New political party

The Tamizhaga Telungar Orunginaippu Kuzhu has floated a new political party Bharathiya Dravida Makkal Katchi. Talking to newsmen here on Tuesday, its president, P. Muthuvelrajan, said that despite a substantial number of Telugu-speaking people living in the State, they did not get political recognition and due representation in government jobs and higher education. "This is the case of people belonging to many castes in the State," Dr. Muthuvelrajan said. The party would be registered with the Election Commission. It would contest in 125 Assembly constituencies in the ensuing election to the State Assembly. The party's first political conference would be held in Madurai in February, he added.
