Hampers for 25 poor Indians( ref Makkal Osai 21/11/09) pg 2). But these Indians are not given any part of the RM 220 Million national budget for welfare help & E- kasih cards as in 2010 budget
These Indian poor, handicapped and senior citizens almost always are given the run around at the welfare departments until they give up or are rejected at the very counter level. All these direct and blatant discrimination can only happen in Malay-sian Prime Minister Najib Razak’s One Malay-sia. These Indian poor are so desperate that they are prepared to come and wait for a mere hamper and to collect the RM 20.00 given for adults and the RM 3.00 for the 40 children. This only goes to show the height of the Indian poor who are prepared to wait for hours for a mere RM 3.00.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of the Indian poor problems in Malaysia.
We hereby call upon the welfare Ministry to stop all further and future racial and religious based discrimination against in particular the Indian poor.
