Yesterday, all three Tamil dailies reported that Kapar MP YB Manikavasagam (PKR) had decided to quit his post as Selangor Deputy PKR Chief, if no serious action is taken against those responsible for demolishing the Sri Maha Kaliamman Temple in Ampang. For a day at least, it seemed as though the newly minted YB was a man worthy of respect.
Today however, Malaysiakini reports that he is not going to quit after all. “Manikavasagam will retain his post as PKR deputy liaison chief for Selangor following the suspension of the person behind the demolition,” his secretary is reported saying in Malaysiakini.
Who are you people taking for a ride lah? First one PKR MP comes out to say the temple was brought down by their own committee. Then another hero, YB Xavier, says it was just a shrine, not a temple. I wonder if he would have said something similar if it was a church. Then the PKR government accepted that it was their fault and apologized. But of course, they conveniently blamed the MPAJ enforcement officers.
Now, Manikavasagam takes the drama one level higher. For God's sake... the officer was suspended for ONE WEEK! That too during the Raya break, which is about a week anyway! When contacted, the officer even said that he had not even received any suspension notice, and is away on Raya holiday. Some punishment this is!
Notice how the menteri besar has been very silent on this issue. He must have a big fat ketupat in his mouth. Indians not important enough for you anymore Tan Sri?
Yesterday, MIC Youth protested outside the Menteri Besar's office. They handed a memo to his political secretary, but still not a word from him. It was heartwarming to see Indians wearing Makkal Sakthi and Hindraf uniforms standing in unity with those from the MIC.
The fact is, the PKR led Selangor government has cheated the Indian community. After winning the majority of the Indian votes in Selangor by championing the demolition of a temple by the previous government, after promising the world to Indians, you have failed to deliver! PKR TIPU MASYARAKAT INDIA!
