A massive controversy has erupted in Tamil Nadu following the governor’s remarks suggesting the state should be called ‘Thamizhagam’. In response, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) workers took umbrage with the hashtag #TamilNadu on Twitter. He said the following at an event at Raj Bhavan: “Tamil Nadu is the land that embodies Bharat. It is the identity of Bharat, or Thamizhagam as I prefer to call it.”
Annamalai clarified that the controversy was “without any productive outcome”, and he disapproved of the decision by the Raj Bhavan to issue Pongal invitations without the state emblem.
During a recent interview with Tamil news channel Thanti TV, Annamalai said that Tamil Nadu and Tamizhagam share a “similar spirit” as well as that the BJP does not support changing the state’s name.
Tamil Nadu and Tamizhagam have been the subject of unnecessary controversy. It was unlikely that the controversy would lead to any positive outcomes,” Annamalai said. The BJP leader responded that Ravi might have been mistaken also in making the suggestion that sparked the row.
Annamalai explained that Ravi was referring to certain “divisive forces” in his comment, and that the name change idea was only “a suggestion”. If you ask if Annamalai will accept the proposal, he replied, “No.” The Governor was merely making a suggestion; it does not have to be accepted by everyone.”
Some DMK leaders, however, continue to invoke debate about the old demand for an independent state. In a recent interview, DMK leader A Raja expressed that the reasons for seeking a separate state still exist. There are still some leaders and IT wing members of the DMK who make such random statements.”
A governor’s comment sparks a dispute
A DMK member of parliament and treasurer of the party, TR Balu, has criticized RN Ravi for acting as a “second state president of the BJP“. A controversial comment by Governor RN Ravi is made every day by him to cause confusion, separation, and conflict. ‘Dravidian politics has cheated people for five decades,’ said the governor. ” His speech was highly condemnable since it should have come from the BJP state headquarters Kamalalayam and not Raj Bhavan.”
He said the Tamil Nadu Governor urged everyone to identify themselves as Indians. It is very welcome that one feels a sense of unity as an Indian. In any case, the governor ought to ask questions about the religious politics of Varnasanam and Sanathanam that stand in opposition to that unity.
