MTD was founded on August 22, 2000. MTD has its base amongst the Yadav caste in the southern parts of the state. The Tamil Nadu Yadava Mahasabai supported the formation of the party. The party leader is S. Kannappan, a former All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) minister. Kannappan had been expelled from AIADMK before the foundation of MTD.

Ahead of the 2001 Tamil Nadu assembly elections MTD joined the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

On May 6, 2002, the Pondicherry unit of MTD broke away and joined Indian National Congress.

In the 2004 MTD took part in the People's Alliance, the third front in Tamil Nadu together with Janata Dal , Puthiya Tamizhagam and the Dalit Panthers of India.
