All of us know that the Police are there to protect the safety of the citizens, and the present claim by our new Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein to increase the force by 60,000 members, may sound logical, not to forget the 60,000 wataniah in 5 years time as announced by Ahmad Zahid Hamidi. So, more and more security personnel. But, why the heck does crime increase in Malaysia. Very simple the Police don’t do their job. Increase members and bloat up the population when crime-fighting goes to the dogs.

Ministry To Ensure Implementation Of Police Five-year Plan

BENTONG, April 16 (Bernama) — The Home Ministry will ensure the smooth implementation of the Royal Malaysia Police’s five-year plan, especially in terms of recruitment, Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said.

He said that the plan to increase the number of personnel by 60,000, however, would not be met if effort was not supported by sufficient infrastructure.

"This is important to ensure that their welfare is taken care of so that they can concentrate on discharging their duties," he told reporters after attending the ground-breaking ceremony for the Public Order Training Centre by the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah, in Pelangai near here Thursday.

Hishammuddin also said that it was important to continue with the construction of police infrastructure, especially training centres, despite the global economic slowdown.

He said the government would not compromise on the issue of the country’s security, peace and order.

Whatever Samy Vellu says must be taken with a pinch of salt. I just can’t imagine a leader, who can twist and turn, any issue, claiming that this is done for the Indians. He has taken for a ride the Indians for the last 30 years, starting from the year 1979, surely he can give the Indians some repose, the Indians can and will take care of themselves. No Samy won’t do that, his ego is beyond accepting that he has done zilch for the Indians. He might have helped individuals, like Chitrakala, the defeated candidate Ganesan in Bukit Selambau, but these are peanuts compared to what help he got in the way trying to champion the Indian cause. Being the sole Indian representative, what the Government gave was channeled through him, and being a typical Indian lover, he soiled his hands and grabbed the icing and by the time it got to the roots every other fellow under him has partaken a bit of the cake. Crumbs were of course left. One has to just recollect the ordeal of the land for the Effingham Tamil School. There are others, and simply put one gets depressed trying to name his unholy actions against the Indians.

Anyhow back to the point, today he is talking of a portal on May 14, that is a month from now, a portal to interact with others. This is not the first time he wants to go hi-tech. At one stage he wanted a build a separate extension to the present MIC building and it was going to be the brains for people’s support and complaints. That came to nought. I searched my postings on the sayings of Samy Vellu, and game across this one. https://aarvidi.wordpress.com/2008/05/25/samy-the-computer-man/
Have a laugh. Samy the IT man, who uses the computer like he uses the Indians.

Any how the MIC web page is still under construction for how long, God only knows.

Guiltily, I ask myself can anything good come out from Samy Vellu, besides his shooting off the cuff without being worried; others can think, and don’t fall under the category of his 630,000 MIC members who sorry to say, have been hit again and again and are now immune to what Samy does.

They are the one the Indians must help, and I can say, these abused people must get a lot of help before their parade as ordinary citizens.

No Intention To Withdraw MIC Minister From Cabinet – Samy Vellu

He also said that the party would launch a portal on May 14 to enable the people, both from among supporters of the party and those from the opposition, to interact with the party on issues.

It is good that our Inspector General Of Police is concerned of public order, and the people are happy of his assurance. But what about the news of  Utusan Malaysia two days back, which blatantly upped the uneasiness of the people by headlining  “Bangkitlah Melayu”. Even our beloved Prime Minister, Najib had no say about the sensational headline, which does not contribute to 1Malaysia. So IGP, are you going to act against the Utusan Malaysia. Be fair and don’t have double standards.

IGP Warns Against Making Seditious Remarks

KUALA LUMPUR, April 15 (Bernama) — The police will not compromise with any group that goes against the law by creating upheaval or issuing statements which can disrupt public order.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said the statement could cause confusion and threaten national security and public order.
He was commenting on a Harakah Daily report quoting PAS secretary-general Datuk Kamaruddin Jaafar as saying that Malaysians would resort to street demonstrations like the red shirted protestors in Pattaya if the Perak State Assembly was not dissolved.
"The police will come down hard on those who make such remarks. They are deemed seditious.
"We will investigate those who had made and written such remarks. We have to check on the matter before taking any action," Musa said when contacted tonight.
— BERNAMA

Do you believe this compulsive liar. If he had known the Government was not listening, what did he do – still waited for crumbs to fall down which he deliciously swallowed. He had no good qualities, to be a leade,r but with tough-handed policies bulldozed all the members (630,000) and made them suckers. Anyhow the MIC fools deserve it, but what about the Indian not affiliated with the party.

Mahathir said Samy never raised questions on the plight of Indians, and now with the recordings, he has in his possession, tell us what he did. Is he frightened he will be bundled out under ISA.

What a liar.

Samy: MIC to remain in Najib’s cabinet

RK Anand | Apr 16, 09 1:16pm

Samy Vellu was also asked if MIC had been sidelined and the current scenario was a reflection of the party not having any clout in the ruling coalition.

Denying that the party had lost its influence, the MIC president was confident that his party could survive even “for the next 100 years” if it was sidelined.

“We have the strength to do this,” he said, adding that MIC’s only concern was the woes faced by the Indian community in Malaysia.

According to Samy Vellu, the government had dragged its feet in responding to the issues raised, as a result of which the community had turned its back on the ruling coalition.

“I was in the cabinet for 29 years. I dare say that I was the longest serving minister in the world.

“But whenever I brought up issues (concerning the community), the response (from the government) was slow and we lost their support,” he said, expressing hope that things would be different under the new leadership.

RTM blackout on T’ganu revolt

State-owned RTM blacked out news regarding the apparent boycott by 10 Terengganu state representatives of the state assembly sitting yesterday.

Though the issue was made headlines in every other primetime private news broadcast, there was no mention of the matter during RTM’s TV1 Tamil (7.30pm), Mandarin (8pm), local news (8.30pm) and main Malay (9pm) news broadcast last night.

Delivering his speech on ‘Policy, Politics and the New Media – A New Way Forward’ at the MPI Press Awards Night on April 6 – just three days after becoming the new prime minister, Najib said:

“The media best serves the public interest when it goes beyond the superficial; when it asks the tough questions of the rumour mongers; when it does not lend credence to false innuendo and instead reports on facts and details – whether that is helpful to the government or not.”

Thank God Ong Tee Keat feels it is alright to speak what is in one’s mind. Every Tom, Dick and Harry can say what he thinks is right, but this “ungrateful”statement does not come from an ordinary citizen, but from the Deputy Prime Minister, who by rank is the second most powerful man in the government hierarchy. It will be sad day for Ong if he feels to ignore any directive from the number two, saying he is free to speak his mind, and continue to be part of the government albeit his contribution which is miniscule compared with UMNO leaders.

Come on man, have a better defence, to show your leadership qualities, and call a spade a spade. Whether you agree or not, the damage is done, and the DPM has shown his true colours and the way he looks at others who don’t support the government. Have you anything further to add than this imbecile comment. Think.  

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/index.php/malaysia/23397-muhyiddin-has-right-to-speak-mind-doesnt-mean-i-agree–ong

KUALA LUMPUR, April 15 — MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had the right to speak his mind on why he thought Barisan Nasional (BN) was defeated in the two recent by-elections.

However, Ong, who is Transport Minister, added: “That doesn’t mean I agree with his statement that the Chinese were ungrateful.”

In the recent by-elections, BN was defeated in both the Bukit Gantang parliamentary seat and Bukit Selambau state seat but was victorious in the Batang Ai state seat.

“I wish to reiterate that in the spirit of democracy and freedom of speech, everyone is entitled to his or her own views. I agree that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has the right to speak his mind on why he thinks BN was defeated in the two recent by-elections,” said Ong.

He said, to him, it was the BN’s obligation to help the people, whether during campaigning or otherwise.

“As I said in my blog posting yesterday, the issue of being grateful does not arise at all,” he said in a statement posted on his blog http://www.ongteekeat.net today.

Ong said: “Today, many newspapers and Internet portals have highlighted the deputy prime minister’s remarks which mentioned my name. I have clarified my stance on the subject matter in a blog posting yesterday.”

Muhyiddin was reported to have said that he had talked to Ong about the matter and the latter had told him there was nothing wrong with his statement.

“I will not allow myself to fall into the trap set by individuals bent on using me to pit a particular community against certain national leaders. My main priority now is to win back the people’s support for BN come the next general election,” said Ong.

“Such support will not come just because we dish out election goodies at the eleventh hour, but rather it involves a long process of winning back the people’s confidence and goodwill,” he added.

Muhyiddin has since denied calling the Chinese ungrateful, and instead urged the media not to manipulate his statements and deliberately raise issues to make the people angry at him. — Bernama

Does this new team of PM and the DPM really know what is happening in Terengganu, or are they listening to one sided stories and thus make contradictory statements. Najib is with the Menteri Besar and Muhyiddin is with the 10 rebel UMNO state assemblymen. These different concepts do not auger well for a new government, and it is best these two discuss matters before issuing statements and not shoot off the cuff. The old saying goes you cannot have two masters, and our new leaders is hoped will mind their language. Muhyiddin has already blundered with ungrateful and unappreciative ways of looking at things. I hope this stops here.

Najib orders T’ganu BN reps to attend sitting

Rahmah Ghazali | Apr 14, 09 2:11pm

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak today ordered all Barisan Nasional state representatives in Terengganu to attend the state assembly sitting tomorrow.

MCPX

He also said that the threatening SMSes sent out to three BN state representatives warning them against moving a vote of no confidence against Menteri Besar Ahmad Said did not come from the MB’s office.
Najib, who is also the Umno president, said there were no moves at all to remove Ahmad as the menteri besar by any of the state’s BN representatives.
najib first sixth pm speech 040409 03The prime minister’s stand however appeared to be in contradictory to his deputy’s.
Earlier today, Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin appeared to back the action of the 10 rebel Umno state assemblypersons who ‘boycotted’ the Terengganu assembly sitting today.
“Boycott? No, they did not attend,” he said when asked by journalists to comment on the rebel state representatives who are believed to be involved in a conspiracy to oust Menteri Besar Ahmad Said.
“The aduns (state assemblypersons) have the right not to attend to the assembly,” said Muhyiddin.
muhyiddin yassin interview 100309 01According to Muhyiddin, by not attending the assembly sitting, the 10 did not threaten the position of ruling BN coalition as it has a sizable majority in the state.
Of the 32 seats in the state assembly, BN controlled 24 while opposition has eight seats.
However, Muhyiddin conceded that he had a meeting with some of the ‘missing’ representatives.
“I haven’t got the latest report. I met them (the state representatives) a few days back,” said Muhyiddin.
“The matter is of concern to me as Umno deputy president and to the PM as party president. We don’t want to see problems growing over there. We have to resolve the issues.”
When asked about Ahmad’s performance as menteri besar over the past one year, he said: “Well, he’s the MB. He does what he’s supposed to do. Beyond being MB, there could be other issues that need to be addressed.”
Muhyiddin also said that he will be meeting Ahmad soon to find out on what’s happening in the state.

This is what the dictionary says about being ungrateful, and unappreciative. It means simply, I give you something and you must be grateful, thankful, show appreciation etc etc.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin should take some lessons in political double-talk if he is to do well as the Deputy Prime Minister. Why do these UMNO chaps always get caught using inappropriate language. Do they not realise the comments are sieved with a fine tooth comb and any degrading remarks will receive wide publicity. Will they ever mind their words.

By Neville Spykerman

PUTRAJAYA, April 15 – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today lashed out at the Chinese vernacular press for “twisting” his words and portraying him in a bad light.

He denied calling the Chinese ungrateful. The DPM claimed what he had said was that the Chinese were unappreciative.

The deputy prime minister denied he had used the word “ungrateful” to describe the community in the wake of the ruling party’s defeat in the Bukit Gantang by-election in an interview published on Sunday in Mingguan Malaysia.

“If they don’t know Malay, we can send them to school,” said Muhyiddin, who is also the new education minister.

The interview published on Sunday was translated in the Chinese press and there had been widespread backlash from the community with politicians from MCA , Gerakan and DAP united in their criticism against the “ungrateful” remark.

“What I actually said was that the community looked as if it didn’t appreciate Barisan Nasional despite its best efforts during the by-election.”

Muhyiddin said he was only giving his assessment of the by-election in which BN lost further support from the community but claimed his statement was taken out of context.

He said non-Malay support had declined by a further 50 per cent in Bukit Gantang and he was speaking in the context of trying to understand the reason.

Muhyiddin also denied his statement was reflective of the Chinese sentiment throughout the country adding no analysis has been done to support such a claim.

He was speaking to the press today after receiving the handover of the education ministry from Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussin.

I don’t think so The Malaysian Insider would comment that Samy Vellu is annoyed, without proof, and that he was not brought in through the back door to be made a Minister. He feels since Koh Tsu Koon benefited by this back door advantage he should be given the same privilege. Both are defeated candidates not wanted by the people. Najib did a mistake by making a precedence of bringing in discards especially of those who are not in UMNO. Imagine Parliament being made up of discards brought in by the backdoor, and as things go, the number may increase from 6 to more. Funny democracy we have in this country. At least the Koh Tsu Koon chap does not carry visible unwanted baggage, but Samy, his name has been tarred and feathered, and even his own MIC chaps are revealing things to reporters without a tinge of guilt, as they are aware Samy’s time is up. I am sure Najib knows this. Next Kayveas may start some nonsense like this.

Samy wants to be in, but Sothinathan, why is Palanivel not given this chance. Next Samy may consider Vel Paari, give him some post in MIC and hang your tongue out for backdoor entrance to power.

Samy wants to sue, but it is not known whether he may want to follow up his threat, the writer I am sure has enough evidence of some of his own MIC people turning traitors. Why is Samy worried about Kohilan Pillai, is he not another Indian, who requires his support.

By Baradan Kuppusamy

KUALA LUMPUR, April 11 — Embattled MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, whose wish to return to the Cabinet was rejected by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, is playing his final gambit by threatening to withdraw the sole MIC minister.

The Malaysian Insider understands Samy Vellu has little support except from party vice-president S. Sothinathan in this gambit which was sparked after Najib rejected all hints last week to make Samy Vellu a senator and put him back into the Cabinet as works minister.

Samy Vellu complained to his supporters that if Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon could be made a senator and minister, he should have been accorded the same privilege.

Samy Vellu is also unhappy that Selangor Gerakan chief A. Kohilan Pillay has been made a deputy foreign minister, a high-profile post for an Indian.

He feels it should have been given to one of his nominees.

After failing to get himself re-appointed, Samy Vellu tried to propose two additional deputy ministers posts for Sothinathan and Senator Loga Chitrakalla, according to MIC sources.

The sources said a close aide of Samy Vellu had leaked the story that Samy Vellu was considering pulling out Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam and deputy ministers Datuk S.K. Devamany and Datuk M. Saravanan, to put pressure on Najib to give additional positions in the Cabinet.

The leaked story is said to be timed for the MIC central working committee meeting on Thursday where Samy Vellu has two choices — to work up his loyalists into making a “do or die” stand over the issue or deny the leaked stories and walk away from the issue.

MIC leaders are divided on whether he will carry out the threat.

“Except for Sothinathan, Samy Vellu is alone in this gambit,” said a senior MIC leader. “He has been asked to wrap up and hand over power in the party by mid-year and that has upset him. He wants to put his man as deputy and serve his three-year term as president before handing over.”

"Najib has told him not a day longer than necessary," the sources said. "This is the real spark for the rebellion against Najib."

Samy Vellu, who seriously believes he can make a comeback, was elected president for an 11th term last month and wants to complete the three-year term before handing over to a yet unnamed successor.

The Malaysian Insider understands from aides that the party’s government representatives were shocked and perplexed by the threat.

Samy Vellu’s plan to pull the ministers out of the Cabinet but keep the MIC in the Barisan Nasional coalition, party insiders said, is a scheme hatched out of emotional disappointment with the Cabinet outcome.

“What is the rationale for pulling out of the Cabinet but remaining in the Barisan? If he pulls out of the Cabinet, then MIC must also pull out of the various state executive councils in the country,” the MIC leader said.

Former MIC vice-president Datuk M. Muthupalaniappan, when contacted by The Malaysian Insider, said he takes the threat seriously.

“It is not advisable to pull out of the Cabinet because we will be rendered blind on how the government is thinking and the decisions that are being made,” he said.

“It will be a great disadvantage to the Indian community,” he said.

Another former MIC leader said on condition of anonymity that there would be stiff resistance to the idea at Thursday’s CWC meeting.

“This is one matter Samy Vellu cannot carry through,” he said. “There is too much fear and self interest involved. They will not allow Samy Vellu to carry out this threat.”

But other MIC leaders said a desperate Samy Vellu is capable of even pulling out of the BN and joining the Pakatan Rakyat.

The last case was Kugan, and now it is Adi Anwar Mansor. Adi is reported to have drunk paint thinner and was also found with injuries apparently suffered under Police detention in Klang. He is supposed to have consumed the liquid which was on the table. This is telling grandmother to suck eggs. What would a paint thinner bottle be doing at the table for questioning meant for investigation purposes.

Get ready for another Kugan episode to be revealed. The Police love to be in the limelight always.

Thinner-drinking detainee: Family seeks answers

Andrew Ong | Apr 10, 09 6:15pm

The family of Adi Anwar Mansor, 23, wants the police to explain how he had allegedly drank paint thinner and sustained injuries while he was held under police custody.
According to the family’s lawyer, N Surendan, there were doubts over the police’s account of the incident as there were injuries on Adi Anwar’s body.
adi anwar mansor thinner police 100409"The story that he consumed thinner is pretty thin. The police have to explain where the injuries came from," said Surendran, adding that a letter has been submitted to Klang district police chief Mohamad Mat Yusop to seek clarification.
The letter also urged the police to immediately suspend any police officers suspected of hurting Adi Anwar pending investigations by an independent body.
Adi Anwar is currently semi-conscious and is under observation at the intensive care unit of the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang.
Mohamad was quoted in the media today as saying that Adi Anwar was arrested for alleged drug possession at about 11.30pm on Tuesday in Jalan Kebun.
The police chief had said that Anwar was near a table at the police station and reached for a bottle containing the poisonous liquid and consumed it before police officers could stop him.
On the injuries sustained by Adi Anwar, Mohamad was reported to have said it could have occurred during the scuffle when he was apprehended.
Don’t cuff unconscious man
Mohamad stated that the man was being probed under Section 39(A) of the Dangerous Drugs Act for possession of 44 grams of cannabis.
The report also quoted Adi Anwar’s sister Noraila, 21, who claimed that her brother sustained lacerations and bruises to his head.
Meanwhile, Surendran said that he would be meeting the Klang police tomorrow to secure the release of Adi Anwar from police custody in order for the family to seek treatment.
hindraf to palace 250408 n surendranSurendran also criticised the police for handcuffing the detainee to the bed despite him being semi-conscious.
"There is no need to handcuff him. He is not going anywhere in that condition," he said.
PKR Youth vice-chief Khairul Annuar Zainudin who visited the family yesterday told Malaysiakini the incident was regrettable, particularly after the public outcry over the death of police detainee A Kugan.
"Just a few days ago, they released the findings of the Kugan case and again this has happened in Selangor. It is regrettable. Didn’t the police learn anything from that episode?" said Khairul, who distributed pictures of Adi Anwar in the ICU ward to the media yesterday.
Khairul also urged the new Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who promised reforms, to look into the matter as well as police lock-up procedures.
