Pillay was a Minority Front councillor for fifteen years before infighting in that party after the death of longstanding leader Amichand Rajbansi led him to break away and form the DLC.[1]

The party opposes affirmative action and land expropriation without compensation, and is in favour of austerity measures for government and simplifying business.[2]
