Chennai, Oct 10 (BPNS)

The ultra-Tamil nationalist movement Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) is planning widespread protests across Tamil Nadu for the retrieval of Panchami lands for the Dalits.

Party founder leader, actor turned director, Seeman told BPNS that the protests would be against the usurping of Panchami lands that 12 lakh acres of land for the Dalit communities of Madras was sanctioned by the British.

Seeman told BPNS,” Where has that 12 lakh acres of Dalit land donated by the British for the Dalit communities of Tamil Nadu gone.”

The fiery leader also said that successive Dravidian governments of Tamil Nadu were responsible for the Panchami lands of the Dalit communities being lost.

He said that massive protests would be continued across the state and he himself would address each meeting against the usurping of Dalit lands during the successive Dravidian social justice parties ruling the state.

Seeman also said that he wanted to know about the present situation of the committees set up by successive governments to study the loss of Dalit lands.

A senior leader of the party told BPNS that the NTK has started focusing on issues and will not take up general issues.

It may be noted that the NTK and Seeman are against the second airport in Chennai coming up at Parandur.
