What about Dalit people in Tamil Nadu?
What about them? TN even has preferential programs for them in education and employment. Because of the number it might not be corrected over night but after having the programs for years not its almost there.
I wanted to answer earlier, but two PEELAMISTS and TRAITORS- Never Again and KUDU pimpia did not let me, first I had to answer to their garbage.
T.N may have few programs for Dalit, but where they go, walk or seek help, every where discrimination. Do you know Dalit can not ride a bicycle in some residential areas in Chennai? Dalit must get down and push it. They can not get normal services from T.N government offices or even from the police.
So, do not compare with Srilanka. I know for sure Tamils can ride a bicycle any where in Srilanka? Can't you?

As many as 171 dalit panchayat leaders in the State faced various forms of discrimination from their colleagues, revealed a study conducted by Evidence, a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) working for Dalit rights in Tamil Nadu.
According to the study, 93 Dalit panchayat leaders faced discrimination at the hands of vice-presidents of the village panchayats, while 51 leaders were ill-treated by clerks.A caste-based approach in the administration activities was used to discriminate against 145 Dalit panchayat leaders, while 104 leaders faced harassment from caste Hindus who used demeaning language against them.
Similarly, four panchayat leaders from Villupuram, Cuddalore and Dindigul districts were not allowed inside their office.
