Dalit organisations to support AIADMK

January 31, 2004 14:15 IST

A confederation of pro-All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam dalit organisations on Saturday decided to continue its support to the Jalalalithaa-led party in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The confederation met in Chennai and decided to meet Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and seek allotment of a seat for the confederation in the polls.

The confederation's members said the previous Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam government had acted against dalit interests.

The confederation had supported AIADMK in the last three general elections.

Those who attended the meeting included A Packiaraj, founder, Makkal Desam Katchi; Nungai V Babu, president, Ambedkar Peoples' Front; S Anbinpoiyahmozhi, convenor, SC/ST Students Confederation; and Salem P Shenguttuvan, president, Tamil Nadu Arundathiyars Forum.
