Samy Vellu had all along been very defensive and always mantained that there are no problems between the Government and the Indian community.
Even after the Hindraf demonstration, the Works Minister still refused to accept the fact that there are problems need to be sorted out between MIC, hence the Government, and the Malaysian Indian community.
The latest denial was when he claimed more than one million Indian devotees had visited temples, a proof that Malaysian Indians did not boycot the 2008 Thaipusam celebration at .
So far so good… he has been consistent with his denial syndrom, right? Wrong!Malaysiakini latest report:
Now, according to him, suddenly there are seven critical issues that have caused uneasiness among the Indian community and the government must immediately take steps to address them.The seven are:
1. an equitable participation in the share market;
2. Indian intake in public universities;
3. better employment opportunities, especially in the public sector;
4. increase the number of government scholarships;
5. greater access to entrepreneurship training and micro-credit loans;
6. an effective urban poverty eradication programme; and.
7. the establishment of a dedicated mechanism to monitor and evaluate the delivery of public sector services in a just and fair manner.
8. When is he going to resign?????
How pathetic??? and a very sick man who calls himself a leader.
28 years, and now he is telling to the indian community that indians face critical issues. He has created a gangsterism community and he is the father of all gangsters.
MIC president , in listing out these seven grouses, urged the government to resolve these issues immediately as they have hindered the party’s efforts to ensure the upward mobility of the Indians, Bernama reported.
“The Indians have very high expectations and are demanding from MIC greater inclusion, access and their rights in the socio-economic development on par with the other communities,” he said at the MIC special convention for branch chairmen at the Putra World Trade Centre today.
So now Samy Vellu admitted there problems after all.
What happened to all the developments programs and the money the BN had allocated to the Indian community development programs before?
Who did you distribute the money to?
Can Samy Vellu be considered as ‘biadap’ when he had been saying there are no problems all along and suddenly list seven issues for the Government to resolve immediately?
Pak Lah, tell Samy Vellu to step down

I refer to the Malaysiakini report Anybody but Samy? No says activist.
I have read Malaysiakini reports regarding the Indian community after the Hindraf rally on Nov 25. Well, I would like to inform you that all the blame should be pointed to one individual.
I would like to state here that the majority of the Indian community are disgusted with the leadership of MIC president because despite not doing much for the Indian community during his 29-year tenure, he still insisted that he remain the supreme leader for the Indian community. He said he ‘needed more time’ to uplift the Indian community’s status.
I think Samy Vellu has no self-dignity to make such remarks. The marginalisation of the Indian community would have not occurred if Samy Vellu had placed the Indian community above himself and honesty, service and sacrifice above greed.
The dilemma facing the Indian community will continue as long as it is led by Samy Vellu, because the Indian community’s trust in him is a total failure.
Maika Holdings wiped out millions of dollars – the hard-earned savings of thousands of poor Indians. Investors were left clinging to the valueless Maika shares, their dreams and aspirations destroyed forever. But Samy Vellu planned to sell the Maika shares, worth RM127 million, to a bumiputera company overnight. Luckily, a court order was filed to stop the sale of the shares.
Samy Vellu's asserts that the three percent equity for the Indians had been on the national agenda for a long time. But nothing had been implemented for the community, and the failure to reach that equity level lies wholly with him because he failed to demand it from the government.
On the Tamil school issue, Samy Vellu failed to provide Tamil schools with the same (or equal) facilities granted to other (Malay and Chinese) schools. Facilities at most Tamil schools are very poor and the conditions are very pathetic.
Despite this, he arrogantly stated that he had already spoken to the government to allocate funds for Tamil schools. On Hindu temples, Samy Vellu boldly stated that these temples were in the way of development and had to be demolished. We accept his remarks but no alternative land was allocated and gazetted as Hindu temple reserve land and no funds were granted for the relocation
Samy Vellu claims that the temples demolished were re-sited, but he cannot furnish any documented proof of land or funds granted for these re-sited temples. This is so because the temples that were demolished were not to be rebuilt. He can't cheat the Indian community anymore. Enough is enough.
Samy Vellu has failed miserably in all capacities – he never has had and never will have the ability to restore the Indian community’s dignity in .
So, on behalf of Indians, we want the honourable prime minister to ask Samy Vellu to step down and make way for another Indian leader who can work toward the betterment of the Indian community in - now and for future generations.
