Dalit outfit seeks action against Ramadoss

india Updated: Dec 22, 2012 21:11 IST

A Dalit organisation has filed a complaint with police seeking action against PMK founder leader Dr S Ramadoss for his alleged derogatory remarks against Dalit youths.

Tamil Puligal (Tamil tigers) state deputy secretary Meyappan in his complaint alleged that Ramadoss had made certain remarks about inter-caste love marriages which were defamatory in nature.

Hence the police should take action against him, he said.

Ramadoss recently launched a forum of non-Dalit caste-based outfits to campaign for amendments to SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, to prevent its misuse and "protect women against fake inter-caste marriages" and to protect the rights of other castes.
