A separate homeland for the Tamils holds tremendous attraction for the Dravidian parties and Tamil extremists.
That dreamland is to be carved out of Tamil Nadu and the Tamil-speaking areas of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Sri Lanka.
Tamil would be the only language there. And Tamil nationalism, the only cause.
