Shocking!! They always called Samy Vellu a gangster and a thug. Perhaps this was one reason he controlled MIC for 32 years. He is supposed to have helped Indians, but here, I am being fair, there have been instances when he had helped out Indians in need. But with all the scandals in MIC, the help he rendered is considered pittance – he could have if he intended to help the Indians, more.

 

Well, he is reaching his end days, and I can tell you it is frustrating to know you have not done the best having been given the chance. God help him to find his peace.

 

Now we see the younger gangsters and thugs within MIC. Samy was a Batu Caves one, where does T.Mohan come from. He can’t beat Samy, he cannot last 32 years, and seeing his picture:

 

I can vouch he is too young and being in a precarious position to follow Samy. I believe his wife is involved. My suggestion to this family, you cannot be like Samy, he was special because the Indians were foolish to believe MIC was there for them. Now, they curse Samy but with the present political upheaval, Mohans cannot do anything for the Indians. Please get on with your lives, you cannot be another Samy. You may end up being sorry. Good luck.

 

What intrigued me was this statement:

To questions from reporters, Latheefa said the mob shouted that the issue of stateless ethnic Indians was an MIC issue, and asked why PKR was getting involved.

Why are Indians made stupid by MIC. You can’t do it, why not let others do. MIC is a washout but there are some “never die” members, displaying prominence, have you forgotten why Najib is even willing to bring in Makkal Sakthi, to get Indian support. 300,000 Indian people were not helped. Where are you MIC.   

 

 

MIC thugs attacked us at PM’s office, decries PKR veep

PKR claims that its delegation to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) this morning was attacked at the gates by MIC thugs, causing one member to be warded in Putrajaya Hospital for his injuries.
NONEThe party’s vice-president N Surendran said he and about 30 PKR leaders and supporters were there for an appointment with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak on the issue of secondary school student Reshina Batumanathan’s citizenship.
“We found hundreds of MIC gangsters waiting there for us.
“What was even more shocking was that they were led by MIC Youth chief T Mohan himself, and other MIC leaders,” Surendran told a press conference at PKR’s headquarters in Tropicana, Selangor.
In the incident about 11.30am, Surendran said, the MIC men charged at him and Reshina, but they were blocked by PKR supporters. They were then able to enter the PMO.
NONE“However, PKR Puchong division chief S Murali was pulled out and seriously beaten by the MIC gangsters. He was bleeding from his eye and fainted. He was then admitted to the hospital,” he said.

PKR’s Women’s wing chief Zuraida Kamaruddin, who was also with the delegation, expressed disappointment that police officers at the scene did not intervene in the scuffle.
Other PKR leaders in the delegation were its director of strategy Rafizi Ramli, legal bureau head Latheefa Koya, MP for Kapar S Manickavasagam and information bureau committee member K Gunasekaran, all of whom were also present at the press conference.
Latheefa claimed that the attack was pre-mediated and that the group was not there by coincidence, for they carried banners making reference to Surendran.

‘MIC Youth leader’s wife tweeted, asking for Surendran’

Also, Mohan’s wife had tweeted, “Where are you Surendran, we are waiting for you,” prior to the attack.
To questions from reporters, Latheefa said the mob shouted that the issue of stateless ethnic Indians was an MIC issue, and asked why PKR was getting involved.
NONEReshina, 17, was expelled by her school last month because she did not have an IC to register for the SPM examination, even though she was born in Malaysia and her father has a blue IC, indicating that he is documented as a citizen.
“Under Article 14 (of the federal constitution), she is automatically a citizen of Malaysia because her father is a citizen,” said Surendran, who also showed the father’s IC to members of the press.
He said Reshina “is living proof” that the government’s MyDaftar programme to register undocumented Malaysians was a failure, and claimed that the programme’s taskforce consultant, Siva Subramaniam, had advised her to register to study as a foreigner.
This was unacceptable, Surendran said, as Reshina is not a foreigner but a Malaysian who does not have the documents to acknowledge her citizenship.
He urged Najib to recognise her citizenship within 24 hours, since the pertinent documents had already been handed to his aide Ghazali Ibrahim.
As for the attack, Surendran said a police report would be lodged on the matter tomorrow afternoon.
As of late this evening, Malaysiakini’s attempts to reach the MIC’s Mohan for his comments have been unsuccessful.

MIC had not blogged about MIC for quite some time. Sad to say Samy Velu is not around and what can MIC do to interest us on the so called goodies MIC has graced the Indian community. Without Samy MIC is dead and Palanivelu cannot and would not build up MIC to heights maintained by our Samy.

But junior clones of the Sami establishment remain though – R.Ramanan, T.Mohan, V.Ragunathan, who are there to remind Indians MIC is great.

It is still money and illegal dealings, and in time to come, the present day leaders of MIC will beat Samy to the race.

So, MIC is still life and kicking, still helping Indians, but as usual picking up money here and there. Can’t they be ever straight?

Tables turned on Ramanan
K Pragalath |  April 16, 2011

Police report lodged against MIC Youth branch leader for allegedlly swindling a psychiatrist of RM5.5 million in a land matter.

KUALA LUMPUR: Bandar Syed Putra MIC Youth head, R Ramanan, who had accused MIC Youth chief T Mohan of misappropriating funds amounting to RM100,000 from a charity dinner, appears to have had the tables turned on him.

Social activist V Ragunathan, 32, a close friend of Ramanan, lodged a report against the latter this morning at the Sentul police station for fraud.

Ragunathan told the press that he lodged the report based on documented evidence he received on April 10 of Ramanan’s involvement in a land matter involving psychiatrist Dr M Mahadevan and the defence ministry.

“Ramanan squandered RM5.5 million from Mahadevan after pleading he could settle a land dispute the doctor had with the defence ministry,” said Ragunathan.

Ramanan produced an unsigned letter purportedly from defence ministry as an inducement to convince Mahadevan he could solve the latter’s problem over a plot of land in Kedah.

Mahadevan rented out a plot of land in Sungai Petani several decades ago to the defence ministry. However, it stopped paying rental to the doctor in the 1980s, said Ragunathan.

The outstanding rental amount involved is RM26,638,737.96.

Ragunathan wanted to know why the police had not taken action against Ramanan even though a police report was lodged by Mahadevan at the commercial crimes division in Bukit Aman last year.

“Are they afraid to act because he is linked to MIC or because he is a datuk?” asked Ragunathan.

He submitted a copy of the purportedly forged letter from the defence ministry, a bank slip showing a payout for RM5.5 million and a copy of a police report previously lodged by Mahadevan in 2010.

Ramanan was sacked as MIC Youth public complaints by Mohan in February
this year.

MIC and PPP leaders are in ecstasy, now that the 3 remaining ISA detainees of Hindraf have been released. I think they are a bit hasty, and as I see it, this new development may eventually be the death knoll for MIC and PPP. These two parties have been hoodwinking the Indians that they champion their cause, but in realty it was just a ploy to gain political mileage and benefits from the government. People like Samy Vellu, T.Murugiah, Dr S.Subramaniam, and Vell Paari should consider early retirement as their background and the sacrifice made by the 5 Hindraf people will surely ring a bell in the minds of Indians.

 

Samy is great. ISA does not auger well in international circles. There was no humility as I see, it was more repentance as another blogger said and a way to lessen the Perak fiasco.  

 

Murugiah feels he had a part in the release, he had spoken to Najib when he was the Deputy Prime Minister and now getting the mandate of the Prime Minister, Najib has acted. Don’t teach grandmothers to suck eggs, even with no gums their excel in this job, and don’t be a macho that your conversation with Najib caused this – surely for a new leader you would have minded your words; just congratulations would have sufficed. In any case, Kayveas says your own division in Silibin is de-registered and I don’t want to burden you more.

 

The Doctor had to say something. People-centred my foot, please doctor is there anything better.

 

Vell Pari takes the cake. How many sad chapters have their origin in his authorship.

 

T.Mohon dreams. These Hindraf chaps only did things the MIC could not do. Keep on dreaming then.

 

Mr R.Nadarajah is entitled to his opinion and I hasten to add, means nothing.

MIC: Decision will boost country’s image

KUALA LUMPUR: The release of the ISA detainees will do well for the image of the country, both locally and internationally, MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said.

He said the Government showed concern and humility in releasing them.

“We can now move on and concentrate on more pressing matters to bring progress to the people,” he said.

Samy Vellu said the Prime Minister and the Home Minister had shown sensitivity to the suffering of the families of the ISA detainees by releasing them so that they could be reunited with their loved ones.

“Our Prime Minister has kept his promise to be a fair leader to all Malaysians,” he said.

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk T. Murugiah said in Seremban that he had previously met Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who was then Deputy Prime Minister, on the possible release of the Hindraf leaders.

“I appealed to Najib for their release and he told me that he would consider it when the time was right. Today, he has proven to be a good leader for keeping his word,” he said.

Murugiah said the trend of the Indians throwing their support for Barisan Nasional was already evident during recent by-elections.

“With the release of the three, the Indians would return to the Barisan fold,” he added.

MIC secretary-general and Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam said he was grateful to the Prime Minister, the Home Minister and the Government for releasing the 13 detainees.

“It shows that the Government is people-centred,” he said.

MIC Youth adviser S. Vell Paari said the release of Hindraf leaders would put an end to a sad chapter in the Malaysian Indian affairs.

“It would heal the hearts of the Indians as their detention was bothering them,” he said in a statement.

Vell Paari, who is chairman of the MIC Unity Committee, said MIC had still a lot of work to attract the support of Indians to the party.

MIC Youth coordinator T. Mohan hoped the release of the detainees would lead to the Indians returning en masse to support MIC.

Malaysia Hindu Council president Datuk R. Nadarajah said the council believed that the Government under Najib would bring about more changes and benefits for the people.

DAP chairman Karpal Singh quipped in Ipoh that the ISA should be “pensioned” off, adding that the three Hindraf leaders should not even have been detained.

MIC now begs for a second Ministerial post from Najib. With Najib trying to streamline the cabinet, it is nigh impossible that he would agree. The joke going around is Samy Vellu will be made a Senator and may walk in through the back door to possibly get back his Works Ministry or Minister of Indian Affairs as they did in Perak. Najib must be dumb enough to do that.

T.Mohan the youth coordinator may not know the history of MIC, but it was Samy Vellu who in the seventies did not want a second Minister after Athi Nahappan died. Samy Velu asked for and got a deputy Ministers post to replace a Minister. Sam was frightened of rivalry.

T.Mohan may not know, if Athi Nahappan had not died in 1976, we would have missed Samy Vellu being the President of MIC, and what a frightful thought it is. Indians without Samy Vellu. Just can’t imagine.

Read my earlier posting here.  

MIC seeks second ministerial post

KUALA LUMPUR: MIC Youth has urged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to consider giving another minister post to the party.

Its coordinator T. Mohan said this was necessary as the Indian community faced numerous social problems and issues which could only be addressed by an Indian appointee.

He said the MIC used to have two ministers during the tenure of Prime Minister Tun Hussein Onn. The then MIC president Tun V.T. Sambanthan was in charge of the Unity portfolio while Tan Sri Athi Nahappan was Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department.

Mohan said that the present one full minister and two deputy ministers was inadequate to serve the 1.9 million Indians in the country.

He said the additional post would make it easier for MIC to go to the ground and regain the lost support for Barisan.

B.Kalaivanar of PKR quit his Jerai division leader post together with 500 supporters, claiming he was disappointed he was not chosen as a candidate, second, PKR has not done anything for the Indians. 500 goats followed him and resigned.

In the first place, what made him join PKR, was it just he wanted to be in politics, or is it he wanted to be elected as an assemblyman. Or was it because he liked the ideals of PKR and joined the party. Apparently he has decided to support MIC and help Ganesan. But this decision will have to wait for another day. Perhaps he has not met up with Samy Vellu, you must understand he has to be compensated for taking a very difficult decision to quit PKR. Samy Vellu will have a good laugh, be sympathetic, dole out something, and behind his back comment what an idiot, a fellow who changes party like changing clothes, he is only good until the Bukit Selambau election is over, and after that he is to be treated as an outcast as he will be a bad example for fellow MIC members. Good luck Kalaivanar.

He was given a chance to stand in Gurun, in the last elections but he lost. How on earth can be expected to win now if he had been nominated. A loser will be a loser, does he understand that.  

How is he going to convince the Indian voters MIC is good. Even Kedah UMNO does not want Samy Vellu to campaign and lately he was abused verbally by an outsider. Is Kalaivanar going to say MIC is best because they help Indians, and if this is true why the heck join PKR in the first instance. People are not fools. He will be unlucky if he faces the same predicament as Samy Vellu.

What about the 500 goats being led by Kalaivanar, are they joining MIC as well. Samy Vellu will love you for that because he has got another group to exploit and throw away when found not useful. 

The first thing that struck my mind was how these Indian based non-government organisations agreed to form an alliance with MIC. We don’t have the list of the NGOs. I can only surmise this is one further exercise in re-branding the now political party that has lost its importance and standing in the political arena.

Samy admits that MIC can’t do it alone, he wants others to help. But why should these NGOs submit to him and be classified as another extension to MIC. Would they want to lose the influence they have by associating with a party which has a President who wants bury the party with him, a non-entity as far as Indians are concerned and finally end up as sore loser. Think NGOs.

 

MIC forges alliance with NGOs for by-elections

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 19 — The MIC has formed an alliance with several Indian-based non-governmental organisations to face the April 7 by-elections in Bukit Selambau and Bukit Gantang, party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said today.

He said the party had formed a “working team” made up of party grassroots leaders and the NGOs to ensure better understanding and coordination, especially in wooing the Indian voters, who had backed the opposition candidate in the last general election.

He said the MIC wanted to adopt a new approach by roping in the NGOs into its election machinery “because they are a strong force among the people”.

“The NGOs have made an impact in the last general election and we have now forged an alliance with many of the NGOs to win the hearts and minds of the voters,” he told reporters after chairing the MIC central working committee meeting at the party headquarters here.

He also said the party had activated its operations room in the Bukit Selambau state and Bukit Gantang parliamentary constituencies for which nominations would be held on March 29.

He said that over the last one year, the opposition had failed to bring any developments to Bukit Selambau and now the people wanted change.

“We have also formed a youth NGO team in Bukit Gantang to woo Indian youths in the constituency,” he said, adding that the party would focus more on the younger voters.

Samy Vellu also said that the party would not be drawn into a spat with other Barisan Nasional component parties over who should contest in Bukit Selambau, which has been traditionally been contested by the MIC.

“Our priority is to ensure a Barisan Nasional victory, not only in Bukit Selambau but also in Bukit Gantang,” he said, adding that it would be an uphill task but with early preparations, “we can win”. — Bernama

A corruption report has been made against MIC President Samy Vellu by a former MIC youth leader.

Among the allegations are:

  • Giving 3 contracts to companies close to him in building the AIMST university
  • These 3 companies are controlled by Samy Vellu’s friends and cronies
  • MIC branches paid RM110,000 for the University, which resulted in RM25 million and RM100 from contractors and individuals. Government gave RM300 million, from Bank Pembangunan RM220 million – a total of RM645 million
  • It is alleged that there exists possibilities the prices could be marked up with Samy being the benefactor.

The origin goes back to Samy Vellu instructing MIED, the education arm, to revoke 2 contracts given out by open tender system and reassign them to Samy Vellu’s friends. Party Treasurer Mahalingam had to back his bags as Chairperson, as well as P.Chitthirakala Vasu being asked to resign. This woman wants to fight Samy until the truth is known.

Chitthira was a close associate of Samy and at one time written a book on Sam trumpeting his leadership and humanistic qualities.

She is now in the receiving end, having received a show cause letter from Samy. She maintains that everything she did was on the instructions of Samy Vellu. Sothinathan has also reported some files are missing. I wonder what these files are.

Has this woman have enough evidence to damage Samy Vellu, it is now speculation time.

MIC is asking for the Bukit Selambau seat in Kedah and hopes to field V.Saravanan as their candidate. This chap was the MIC representative for Bukit Selambau seat in 2004 and was dropped in the 2008 elections and another S.Krishnan was selected, who lost to V.Arumugam of PKR who is still missing in action. Some say he is with his second wife in India.

Of course V.Saravanan is all excited about his re-birth after being discarded by Samy Vellu. He says MIC lost in the last elections because people had deserted Barisan Nasional. Of course, the reason was the Malays going against UMNO, MCA had lost the Chinese voters and the Indians were angry with Samy Vellu. Saravanan also adds during his time as assemblyperson, he said MIC had helped to build three Tamil schools, upgrade basic infrastructure, amenities and facilities in the constituency. So, with the good done by Saravanan, Samy dumped him and the people dumped S.Krishnan.

As I see it, if Najib agrees to MIC getting this seal, then, it may hasten the demise of MIC and Samy Vellu, and this may spell good for the Indians.

This is from G.Krishnan in his blog Imagine, a very appropriate scenery of MIC as it is today.

MIC Youth Chief T.Mohan, a devout follower of his chief Samy Vellu, knows his future in the party is not bright without Samy Vellu, has now turned a sycophant, flattering and beating the drum to ensure that the chosen candidate of the choice of his chief gets to be the next President of MIC. There then goes the dreams and aspirations  of Palanivel – the chosen one is Sothinathan.

T.Mohan feels the right candidate for President should be one who is able to push the party forward. True, true, with all the heavy baggage MIC drags along one must have a brawny fellow with bulging muscles to give the party a hefty push. Apparently Sothinathan fits into this category well. I can well imagine all contenders for President rushing to the gym to tone up their muscles. But, be careful though, don’t get hurt carrying iron – it is heavy.

What about Muthupalaniappan’s challenge. He is 66 and old and one sees a bulk of a man but no muscles – definitely cannot be a contender to push MIC.

The youth leader worries the prize will be handed over in a silver platter to the most senior man and the MIC youth as a whole is against this practice of seniority and ability. Muscles and  size will suffice.

Palanivel at 59 is old and following the old is gold concept Samy at 73 is vibrant and ever ready to prove he has muscle. Anyone for arm wrestling! No wonder Mohan wants somebody vibrant and young.

I can understand the undying admiration of T.Mohan to push forward the idea of the President, but has he thought about alternatives. Why not crown Samy as King of MIC, I am sure Mohan can pull a few strings and ropes to get it done. In this, the question of election is put to rest. Samy can reign until his last breath and be succeeded by his son Vel Paari. Problem solved.

T.Mohan need not worry about physical strength, muscles, silver platter, pushing and shoveling and all that.    

Finally the Government has declared Hindraf as an illegal organisation. This is confirmed by Malaysiakini. We have to thank Syed Hamid Albar, the Home Minister, for the gesture as he has been always uncomfortable with this group.

The reasons given for the decision makes me laugh, but then a lot of things the Government does today is full of mirth.

Hindraf has been used for unlawful purposes, posed a threat to public order and morality.

It is also accused of as a threat to security, sovereignty of the country and racial harmony.

In addition, the group has exploited the Indian community, to organise illegal assemblies, street demonstrations without permits, and causing some members to rise up against the Government.

Hindraf is also responsible for causing hatred among the Malays and Indians.

What Hamid has done is arousing in the Indians a new awareness of the unfairness of the Government towards Hindraf and what it stood for. The organisation just wanted a better deal for the Indians, who had been marginalised, something which MIC never did, the members of this political party being subservient to UMNO.

Hindraf will be resurrected in another form, maybe with a new name, and I can foresee the Indians having no kind thought for Barisan and MIC.

Hindraf has had a very active, and positive role, to improve the welfare of the Indians, something MIC never did, especially during the time Samy Vellu assumed the Presidency. Commencing November 2007, when the peaceful rally was organised, Hindraf had been the voice of the Indians and some say the rally aroused the awareness of the Indians that they were being short changed by MIC and Barisan Nasional.

MIC can never replace Hindraf. The Indians must migrate to the opposition, hoping and wishing the opposition will rule and the Indians get a fair deal.

And finally, if the ISA had not been used against the Hindraf five, this group would have been another non-entity along with other movements, but the Government saw it fit to publicise and give prominence to the group and helped the name to be etched in history.
