Published - February 24, 2023 06:42 pm IST - Salem

The Arunthathiyar Makkal Iyakkam staged a protest in front of the Collectorate here on Friday demanding the arrest of Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) chief coordinator Seeman.

Recently, during his election campaign for Erode (East) byelection, Mr. Seeman made some comments about the Arunthathiyar community. Stating that the comments were objectionable and were against the Arunthathiyar people, various Dalit outfits protested against the NTK leader.

During the protest on Friday, the Iyakkam members raised slogans against Mr. Seeman and urged the police to arrest him under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. More than 50 persons took part in the protest.
