Samy Velluís final Koothu (drama)

Contributed by Anonymous on Sunday, December 05 @ 21:07:06 CST

Samy VelluThe Traveler, Monday, December 06, 2010
Samy Vellu, the lord of the Indians, has finally set to exit the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) Presidency in a couple of days or in couple of hours.
For 31 years Samy Vellu showed his koothu (drama) to the Indian community and in his final days of power, he is showing his final koothu to ensure his cronies are well placed in MIC, ensure that his arch enemy S Subramaniam, former MIC deputy president, do not seize power, ensure that his misdeeds are kept under the rag and ensure that his legacy lives.   





Samy Vellu’s hatred towards Subramaniam is equally like Mahathir’s hatred towards Anwar Ibrahim. The thought of their return will send chill to their spine.
Thus, Samy Vellu will go to any extent, even to the extent of bending the MIC constitution.
Any vacancy for the deputy president exists only after the president resigns and the deputy President Palanivel becomes the acting president.
How could Samy Vellu preempt in appointing Dr. Subramaniam? This should be the prerogative of the new acting president.
Further, the post of MIC president and deputy president are elected by two different Electoral group unlike UMNO, MCA, PPP and some other political parties.
The MIC president is elected by MIC branch chairman where else the deputy is elected by the divisional delegates.
As such, Samy Vellu’s contention that Palanivel will be full president and not an acting president does not make sense.
Weather it make sense or no sense, Samy Vellu is not bothered. Neither Palanivel nor the central working committee members (CWC) -- K P Samy who gave hard time to Samy Vellu in meetings has been expelled from MIC-- is going to question his koothu.
These MIC fellows digested his koothu for 31 years; why not digest it for one final time.
As part of the deal, Samy Vellu will be appointed as a special envoy to South Asia, a cabinet minister level position
More than that, Samy Vellu will retain his control on Maju Institute of Education Development (MIED), which includes AIMST University, purportedly worth 1 billion.
According to a source, already,  all MIED files have been moved out of MIC office.
“Samy Vellu will be exiting MIC with a golden handshake”, a business consultant lamented.
******December 06, 2010 10:20 AM MIC Meets To Finalise Power Transition
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 6 (Bernama) -- MIC's Central Working Committee (CWC) began its historic meeting here this morning as the party charts its first power transition in 31 years.

The CWC meeting will finalise the details of the hand over of power between the party's longest serving president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu and his deputy Datuk G. Palanivel.

Samy Vellu arrived at the party's headquarters at 9.56am and was greeted by the 61-year-old Palanivel and CWC members.

Samy Vellu, 74, who took over the helm of the party in 1979 after the death of its sixth president Tan Sri V. Manickavasagam, had said last week that the party would see a smooth power transition.

He is expected to get the CWC's mandate to hand over the leadership to Palanivel, his former press secretary, who will become MIC's eighth president.

MIC vice-president and Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam is expected to be named the deputy.

Monday December 6, 2010 Palanivel: Samy Vellu taught me well By FLORENCE A.SAMY

PETALING JAYA: Datuk G. Palanivel who is set to become the next MIC president has no plans to fill the shoes of his boss, Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu. “I cannot wear his shoes. He will always wear a different shoe. I will wear my own shoe.
"I may be low-profile but I have performed as a leader" - DATUK G. PALANIVEL
“We have very different styles but we are both committed to doing what is best for the party,’’ he said. Samy Vellu, who has held the top post since 1979, is expected to pass the baton to his deputy Palanivel, 61, during MIC’s central working committee meeting today. The 74-year-old is moving on as the Government’s special envoy for infrastructure to India and its neighbouring countries. Palanivel credited Samy Vellu for preparing him for the job, adding that he never thought he would replace him one day. “I have not given deep thought to being the eighth MIC president (since 1946) but I have been well-prepared. “I may be low-profile but I have performed as a leader. “Samy Vellu has taught me how to handle the political ropes both directly and indirectly. “I have learnt a lot from him on how to handle various situations,” he said recently. Describing himself as a committed and motivated person, Palanivel said his priority would be to mobilise the Indian votes, strengthen the party and build the next generation of leaders. “I do not have a personal or selfish agenda as I am not ambitious. “I do want to mobilise Indian votes, we must go down to the ground and meet the people,” he said. He added that MIC was ready to face the next general election given its strong structure and machinery. “The Indian voters are coming back but more needs to be done,” Palanivel added.****The StarMonday December 6, 2010 GAS members can’t rejoin MIC yet, says Mohan By MOHD FARHAAN SHAH
newsdesk@thestar.com.my
JOHOR BARU: Sacked MIC members who had joined the Gerakan Anti-Samy Vellu (GAS) can only return after two years said MIC Youth chief T. Mohan. He said the party’s constitution barred sacked members from returning before then. Even so, Mohan said it would be up to the Central Working Committee (CWC) to decide if it wanted to accept GAS members. However, Mohan said he opposed these people being allowed to rejoin the MIC. He said accepting GAS members back would convey the wrong message to the party’s grassroots. “These GAS members are unpredictable and eventually if they have problems with future president Datuk G. Palanivel, they may form GAP or Gerakan Anti Palanivel to oppose him,” he said after officiating at the closing ceremony of the Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu football tournament here on Saturday. The GAS had dissolved itself, following the announcement by Samy Vellu that he would step down as MIC president. GAS convenor, former MIC Youth deputy chief, V. Mugilan said it was pointless to keep the movement going with Samy Vellu’s departing as party chief. It was reported that Mugilan, former CWC members - K.P. and G. Kumar Aamaan - had asked the MIC to take them back. On another matter, Mohan said the party had received more than 6,000 applicants from Indian PKR members who wanted to join. “We are wary of these applicants. We will check their backgrounds before accepting them,” he said.
***Samy Vellu Steps Down, Palanivel Takes Over As MIC Chief KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 6 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu on Monday stepped down as MIC president after holding the post for 31 years, and handed it over to his deputy Datuk G. Palanivel.

The 74-year-old former Works Minister told a press conference after chairing his last Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting that vice-president and Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam has been appointed as deputy president.

He said the decision to make Palanivel the eighth party president and Dr Subramaniam his deputy was made by the CWC.

Samy Vellu took over in 1979 after the death of its sixth president Tan Sri V. Manickavasagam.

Palanivel, 61, the Deputy Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities, was Samy Vellu's former press secretary.
