Thumbs up for Pakatan, shame on HINDRAF!

This is an email from one Chandra Bose.

The Sitiawan Dindings Indian Association matter goes to show that Pakatan Rakyat representatives are more effective champions of the rakyat.

Education Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has agreed to cancel the acquisition of the 2.2ha land belonging to the Dindings Indian Association in Manjung for a school project.

The hard work put in by M Kulasegaran, Prof P Ramasamy and P Gobalakrishnan with the support of Indians in the district contributed to stopping the land from being taken over by the federal government.

It was the pressure exerted by the rakyat that eventually forced the committee and the MIC to rescind the move. If the Pakatan Rakyat had not taken the initiative, the land would have been surely sold to the federal government, and the property as a landmark for Indians, would have been lost forever.

What is most glaring is the fact that the so-called Indian 'champions' Hindraf/HRP-Makkal Sathi Party was completely silent on this matter. This so-called vociferous spokesorganisation of Indians have lately become quite docile in taking Indian issues.

In the case of Bukit Jalil estate, HRP merely agitiated for the workers without working out a solution for them.

They are quite vehement in their criticism of Pakatan Rakyat, they refuse to say anything about the MIC.
