    It seems Dravidian parties have not been able to annihilate caste divisions.

    The Nayakars mess.The Nayakaas gave the Thevars the push up post destruction of Madurai Sultanate.They did not encourage the Pandyans residues at that time.The Thevars were again classified as criminal tribes by the british.Now again this

    Ramadoss is a crook and a pig. He is trying to get inter caste marriages banned in TN as per TOI .


    Also the dharmapuri , epicenter of the recent violence is his traditional fort. I wot be surprised if his party cadres were responsible for the violence there.

    But thankfully that pig won only 3 MLA seats out of the contested 31 seats in the last election down from 19 or so MLAs . This is a positive trend. Also the caste difference in general is fading out in here. The situation is not as bad as it is made out to be in the article, and the previous election was a testimony for that. But considering the party involved here(PMK), I won't be surprised if it is a plot by them to gain their lost vote bank across their community:hmm:

    If State wants the Citizens votes ...They create something Like Caste allocation in Jobs,offering Scholrships etc etc..



    But In Tamil Nadu a Famous Quote from Bharathiyar
    " No Castes here Children" ( saathigal Illayadi Paapa"


    Who cares..
