Dalit leaders to challenge Arunthathiars Act Special Correspondent
|“It is unconstitutional on the part of the government to have framed the Act”|
CHENNAI: A forum of Dalit leaders will challenge Arunthathiars Act 2009 in the Madras High Court.
[The law provides three per cent reservation to Arunthathiars within the 18 per cent reservation available to Adi-Dravidars]
K. Krishnasamy, president of the Puthiya Tamizhagam and leader of the forum, told reporters here on Thursday that a similar law had been enacted in Andhra Pradesh, which was struck down by the Supreme Court.
In the light of these precedents, it was unconstitutional on the part of the Tamil Nadu government to have framed the Arunthathiars Act, providing quota within reservation, Dr. Krishnasamy said, referring to Vice-Chairman of the National Commission for SC, N.M. Kamble’s description of the Act as unconstitutional.‘Panjami’ lands
The forum also demanded the government release a White Paper on the status of reservation for Dalits in political, economical, social, educational and government sectors besides allocation of ‘Panjami’ lands in the State within the next three months. Within a week, the government should submit details of various projects implemented under the special component plan programme, he added.http://www.hindu.com/2010/02/26/stories/2010022660480400.htm
