VOC demands Velalars to be shifted in backward list from forward
The youth wing of the All India V O Chidambaram Pillai (VOC) Peravai today appealed to the candidates of all parties contesting the Lok Sabha polls to ensure that members of Velalar Community who were in the forward class list were included in backward class list. The wing also urged them to see that those who were in the backward class list be included in the most backward class.
State VOC Peravai's youth wing president R V Hariharun Pillai told mediapersons here that a resolution to this effect was adopted at the meeting.
He said the meeting also wanted that the portrait of freedom fighter V O Chidambaram Pillai popularly known as V O C be placed in all the government offices and to celebrate the VOC's birth- day as government function. If any political party came forward and gave assurance for the implementation of their demands, the members of the Peravai, Sozhiya Velalar Sasngam, and other like-minded organisations would extend their support to them in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections, he added.
