PKR Selangor and P.R refuse to resolve Estate Workers Housing scheme.

This 52 year old estate workers housing scheme by UMNO was never seriously implemented. For 50 years UMNO was doing wayang kulit on this scheme.

But for the malay muslim poor housing cum plantation ten acre land owner ship schemes in Felda, Felcra, Risda, Fama, Agropolitan, Kejora Kesedar etc. 99.9% of the pre existing Indian plantation workers were excluded from these land ownership schemes.

And now the Selangor PKR Indian EXCO mandore in continuing with the MIC mandores tradition puts up a wayang kulit in the Tamil press and tells the poor Indians some new stories and excuses on the reason why the Dusun Durian Estate workers housing scheme cannot be solved. (Tamil Nesan 4th Februari 2010 at page 14 & Makkal Osai 4th Februari 2010 at page 9).

We gave up on UMNO and asked the Indians to vote for PKR, DAP and PAS who are more or less playing the very same mandore politics with Indians as very clearly seen in this case.

We want a solution at the state levels in PAS, DAP and PKR ruled states of Kedah, Penang and Selangor. It is coming to it two years since they have come to power. Why have the Menteri Besars and chief Minister of these three states not implemented the Estate Workers Housing Scheme in these three states. After all land in these states are 100% in the control of these Menteri Besars and Chief Minister.

We want an urgent wholesome and permanent solution to the problem and not piecemeal one by one and full of excuses wayang kulit politics through the PKR, DAP and PAS Indian Exco, DCM II and other mandores as very clearly seen with this Selangor PKR Indian Exco Mandore.
