Malaysian Indians urged to pursue education, enterprise
Thursday 24th January, 2008
Indians should stay united and work to improve their lot through education to ‘get on par’ with other races in Malaysia, a senior leader of the community has said. [ Thats what they are doing now after nov 25th ]
Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) leader and the country’s Works Minister S. Samy Vellu said Wednesday that education alone would help the community to be on its path to socio-economic development and parity with other communities.
‘We should be on par with other races and have thousands of graduates among us,’ he told the media during Thaipusam celebrations, a festival of Tamil Hindus, at Batu Caves. [ so,it was not until today – agreed ]
‘Don’t believe the opposition’s stories and accusations. Yes, there are areas in which we are lagging such as in the job market, in getting placement at universities and in getting government contracts,’ Vellu was quoted as saying by The New Straits Times. [ then which field is left,you stupid samy ]
‘But it is not as if we are not getting opportunities at all,’ said Vellu, citing examples of five Class-A Indian contractors who had successfully linked up with the Bumiputera (indigenous Malays) contractors to obtain government projects.[ its his cronies who got the project]
‘You can’t just sit at home and expect contracts to drop on your lap. You must be active and seek out opportunities,’ he said. [says other indian business man are lazy and not working for it]
Vellu said there were 3,000 Malaysian students of Indian origin overseas, 1,500 of whom were being supported by the MIC.[big lie, no proof]
Vellu brushed off a question on whether the recent declaration of Thaipusam as a public holiday in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya was a political ploy in view of the upcoming elections. ‘You think the Indian community is that foolish? Just because the holiday has been given, they will make a favourable decision? The Indian community is very smart now. They are not like before,‘ he said. [ This his major disappointment ]
The MIC that Vellu has been leading for long has been part of the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition.
