After 54 years should Malaysian Indians still keep nambikai (faith) in BN govern

National: Politics
Senator S. Ramakrishnan
26/1/2012

Each time the PM is hard pressed by some scandal or allegation by PR, some offers are promised for the Indian community. Last week PM Datuk Najib announced that Datuk Palanivel is now the lead minister. Datuk Palanivel the MIC president is already the ministerfor the socio-economic development of the Indian community in the PMO.


I wonder what difference it makes now. At the same occasion in Puchong SRJK(T) kinrara, Datuk Najib called all Tamil educationist to come out with a blueprint on how to take Tamil schools forward. This clearly shows the government does not have any policy framework to improvise Tamil schools or for that matter Indian community after 54 years of rule. UMNO has robbed the future of one generation of Indian students who did not have proper facilities and support from government. Thanks to the other component parties of BN. The BN government allowed Tamil schools to continue this far because of Indian votes. They know that Tamil school is close to the heart of every Tamil and closing Tamil school will be political suicide. But they wanted Tamil schools to die on its own without them closing it. Fortunately the Indian community supported it till today.      
 
PM also announced that government had allocated RM340 million for physical and infrastructure development for Tamil schools across the nation. He said, in terms of management and administration, the government had invested about RM2 billion for Tamil schools since 2009. If these monies were spent on Tamil schools, they will be better off than national type schools. I wish the lead minister or the prime minister gives a breakdown of the billions spent. All these monies were spent without a proper blue print. We hear from MIC ministers and PM that millions and now billions spent on the 524 Tamil schools, still 322 schools are in private land and get minimal support. I am puzzled how they spent so much money and yet physical and living conditions of the 322 schools are in dilapidated conditions. 
 
The passing rate of in UPSR examination in Tamil schools is 50-53%. Which is low compared with national and Chinese schools. Many studies were made and presented but the government was not bothered to follow through it. Many UMNO leaders have said that they don’t need Indian votes. They were winning big. Now that the Chinese voters want a political change and Malay voters too have realized that with all the bumiputra policies, Malays are still poor and vulnerable to economic changes.  Educated Malays who form a large section in Malay society are thinking beyond the UMNO political propaganda.
 
Indian society should learn to remain politically relevant. We cannot afford to be on the wrong side of political changes. Malaysian Indians should not depend on the PM to offer goodies now and then. We need government policy changes that take us as citizens of this country and therefore entitled to equal treatment. Non Malays were disqualified in the offer of scholarships, job opportunities, government contracts and GLCs. Malaysian policies are worse than apartheid. UMNO comes out with policies that will deliberately disqualify the non Malays in securing contracts or anything from government. That racist, nefarious and hypocritical is UMNO. Yet they have no qualms in accepting sin tax from gambling and alcohol that are paid by non Malays.
 
It is timely now for a new blue print and development plan for Tamil schools to be submitted to both PR and BN. Tamil schools need to be transformed into a center where students also learn soft and social skills, positive attitude and become thinkers. Tamil school students must be successful in secondary school and beyond. Students should not end with Tamil education but make Tamil a global language for others to learn Tamil langauge. The negative influence of MIC must be wiped and removed from Tamil schools. A new blue print in the changing political and economic environment is urgently needed. It’s now or never
