Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami on Thursday announced trifurcating the large Vellore district into three and asserted his government's commitment to the two-language formula.

In his Independence Day address after unfurling the tricolour at the Fort St George here, Palaniswami said dividing Vellore district was following consideration of representations from Ministers, MLAs and the general public.

Two new districts with Ranipet and Tirupattur as headquarters respectively will be carved out from Vellore and K V Kuppam in Vellore district will be upgraded into a new taluk, he said.

Vellore will continue to function as a separate district. Palaniswami had recently announced new districts of Chengelpet and Tenkasi and with the two new districts, Tamil Nadu is set to have a total of 37 districts.

Quoting late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, he expressed his government's commitment to the two-language formula of Tamil and English. This is the third time Palaniswami is hoisting the national flag as Chief Minister.
