Do not damage the full potential and future of SRJK(T) Effingham

27th July 2012

Do not damage the full potential and future of SRJK(T) Effingham - return the land to the school
I am completely disappointed with Dato Seri Palanivel's announcement on Effingham on Monday this week. Instead of correcting an injustice committed by MIC by stealing the land from the school, he is now trying to hoodwink the public with his announcement that MIC will build a hostel for poor students and a multi-purpose hall/ sports centre on the land to be used by all the 523 Tamil schools in the country.
Palanivel needs to understand and recognise first that MIC should never have made the application to the BN Selangor government in 1999 to take 3 acres of the original 6 acre site allocated by the developer for a primary school.  MIC should instead have insisted with the BN government, which they are part of, that SRJK (T) Effingham was entitled to 6 acres like all the primary schools in the area including the nearby SRJK (C) Puay Chai which is sitting on 6 acres of land.  Instead MIC looked selfishly at its own interest and applied for the land to build its party headquarters. As far as I am concerned, this was a foul theft of the highest order of the land from the school.
Today because of the public pressure to return the land to the school, MIC is forced to give up its original plan to build its party headquarters. They also know that as long as the Pakatan Rakyat rules Selangor, they will never be allowed to build that party headquarters.
So Palanivel's announcement has no sincerity. It is simply a meaningless exercise in damage control which does not address the real issue - the need for the 3 acres for SRJK (T) Effingham to ensure that that generations of  Effingham Tamil school children have a decent school with decent facilities.
It is ridiculous to expect that 523 Tamil schools all over the country can enjoy the use of a hostel located in Bandar Utama. It is a foolish proposition. Equally foolish is the idea that the Tamil schools all over the country can enjoy the sports facilities that the MIC intend to build on the 3 acres.  Such facilities should be available close to the Tamil schools wherever they are.
Palanivel is burying his head in the sand like the proverbial ostrich and refusing to see the need of SRJK (T) Effingham is paramount. The school does not need a hostel or those sports facilities. Right now they cannot even have a proper 100 meter running track because MIC stole those 3 acres. Why is he talking nonsense about building sports facilities? What SRJK (T) Effingham needs is the 3 acres of land so that the school can provide decent facilities to its 500 students. It needs the 3 acres so that Tamil parents in the area can see that the school can provide decent facilities of an acceptable standard to the children there. Only then will more Tamil parents be encouraged to send their children there.
What Palanivel and MIC are doing now by refusing to return the 3 acres is to destroy the full potential of SRJK (T) Effingham to best educate generations of Tamil children. This statement by Palanivel only further confirms the hypocrisy of MIC when they claim themselves as so-called guardians of the interest of the Indian community in Malaysia.

Public debates on racial lines must be rejected

PRESS RELEASE: Public debates on racial lines must be rejected
We refer to recent calls for a public debate between Indian leaders from the MIC and Pakatan Rakyat. We categorically reject debates between political leaders organised purely on racial lines. Single-race debates are an unhealthy reflection of the BN's race-based and 'divide and rule' politics, which has been rejected in toto by Pakatan Rakyat. The problems faced by the marginalised Indian community is a key national issue, and not just a matter which concerns Malaysian Indians alone. Any public debate upon this issue should involve all interested and responsible parties, irrespective of their race. The MIC, which is subservient to UMNO, is powerless and incapable of bringing positive change and development to the Indian community. Any debate solely with MIC Indian leaders on the future of the Indian community is an exercise in futility. Further, it is UMNO which has held real power in the BN and is to blame for the serious and long unresolved problems faced by the Indian community today. It is time UMNO stopped deceiving the public that the MIC can effectively represent Indians or resolve their manifold problems. These problems include poverty, lack of educational opportunities, poor employment prospects, disproportionate crime rate, statelessness and an inequitable share of the national wealth. As such we call upon the UMNO/BN to make available senior UMNO Cabinet Ministers for a public debate with Pakatan Rakyat leaders upon the problems and future of the Indian community. This would afford all Malaysians an opportunity to evaluate both parties' plans and commitment to resolve the problems of the Indian community. In view of the urgency and importance of the matter, we call for a response from UMNO/BN to our invitation for a public debate within 48 hours.
