For more than two decades, 66,000 Maika shareholders had been having a raw deal especially after the infamous RM120 million Maika Telekom shares hijacking scandal where nine of ten million Telekom shares allocated to Maika were diverted to three private companies. The MIC thuggery and gangsterism in the mismanagement of Maika Holdings to deny the rights of 66,000 Maika shareholders to claim their money. The Malaysian Indian intimidated and not given a proper answer until today.
Samy Velu along with his group of gangsters, robbed the Indian people of an enormous amount of money through Maika Holdings. Elected representative defying the law in acting in a thuggish, gangsterish and violent manner at a public venue. On May 13, 1992, MIC's Selangor Assemblyman for Seri Cahaya, S. Sivalingam, acted as a thug when he led an assault of Maika shareholders who were peacefully picketing against the Maika Telekoms hijacking scandal outside Maika headquarters. A woman, M. Pathmah was also assaulted and other victims were A. Sivanesan, K. Panjamurthi, K. Krishnan and S. Phulup Perumal. At the Maika AGM last year, MIC tried to silence YB Kulasegaran from championing the rights of the 66,000 Maika shareholders, he was assaulted at the event by a MIC's elected reps.
Samy vellu must explain to Malaysian Indian on the scandal and the promises that he made to return the shareholder's money. Its better if we have a healthy debate to settle the problem. YB Kulasegaran and the MIC President, must face to face to debate on this scandal. You may ask why YB Kula and not other Indian leaders? The reason is, he himself is a Maika Holdings shareholder, thus knows well about the whole scandal's plot. As a Malaysian Indian Member of Parliament (MP), he is capable of representing 66,000 Maika shareholders to argue with the MIC President Dato Seri S.Samy Vellu on this issue.

DSAI's dream to Putrajaya as new PM seems to become realistic. From the information that I received via SMS, DSAI has won the constituency more than expected. It's clearly shows that Pakatan Rakyat (PR) getting stronger in national political arena. This factor may confidence the BN MPs to defect over to Pakatan Rakyat. The first step of DSAI worked very well and now the time will tell us about the Sept 16, another important date in Malaysia's political history. If it's happen, we are going to witness the promises made by Anwar Ibrahim himself in his manifesto of March 8 General Election.

Permatang Pauh voters will be deciding on who going to represent them in the parliament tomorrow. The final hours of the campaign shows a lot of "dramas". From "sodomising" each other to the swear on the name of god, of course these issues are confusing the voters to choose their candidate. However, the power is in voters hand whether to send the Opposition stalwart to the parliament after a decade of absence or vote for Arif Shah, the Seberang Jaya current assemblyman.
Big spending BN hoping to get good feedback from the voters tomorrow. Money and groceries pours in Permatang Pauh and the voters definitely the "King Makers". Arif Shah, the BN candidate for Permatang Pauh by-election vary confident of his victory. With less than day to go before Permatang Pauh voters cast their vote, the BN candidate has a bold prediction that he can win with the majority of 500 to 5 000 votes. In the other side, with 10 days of campaign, Anwar satisfied with the support of the Permatang Pauh folks. He stated that he will win tomorrow and the victory will be the first step to the Putrajaya as future PM.
Special holiday declared by Penang government to ensure maximum voters turnout for the crucial by-election. The election actually not supposed to held on Tuesday (working day). I wonder may be there are other reasons forced Election Commission (EC) to set such date. Who knows?
Anwar is the favourite candidate to win easily in the Permatang Pauh, he held the constituency from 1982 untill convicted to corruption. Permatang Pauh voters deciding on Anwar's fate tomorrow. Hope the candidates use clean tactics in the final hours of campaign. In my early prediction, I think Anwar will retain the constituency with the majority around 25 000 votes.
