Chennai: After the DMK, Congress is also in the fray against the campaign demanding the partition of Tamil Nadu. BJP Vice President N Nagendran asked why DMK was afraid of forming a new union territory called Kongu Nadu, centered in northwestern Tamil Nadu. Meanwhile, more parties demonstrated against the state partition movements.

There are rumors that there is a movement to form a new Union Territory that focuses on parts of Tamil Nadu that share a border with northern Kerala. But BJP Tamil Nadu Vice President N Nagendran questioned why DMK feared the move. He said that people wanted a change in the region and the BJP was of the opinion that this should happen. But BJP state spokesperson ANS Prasad also said there should be no undue reactions on the issue via social media.

In the past, some local organizations had come out demanding the partition of Tamil Nadu, but the campaign did not take root. The BJP’s response last year was that there was no need to divide Tamil Nadu as a developed state. But in the current situation, there are reports that there are two views within the party. Opposition groups have accused the BJP of trying to divide the state for political purposes.

Alagiri said such divisive efforts came at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself was facing opposition within the BJP. No one in Tamil Nadu has demanded the division of the state as in Andhra Pradesh. The Telangana region was lagging behind in development. But he said that the Konkunad area was developed and asked if someone would divide that area.
