Senthamizhan Seeman, gathered in Madurai on 18 May 2009 to revive the party as a social outfit Naam Tamilar Iyakkam (We Tamils Movement).
On 18 May 2010, a year after the military subjugation of the Eelam Tamils and on the first anniversary of the organisation, the Naam Tamilar Iyakkam was converted into the Naam Tamilar Katchi, with Seeman the Chief Coordinator of the Party stating that the party would be an alternate political party different from the mainstream political outfits and also claiming that the establishment of an independent Tamil Eelam would be the moral goal of not just the party but Tamils in Tamil Nadu.
During the formation of the party, Seeman added that "we are not founding the Naam Tamilar party, we are continuing with what S. P. Adithanar founded.
Name and emblem
The name of the party signifies "We are Tamils", as opposed to being labelled by any caste or religion. The name also emphasizes the rule of Tamils in the Tamil homeland as opposed to the prevailing "Dravidian" and "Indian" parties that have contributed to the alleged downfall of the Tamil people.
The NTK flag has similarity to the Flag of Tamil Eelam. Tiger was also the emblem of Cholas and the Tamil Tigers. The event of introducing the flag took place at Thanjavur, the historic capital of the Cholas.
