    He was a towering leader: TNCC

    Congress leader P. Vallal Peruman, who won three Lok Sabha elections from Chidambaram during 1984, 1989 and 1991, died at a private hospital in the city on Tuesday morning. He was 66.

    Peruman, a loyalist of former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, also represented the Kattumannarkoil Assembly constituency during 2001-2006 on the DMK’s ‘Rising Sun’ symbol but as a member of the short-lived Congress Jananayaka Peravai, floated by Mr. Chidambaram. He was the Congress’ Chidambaram candidate in the 2016 general elections but was unsuccessful. Peruman was a medical doctor, trained at the Thanjavur Medical College.

    A condolence note from TNCC president Su. Thirunavukkarasar highlighted Peruman’s stature as a Dalit leader.

    “His loss is not only a loss to the Dalit community but to the whole State,” he added.
