Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday made it clear that the geographically huge Belagavi district would have to be divided.“Some or other time, Belagavi district will have to be divided. I will take a call on the issue with local leaders,” the Chief Minister told the Legislative Assembly.

The huge district, which has 11 taluks, missed the division process during the regime of J.H. Patel as there was no unanimity on whether the new district should be Gokak or Chikkodi, Mr. Siddaramaiah recalled.
