Samy Vellu, You Better Leave Now!

After being the MIC President and sole Malaysian Indian Minister for close to three decades, he had fully absorbed the anger and frustration of the Malaysian Indians at the MIC failure to check the marginalization of the Malaysian Indians by accepting full personal responsibility. But he is still going to contest for MIC top post in the next year’s party election. He will be contesting for the presidential post for the 11th time.

He said in a press statement that if he wins the party presidential elections then, it will be his last term and he will retire from active politics in 2012. Samy joined the party in 1959 and became the Youth Chief in 1971 before becoming the vice-president in 1975. He took up the acting party president in 1979 after the death of Tan Sri V Manickavasagam. He then got elected to the top post in 1981, which he held on until today.

The very fact that Samy Vellu lost his seat in Sungai Siput was evidence that people rejected him totally; he should just accept the fact that he has overstayed in the politics. The message was further amplified when he never got a "Tun" from Yang Dipertuan Agong even Gerakan’s advisor got it. It’s another obvious signal that Samy Vellu’s highly praised contribution to the society was not recognised.

Samy vellu also involved in Maika scandal which 66,000 Maika shareholder’s RM120 million Telekom shares hijacked, where nine of ten million Telekom shares allocated to Maika were diverted to three private companies. So he better escape quietly before Malaysian Indian seriously start investigating and reveal all the scandals that he did.

Hope he leaves the post and let younger members to lead MIC professionally and efficiently. He will do it if he realy cares about Malaysian Indian!

Samy Vellu has to stand and win the MIC president election. He will use his army of goons to make sure it happen. He need to continue to be MIC president to keep the lid of his evil deeds.

What else is new?
