The Dravidian parties are treating Sri Lankan repatriates as “second-class citizens”, BJP Tamil Nadu president K. Annamalai said at a protest staged in Gudalur on Sunday against the hand-over of TANTEA land to the Forest Department.
Mr. Annamalai said the government had issued an order handing over 5,315 acres of TANTEA land to the Forest Department. “While the Dravidian parties are treating Sri Lankan Tamils as second-class citizens, the Prime Minister is building 60,000 houses for the Tamils in Sri Lanka,” he said. He called on the State government to hand over TANTEA to the Centre.
