MIC party President Dato S Samy Vellu tries to restore the party’s popularity among Malaysian Indian by pressuring it's own party, BN. He released press statement that Barisan Nasional (BN) should do more to Indian community. Read here- Do more for Indians.
Samy Vellu wants Malaysian Indian to support MIC again; he said BN has started some efforts to uplift social and economic status. But I haven’t seen anything yet. How about you? Is it another lip service akin to frequently they do? Or anyone can tell me how they started their initiatives.
After huge defeat in the March 8 political Tsunami, I can hear the MIC rebranding workshop everywhere. But there are no clear evidences on what they are rebranding on! They are not showing honesty and seriousness to strengthen Malaysian Indian in every aspect including social, economic, education and politics.
He also said that there are 50 million allocations for Tamil schools. Until today I have not see any schools received the fund. Hope MIC not again mishandles the allocation like it happened in MAIKA Holdings and Telecom share scandals. Make sure the money reach right places! Most of the Tamil schools now are partially aided; I think MIC should have made the schools fully aided long time ago. Not now after the damages has been done.
BN/MIC knows that they are contributed too little to Malaysian Indian; 25 November 2007 (HINDRAF rally) showed that this statement is extremely undeniable. Glad to hear that Samy Vellu admitted that, but please don’t wait until next election to make empty promises again. We are awakened after more than half century of marginalization, solve all our problems immediately!
