Dr. S. Ramadoss is the founder of the Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK), an Indian Political party.[3]

Under the leadership of Ramadoss, PMK was able to obtain a significant share of power both in the regional government in Tamil Nadu and the central government, primarily due to coalition pressures.[citation needed] Ramadoss's son, Anbumani Ramadoss, was the Health Minister in the government.

In 1980 Dr. Ramadoss founded Vanniyar sangam, a party that centralized the priorities of the Vanniyar caste. In 1987 they staged road blockade by cutting trees and demanded 20% reservation in TN government jobs for Vanniyar Communities. 21 people died during that agitation. As a result, 108 castes including Vanniyar community got 20% reservation in TN. Dr. Ramadoss founded PMK party in 1989.[citation needed]


Threatening journalists

S Ramadoss on June 2019 stoked a controversy, saying that he would “cut” journalists who question him about hundreds of trees cut down by his party workers during his arrest by the J Jayalalithaa government. He said, "if we protest again we will not cut trees but hack down those who ask these questions, and throw them across the road."[4] He also called the journalists "dogs" and "Kammanati pasanga", a degrogatory word used for the widow's son.[5][6]

Anti-Dalit campaign

On December 2012, Ramadoss initiated a controversial campaign to prevent Dalit men from marrying non-Dalit women on, especially those who belong to his own Vanniyar community. In Tamil Nadu, it has caused a stir and many political parties want action taken against Ramadoss. Ramadoss in an event in 2010, said, "Dalit men sporting jeans, t-shirts and fancy glasses lure our women into marriages that don't work." M. Karunanidhi, asked the government of the state to "act against those stirring up a caste passion" and said, It's dangerous like stepping into fire. He started this campaign after the 2012 Dharmapuri violence, where hundreds of Dalit houses were set on fire.[7][8][9]
