Samy Vellu: BN Manifesto Covers Interests Of All Communities

Contributed by Anonymous on Wednesday, February 27 @ 03:39:07 CST

BATU KAWAN, Feb 26(Bernama) -- The Barisan Nasional's (BN) manifesto for the 2008 general election takes into account the interests of all communities in the country, including problems raised by the Indian community, says MIC President Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

The Works Minister said that the issues raised by the Indian community include Tamil schools and scholarships for students

"I have forwarded those problems to the BN manifesto committee and its members had included those concerns (and solutions) in the manifesto," he told reporters after meeting residents in Batu Kawan here today.

Among the points contained in the manifesto launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi yesterday are safeguarding the position of national type schools and providing more scholarships for tertiary education to students from poor families who qualified irrespective of their race.

Samy Vellu said the inclusion of such pledges proved that the BN government did not cast aside any community, including minority races, in the country.

As a leader representing the Indian community in Malaysia, he said he was committed to ensure that everything enshrined in the manifesto would be carried out.

"I thank the BN government for taking into account the problems of the Indian community and I will continuously ensure that what had been pledged would be carried out," he said.

He also reminded the Indian community not to question the responsibility of the MIC towards Indians in the country as it had been fighting for their causes since it was established years ago.

"The relations of the MIC and the Indian community are like that of a husband and wife. The husband need not question the responsibility of the wife towards the husband and what has been done by the wife. The wife cooks and washes. The husband knows the duties of the wife, there is no need to ask what else she has to do for the husband," Sammy Vellu said.

While speaking in Kulim, the minister said he was confident that BN would win convincingly the state seats of Lunas and Bukit Selambau in Kedah via MIC candidates.

"Prior to this there were some problems involving some young people in Lunas but this had been overcome and I am confident that there won't be any more problems," he said when introducing the two MIC candidates -- Kedah MIC Secretary S. Ananthan, who will contest in Lunas, and Kedah MIC Treasurer S. Krishnan in Bukit Selambau.

He said both candidates met the criteria to become elected representatives of the people.

In the 2004 general election, MIC fielded Kedah MIC Vice President Datuk S. Ganeson to contest in Lunas while Kedah MIC Chairman Datuk S. Saravanan battled in Bukit Selambau.

"The young generation now wants to co-operate with and has shown interest in MIC and this shows that we will win the two seats (in Kedah)," he said.

He explained that whenever the MIC made changes to the line-up of candidates, it was primarily to meet the challenges and demands of its supporters and the people.

"If we don't replace those who cannot meet new challenges, we (MIC) will be left behind," said samy Vellu.
