Bombay Karnataka


Bombay Karnataka, formerly part of the Bombay Presidency under the British rule, has played a significant role in the formation of the state government in the last 4 elections including two Lok Sabha elections. Bombay Karnataka comprises the present day districts of Belgaum, Dharwar, Bijapur, Haveri, Gadag, Bagalkot, and Karwar(North Kanara).

Historical Background

After the annexation of Peshwa Territories under the British rule in 1818, the Krishna-Tungabhadra doab became a part of the erstwhile British India. The northern region in the present-day Karnataka, fell under the administrative and judicial jurisdiction of Bombay Presidency. The 326-km-long region, had a predominance of the Kannada culture, but after becoming a part of the Bombay Presidency Marathi became the official language for the Kannada community of the Bombay Karnataka region. India gained Independence from the British imperial forces in the year 1947, and in the year 1953, the Central government constituted a State Reorganisation Commission. The commission was formed to take into consideration the cultural and linguistic values before reorganising and forming new states. In 1956, after State Reorganisation Commission submitted its recommendation, the central government approved the formation of new states including the state of Mysore. The Bombay Karnataka and four other regions, which were part of different Princely states or British Presidencies, became the state of Mysore. The dominance of Kannada identity in these regions was taken into consideration for the formation of the new state. The state of Mysore was later renamed Karnataka in 1973.

Political Scenario

The region of Bombay Karnataka is dominated by the Lingayats community, former leaders like J H Patel, Ramakrishna Hegde, and former Chief Minister of the state S R Bommai, have dominated the political scene in the region. Bombay Karnataka was once considered a Janata Dal(S) bastion, but with the collapse of JD(S) in the state, Bombay Karnataka region has become a BJP bastion with many JD(S) leaders switching their alliance to join BJP, especially in the last 4 elections including the General Assembly elections in 2009 and 2014. In the 2008 state assembly elections, the BJP managed a comprehensive victory on the 16 seats out of the 18 seats in the region. The party achieved a similar feat in the 2009 General Assembly elections by adding one more seat to their 2008 assembly elections tally. The Congress party under the leadership of Siddaramaiah and division of fraction within party, saw BJP win only 4 seats, but reunited BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections won 16 out 18 seats. Karnataka BJP State President B S Yeddyurappa, along with other regional leaders, has played an important role in gaining electoral ground in the region.

Issues pertaining to the region

Mahadayi river issue and frequent droughts in the region have affected and agitated the farmers in the Bombay Karnataka region. Mahadayi river issue is a problem of water sharing among the states of Goa, Karnataka, and Maharashtra, the river originates from the hills of Bhimgad Wildlife Sanctuary. Mahadayi river travels downward for 22 km within the state of Karnataka before entering Goa, where the river is considered as lifeline. The Karnataka government wants to divert the upstream water to the drought-prone region of Bombay Karnataka, the farmers have protested on several occasions, but no conclusive actions has been meted out by the state government.
