Dalit outfit to support parties backing demands of Arunthathiyars

The Adi Thamizhar Peravai (ATP), a Dalit outfit, has said that it will support political parties that accept the immediate demands of Arunthathiyars and highlight them in their manifestos, in the Assembly elections. Addressing a press conference after its State executive council meeting here on Tuesday, R. Adhiyaman, founder president, ATP, said that the organisation had a significant presence in western and central districts. “We expect seats for Arunthathiyars in eight reserved constituencies. If any of the major parties fail to give seats, the Peravai will field its own candidates.”
