Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has reconstituted a committee to finalise the state’s stand on its dispute with Karnataka over around 800 villages along their border.

The 8-member committee, headed by the CM, comprises NCP chief Sharad Pawar, senior activist N D Patil, Shiv Sena leader Subhash Desai and PWD Minister Chandrakant Patil of the BJP. Leaders of opposition in State Legislature will also be part of the panel.
