How exactly did TN even get to its present economy? By importing cheap labor and cheap raw material from the north. If these states had labor rates and raw material costs much higher, TN would be at the same level as Bihar. If Punjab with its majority agriculture economy did not supply cheap wheat to TN, then TN would be forced to import expensive wheat from Ukraine and given the war, TamilIan’s would be starving like Porkis. TN is energy starved and because of central power stations like nuclear power and associated transmission investments by the center, TN is actually even able to attract manufacturing jobs.why should Tamilian or any South Indian push for development and prgress when they know that a large part of their hardwork and taxes will be enjoyed by others and not their own ?
How would Chennai or Bangalore compete with Hanoi when they gets only 30% and 14% back from the center and the same has to be redistributed among the entire state popln.
This argument that taxes from the south go to the north is really a false argument as TN gets a lot of cheap stuff from the north which it would not get if TN was a separate country. The central government heavily subsidizes a lot of the inputs that go into TN’s production and services. Simply talking about taxes alone is a fake argument.
