Samy Vellu’s Own Battle….

Ex-MIC Youth Chief S.A. Vigneswaran said that all the battles that MIC had fought over the years with so many Indian leaders were not the party’s battles but Samy Vellu’s own.

Vigneswaran also advised MIC president to leave and prove that he can survive without MIC or bury MIC.

Meanwhile, our dearest MIC president declared that he wont be leaving MIC and his position. He also added that his position is not decided by MIC Youth. (Did you all aware of it our young MIC followers?).

The best part of this story is, Samy Vellu saying that the resignation of Youth Chief was to give way for the younger generation to serve the party.

He also adding by saying that, “There are alot of Young graduates who want to help the party but cannot do so as others are holding the post of Youth Chief for too long”.

What a funny and stupid statement…. He really want young generation to lead the party, but he wont give up his position…

Where MIC is heading?

I really hope and pray to god, that you will lose in next presidential election Mr Samy…

That day will be a day that all Indian in Malaysia remember and celebrate… You will see it…

Malaysiakini: “Samy hasn’t done anything…”


“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.

New building for Tamil School? Its just another Political Card, believe it

pakguard84

 

According to Malaysiakini report, Samy Vellu said that MIC is the only party that representing the Indians interests in the cabinet.

In that report, he also talking loud about Tamil schools. According to the report, they started to building seven Tamil Schools and going to repair around 40 Tamils School nationwide.

Thats a good news… But, my concern is, what happen to various Tamil school that in serious condition such as SRJK(T) Azad Penang? SRJK(T) Ladang Nagappa Jementah, Segamat? And the Contena School in Gelugor, Penang(Subramani Barathiar Tamil School)?

I just curios, what happened to this schools? As i noticed, these schools is not listed in the report.

For readers information, SRJK(T) Ladang Nagappa Jementah is the school that my father studied and he is 45 years old now. The relocation of that school has been pending for 13 years. Leaders come and go, lots of promises, but nothing has change, the school still there. Students number decreasing year by year because of the distance (estimated around 6-7 kilometres from town). Parents prefer to let their children study in Malay School or Chinese school. We cannot blame them, despite the distance, the school building conditions also worsening day by day.

13 years of waiting, Indian community in Jementah still hoping that MIC will do something… Will it happen before something happen to the students?

Another School is SRJK(T) Azad, Penang. I’ve been there twice. First time i saw a school located underneath of a building.

They call it a school, but its look like a jail for me. If you not believe me, go and see yourself.

The school is underneath Penang Indian Association Building. (Unfortunately i don have the school picture)

And Subramani Barathi School in Gelugor Penang, they called it Contena School. Because contena is the classroom. They said going to rebuild the school, but i dont know what happenned next.

My point is, can MIC represent Malaysian Indian in this kind of School matters first?  Tamil School is losing their students everyday. It wont be shocking if one day no Tamil School in Malaysia.

For those who called themselves as Indian Representative/leaders,  please put your political agenda aside and work for your community sincerely!

Your press conferences and statistic doesnt mean anything when the situation is the same.

Samy, you don’t need to ask the world for help

 

Mogan Sivas | May 6, 08 4:44pm 

I refer to the Malaysiakini report ‘Samy Vellu ordered temple demolition’.

So here we go. Khir says Samy asked to demolish the temple. Samy says Khir did it on his own. Saravanan says of Khir: ‘He was arrogant and didn’t bother to listen to anyone’. To Khir, Samy, Saravanan et al , do you all think many of us seriously care who said what to whom? We are tired and sick of you lot in the BN as demonstrated by our service of notice to you lot during the recent general elections. We further seriously think that you boys from Umno and MIC truly deserve each other. 

Then we read this: Samy to Khir, ‘You are not only destroying your political career, you will also destroy my political career if you continue with the demolition’. Now this is a remarkable statement from a seasoned politician who is more concerned in protecting his own skin than that of the greater interests of the community he purportedly champions. And here are we left thinking that good old Samy is a selfless politician. Yeah, right I can see pigs flying!

Saravanan also says that the demolition of the Shah Alam temple was among the main reasons why BN lost Selangor in the March 8 general election. You’re wrong on that count, Mr Saravanan! BN lost because BN has become very irrelevant and arrogant and MIC, even more so (remember Mr Samy’s boast that not even an army could defeat him in the elections? Hmmm!)

And if you want proof of the irrelevance, allow me spell it out for the MIC even if it is blindingly obvious. 

Despite being a senior partner in the ruling BN government, MIC could not do a simple act of averting the destruction of an age-old temple. This is just one minuscule example of MIC’s impotence in today’s BN brand of Malaysia. Even the ‘mighty’ Samy’s apparent plea to the PM and DPM felt on deaf ears. Why do you think MIC has lost the influence it thinks it always had? The reason – Umno perhaps thinks that the MIC is a jerk. Umno thinks MIC is only a supporting act and a poodle to BN. Umno thinks that the MIC members and the community (with full Malaysian citizen rights ) are second class citizens. 

Umno thinks that they can do without MIC or the PPP ( as explicitly spelt out by a high ranking Umno official Ali Rustam at one of the AGMs ). Now to the root question – why do Umno and the BN think that we are lesser citizens than the ‘Malay’ Malaysian. You know what? We don’t really need Umno to tell us why we are inferior citizens. 

MIC is doing a damn good job by itself without any help from our adversaries by fashioning us as inferior, by fashioning itself as a migrant/ minority political party, by alluding to us as inferior. MIC has done a damn good job in the last 50 years by compromising our Malaysian identity with an Indian identity, by readily trading our inalienable rights as full Malaysian citizens with third-rate citizenship, by accepting the small scraps that are thrown at us by the ruling BN government – like the BN’s offer of one full minister and couple of deputy ministers in government which is thrown in to keep the MIC boys and girls happy. 

Perhaps MIC is content with Tamil schools thrown here and there. Perhaps MIC is happy political patronage like ‘datuk-ships’ thrown here and there. Okay, okay, MIC might not be overly ecstatic with their marriage made in heaven to BN but they are nevertheless a happy lot of sorts, otherwise why is MIC still sleeping with BN after all these years of humiliation?

I have urged MIC, in the past and will continue to do so, to disband itself and get rid of the tribal mentality by fashioning itself as ‘Indian’. Don’t get me wrong, I am proud of my roots but it does not help our equal rights cause when you are fashioning yourself as ‘Indian’ on a political platform. Samy now says if BN doesn’t play ball with MIC, he will go abroad for help. Mr Samy, I have news for you. 

You don’t need to go anywhere around the world for help. The answer is at your doorstep. Just get your MPs and members to walk across to one of the Pakatan’s component non-racial parties. If MIC cannot be relevant as part of the ruling BN government today, I cannot for the life of me see what hope is there that they will be relevant on the opposition benches as Muppets in the very near future.
