Samy Vellu To 'Hit The Road' To Solve Problems Faced By Indians. Too Little Too Late Sam!
"I am going to go from place to place and shoot down any problems the Indians may be facing," he told reporters after opening the newly-refurbished Pagoh rest area on the North-South Expressway (southbound) near here today.
Samy Vellu, who is also Works Minister, said he needed do this to counter baseless allegations made by the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf), a non- registered organisation, about the party.
He said the MIC had identified those who had taken part in the illegal assembly organised by Hindraf in the federal capital recently and that these people would be provided with the appropriate counselling.
"We will clarify matters with them. We have already done so in Penang, Kulim and Teluk Intan and will go to all the places where the Hindraf followers are," he said, adding that yesterday such a session was held in Mantin with a group which sent some 250 people to the Hindraf rally.
The group, he said, claimed that they were dissatisfied with the government for not keeping a promise made 36 years ago to resolve their housing problems in Mak Mandin, Penang.
Samy Vellu said he would approach Penang Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon to try and resolve the matter.
"When they get their houses, their problem is solved," he said.
On remarks by Public Service Department director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam that Indians were not keen on jobs in the public sector, Samy Vellu said that this was not correct as his feedback showed thousands of Indians had applied to join the civil service last year.
"I will be raising this up with the Cabinet," he said. (Bernama)
***** Dear Sam, it would be purposeless for you to 'hit the road' at your age and especially with your current rock bottom credibility. There is every chance that you may at some point in your 'traversing the country' be hit instead by a stray tomato or rotten egg.
Your brave statement that you will "go from place to place and shoot down any problems" might not be exactly what the emergency room doctor ordered. There seems to be a 'Samy Vellu open season' fever going around right now. I'm sure you must have had a taste of it at Penang recently. Why push your luck and get metaphorically shot down instead?
By the way from what I gather from the above report, you have still not learnt your lessons. For example you along with your Tuan2 in Umno still persist in terming Hindraf's genuine demands which have found resonance around the world as baseless allegations. It is indeed the height of obstinacy and a clear symptom of the uniquely Malaysian ruling politician's affliction of 'missing the wood for the trees'.
Of course your Tuan2 in Umno are more lucky as they have been catering for their people and 'fattening them for the kill' at the next general election or at least that's what they think. But you have lead your flock down the path of poverty and the only fate awaiting you is a slaughter at the polls. Yet you so foolishly overrate your powers of survival by thinking that you can talk and buy your way out of oblivion. Do you think that the problems of some people in Penang will be solved 'when they get their houses'? They may get their houses, but you don't seem to get it about the sorry state that you are truly in at the moment.
And one more thing, Sam. For heaven's sake stop giving that same old, "I will be raising this up with the Cabinet" bluster. No one is impressed with this kind of talk and frankly very few people even believe you anymore.
