Fact Check:

It is not so easy for the BJP to say that we will change the name to Tamil Nadu, knowing that it will face numerous opposition. Looking at the 2021 election manifesto released by the Tamil Nadu BJP, no such announcement was made.

While researching the online poster of the BJP going viral on the official Twitter page of the Tamil Nadu BJP, we came across a poster with the same photo and color based on agriculture.

In it, “Agriculture and the welfare of farmers. A separate budget for agriculture, interest-free crop loans, and a Standing Committee on Pricing for commodities will be set up under the Public Works Department of the Government of Tamil Nadu to set up an ‘Agricultural Irrigation Department’.

Based on this, it is possible to know that they are spreading rumors in Photoshop that the name of Tamil Nadu will be changed in the photo of the promise made by the Tamil Nadu BJP.


In our search, we came to know that the photo and the post claimed to be announced by the Tamil Nadu BJP in its election promise to change the name of Tamil Nadu to “Dakshina Pradesh” in the national language is a fake photoshopped image.
