While some folks enjoyed the Monsoon Cup,
While some ministers chomped to fat cigars in Kuala Lumpur’s best humidors,
While other folks had a cosy party at Seri Perdana to celebrate Malaysia’s 50th anniversary of independence last August,
While Zakaria Md Derus was enjoying life in a 16-room mansion in Klang,
Some people have been subsisting on less than 50 ringgit a month. Folks in Abaco Estate in Selangor (supposed to be the richest state in Malaysia) have no running water and no toilet facilities, hell !
And Mr Samy, what have you been doing? Yes, I have heard so many instances of Samy Vellu helping folks. The true stories as well as the cynical ones.
I know the Ijok thug Sivalingam (he’s dead now) used to do anything but help the downtrodden etate folks (oh, he was in Xavier Jayakumar’s portfolio before in case you people also mudah lupa).
So Mr Samy, are you unaware of your Indian “makkals” drinking foul-smelling water? Or were you aware and tried to get government help, but were rudely snubbed by he Umno Napoleons in the Cabinet?
You say tears come to your eyes when you hear of your people’s plight. Cry now! Cry till you go blind. While you are at it, go get your two yes-men; fighter-cock (I don’t need Indian votes to win) Sothinathan and (I’m a wimp who will wait quietly for my boss to die) Palanivel.
Where are they now? You wanna fight Hindraf’s cause? No need, cos other people have been doing it longer and with more conviction.
You should devote what is left of your life righting the wrongs you have done in all these decades at the helm of MIC.
As for Dr Jeyakumar, I have this to say. “I hope your broom stays new, always. Cos then it will always sweep clean”.
When you run out of brooms, ask Khir Toyo. I believe he has some in storage.
