The hundreds of thousands of poor, underprivileged and landless Indians further compounded by their denial to equal opportunity to education has created them as the underclass under UMNOs’ racist, religious extremist and supremacist policies. From the new underclass UMNO intends to create for the country a pool of unskilled general workers, factory workers, toilet cleaners, security guards, office boys, Alam Flora workers (90% of the Alam Flora workers in K.L are Indians) and the other dirty jobs.
Thus UMNO intentionally and maliciously excludes about 70% of the 2.2 Million Malaysian Indians from the national mainstream development of Malaysia.
The latest example as reported in today’s Star, 16/3/2010, at page N21, of Indians being excluded from the national mainstream development of Malaysia in the Federal Agriculture Marketing Authority’s (FAMA) RM1 billion National Food (Production) Terminal (Teman) in Simpang Pulai, near Ipoh. This project is to benefit 6,000 (Malay muslim) farmers and as almost always the poor and landless Indians are excluded (refer The Star 16/3/2010 at page N21). At best a Wayang Kulit of one or two Indian families about (0.001%) would be paraded in the 3 Tamil newspapers and the mainstream media to showcase the Indian poor participation in line with the Malay proverb “ayam telur sebiji rioh sekampong”.
The poor and unskilled and suffering on a day to day basis. Indians could instantly be taken out of poverty in this and the scores of other ten acre land ownership schemes in Felda, Felcra, Risda, Mardi, Agropolitan, Kesedar, Ketengah etc., simply by their proportionate inclusion.
But UMNO intends to retain this 70% of the Indians in the poor and hardcore poor category, and silently watch by if not aided and abetted by omission by the PKR, DAP and PAS top leadership and their 82 MPs’ (minus five) including their 11 Indian mandore MPs’.
