Samy lashed out loud

Samy Vellu labelled Utusan Malaysia as a 'racist' publication which went against the 1Malaysia concept espoused by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

"I don't know how much of Umno's intervention is involved. But it is usual for Utusan to act like the big brother and hit everyone flat and they feel happy about it...," said Samy Vellu.

"I don't know if this Umno leadership would stoop down to this level (of masterminding such a report)... in any case, whatever Utusan has done is not going to disturb us," he added.

Samy Vellu stressed that MIC members and the Indian community do not believe the news that appear in the daily.

"I give you an example, the cow-head incident, we all condemned the demonstration thinking that it will bring about racial misunderstanding and brew trouble in the country

"But that news, they don't carry. They carry news in support of the cow-head demonstration, they are determined to do something that is detrimental to others rather than what is true," he said.

"Secondly, as and when you give them some news, the news must be to their taste and not the truth, then only they will publish.

"Nowadays, I don't call their reporters anymore because we feel it is sort of a very racial paper which does not contribute to national interests," he added.

Samy Vellu also lashed out at Mahathir. He said it was Mahathir who excelled in the art of 'destroying deputies'.

Samy Vellu said while he had one deputy for 25 years, Mahathir had four during his 22-year tenure.

"Who really destroyed the deputies? He is a master in destroying his deputies. I don't destroy any deputies," he stressed.

Samy Vellu was also asked to comment on whether a MIC leader who came into power riding on the support of Umno would be subservient to that party and not be effective in defending the Indian community.

Training his guns on Subramaniam, the president said: "He is already subservient to Mahathir, I don't know to what extent he is subservient to Umno... he needs somebody to push him forward. He can't stand on his own legs."

"Is this the type of leadership that the Indian community needs... a community that is suffering from poverty and just attempting to come up... it needs a leader who can talk and bring about change," he added.

I have no sympathy for Samy. Neither do I like the idea of Dr M interfering in the elections of another party.

The old man should stay retired. He is causing more disagreements.

I agree with what Samy Vellu said about Mahathir and development. Samy Vellu should be given benefit of doubt of his past and he should be given a chance to leader Malaysia, as Prime Minister...

Well Crime Minister post is also boleh!!!

Samy Vellu as Prime Minister of Malaysia... interesting history for our future kids.
