Que Sera Sera is a French phrase meaning, whatever will be, will be. This is an old song by Connie Francis. For Samy this words are handy, whatever will be, will be but I will bring out ideas by the bucket full, some old, not effective now, some new yet not tested, but being the President, I have to motivate the Indians whatever will be, will be.


The untested slogan is, bring in the 250,000 Indians, who are not voters, I will give them something and they will vote Barisan Nasional. A very catchy slogan other MIC leaders could not think of, and that is why Samy Vellu remains forever, slogan after slogan, the last was I think the 7 issues, but before it sees the light of day another beauty.


But down to earth, the 630,000 members of MIC do not toe the line of the President, they are disgruntled and they are going to be the downfall of MIC in the elections. Please President pay more attention to them. When you have this big group, why the 250,000 others who don’t agree with and are not members of MIC, is there any meaning?

The Indians are smarter now. Que Sera Sera Sami.    

IPOH: The MIC will go all out to woo the more than 250,000 Indians who are not members of the party to vote for Barisan Nasional, its president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said.

He said party members have been working continuously to identify the voters, and brief them.

“We have 630,000 members, of which 65% are voters. We are confident they will support MIC candidates and Barisan,” he told reporters after submitting his nomination papers to contest the Sungai Siput parliamentary seat here yesterday.

The 71-year-old Samy Vellu, who is also the Works Minister, will be facing Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) candidate Dr Michael Jeyakumar Devaraj, who is contesting on a PKR ticket, and Independent Nor Rizan Oon.

In the 2004 general election, which also saw a three-way fight, Samy Vellu defeated Jeyakumar by 10,235 votes. DAP’s Sanmugam Ponmugam Ponnan was the third contender for the seat.

On whether he was confident of a bigger majority this time, Samy Vellu said that even a win with a single vote was a victory.

“When I contested for the first time in 1974, I got a majority of only 626 votes. I worked hard and tried to meet the wishes of the electorate, and increased the majority in the next general election,” he said.

Samy Vellu said the number of candidates fighting for the seat was not important but that attention should be given to the preparations undertaken by Barisan to win the full support of voters.

On MIC’s chances of securing another 100% win in the nine parliamentary and 19 state seats it was contesting, he said a lot of hard work had to be done in three difficult constituencies – Lunas (Kedah), Prai and Bagan Dalam (Penang).

He said he would lead MIC’s elected representatives on a state-by-state visit to find out the problems on the ground after the elections.
