Members of the Dalit Liberation Movement of Tamil Nadu held a demonstration in Chennai on Thursday, demanding the ouster of the principal of the Tamil Nadu Theological Seminary (TTS) in Madurai. The principal has been accused of sexual harassment and favouritism and the issue has been running for two years.

The demonstrators also protested against the role of Devasahayam, the bishop of CSI’s powerful Madras Diocese, who is also the chairman of the TTS.

S Karuppiah, general secretary, Dalit Liberation Movement, said his organisation had been struggling against the bishop to have the principal removed.
