Chennai, July 5 (BPNS)

BJP leader and party Tamil Nadu legislative party leader, Nainar Nagendran said that if Prime Minister Narendra Modi thinks, the state of Tamil Nadu can be divided into two. He was addressing a public gathering on Tuesday.

The BJP leader was responding to an address made by former Union minister and DMK leader, A. Raja urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to force his party to demand a ‘separate state’.

Nainar Nagendran said that Tamil Nadu has 234 legislators and it can be divided into two states with 117 legislators each. The BJP leader said that BJP leaders will become Chief Ministers in the south and north. He said that it will be Pandiya Nadu and Pallava Nadu and said,” Don’t think we cant do it. We are in a place where we can do it. If our PM Modi thinks, it shall be  done.”

He also said that if Raja can demand a separate state, then BJP can have a wish to divide Tamil Nadu.

The DMK slammed the statement of Nainar Nagendran and party leader TKS Elangovan accused the BJP of drunk with power.

Speaking to media persons in Chennai on Friday, Elangovan said, “ This is not in retaliation to what Raja has said. The division of state should be based on the people’s demands. This only shows that they have powers that they can misuse or abuse. This shows the mindset of the BJP.”
