Home Minister declines to meet police shooting victim

No PTPN loans for the Indian medical students in Russia, Ukraine, India, Indonesia, Romania, etc or even at MIC’s AIMST University and all the private

Despite Malaysia suffering from a shortage of about 50% of medical doctors (UM 8/10/09 at page 24) UMNO refuses to grant PTPTN loans to the aforesaid minority Malaysian Indian students just to keep the number of Indian doctors down in Malaysia. UMNO in turn has “imported” muslim doctors from Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, etc. UMNO rather let the foreign exchange flow out of the country, why don’t the government give the PTPTN loans to these private Indian students? This is how racist, religious extremist and supremacist the UMNO regime still is but in One Malay-sia!

RM 6.76 Billion investments in Selangor in 278 projects. But Indians still marginalized under PKR led Selangor govt.

From the 278 projects, 182 are new projects, says Teresa Kok the Exco Member for Investments Industries and Trade (Sinar 25/2/10 at page S3). 59.2% are foreign investors and 40.8% are local investors. Of the local investors we estimate a mere 1% of these investors to be Indians. Why is it difficult to be more transparent and provide more details on who are the local investors?

But despite this wealth and Selangor being the richest state in Malaysia , nothing or very little has been done for the Selangor Indians.

For example the immediate past UMNO Menteri Besar of Selangor Khir Toyo just before the March 8th 2008 General Elections had announced that in Selangor alone there are an estimated 50,000 Indian children without birth certificates. Is the present menteri besar aware of this?

In these two years of PKR led P.R state government in Selangor a department could have been set up at the state Secretariat with a Director, ten Executives, 20 managers and 100 staff to identify, process, liaise, follow up with the National Registration Department officials get and ensure that all these 50,000 Indian children get their birth certificates so that they can go to school, get study loans and scholarships, legally get married, open up businesses, buy a car, motorcycle, lorry and licences to earn a living, open bank accounts, etc. All this is now not possible simply because UMNO has denied these third, forth and even fifth generation Indian children their lawful and legimate elementary birth certificates. This kind of atrocities does not happen in any other part of the world.

But what has this PKR led P.R Selangor State government done to undo the injustices of the previous UMNO regime? Why is Anwar Ibrahim’s PKR a non starter in so far as the Indian problems concerned.

Why is it that this Investments, Industries and Trade portfolio not given to an Indian Adun? Why is lawyer M. Manoharan not qualified to hold that post, and why does PKR, DAP and also PAS follow UMNO’s footsteps and give the Labour, Estate Workers and Welfare Exco post to their head hung low Indian Exco mandores? If that is the case, why not appoint a malay to be the exco for paddy fields, and a chinese to be the exco for tin mines?

Thinking out of the box, why not two Indian Exco posts for Indians?

Why are key Exco positions grabbed by the Malay and Chinese in PKR, DAP and PAS, which otherwise claim to be multi racial?

What then is the difference between UMNO and PKR, DAP and PAS?



PKR Kedah MP mandores lies- No land title for Henrita hindu temple

After reading this morning’s Malaysia Nanban (11/02/2010 at page 4), we called the Padang Serai reporter Mr. M. S. Maniam who honestly confirmed that he personally did not see the land title to the said Hindu temple but was told so by the said Kedah PKR MP mandore.

We politely told him that the sub headlines reads “ Henreta Estate temple gets land title. The reporter promised to get back to us with the telephone number of the temple Vice President Mr Thesigam for our verification but has not done so.

Hundreds if not thousands of such Hindu temples are falsely given the impression especially through the Tamil papers that their Hindu temples have been given titles, but in reality they have not. They know the truth only when the bulldozers come to tear down their temples. But then it would be too late.

Yayasan Basmi Kemiskinan (Melayu) gets 2,139 acres land from Selangor. Zero for Indians poor.

The Permodalan Yayasan Basmi Kemiskinan (melayu) (PYBK) gets 866 hectres (2,139 acres) of land to be developed. PYBK has also mortgaged to the Bank land worth more than RM 100 Million (NST 25/2/2010 at page 4). That indicates the value of land allocated.

But the present PKR led Pakatan Rakyat Selangor State government has allocated zero acres of land to the poor and underprivileged Indians in Selangor.

This PKR led state government for a start can grant 1,000 acres of land to 1,000 handcore poor and underprivileged Indians in Selangor and help them set up the modern hydrophonic and cattle and goat farming. This will help alienate hardcore poverty for at least 1,000 hardcore poor Indians in Selangor.

Why not? Why has this not been done?

If not, what then is the difference between UMNO and PKR and P.R.?

DAP Councillor: Flats for poor (Indians) sold to senior MBPJ senior officers.

Poor Indians from Selangor in particular Kampong Lindungan, Lembah Subang and Shah Alam have been denied the low cost flats due to them (Refer NST, Star 25/02/2010 at page S2 and M2). The poor Indians of Kg Lindungan (Kg Medan) for instance have been waiting for 16 long years for a low cost flats and are now told to relocate for the third time from two previous longhouses. Thousands of poor Indians in Selangor are homeless. And now the bombshell is dropped that Senior Petaling Jaya City Council Officers have bought the low cost flats meant in particular the poor Indians.

What has the PKR led Selangor government done for the poor and homeless Indians in Selangor in their two years of rulling Selangor. Time is ticking. PKR and PR only has another two years before the next general elections
