      I was thinking about it this evening and it occured to me that I passed the MCA building on my way to KLCC. There were a lot of Chinese having a function. So it’s not only the Indians who vote BN, the Chinese do too.

    Hi All Down there in KL, well wishes and keep on going. Eventhough the crowd is not out there,
    but you brave Malaysian Indians have shown that you have bravely lead to show this UMNOputras
    that they are scared that the next 13th GE will not be in favour for BN.

    Let them put in police custody, hundreds of Mahatma Ganti, thousands are behind. Even supporters of MIC
    and others are with your dear heart. It is the only ball-carriers and polishes are behind, proclaiming that
    they are the champions of Indian Community.

    Well wishes ” Makkal Sakti”

    M.P.Nabhan

    LOL@Benny. You do have a point, bro.

    Good stuff down here, mission control! 🙂

    Thank you for this live coverage.Our thoughts are with the Protesters esp.those arrested.They can stop the messenger but not the message. The Malaysian Indians are the most marginalised in the country despite their immense contribution to the country’s development.

    The Government should treat all the ethnic races fairly esp in recruiting staff for Government ,GLC jobs.

    They should also hear out the grievences of the Hindraf group concerning Interlok as its not in National interest to stir up racial sentiments by labelling & stereotyping certain ethnic race.

    Corruption & racism are the two biggest disease in Malaysia,which are legacy from the dark days of Mahathir and should be rejected by all Malaysians.

    1 MALAYSIA IS ONLY ADVERTISEMENT, IT’S PSYCHOLOGICAL GAME LAH. ONLY ORG KAMPUNG, IGNORANT SUPPORTERS/VOTERS WILL BELIEVE IT. CHINESE ALWAYS EXPRESS THRU’ THE BALLOT BOX, NO MATTER WHAT THIS GOVERN SAID, CHINESE WILL STILL VOTE FOR PR BCOS’ WE HATE PEOPLE MAKE US LOOK STUPID. THEY F^^^K^^^ TWIST THE CASES TO PROTECT THEIR BOSSES WHO HAS F^^^K OUR MONEY BIG TIME. HOPE SOMEONE OUT THERE IS GENIUS ENOUGH TO TRACE AND EXPOSE POLITICIANS WITH BIG BANK ACCTS OVERSEA. MAKE IT A GUINESS BOOK OF RECORD.
