parallel convention is being conducted to highlight pro-Maharashtrians’ disagreement over conducting the sessions and is said to continue till the border dispute was settled.

However, Kinekar had no reply when he was asked to handover the miscreants involved in the incidents.

MES which has applied for permission to conduct the convention said that it would go ahead with the convention even if it doesn’t get the permission. The Samiti has also added that many politicians from Maharashtra would be invited for the event. Meanwhile, the state government is expected to give a ‘conditional permission’ to conduct the gathering at the last minute.
