“We trusted him so much back in those days… we were happy with whatever we received because back then, we believed that our leader will take care of our needs,” Apparao expressed.
“For so many years he has done hardly anything to benefit the Indian community. But the younger generation will not sit back and take it any more… they will question like they did during the Hindraf mass rally,” he added.
“This is not a personal grudge against him (Samy Vellu) but it is high-time for him to give up his position to someone else more capable because the Indian community is not prospering under his guidance,” said Apparao.
Apparao Ramadumala, 50, a party loyalist of more than 30 years, was one of the afew who had gathered for the rally. He expressed utmost regret and disappointment towards Samy Vellu’s leadership.
