PKR Mandore “solving” peanuts 10 B.C cases

Just before the March 8th 2008 general elections, the immediate past UMNO Menteri Besar of Selangor announced that 50,000 Indian children in Selangor do not have (have been denied) their birth certificates.

Within one month of coming to power the new PKR Selangor Menteri Besar announced RM 100 million and 1,000 acres of land in Sepang for pig farming. But this PKR Menteri Besar has refused to alienate land to all 98 Tamil schools in Selangor for a start, let alone all Hindu temples, crematoriums, Indian Settlements, land for the poor and landless Indians to rear cows and goats which was never done in UMNOs’ 50 year rule of Selangor, and now two years under the PKR rule. Is PKR saying pig farming gets priority over allocation of land for schools?

Getting to the point, this new PKR Selangor state government have been urged by HRP to set up a special Unit in the Selangor state Secretariat to undertake the task of ensuring Birth Certificates are given to all these 50,000 Indian children within a targeted six month timeframe, using the services of one executive director, five managers for five zones in Selangor, twenty supervisors and 100 full time staff to go full steam to get this job done as scheduled.

Why not this project “Selangor Sifar Dinafi B.C” when there has previously been “Selangor Sifar Setinggan 2010” project?

When Anwar Ibrahim’s PKR led Selangor state government together with DAP and PAS refuses to address this very critical Indian problem, they get their Indian MP, Exco and ADUN mandores to do a one by one Wyang Kulit paper politics in the tamil newspapers, Birth Certificate (B.C) and Identity Cards (I.C) giving ceremonies, to keep themselves “politically alive and afloat” within the Indian community. And in the case this Indian MP mandore advertising nine Indian children and one adult having been given their BC and IC. Wow! Bravo!

But what about the balance of the 49,991 Indian children being denied their Birth Certificates? Even going by this ten B.C. cases assuming even in every week, it would take another 104.1 years to solve the existing B.C being denied by UMNO cases What more the scores of new cases escalating on a day to day basis!

We need a serious, comprehensive and permanent solution to address these injustices which only requires the political will of Anwar Ibrahim, Lim Kit Siang and Hadi Awang. As opposed to the present MIC mandore of UMNO style of politics by these Indian mandore PKR MPs, Excos’ and ADUNs.

If not, how then is PKR, DAP and PAS any different from the 53 year old fascist UMNO regime vis a vis the critical Malaysian Indian problems, let alone the other problems.?
