Hulu S’gor: HRP deemed the stumbling block for PR for speaking up for poor Indians. Indian mandore reporters and internet writers used to undermine HRP struggle.

Hulu S’gor: HRP deemed the stumbling block for PR for speaking up for poor Indians. Indian mandore reporters and internet writers used to undermine HRP struggle.

In the aftermath and the dust settles after the Hulu Selangor by elections, we are getting SMSes, calls and feedback that HRP could and would have made a difference to PR winning the Hulu Selangor by elections. Yes, we could have easily swayed at least that 863 votes so that PKR would have won by one vote.

A thousand mile journey begins with a single step. When Anwar Ibrahim refuses to grant even the basic necessity of Tamil school land for all the 98 Tamil Schools land in Selangor, which in turn would have forced UMNO to grant them fully financial aid status how are we to support PKR and PR? We cannot be the blind supporters that PKR, DAP and PAS wants us to be, like how the MIC mandores have been for UMNO for 53 years, or how PR’s 11 Indian MPs and the 15 ADUN mandores are doing now.

HULU SELANGORAnd now PKR, DAP and PAS in the interest or political expediency expects HRP to support their party line and also abandon these critical Indian problems which HRP will not.

HRP means business. HRP will speak up without fear or favour, for especially the Indian poor, as there seem to be no takers for their pain, suffering and degeneration.

Who speaks for the poor Indians? UMNO? Or PKR, DAP or PAS?

None! So if HRP also abandons these critical Indian problems and opt to play to the majoritarian Chinese, Malay and Native gallery, at least 70% of the Indians within the next ten years would be reduced into destitution in Malaysia, which is already in the making today.

PKR, DAP and PAS in their zest to get to Putrajaya are almost wholly sidestepping the critical Indian problems, beginning from the three west coast states they are ruling.

We are not prepared for UMNO to be replaced by the PKR led clone of UMNO. We want to move parallel with PKR, DAP and PAS’ intended ascent to Putrajaya.

HRP will be the check and balance for PR vis a vis the critical Indian problems when they get to Putrajaya.

PR is trying to tell us not to pursue the critical Indian problems until they get to Putrajaya. And then PR will, ala UMNO, ask for another 50 years to put the Indians back on track.

Why can’t solving the basic necessity and critical Indian problems be more parellel with P.R’s ambitions to Putrajaya? This would go a long way in displaying sincerity to the critical Indian problems.

As it stands PR is only showing their zest in the Indian votes, but not resolving their issues.

PR is now getting alternative media writers to undermine HRP.

Several Indian writers, journalists, NGO activists, etc., perhaps suffering from minority complex syndrome or inferiority complex, almost wholly sidestep the real and critical Indian problems. They would rather play to the gallery and cari makan or not take the risk of being branded a racist. This aforesaid group collectively has probably written about 1% of the critical Indian problems we highlight here on a day to day basis.

In their supposed hidden multi-racial agenda to dilute the Indian critical problems they often write that there are also poor orang Asli, poor Malays and poor Iban and Kadazan. But they have never replied to our explanation that the poor Malays, orang Asli, Kadazan and Iban have their social safety net of their traditional villages and ancestral villages, plus the privileges as bumiputras. The sky is the limit for them to earn a living by engaging agricultural activities, animal and poultry farming. But this option is no way available to the Indian poor. Even Jeffrey Kitingan and other east Malaysian leaders concede that the native east Malaysians are better off than the Indian poor.

The truth is that the Indian issues have emerged so critical and in a condemned state of affairs, so much so that these Indian writers, mandores and their tuans and towkays in PKR, DAP and PAS have conveniently chosen to abandon them.

There is a Tamil proverb that if one cannot be of any help, one should not be stumbling block (in this HRP struggle). Just as how HRP was never a stumbling block for PR in the Hulu Selangor by elections.
