The BJP has promised to rename Tamil Nadu as Dakshina Pradesh.

A morphed image falsely claims that BJP will rename Tamil Nadu as Dakshina Pradesh.

A morphed image falsely claims that BJP will rename Tamil Nadu as Dakshina Pradesh.Tamil Nadu assembly elections were held on April 6, 2021. Amid the elections, a viral picture claimed that the BJP's manifesto promised to change Tamil Nadu's name to Dakshina Pradesh so that the state can gain recognition. Another similar image stated that the name would be changed to Nitchala Pradesh.

The Tamil Nadu BJP made no such announcement in its manifesto, released on March 22, 2021. It promised to provide jobs and measures to improve farmer's conditions. The party has promised 50 lakh new jobs and home delivery of ration.

Further, the party clarified that the posters were not printed or pasted by them and could have been the handjob of political opponents as part of propaganda. Moreover, the party had used the word Tamil Nadu in its posters. The image's background is also the same as that of a poster related to Agriculture tweeted by the BJP. Thus, we say that this claim of the BJP promising to rename Tamil Nadu is fake.
