By S. Retnanathan

PUTRAJAYA, Aug 17 (Bernama) -- MIC president Datuk Seri S.

Speaking at the Johor BN convention on July 25, the prime minister Mahathir quipped that it was very cheap for him to treat Malaysian Indian Congress president S Samy Vellu to a meal because he was a vegetarian.
All he had to do, Mahathir said, was to go and cut some blades of grass to serve the MIC president. Mahathir subsequently apologised for the joke.

Mahabharatha started in MIC says Samy in a closed door meeting held in Puchong for MIC branch leaders of Puchong, Serdang and Subang divisions. Malaysia Nanban headline - 16/09/05.

Some excerpts from samy's speech:

"I have been president for several years but till today never gave away anything to my family that belongs to Indian community. MIC got 5 petrol stations and I gave it MIC."

"55 police reports were made accusing me of swindling Maika holdings money. When did I ever manage Maika? Velpaari (Samy's son) went in only when Maika was about to collapse and he saved it"

"Lots of problems in society but some are playing politics from morning till night."

Samy: Government action needed for Indians to get 3% equity “If it doesn’t happen in the next five years (when the OPP3 runs out), there is no point in talking about it anymore. What is the point of meeting in forum after forum on how to achieve the 3% equity?

“If nothing happens by then, we won’t ask anything from the Government anymore. We’ll close shop,” he said after attending a briefing on economic issues by the National Economic Action Council to 500 Indian corporate leaders and politicians here yesterday. - The Star 14/10/05
