Dr Krishnasamy, the founder of the Puthiya Tamilagam (PT), said that if people decide to convert, they should give up their Scheduled Caste identity. He said he agrees with the views of the movie 'Rudra Thandavam' on SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and 'crypto-christians'.

Talking about the alleged presence of 'crypto-Christians' within the SC community, he said, "People should convert to Christianity if they believe in the faith and not for reservation benefits. If they decide to convert, they should give up their SC identity. Our party's demand is to remove the Devendra Kula Vellalars from the SC list," said Krishnasamy. When asked why he opposed the Kamal Haasan movie – 'Sandiyar', Krishnasamy said he had only raised concerns about the movie's possible negative impact on society.
