Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday said senior and experienced lawyers would be appointed to the legal team of the State to argue in the Supreme Court over the border row with Maharashtra.


“The border row between Karnataka and Maharashtra will come up for hearing in the Supreme Court on November 23. Senior and an experienced legal team will be appointed to effectively argue on behalf of Karnataka,” Bommai told reporters at the airport here.
