Samy Vellu
By : M. K. Megan, NST
MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu rubbished talk on the web blogs that he is being "forced" by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi not to contest in the coming general election. In fact, said Samy Vellu, he and the prime minister have never discussed about election and candidates at all. "He has never asked me anything about elections or candidates and I have told him nothing. The day he (Abdullah) decides, he will call one by one all the component party leaders and discuss the candidates' list. But until now nothing of that sort has happened," he said after officiating the opening of Duromac's (M) Sdn Bhd's new premises in Bandar Kinrara, Puchong, near here yesterday.

He was responding when asked about a report on one of the blogs that reported that Samy Vellu in a recent meeting with the prime pinister is being forced by Abdullah to resign and not seek re-election in the coming general election.

In jest Samy Vellu said: "Yes. The prime minister told me not to contest in the year 2010. The stories (blog reports) are all work of mad people."

Samy Vellu described as “mad” the people whop spread lies over the Internet and short messaging system over handphones. "But the more they try to destroy the party the stronger we become," he said.
"I know there is one ‘fat mad man’ from Klang whose work is only these (SMS)," said the Works Minister.

On news reports that many aspiring candidates in Selangor were trying to get close to Samy Vellu in an effort to get a seat in the coming general election, the party president said: "Nothing of that sort. We will pick candidates who can work for the people. They must be of calibre and have the ability to serve. Just because they come and show their face to me more often it does not mean they will be picked to contest the general election."

Furthermore, added Samy Vellu the candidates list would have to be approved by the prime minister first.

‘Samy blasts ‘mad fellows’ KUALA LUMPUR: MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has rejected Internet speculation that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has told him not to contest in the coming general election.   “Yes, yes, he told me not to contest in 2010,” he said mockingly after opening Duromac (M) Sdn Bhd’s new premises here.   Responding to such postings on the web, Samy Vellu blamed it on a “set of mad fellows going around” with the idea of destroying the MIC.   “But the more they do it, the stronger we are.   “These fellows are going to die with the SMS because they are getting mad every day. They will come to a level very soon where they are fit to go into the mental hospital,'' he charged.   He pinpointed the rumour to a “fat fellow” in Klang.  Asked who the person was, Samy said: “I know. You do the research. A mad fellow goes around the streets. He makes noise and all that.”  On suggestions that former MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam was lobbying to stand as a candidate, Samy said: “Let rumours be rumours.”   Meanwhile, Johor MIC chief Datuk K.S. Balakrishnan said he was willing to step aside if the party wishes so.  The five-term state assemblyman and two-term state exco member said even if he were no longer contesting, he would back Barisan Nasional and give his full support to ensure that the coalition won.  “I think I have served the public throughout and I will continue to serve them even if I am no longer in office,” he said in Johor Baru yesterday.   Balakrishnan served as Pasir Gudang state assemblyman for four terms from 1986 and won the Permas state seat in the 2004 general election.  He is also currently the state local trade and consumer affairs executive councillor.  There is wide speculation in Johor that Balakrishnan may not be fielded in the coming election as he has been an elected representative for 22 years now.
