You have to hand it to Dato Seri Samy Vellu a/l Sangalimuthu!
He is the smartest Malaysian Indian politician to date. He has held his fort as the incumbent Malaysian Indian Congress Party President since 1979!
No matter what anybody says about him and the way he has been lambasted by everyone from the rubber tapper in the estates right up to the Cabinet Ministers level, he doesn’t give a damn about anyone!
His iron grip on the Ministry of Works, Government of Malaysia is like welded to the seat permanently!
No one can take it away from him it seems. Except maybe when the Angel of Death comes a calling!
Observers say even that is suspect! The soul might be taken away but they would have to use a jackhammer to prise the man from his ministerial seat!
Even Tun Dr.Mahathir, his former boss and longest serving Prime Minister of Malaysia
@ (22 years) cannot beat his record!
The spotlight on Dato Seri Samy Vellu has never left the man! He is always in the news for the wrong reasons.
He gives no one no quarter and will not mince his words nor has he ever backed away from a quarrel or war of words!
He is definitely the most ruthless MIC President so far and woe betide whomsoever dares to challenge his presidency!
Lately , he is in the news lambasting the PAC Chairman Datuk Shahrir Samad for daring to take him to task about the RM100,000,000.00 compensation being proposed to be paid to the contractor of the cancelled crooked bridge to nowhere project at the Johore Bahru and Singapore linking causeway!
TV3 cleverly edits and shows the man blowing his top before their Prime News lately!
‘Apa dia ingat kita bodoh ka? Kita bukan bodoh!’ Kita ada mata! Kalau dia mahu, suruh dia mari duduk ini kmenterian! Apa apa prrjek dia kasi lulus, kita kasi jalan!’
Hahahaha! Surely beats watching any sitcoms! Go for it Mr.Samy! Kasi hantam sama dia! 😀
