Dravidar Viduthalai Kazhagam (DVK) is a political organization in the state of Tamil Nadu. It is a splinter group of Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam. Its policy is to bring out social reform along the lines envisaged by Periyar E. V. Ramasamy. DVK's main objective is to cleanse Tamil Nadu of Casteism and Brahminism. It was allegedly involved in a hate attack on a Brahmin priest in Chennai. Major political parties remained silent on this crime.[1]

It was founded in August 2012. The party president is Kolathur Mani and Viduthalai Rajendran is the general secretary.[2]
