Settle Maika missing funds first, MIC told

The MIC president S.Samy Vellu and his son, Maika Holdings Bhd chief executive officer S.V.Pari have yet to give their explanations to Indian community who are also investors and shareholders over the mishandling of Maika’s investments and its funds.

The Indian community had been waiting for generations for Maika to answer their questions which were left unanswered for decades.

Samy Vellu and son, you had taken away all the hard earned money of the Indian community and did not return them despite many such requests to do so. If there are any MIC leaders ho had question the Maika missing funds, you just shut them off or sack them from the party in order to cover up the theft.

You told the party members and the Indian community that you are in firm control and no one can challenge or question you authority. Now you had lost your ministerial position and the Sungai Siput parliamentary seat and you still want to cling on to the party president’s position. Shame on you!

The position of party president does not belong to you. If you want to continue hanging on to the position, then amend the party constitution by creating a new position of party life president so that you can lead the party until you pass away one day.

Samy Vellu and MIC ought to settle the Maika Holdings case first. Do not interfere in the Kampung Buah Pala matter as you are not fit to do so. You are no longer the legitimate representative of the Indian community and so does the MIC of yours.

The Malaysian Indian community of today still lacks behind in all fields and sectors just because MIC only cares for the elite Indian leaders and its top business associates. MIC failed to assist and address the poor and needy ones and for decades they had suffered so much until they could not bare it anymore and thus, the crime rate increased.

Then Umno and the police force put all the blame on the community, got Kugan killed while in detention, got Sujatha poisoned maybe because she had some information leading to Maika’s case and so on.

Do not blame anyone else but MIC who had created a group of political warlords amongst their elites to take control of the equities of the Indian community but not benefiting the others who are not part of them.

Therefore, Samy Vellu and MIC cannot speak on behalf of the Indian community anymore as all of you are not fit to do so. You and the MIC only represent the “golongan bangsawan India”.

If you claim that you represent the Indian community, then why are there so many Indian based parties today? Why did the Indian Progressive Front (IPF), Malaysian United Indian Party (MUIP), Makkal Sakti Party (MSP), Human Rights Party (HRP), Malaysian Indian Democratic Action Force (Mindraf), Kongres India Muslim Malaysia (Kimma) and the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) emerge in the middle of the community? Are you able to explain all these in detail? We are certain that you cannot.

Just leave the affairs of the Indian community to PKR, DAP, the PAS Indian Supporters Club and the Sri Murugan Center to deal with, and stop claiming that you are legally representing the Malaysian Indians. You are not at all.

MIC is only for the elites and not for the ordinary folks like us. Do not interfere in the Kampung Buah Pala matter anymore. Stay away and do not create anymore trouble.

Putting our angers and frustrations into People’s Power

This month July 2009, our entire nation is shocked, irritated, disappointed, ashamed and angry. We demand for straight answers, we wanted to know what and why it happened.

An innocent young man was murdered, a young lady who was supposed to get married has been widowed, an unborn child has been made fatherless and denied his father and a family has been traumatized and handicapped.

We Malaysians want to know the truth and motives that lead to this tragic moment and have all those who are involved in this murder to face the court of law and justice.

Unfortunately, the BN federal government have yet to commence its probe onto the young man’s death openly and transparent. It had already shown signs of failure and its insincerity towards resolving this case.

A magistrate level court has been assigned to conduct an inquest on the death, while the royal commission will be established to only look into the investigative methods and process of the MACC.

These shows tat the BN federal government is not serious in wanting to solve this case with transparency and to serve justice. By having two different entities to investigate two kinds of situation shows that the BN federal government wanted to break up the chain of links between the MACC and the young man’s death.

In the end the results and findings of these two investigative bodies will also be in conflict since the magistrate inquest and the royal commission goes by their separate ways and means to conduct their inquiries.

By then, can you or are we able to see the effectiveness of these two investigation that will sum up their results and findings that will lead to the arrest of those murderers and be brought to justice.

Pakatan Rakyat is not manipulating, provoking and politicizing this issue as claimed by Umno. It is the duty of all members of Pakatan Rakyat to come out to help whoever or any other persons whom they saw being treated in an unjust or inhumane way to seek justice.

It was Umno and its wholly-owned press who are trying to manipulate this case into racial tension by publishing articles supporting the death of the victim, condemning those who came forward to seek justice, it was Umno who is trying to use race sentiments to create unrest and use it to their advantage.

If the magistrate inquest and the royal commission really prove to be ineffective, al of us will be very disappointed, ashamed, and angry but this does not mean we will hit back physically and protest in a violent manner as did Umno all this while.
We are all matured enough to think, analyze, and to make our decisions and judgments, then translate it into votes at the ballot boxes in our next 13th general elections which will be held in three years time. We are very patient and can wait and when the time comes we will remember what the BN had done to our people.

We will participate in the People’s Power to show this BN dictatorship that we already had enough of their nonsense.

Let’s Just Change It!

Plot hatched to topple State Government

Currently rumored around in the Selangor state are allegations that most of the state executive councilors of Pakatan Rakyat are endured in a corrupt practice to swindle state funds and allocation for personal use.

As the result, the MACC efficiently stepped in and round up the entire Selangor state government for questioning. In the middle of the interrogation, one of the state government officials was being found murdered at the Selangor MACC headquarters.

Then a blog surfaced recently claiming that the named state Exco members were part of the corrupt group of high ranking state officials that had murdered Teo Beng Hock in their effort to cover up the alleged activities.

Allegations after allegations, it seems that some parties out are trying to hatch a systematic plot to topple the state government and to take over the administration by force or violence means by inciting wild allegations and pressure against the current state government which is run by Pakatan Rakyat.

The police did nothing while the MACC is doing their best to discredit the state government, while the federal government which is still under the BN pulled its strings from behind scene. It is a very clear and open secret that the BN federal government is gearing up its plot to take over the industrialized state from Pakatan Rakyat after their successful coup d’etat that toppled the Perak state government last February.

It is a very clear fact that the BN-led federal government had wanted to avenge Pakatan Rakyat over their 8 March 2008 general elections grave defeat last year by seeking all kinds of ways and means to destabilize the Pakatan-rule state governments which lead to the collapse of the Pakatan enclave in Perak.

Besides Perak, the BN is also eyeing to destabilize two industrialize states namely Selangor and Penang, where Selangor is currently being targeted for alleged corrupt activities and Penang being embroiled in a minor racial tension following an attempt by an Umno-linked developer to evict and demolish an Indian based traditional village on an acquired land to make way for a mega project which was previously approved by the then BN Gerakan-led state government.

Apart from that, Umno is also pushing hard on Gerakan to launch a large scale assault and allegation against the Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng alleging that he is corrupted and rented a high price residence to make way for a “renovation” of his evacuated official residence Seri Mutiara.

BN had every resource, like the police, the MACC, the military, the judiciary, the intelligence apparatus, the mainstream media and whatever powers they got to engineer their plans to discredit, destabilize and to topple the Pakatan state government if they want to.

But what did the Pakatan Rakyat have? Only the support from the people and our conscience! Pakatan Rakyat had in fact nothing to defend themselves against any onslaught or coup attempt from the BN all-mighty powers.

Therefore, Pakatan Rakyat leaders from PKR, DAP and PAS need sit together to take on a bigger role by establishing a security force of their own.

Why two inquiries for probe Teo’s death?

According to the BN cabinet decision, two types of inquiry would be established to probe the death of Teo Beng Hock who was found murdered in the MACC building last week.

A royal commission (RC) would be formed and assigned to find out MACC’s investigation methods while a magistrate’s inquest (MI) would be tasked to investigate the cause of Teo’s death.

First of all why would the BN federal government to establish two separate bodies to investigate this case? What was the actual motive of doing this? The BN federal government did not give any reasons on their decision to separately conduct the investigation on MACC and into Teo’s death.

Perhaps the BN federal government did not want to embarrass themselves (who earlier initiated the upgrade the entity of the MACC) and the MACC as well. And that is why they did not want an RC to probe the MACC directly on Teo’s death. So, they just appoint an inquest at magistrate level to conduct the investigation.

We are certain that once the RC and MI start their assignments, some of their reports and finding would be conflicting in a way and fact that these two entities conduct their investigations separately. And when their reports and findings are conflicting, how is the federal government going to make their decisions and what kind of action will they take as well as to base on who’s report in order to sum up their next course of action?

Just because there are two separate RC and MI to partially probe into Teo’s death, we are most certain that these two bodies would be ineffective and powerless to determine any actions on the culprits and those who are involve in Teo’s murder. And when these two entities are powerless and ineffective to come out with their solutions, then the BN federal government would step in to have their final say which of course would be in the interest of the MACC and not totally a just and fair one for Teo’s family, fiancée and our people.

Therefore, there are no clear directions and targets for both the RC and MI to begin and achieve because the responsibilities and the subject matter has been separately assigned. Is this the intention of the BN federal government that the MACC investigation method and Teo’s death would not be linked and if these two are not linked, how are they going to determine the cause of Teo’s death?

In the end, will BN say he committed suicide or he accidentally fell off while walking near the window? The question here is not only Teo’s death, because they are also others who had suffered and died while being detained or investigated before this.

We want justice and empowerment of human rights to ensure such power abuse would not repeat anymore. The problem is can BN provide us justice and human rights?

Report lodged against Guan Eng at MACC Penang

We heard in disgust that the Penang Gerakan youth led by its state vice-chairman H’ng Khoon Leng had lodged a report at MACC against our Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng when he had refused H’ng’s demand to reveal issues related to his rented house after he moved out of Seri Mutiara which has been infested by termites.

Guan Eng was right that these Gerakan youth leaders are acting like kindergarten kids. In fact, we would say these Gerakan youth leaders are mere hypocrites. They claimed that they are here to fight corruptions, to uphold justice and to be a constructive opposition in the state.

The Penang Gerakan youth leaders are making a fool of themselves about this matter. Have they looked at their own political master clearly so far? Umno leaders had stolen and played with our people’s billions of Ringgit in public funds, staying and enjoying their lifestyles in costly bungalows and mansions built with their ill-gotten money.

Are these Gerakan youth leaders so blind until they could not see all these power abuses within the BN coalition? Or they are merely keeping quiet about Umno’s misdeeds and wrong in order to protect their money and wealth too? There is also another reason, Gerakan is afraid of Umno’s ketuananhood and supremacy.

Whenever they are any expose which are affecting Umno, Gerakan would be called in to act as an agent to divert our people’s attention on Umno’s crimes and power abuses by making a hell of fuss and noise in the Penang state government and our Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Because Gerakan is still performing its slavery dutifully for Umno and helping them to advance its supremacy, Gerakan will be dead for good in Penang. Gerakan and BN will never ever again be able to return to power in Penang.

Gerakan will become like PPP soon, a mosquito party still day dreaming of regaining Penang in the next general elections.

A tragic death of democracy

The special assistant to a Selangor state executive councillor, Teo Beng Hock’s death caused by MACC is tragically outrageous and the democracy of our nation is now at stake.

The MACC (Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission) had lost all its credibility and the trust of our people and they had also brought shame to our nation. Despite its new entity and upgrade recently, the MACC still practices selective political persecution by working closely with Umno to target and destroy democracy, justice, freedom and equality.

In fact MACC had also became a component member of the Barisan Nasional (BN) answerable only to the Umno top leaders and not the parliament who earlier enacted an Act to established the anti graft commission.

We, the people are watching all over you now. MACC had in fact demonstrated its one-sided policies by practicing selective persecution against members of Pakatan Rakyat for the so-called “abuses” claimed by Umno while corruptions of Umno leaders, ministers and officials are simply ignored and swept right under the carpet for good. This is a total cover-up. Why? Because MACC is part of the BN coalition at the federal level.

While the real culprits (Umno leaders, ministers and officials) are enjoying their lifestyles in big mansions and palaces from the money that they had stolen from our people, our socio-people oriented Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives are often being targeted as they are guilty criminals or terrorists.

With Beng Hock’s death caused by the MACC, we should say that there should be no more trust onto them anymore, no matter what sort of reasons they intend to give or had already given. MACC cannot avoid and run away from the people.

MACC used the taxpayers’ money to advance the interest and the political will of Umno in order to counter the rising popularity and influence of the recently emerged Pakatan Rakyat coalition of opposition parties (PKR, DAP and PAS).

Umno cannot do it by itself via a democratic ways and means and that is why they are using the judiciary, police, military and MACC to curb democracy, justice, equality and limit our freedom as well.

Umno and BN had committed a mass genocide against our people and the nation as a whole. And if we don’t vote them out, they are going to turn our entire nation into a battleground with civil unrest one day.

So, remember, Vote Them Out in the next general elections.

NTV7 host given a warning over Najib’s scorecard

We learned in disgust that the Point of View program host for ntv7 Florence Looi was unreasonably given a warning letter just because she seeks a score opinion for Najib’s first 100 days as a prime minister which was rated C and D by guests invited to her program for their views.

The two guests who were invited to the talk show are writer Syed Akhbar Ali and The Malaysian Insider consultant editor Leslie Lau who later gave scores of C and D to the Najib administration.

There you are another one of Najib’s 1Malaysia concept. Freedom of speech and opinion are being censored in such way. Is this part of Najib’s 1Malaysia plan to further curb democracy and views of our people?

We believe that most of the media centers and companies in this country are being forced to act on directives from the higher authorities so that their business licenses and permits are not withdrawn or revoked.

Therefore, staffs of these media centers and companies are always reminded to sing words of praise and worships to the BN government leaders. The BN government is still in a denial mode. They cannot accept truth, criticisms, including constructive ones even if it is a fact and such actions are deemed absurd, childish and it clearly reflects on the immaturity of the BN government leaders, particularly from those of Umno’s.

All the while, BN and Umno cannot and will never take criticisms sportingly in order to correct and improve from all those negative views and comments. BN and Umno always emphasize that they are on the top and their policies and methods are always correct. The people must follow their directive even if they do not like it.

This is Umno’s supremacist policies and our country is on its way to dictatorship. With BN and Umno continuing its governance, Malaysia is moving backward and not forward.

Gerakan making a crack out of CM’s rented house

The Penang Gerakan is making a hell of noise over Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s departure from his official residence Seri Mutiara and his subsequent shifting into a rented house.

Guan Eng’s departure from his official residence, reasoned that the white ants had infested the entire building and it would not be save for the chief minister to continue staying in the said residence.

Then Guan Eng moved into a rented house to await repairs to be carried out on his government residence. Is that wrong? What are the elements of corruption as claimed by the Penang Gerakan leaders and where is your evidence which led to this “corrupt practice” which you all had mentioned.

We wish to remind Gerakan, of all the years of their rule in Penang, why didn’t they root out the corruptions and wrongdoings of their political master Umno? These Umno leaders are hundred times more corrupt then anyone else in this country.

In fact the entire BN coalition is corrupt. Gerakan, like Umno is also still in denial mode. They cannot see what are the wrongs and negatives in themselves but would rather make unpleasant statements and remarks on others.

Gerakan, as been over a decade being part of the corrupt institution, BN, Umno and its governance and therefore, they are not fit to talk about anti-corruption, transparency or accountability.

Gerakan needs to clean its own backyard first!

Kg Buah Pala : Tsu Koon should come out to resolve the crisis

Come on, Dr Koh Tsu Koon, it doesn't mean when you are now a minister in the federal government, you need not care about your homestate anymore.

We all know what you had done, and we are sure that you also know. So why hide in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya and refuse to come out like a man to help to resolve all the mess created by your previous state government?

Tsu Koon, you should not put the blame on the pesent state government and manipulate this issue into a racial one. You are not being transparent on your past doings.

The Khir Toyo scandal, corruption and power abuse

First, the Istana Zakaria of former Port Klang state assemblyman Datuk Zakaria Md Deros and now another palatial palace of former Selangor Menteri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo just surface a few days ago.

After Dr Mohd Khir, who else? We are certainly sure that the rest of the Umno leaders do also own such palaces. These are the results of businesses, contracts, favours and rewards that they had received during their tenure in offices respectively.

Looks like these Umno leaders are fond of wealth and building palaces and mansions here and there to tell the people of their extensive wealth and powers they possess.

So what did the other BN component parties like MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP, PBB, SUPP, PBS, SPDP, Upko, LDP and PBRS have to say? Well, they said nothing and all seems to be keeping quiet about the power abuses of their leading component party, Umno. This is because Umno owns a ketuananship that other BN component parties do not enjoy.

But when our Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng left the termite infested official residence, Seri Mutiara to move into a state subsidized rented bungalow, all the BN component parties are making the hell of noise saying that Guan Eng is wasting public funds by renting a bungalow and not wanting to stay in Seri Mutiara anymore.

So, who cause the Seri Mutiara to be infested with termites? Shall we say Gerakan and MCA as they were the members of the previous state government in Penang? Is Gerakan or MCA trying to say that Guan Eng had abused his powers by moving into a bungalow from Seri Mutiara? They wanted Guan Eng to continue staying in Seri Mutiara until it collapse one day and injure him and his family members.

What do MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP, PBB, SUPP, PBS, SPDP, Upko, LDP and PBRS have to say about their political master Umno who spend billions of Ringgit in building and constructing palaces and mansions for their top leaders and divisional chairmen? Are those leaders in MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP, PBB, SUPP, PBS, SPDP, Upko, LDP and PBRS too blind to see all those wrong doings committed by Umno leaders?

Therefore, we urge MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP, PBB, SUPP, PBS, SPDP, Upko, LDP and PBRS not to be so hypocrite and look at the mess in the BN coalition first before they talk about leaders and governments of Pakatan Rakyat.

In fact, the leaders of MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP, PBB, SUPP, PBS, SPDP, Upko, LDP and PBRS are not fit to talk about competency, accountability and transparency or whatever KPI because they are already part of the dirty dozens in the BN fold.

Kg Buah Pala: Gerakan ran into hiding

Come on Gerakan, you started the Kampung Buah Pala crisis and you are now running away, washing off your hands just like that.

Gerakan, please remember, no matter how much you wash your hands or how far you run to hide yourselves, our people will come after you all. In order to cover up your previous bad deeds, you are now capitalizing on the entire situation by blaming the Penang DAP-led state government for its failure to help those affected residents who will be evicted by an Umno-link property developer soon.

Where is Senator Dr Koh Tsu Koon, the former Penang chief minister who is now the minister in the prime minister’s department in the BN federal government! Do not think that you could escape from the people by staying in Kuala Lumpur to become a minister.

Prior to the Gerakan president’s defeat in the last general elections, Dr Koh as the then chief minister of Penang had purposely approved the sale of the Kampung Buah Pala land to a politically link property developer without even a single thought of the welfare of the people over there.

And recently the prime minister Najib Razak had also announced that they will not assist the residents of Kampung Buah Pala and no funds will be channeled to the affected residents because this is not a national issue. So once Najib said this, Dr Koh and his Gerakan party will think that they are now safe.

Our people are saddened and gravely disappointed that those who had contributed towards the destruction of Kampung Buah Pala is now claiming to be champions of the people and causing a lot of instability in the Penang state. Besides, some Umno are also believed to be helping Gerakan make this issue into a racial one so they could further capitalize on the situation.

By the way, is Umno trying to launch another coup d’etat here in Penang by stirring up racial tensions in this disputed village? Who knows their plans are ongoing.

Therfore, Pakatan Rakyat need to beef up their state security or else you may end up like your counterparts in Perak.

1Malaysia, a BN political ploy

1Malaysia, 1Malaysia is mentioned everywhere now. The federal government under the BN-Umno is now working round the clock every second to ensure that our people are one hundred percent brainwashed into adopting this idea which is seen as a mere political ploy by Umno to cover up their defeat, weaknesses and their racist chauvinistic political strategies.

Just right behind 1Malaysia campaign, BN-Umno is organising a major offensive in Pakatan rule states by clearly encouraging 2Kelantan, 2Kedah, 2 Penang and 2 Selangor policies. Their 2Perak offensive has been successful where the Pakatan state government was overthrown by an Umno-sponsored coup d'etat on early February this year.

Let us look at their 2Kelantan, 2Kedah, 2 Penang and 2 Selangor policies right now. In order to rival the Pakatan state governments, the BN established a Federal Development Department (Jabatan Pembangunan Persekutuan) in each of these states with a state director taking charge of each of the states. A kindly of "de-facto state government" if you study the BN's intention carefully.

Then down below, the BN also established rival entities to challenge the state appointed offices like the Penghulu which are state appointed, is rival by a Penghulu Persekutuan. That means each of these areas are now having two Penghulus, one is a state while the other is a federal appointed.

Then we go down to Village Security and Development Committees (JKKK) which is also under the states' jurisdiction are now being rivaled by BN's federal appointed Federal Village Security and Development Committees (JKKKP). That means all those kampungs and pekans in the Pakatan rule states now have two kinds of JKKKs administering the respective areas.

What is the BN-Umno trying to prove actually? Wasting public funds and monies to by creating all these additional positions and paying them with allowances just like that? Does the Federal Development Department (Jabatan Pembangunan Persekutuan), Penghulu Persekutuan and the JKKKP really have any legal statures to rival the states and areas?

This is a very big No! The establishment of Federal Development Department (Jabatan Pembangunan Persekutuan), Penghulu Persekutuan and the JKKKP are totally against the state constitutions because these positions are de-facto ones and they did not have any legal means to establish at all. These entities are just like the current Perak rebel state government established by Umno in aftermath of their coup d'etat.

Therefore, BN's 1Malaysia is only a ploy to distract our people from their real plans behind which is aimed to split our people, to create disunity, disharmony and to confuse the entire nation.

BN and Umno are the ones who are anti-establishments.
