Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Sunday criticised the manner in which the central government handled the Telangana issue which has resulted in severe protests and violence in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.
Responding to a reporter's question on the central government's handling of the Telangana issue, he said: "From this, one can understand that delayed announcement and hasty decision should not be taken."
He also ruled out any division of Tamil Nadu, though some organisations have started voicing such a demand.
"The DMK party or the people of Tamil Nadu do not have any such views," he said.
Karunanidhi, who inspected the construction of the massive Anna Centenary Library here Sunday, told reporters that the library will be ready by next May.
