Chitrakala: MIC Youth chief’s publicity stunt

Contributed by Anonymous on Thursday, July 23 @ 10:26:39 CDT

Thursday, July 23, 2009
Faced by potential challenge to his MIC youth leadership, Mohan Thangarasu is showing sudden interest in Kampong Buah Pala land issue.

The demonstration and police arrest drama shows his desperation for publicity.

And, he says MIC is willing to pay RM 3.2 million for the land. Who in MIC authorized this purchase?

Is he going to use the RM 3.2 million hijacked from MIED fund that was channeled to his National Service Camp in Sungkai, Perak?


MIC Offering RM3.2 Million To Get Back Kampung Buah Pala Land By: Ramjit--> PENANG, July 23 (Bernama) -- The MIC is willing to offer RM3.2 million if the Penang government can get back the land in Kampung Buah Pala, Bukit Gelugor from the developer.

MIC Youth chief T. Mohan said the move was to enable the residents to continue living in the village.

He was speaking to reporters after handing a memorandum to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng through the latter's political secretary Ng Wei Eik at the Tun Abdul Razak Complex (Komtar), here, Thursday.

Mohan and a group of men arrived at Komtar at about 5.30pm to hand over the memorandum immediately after he was released from police arrest.

They were arrested about 10am today in Jalan Datuk Keramat here for illegal assembly to hand over the memorandum to the Chief Minister.

Asked whether the value of the land of the land could be higher than the price at which the land was sold, Mohan said: "Why did the Pakatan Rakyat state government proceed with the sale of the land when they knew the value was higher?"

According to the records, the Barisan Nasional had initiated the sale of the land but the confirmation letter on the land ownership was issued by the present state government led by Lim on March 27 last year.

There was commotion at Komtar after Mohan handed over the memorandum when a man verbally abused the group, causing them to chase the man and beat him, but the police managed to restore order.

The Kampung Buah Pala land controversy came about when the villagers were ordered to vacate the land before Aug 3 following the sale of the 2.6ha land by the previous state government to Koperasi Pegawai Kerajaan Pulau Pinang Bhd, which then appointed Nusmetro Ventures (P) Sdn to develop the land.

MIC's Mohan, Nine Other Men Held For Illegal Assembly In Penang     -->
PENANG, July 23 (Bernama) -- MIC Youth coordinator T. Mohan and nine other men were on Thursday detained by police for illegal assembly after about 50 people gathered here to march to the Komtar building to hand over a memorandum to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on the Kampung Buah Pala issue.

The 10, aged between 18 and 49, were held at about 10am in front of a temple in Jalan Datuk Keramat where they had gathered, with some among them having brought along several bullock carts, Penang police chief Datuk Ayub Yaakob said.

He told a news conference that a team of policemen was despatched to the area to disperse the gathering but the group refused to do so and some of the people began to march towards Komtar, bringing with them the bullock carts.

"The police had no option but to detain the 10 men in an effort to disperse the demonstrators in order to maintain public order," he said.

Ayub said the 10 men were brought to the North East District police station for questioning, but the rest of the group gathered in front of the police station, along with the bullock carts, and demanded the release of the 10 men.

A traffic congestion occurred as curious motorists slowed down to find out why a huge crowd had gathered in front of the police station, he said, adding that the demonstrators dispersed after repeated advice by the police.

The demonstration was held in support of Kampung Buah Pala residents who have been ordered to vacate the land after the Federal Court dismissed their appeal to remain in the area which they have been occupying for a long time.

The residents have refused to move out and have asked the Penang government to intervene to resolve the problem.

Ayub advised all quarters not to exploit the issue by holding illegal gatherings and demonstrations, saying the police had so far received 26 reports from various quarters on the issue, including on threats issued to the residents.

The residents have until Aug 3 to move out, and Ayub said the police were prepared and hoped that there would not be any untoward incidents.
