Things the Indians of Hulu Selangor need to be reminded about MIC and Aiyoh! Aiyoh! Samy

Posted on April 20, 2010


“The NEP was introduced in 1970 and it came to an end in 1990. During these 20 years, promises were made by the Government assuring the Indian community that they too will benefit under the NEP. However these promises came to naught……. We had struggled to bring development to the Indian community in the last 20 years. If we cannot develop the Indian community in the next 10 years, then there is no point in us being around. It is better to close shop.” – Samy Vellu, quoted in the Tamil Nesan, 12th June, 1991.

Samy was appointed a minister in 1979.

He was part of the government from 1979 to 1990, during which time, he later lamented, the government promises to bring benefit to the Indian community came to nought.

Samy’s own admission.

Samy’s and MIC’s own failure to help the Indians.


They were too busy helping themselves.

MAIKA is a case in point. A story for another time,  and another set of questions for you to ask Kamalanathan.

Samy gave the government another 10 years to help the Indians, failing which, to quote him, it would be better for MIC to close shop.

Samy was still part of the government in those 10 years.

Hulu Selangor, ask Kamalanathan why MIC is still around?

They should have closed shop at the end of 2001.

MIC has done nothing for the Indians.

Samy did nothing for the Indians.

Palanivel represented the people of Hulu Selangor in Parliament for three terms.

Ask Kamalanathan what Palanivel did for the people of Hulu Selangor, Indians and non-Indians?

And after Kamalanathan smiles sheepishly at you after a long period of silence,  tell him to go and join PERKASA.

Tell him that the people of Hulu Selangor have no use for MIC, Samy or him.
