High Chaparral: Samy Vellu slams Ramasamy

MIC
NST, Jul 25 2005
KUALA LUMPUR: MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu yesterday accused Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Prof P. Ramasamy of not doing enough to solve the Kampung Lorong Buah Pala issue. "Where are you now? Why don't you open your mouth and speak? Why are you hiding?"


He also hit out at Ramasamy's aide, saying it was the aide that provoked the MIC Youth members who had gone to submit a memorandum to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on Thursday.

Ramasamy said yesterday that an MIC Youth member had assaulted his aide M. Sattees.

It was reported that Sattees, 24, was punched during a scuffle after the memorandum was handed to the chief minister's political secretary, Ng Wei Aik, at Komtar.
The Kampung Lorong Buah Pala issue became heated after the Federal Court ordered the 23 families living in the 2.6ha village to vacate the land by Aug 2.
But residents have refused to move and are pressuring the state government for help.

Samy Vellu also slammed former MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam, who is expected to contest the post of deputy president in the September party polls.

Speaking after handing loans to 93 young Indian entrepreneurs, Samy Vellu questioned Subramaniam's contribution to the party over the last 25 years.

He said Subramaniam was responsible for Maika Holding's failure to return shareholders their money.

It was reported that Nesa Cooperative Bhd, which Subramaniam heads, has applied for an injunction to stop the sale of an insurance company owned by Maika Holdings.

"I'm very wounded. Because of him, Maika Holdings' shareholders lost the opportunity to get back their money.

"You know why he does it? Because he wants the 66,000 shareholders to curse me."

Samy Vellu revealed a pact he made with Subramaniam five months ago. Sunbramaniam would withdraw the injunction and Samy Vellu would not endorse any candidate in party elections.

"What kind of man goes against his word? He doesn't have the community's interest at heart."************
RM15 Million Loan For Young Indian Entrepreneurs By: Ramjit--> KUALA LUMPUR, July 24 (Bernama) -- The Government, through the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) and Tekun Nasional (Tekun), has approved a RM15 million loan for Indian youths to expand their businesses this year.

MIC President Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu said the move showed the Barisan Nasional's (BN) commitment towards catering the needs of the Indian community and that the BN never neglected any race in this country.

"With this business loan from the government, we want to establish more young entrepreneurs among the Indian youths. This loan will help the Indian community in achieving three percent equity by the year 2015," he said at the cheque presentation ceremony for the Indian Young Entrepreneur Development Scheme at Wisma Tun Sambanthan here, Friday.

A total of 93 entrepreneurs received loans amounting to RM761,000 at the ceremony. He said the Tekun business loan was promoted and coordinated by the Strategic Social Foundation under the MIC which was established in 1998 to improve the socio-economy of the Indian community.

Later, when asked on his endorsement for in*****bent deputy president Datuk G. Palanivel to defend the party's No. 2 post at the MIC elections on Sept 12, he said, as a party leader, the action was necessary as he needed someone who he could work with.

Asked on the MIC offer to provide RM3.2 million to get back the land in Kampung Buah Pala, Bukit Gelugor from the developer to enable the residents to continue living in the village, Samy Vellu said: "It was just a suggestion, but we want to know why Pakatan Rakyat did not fulfill their promises made during the election on March 8 last year to solve the problem faced by the residents there."

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 Bhd to develop the land.
