Dear Sir,

Re: Indian poor : RM 20 billion Motion in all five PKR, DAP and PAS State Assemblies.

We refer to the Motion passed at the Penang State Assembly that the UMNO controlled Federal Malaysian Government either continues with the monorail ,PORR and expansion of the Mengkuang damp or pay the Penang State Government RM 4.7 billion in compensation (NST 31/07/08, Pg 26).

In view of the very serious and critical issues faced by the Malaysian Indian community under 50 years of the neo colonialist UMNO rule, we hereby demand that all the five PKR,DAP and PAS controlled state governments of Kedah, Penang, Perak, Selangor and Kelantan pass a motion endorsing Hindraf’s 18 point demands to Prime Minister Badawi dated 12/08/07 and demanding that the UMNO controlled Federal Government fulfils the wishes and aspirations of the almost two (2) million especially poor and under privileged Indians contained in this 18 point demands in particular but not limited to the RM20 billion per year allocation for this community. We enclose herewith our said 18 Point Demands dated 12/08/07 once again for your easy reference.

May we bring to your kind attention that within a period of the one crucial month RM 34.57 Billion (Utusan Malaysia 26/06/08, Pg. 8 and NST 20/06/08, Pg. 4 and Utusan 30/06/08, Pg.8 ) had been allocated for Sabah alone which also has about 2 million people like the about 2 million Indian population in Peninsula Malaysia. The difference is there has been zero allocation for the poor and underprivileged Indians. After all the Indians are only asking for RM 20 billion which is less than the allocation for Sabah (34.57 billion).

This your goodselves motion would go a long way in helping to alleviate the very serious and long standing critical Indian issues faced by the Indian community in Malaysia.

Your kind indulgence in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Yours faithfully,
