Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections | 10.5% quota for Vanniyars permanent: Tamil Nadu Law Minister

C.Ve. Shanmugam  

Law Minister C.Ve. Shanmugam on Tuesday said that the law on internal reservation of 10.5% for Vanniakula Kshatriya was “permanent”.

Responding to an interview of AIADMK leader and Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam on the issue published on March 30 in the The Hindu, Mr. Shanmugam said, “A law is a law. There is no provisional or temporary law. A law can only be repealed only with the Assembly’s approval.”
