Today's Kongunadu is politically weak though economically strong resulting in exploitation by outsiders. The region ruled by these kingdoms was known as the land of the Gangas (Kongus), by the last dynasty where native Gounders ruled, the language Gangee Tamil (Kongu Tamil) (Wilkins, History of Mysore) is spoken here. The information we get about these three states is mainly based on Tamil literature also called the 'Sangam literature'*1 and Kongudesarajakkal.

I guess above said reasons are non-realistic and gives more emphasis on Gounders, rather than broader humanity.As per reports Erode/Comibatore/Tirupur are more richer than any other places in TamilNadu and there is no vaild reason to create a seperate Kongu Nadu. What ever move towards KonguNadu is a pure political move by powerful Gounders in the area who talks tales of Cheras and Cholas who ruled the whole southern country 2000 years ago and same has no relevance to local population in recent years.

Dr.The Maurya Emperor, Asoka’s mention of two groups of people, the Kerala-putras and Satya-putras and refer to them as falling outside his territory and this would show they were in the Chera-Kongu region well before third cent. BCE. The earliest available Tamil literature ascribable to the beginning of the Current era, mentions a number these sub-castes like Korrantai, Sattantai, Kannantai, Antuvan, Vannakkan and others, that show they were already well settled in this region long before that time. The earliest reference to generations of Chera kings are found in the Kongu Country at Pugalur (Arnattar-malai ). Their Capital was the modern Karur which was well within the Kongu country. by R.

kongu Vellalars(Gounders), a high/dominant caste[edit]

The History of ancient Kongunadu is linked invariably to the history of Kongu Vellalars(Gounders), a high/dominant caste of Tamil feudal lords and landlords.

Chera Nadu IS NOT Kongu Nadu; or vice versa[edit]

I am sorry but what IDIOT has confused Chera and Kongu Nadu? They are different. While as the citations show the Cheras did come from Kongu. But Chera Nadu is what is today Kerala. If you want citations for this go see Kerala. Its an obvious fact for anyone with the slightest clue about Tamil history. So I am going to clarify this.--Avedeus (talk) 13:51, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

this does not have any inclusion of caste like gounders or others..!![edit]

The main reason behind the raising proposal of new kongu nadu region is that..

  • negligence of infrastructure development towards kongu nadu.
  • high yielding income is not used for this region people.
  • all announced projects were cancelled and no new projects were designed. especially in metropolis like coimbatore.
  • no special attention is given to this region.
  • people's demand is on increase whereas nothing is granted by government of tamil nadu.
  • major city coimbatore has no projects and proposed remains proposed or cancelled.

eg: metro /mono rail project, gandhipuram three tier bridge, world class university,semmozhi park,other bridges,ring roads,extension of airport, etc....,

  • power cuts upto 12-16 hours whereas chennai has a one hour power cut.
  • nearly 45% of income of tamil nadu is poured out by kongu nadu and none return back.
  • salem being a corporation has worst road transportation infrastructure .

so kindly showing some interest towards this region may reject this proposal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.241.76.57 (talk) 16:21, 22 April 2013 (UTC) Barathss (talk) 16:34, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
