Hulu Selangor gimmick: If PKR comes to power all red IC holders would be given citizenship, says Selangor PKR MP mandore.

Selangor is the richest state in Selangor.
Just before the 25th November 2007 Hindraf Rally the former Selangor M.B Khir Toyo had admitted to the effect that 50, 000 even fifth and sixth generation Malaysian born Indian children had been denied their birth certificates (B.C) by UMNO.
Now the PKR led Selangor state government could have helped to undo these very serious injustices to a certain extent by forming a B.C Secretarial at the Selangor State Secretarial led by a Director, five regional managers, ten supervisors and 100 staff with the view to record, register, monitor forward and facilitate with National Registration Department and follow up and put pressure with their now 78 MPs’ in Parliament on a regular basis. This pro active measures to solve this long outstanding birth right and slated and targeted to be solved by PKR within six months is certainly a step forward.  
Even if PKR has no powers to grant the BC’s and IC’s but they would have taken a pro active stand in trying to undo the 50 year old serious injustices meted out by UMNO to these Indians. This proposal we have written and forwarded to the PKR, DAP and PAS leadership humpteen times but to no avail.
But now in view of the upcoming Hulu Selangor by elections, PKR gets their M.P mandore to do the usual MIC style wayang kulit using the Tamil newspapers that once PKR gets to Putrajaya, all Red I.C holders would be granted citizenship.
If PKR does not do their bin while they are in power in Selangor they are not likely to deliver when they get to Putrajaya. Remember politics is about (empty) promises and perceptions.
