BJP’s Tamil Nadu President, K. Annamalai on Friday said that the BJP is not for a separate Kongu Nadu and that the party has sought an explanation from party leaders in the state’s western districts who had passed such a resolution.

The BJP leader was speaking to reporters after assuming office as the state President at the state headquarters “Kamalalayam”.

Annamalai, who is a former IPS officer from the Karnataka cadre, also said that the Tamil Nadu unit of the BJP is totally opposed to the construction of the Mekedatu dam across the Cauvery river by Karnataka.

He also said that NEET will bring up social justice for the students of Tamil Nadu and that the party would campaign in all the villages of the state to convince the people on this.

Union Minister L. Murugan, who Annamalai replaced as Tamil Nadu chief after his induction in the Modi ministry, and BJP national General Secretary C.T. Ravi, who is the Tamil Nadu in charge, were present among other leaders on the occasion.
