Subra tight-lipped about comeback
Anonymous on Wednesday, February 06 @ 18:32:30 CST
When asked, Subramaniam refused to comment. The
only thing he said was: “People are talking about it. My supporters
still want me to rep-resent them.”
Samy Vellu also declined to comment when asked, saying that: “It is all rumours. Let it remain as rumours.”
It was reported in Tamil dailies that Samy Vellu’s son, S. Vel Pari, had met Subramaniam recently.
Vel Pari, however, denied meeting the former deputy president on poll matters.
“He has known me since I was a little boy. Out of respect, I acknowledge him wherever I see him,” he said.
MIC deputy president Datuk G. Palanivel and vice-president Datuk S. Veerasingam also refused to comment on the speculation.
Subramaniam’s staunch supporter K.P. Samy, also a former MIC
central working committee member, said that if his leader made a
comeback, it could cool off the tension between the members, many of
whom were allegedly still angry over Subramaniam’s “forced” departure
two years ago.
“The opposition is also worried that Subramaniam’s supporters, who
are currently in other parties, might swing back Indian votes to BN if
he makes a comeback,” he said.
Former MIC vice-president Datuk V. Govindaraj is also openly
campaigning for the return of Subramaniam to mainstream politics.
“MIC can regain some of the confidence and the Indian votes that
had waned since the Hindraf rally on Nov 25 if Subramaniam is brought
back to the main fold.
“He still commands a large following among the Indian community,” he said.
If supporters and political pundits were not enough to resurrect
Subramanian’s political career, astrologers, too, were hard at work to
prove the point.
Astrologer P. Suthanthiran said Subramaniam’s stars were good and good things would happen to him from now.
“According to his birth date, which is on Oct 26, 1946, the stars
are in a favourable position and he will enjoy good fortune at least
for the next five years,” he said.
“He will prosper in all fields, even in politics. He will rise
high and might even be made a full minister as I see his salary will
increase to more than RM30,000 a month,” he said, in reference to a
minister’s monthly salary.
