Chennai:  (NDTV: Feb. 27, 2021)

Minutes before the Election Commission announced the poll schedule for five states, including Tamil Nadu, yesterday, the state Assembly cleared 10.5% reservation for the Vanniyar community in educational institutions and in the appointment of posts in government services. What was not reported then is that the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhakam (AIADMK) also sealed a poll deal with the Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK), a party with strong roots in the community that the legislators had just favoured.

>>> What a shame -- the political parties and politicians in India still using the caste or ancient family label for quotas / reservations in education and jobs to win votes in elections in the 21st century!
