Paattali Makkal Katchi (abbreviated as PMK) is a political party active in Tamil Nadu, India.

History[edit]

PMK was founded by S. Ramadoss, who had earlier worked with the Vanniyar Sangham founded by him in 16 July 1989. PMK has advocated the bifurcation of the state of Tamil Nadu, a proposal that was seen as a casteist line as PMK is stronger in the northern half of the TN State. It is a dominant Vanniyar party but had other communities as well[2]

Ahead of the 2004 election PMK joined the broad Tamil political front Democratic Progressive Alliance where also Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Indian National Congress, Communist Party of India, Communist Party of India (Marxist) and Indian Union Muslim League were members. PMK was able to obtain a significant share of power both in the regional government in Tamil Nadu and the central government due to significant no of seats they obtained which helped the United Progressive Alliance (UPA)-I to form the government.

Following the 2004 general election elections, PMK joined United Progressive Alliance led by Congress. In June 2008, Climaxing months of bitter relationship between DMK and PMK, the ruling Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in Tamil Nadu severed its ties with the Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK), an outside supporter of the Karunanidhi government.[3] However, the DMK did not press for the party's removal from the UPA government at the Centre.

On 26 March 2009, PMK declared that it would join the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) led front and left the United Progressive Alliance (UPA).

PMK contested 2014 Lok Sabha election in an alliance with BJP led NDA[4] and its candidate Anbumani Ramadoss won from Dharmapuri Lok Sabha constituency,where he is one of two non-ADMK mp from tamil nadu the other being from its ally BJP.[5]
