Maratha king Shivaji was 'Kannadiga', claims Karnataka Deputy CM

Slamming Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackrey for raking up the inter-state border row, Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Govind Karjol on Sunday claimed that the Maratha king Chhatrapti Shivaji was a 'Kannadiga'. "Thackrey does not know the history. Shivaji's forefather Belliyappa was a Kannadiga from Soratur in Karnataka's Gadag district. When drought struck Gadag, he (Belliyappa) migrated to Maharashtra, and Shivaji was the fourth generation of his family," Karjol told reporters in Karnataka's Belagavi.
