Jobs still elude Paliyar men

July 23, 2016 12:00 am | Updated 05:59 am IST - Srivilliputtur:

The demand of Paliyar men for employment with the Department of Forest and the Department of Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments has not fulfilled.

The authorities of Sri Sundaramahalingam Temple were not considering their plea to post them as casual employees in the temple. “Our men are trained to climb up and down the hard rocky terrain with much ease. But, we are not given jobs,” Mr. Periyakaruppan said. “We have at least eight youngsters who are eligible for the post of forest watchers, with class X. Though there is vacancy in Virudhunagar district for the post, our youths are not considered,” he lamented.
