PS from WMP - MIC leader's repeated lies "He Spoke" to Hindraf


PRESS STATEMENT 23rd August 2008


HINDRAF views with deep concern statements by MIC leader Dato Seri Samy Velu that he has “spoken to” HINDRAF leaders and that they support MIC and the Barisan Candidate in Permatang Pauh.

This is a blatant lie by Dato Samy Velu and irresponsibly made to confuse the voters in Permatang Pauh.

We challenge Samy Velu to name the leaders he has “spoken to”. We are aware there are groups that call themselves Makkal Sakti (who are proxies of MIC) and are misleading the public so it may be possible Samy Velu has spoken to these “bogus supporters” who claim to represent HINDRAF.

It is a fact that HINDRAF supporters are absent in Permatang Pauh but that is a policy matter of HINDRAF and has nothing to do with MIC. HINDRAF is an organisation that stands on its own principles and will never be dictated by any political party.

As far as HINDRAF is concerned MIC is an obsolete Political Party that does not command the support of the majority Malaysian Indians for their sins in colluding with the UMNO led Government in cheating the Malaysian Indians for 51 years. Samy Velu is seeking cheap publicity by insinuating that HINDRAF is under his arms.

HINDRAF has always sough social and equal justice for the ethnic minority Malaysian Indians and will continue to do so irrespective of who or which party rules the Country.

The Indians in Permatang Pauh are politically mature and are well aware of the political ploy by Barisan Government led by UMNO. They will never fall for Barisan’s empty promises again and look for a better Malaysia where all races are treated equally.
