Tamil Nadu Peasants and Workers Party (Tamil: தமிழ்நாடு விவசாயிகள் தொழிலாளர் கட்சி, TNPWP) is a political party in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The president of TNPWP is Pon Kumar.[1] TNPWP supported the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) for 22 years, but the alliance broke down ahead of the 2006 Tamil Nadu assembly election.[2] Instead the TNPWP aligned itself with the Samajwadi Party.[3] After the elections, TNPWP pledged support to the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK)-led Democratic Progressive Alliance government.[4][5]
