The new measure is reportedly targeting the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Konkunad is AIADMK’s stronghold. The move aims to defend the DMK government, which is in power in the state. The fact that the BJP has been trying for years to increase its influence in the region also adds to the news.
Konkunadu is one of the important districts of Tamil Nadu, including Coimbatore. The Konkanad region, which includes 10 Lok Sabha constituencies and 61 Assembly districts, includes Coimbatore, Tirupur, Erode, Namakkal, Salem, Dharmapuri, Nilgiris, Karur and Krishnagiri districts. According to the Tamil newspaper, the move is to make the Union Territory of 90 Assembly constituencies a few more constituencies in the vicinity.
Some of the recent statements made by the Tamil Nadu BJP unit and AIADMK leaders confirm the new moves. K Annamalai, a former IPS officer from Karnataka, is a native of Konkan. The Murugan, who held the ministerial position in the cabinet reshuffle of the second Modi government, is also from Konkan. The BJP leaders grant Murugan the title of Minister of Kongunadu.
