RM3 mil aid for young Indian entrepreneurs

The Government has allocated RM3 mil to provide financial aid to young Indian entrepreneurs, MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said.
He said that assistance would be channelled through Tekun Nasional, a body under the Ministry of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives and the MIC-owned Social Strategic Foundation (YSS).
Speaking to reporters after a briefing by Tekun managing director Datuk Abdul Rahim Hassan here Thursday, he said loans of RM10,000 each had been approved for three applications to develop their businesses so far.
Samy Vellu said Indians below 40 should use the opportunity to seek the financial assistance from Tekun to upgrade their businesses.
"No one should come and say that the government has not done anything for the Indian community. There are opportunities available," he said.
Samy Vellu said the MIC and YSS would also organise workshops in the respective states to disseminate the information on Tekun to the youths over the next two months.
Abdul Rahim said Tekun, which was set up in 1998, has already disbursed RM90 mil to bumiputras to develop their business and was expanding it to provide assistance to the Indian youths.
He said a decision of the applications would be made within 14 days if all the documents were in order, compared to the previous period of three months.
"Tekun would request additional allocation from the government if the RM3 mil allocation was inadequate," he said.

IPF not joining Pakatan

The Indian Progressive Front (IPF) has no intention of joining Pakatan Rakyat, its acting president Puan Sri Jayashree Pandithan said.
She said that IPF would always be loyal to Barisan Nasional and the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
"We will continue to support him as the leader of the nation and the leader of the ruling Barisan," she said in her maiden press conference at the IPF headquarters in Seri Kembangan.
She took over the presidency of the 20-year-old party early this year from her ailing husband Tan Sri M.G. Pandithan who passed away on May 29.
Jayashree said IPF would continue to perform the duties and responsibilities to the Indian community in the country.
"I have made visits to several states and the members are still intact with the leadership and have pledged their loyalty and support to the leadership. I am determined to focus on the eradication of poverty amongst Indians and creating an educated society besides focusing on the welfare and health issues of the poor," she said.
To a question, she said that IPF still maintains the objective of wanting to be a member of the Barisan, a vision of the late founding president Pandithan.
"I believe MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu would not have any objections to our request to be admitted into the ruling coalition," she said.
Jayashree said that she had already sought a meeting with the Prime Minister but had not received an appointment yet.
She said that the party had filed a writ of summons on July 22 against six former members of IPF for deceiving and confusing the people by using the party's name, flag, letterhead and registration number.
"These members claim to be leaders of IPF Bersatu but the truth is that all their activities had been carried out in the name of IPF Malaysia. They are not a registered party or a society and they are functioning under our name, claiming to be our promoters," she said.
Jayashree said their actions were a serious crime involving theft of the party's name and symbols.
IPF legal adviser S. Selvam said the writ, which was served on the six on Monday, had sought a declaration that they were illegal and an injunction to prevent them from using the IPF name, symbol, letterhead and registration number and RM1mil in damages.

Find out community’s problems, MIC Youth told

MIC Youth leaders must go to the ground to find out the community's problems if the party is to regain ground lost in the March general election.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department S.K. Devamany, in making the call, said many Youth leaders did not perform.
“If this culture continues, we will not be able to gain the trust of the Indian community. Only those who are committed should take up posts in the Youth wing. We don’t need seat warmers,” he said after a two-day brainstorming session for 50 MIC state youth leaders on Sunday.
Devamany, who is Cameron Highlands MP, also briefed the leaders on the current political situation in the country as well as the Government’s efforts to assist the community.
National MIC Youth coordinator T. Mohan admitted there were weaknesses in the wing.
“I admit there are some Youth leaders who have not performed in their states for more than six years but goals have been set for the new state leaders,” he said.
Mohan, who was appointed last month, said leaders who failed to perform effectively would be replaced in the Youth polls scheduled next May.
“I have given them guidelines to carry out in implementing the programmes in their states. If they adhere to them, there is no reason for them not to succeed,” he said.
Mohan, who also urged the leaders in the division and state to be vocal on issues affecting the community, promised to give RM1,000 monthly allocations to the states to carry out their activities.
He said leaders must not be satisfied in getting their activities highlighted in the Tamil newspapers but should also strive to get publicity in English and Malay newspapers as well as television stations.
The Youth leaders discussed ways to rebuild the image of the wing, effective community development and service as well as how to woo 50,000 youths into the party before the year-end.

Charles Santiago berated for ‘taking downDato Seri Samy Vellu’, files report

DAP parliamentarian Charles Santiago lodged a police report today over the incident where he was verbally abused by a group of men for ‘taking down’ MIC president S Samy Vellu.

In Saturday’s incident, some 20 men surrounded the Klang MP and two others. The men verbally abused them and allegedly smashed the side mirror of a vehicle belonging to the politician’s personal assistant Sarah Devaraj.
Relating the incident, Santiago said he, Devaraj and two family members arrived at the Sri Muniandy temple in Port Klang to partake in its 25th year anniversary celebrations.
Upon nearing the temple located in a residential area, they found a Mercedes Benz blocking the road which prevented them from parking any nearer to the temple.
Requests for the Mercedes to be moved elsewhere were unsuccessful as its owner was absent and could not be immediately located. Deveraj then parked her car parallel to the Mercedes and they proceeded to join the temple celebrations.
Upon returning to the car a little after midnight, they found that the right-side mirror of her vehicle had been smashed.
By that time, several men, who had been drinking in front of a nearby house, came out and surrounded the four.
“One of them had even gotten on top of the car and jumped up and down on it,” Santiago told Malaysiakini after lodging his report at the Klang district police headquarters.
“Another shouted at us and said ‘you brought down Samy Vellu,’” he added.
Not taking chances
In the commotion, Devaraj was shoved roughly by one of the men while another threatened a family member for having earlier taken a photograph of the Mercedes.
Santiago said the photograph was taken when one of his constituents sought a photo opportunity with him. The Mercedes was only coincidentally in the background, he added.
The commotion attracted the attention of those in the temple who came out to form a circle around Santiago and his group. They managed to bundle the four into the car and ensured their safe departure.
The arrival of police patrol cars a few minutes later saw to it that no untoward incidents occurred.
Unsure whether it was merely a case of inebriated youth trying to stir trouble or that of real bitterness against the opposition parties for MIC’s dismal performance in the March 8 polls, Santiago said he was lodging the police report to make sure a record of the incident was made.
“A little while earlier that day, we had organised a dialogue between local residents, the district police and the local council on crime prevention.
“Perhaps the incident is unrelated (to the dialogue), but we’re not taking any chances,” he said.

PPP: All Barisan components should merge to form one party

The People's Progressive Party (PPP) is again urging Barisan Nasional component parties to merge into a single entity to mark the change in the country’s political landscape and the recent emergence of a two-party political system.
PPP president Datuk M. Kayveas said the proposal by PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat that PAS and Umno be dissolved made sense, but it needed to be extended to all Barisan components.
“In Malaysia, there is no need to have several political parties, just have Barisan, and Pakatan Rakyat. If this transpires, PPP agrees with the proposal by Tok Guru (Nik Abdul Aziz),” he told a press conference here on Monday.
The lawyer turned politician was here to show moral support to his deputy Datuk Nik Sapeia Nik Yusof, who is facing a charge of intentionally causing hurt to former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and three others.
Kayveas was responding to a stunning remark by Nik Abdul Aziz three days ago that PAS and Umno be dissolved and a single party based on Islam principles be formed.
Kayveas said a PAS and Umno merger would only solve Malay unity and Islam issues, but a Barisan party would address inter-racial and religious issues as well.
He repeated his point, first made after the stunning setback suffered by the ruling coalition in the March 8 polls, that Malaysians are maturing and that Barisan reinvent itself by uniting all its component parties together to become a single party with a single system.
His idea was shot down by some Barisan leaders then.

Status crisis for Tamil schools

The Government will consider converting the status of partially aided Tamil primary schools to fully aided, if the land issue can be solved.
Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the problem was that about 250 Tamil primary schools were presently built on estate land.
“We can’t have a fully aided school if the land doesn’t belong to us,” he told reporters after chairing a special committee meeting to overcome Tamil school issues.
He said the ministry had to identify if the land belonged to government-linked companies, private companies or individuals.
Besides land, he said, the Government also had to look at other issues such as the supply of teachers, upgrading of schools and under-enrolled schools.
“There is no point converting a school if it only has three pupils. This is why in our meeting, we identified the actual number of pupils and schools, schools which need to be upgraded or are overcrowded,” he said.
There are presently 523 Tamil primary schools in the country.
He said the committee found that the overall situation at Tamil primary schools was not as bad as painted by some parties.
“We are also working closely with the Plantation Industries and Commodities Ministry to upgrade the infrastructure of Tamil schools in plantations,” he said.
Hishammuddin said 171 applications had been approved in cases of children who do not have birth certificates as long as their parents obtained a confirmation letter from their village headman or the Village Development and Safety Committee (JKKK) head to allow them to go to school.

PAS Bantah Penamaan Jalan Dlm Bahasa cina atau India.

PAS membantah penamaan jalan dengan pelbagai bahasa di Georgetown seperti mahu dilaksanakan oleh kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat di Pulau Pinang.Pengerusi perpaduan nasional PAS Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa menyifatkan usaha exco kerajaan tempatan negeri Chow Kon Yeow "menjejaskan reputasi Bahasa Malaysia" dan boleh "menggadaikan martabat bahasa kebangsaan"."Walaupun niat untuk mempromosikan warisan sejarah nama tersebut bersesuaian dengan ciri-ciri budaya di kawasan itu, namun kegunaan bahasa lain daripada bahasa kebangsaan akan menjejaskan reputasi Bahasa Malaysia," kata Dr Mujahid."Saya menyeru kepada pihak berkuasa tempatan menolak keputusan ini bagi memartabatkan bahasa kebangsaan dan mendesak kerajaan Pulau Pinang membatalkan hasrat untuk menulis dalam bahasa lain daripada bahasa kebangsaan."Dr Mujahid, yang juga timbalan pesuruhjaya PAS Pulau Pinang, menyifatkan keputusan menambah bahasa-bahasa Cina, Inggeris dan Tamil di papan-papan tanda jalan dan bangunan di bandar raya itu "menggadaikan martabat bahasa kebangsaan"."Lagipun sejarah budaya pada sesuatu tempat telah diserapkan dalam budaya kita dan nama yang digunakan walaupun dari perkataan dari bahasa lain, ia tetap menjadi sebahagian daripada bahasa kebangsaan. "Oleh itu tidak perlu untuk menuliskannya dalam bahasa selain yang diterima pakai oleh bahasa kebangsaan," katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.Chow semalam dilaporkan berkata kerajaan negeri, yang dipimpin oleh DAP dan PKR, bersedia menunaikan janji melabelkan jalan dengan bahasa tambahan, selain bahasa kebangsaan, selepas mendapat desakan Gerakan awal minggu ini.Mengulas kontroversi panas isu dialog sulit PAS-Umno seperti didedahkan oleh perdana menteri Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi dan presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, Dr Mujahid menyalah presiden Umno kerana "membocorkan maklumat" kepada media. "Muzakarah Umno-PAS peluang terbaik Abdullah untuk dilihat ‘bersinar’ sedikit dalam kesuraman politiknya. "Abdullah juga dilihat terdesak untuk manipulasi isu muzakarah Umno-PAS dengan ‘membocorkan’ maklumat-maklumat pertemuan seolah-olah hubungan telah sampai ke tahap yang serius antara kedua-dua parti, sedangkan pertemuan antara parti-parti politik adalah perkara lumrah," katanya. Tambahnya, DAP bertemu dengan perdana menteri untuk kepentingan Pulalu Pinang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim bertemu Abdullah dalam kemelutnya didakwa meliwat, "maka apa istimewanya PAS bertemu dengan Abdullah?" "Melainkan ia disensasikan untuk kepentingan survival Abdullah," kata Dr Mujahid. "Soal muzakarah tidak pernah timbul pun, ia hanya manipulasi perkataan supaya ahli PAS menjadi keliru, yang berlaku hanyalah pertemuan biasa (muqabalah) yang menjadi hak PAS untuk berjumpa dengan sesiapa yang dirasakan perlu. "Apa yang dikesali ialah sikap Umno yang menangguk di air keruh dalam niat ikhlas PAS untuk bertemu dan mengemukakan hal-hal untuk kepentingan nasional."

Datuk Samsudin Perlu tarik balik kenyataan (Tapah)

Menyentuh Kenyataan Yang di berikan oleh Datuk Samsudin Abu Hassan Bahawa UMNO akan Ambil balik Kerusi Parlimen Tapah Yang kini disandang oleh parti MIC untuk mempertahankan kerusi tersebut jatuh kepada parti pembangkang bagi pilihanraya yang akan datang.
Di sini saya perlu menyuarakan pendapat saya iaitu Setiap masa saja sentiasa UMNO pertikaikan kerusi yang disandang oleh parti MIC.Sebelum Pilihanraya juga tekanan diberi oleh UMNO untuk mendapatkan semula Kerusi tersebut kepada UMNO.
Contoh di IJOK Selangor, yang disandang oleh parti MIC telah pun diberikan kepada UMNO pada pilihanraya ke 12 yang lalu tetapi apa yang terjadi? Tolong jangan lupa
MIC adalah komponen ataupun rakan kepada Parti Barisan Nasional.UMNO, MCA, MIC dan PPP adalah satu keluarga tetapi dikalangan Ahli UMNO tidak menghormati MIC sepertimana MIC yang menghormati UMNO serta komponen parti yang lain.
Please understand what is powershering.
Kepada Datuk Samsudin saya hendak Tanya apa yang membuatkan Kerusi Parlimen Tapah yang disandang oleh Parti MIC jatuh kepada tangan parti pembankang pada pilihanraya yang akan datang?

Saya disini menyatakan Datuk Samsudin Perlu Menarik balik kenyataan tersebut supaya persahabatan MIC dan UMNO akan memperkukuhkan lagi.
Blog ini perlu masuk ke laman

Sekian Terima kasih

Let us take Tapah back, says Samsudin

Tapah Umno wants the Tapah parliamentary seat to be returned to Umno to prevent it from falling into Opposition hands in the next election.
Its chief, Datuk Samsudin Abu Hassan, said the Barisan Nasional stronghold had been given to component parties for five terms since 1981 but was now in danger of going to the Opposition.
“We are not making threats or giving a warning but this is what the grassroots want,” he told reporters after opening the Tapah Umno’s branch, Wanita, Youth and Puteri meetings here yesterday.
He said this when asked to comment on a motion on the matter, which received the support of all 83 branches at the meeting.
In the March 8 general election, the MIC’s Datuk M. Saravanan won the seat by a 3,200-vote against Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s Tan Seng Toh. – Bernama

Party PSM upset over local council appointments

Perak's 338 local councillors are scheduled to be sworn in Friday but protests and dissatisfaction over the list of appointments seem unending.
The latest to express their disappointment are Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) members from Sungai Siput.
Sungai Siput PSM branch secretary M. Sukumaran handed over a memorandum on the matter to Perak Local Government, Housing and Public Transport Committee chairman Nga Kor Ming.
Sukumaran said Sungai Siput MP Dr D. Jeyakumar had sent a letter recommending four people to be councillors for the Kuala Kangsar Municipal Council.
"We are surprised that not even one was selected for the post. We are working closely with the people of Sungai Siput but not a single one was chosen,' he added.
He pointed out that it was perplexing that the state government could choose a former judge but not those who worked closely with the people.
The four persons that PSM had recommended were Sukumaran, M. Agastim, Chong Kim Foo and Adam Ngah Naim.
Since the Pakatan Rakyat government released the names of local councillors last Monday, protests over the selection had been voiced by non-governmental organisations such as Ipoh Ratepayers Association and Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf),
The posts for the 15 local authorities in Perak were made up of 93 representatives from members of the public, 70 from the Parti Keadilan Rakyat, 54 PAS, 104 DAP and 17 civil servants.
Sukumaran claimed that it was Nga who had asked Dr Jeyakumar, who is also PSM committee member, to recommend some people as councillors.
If Selangor could select three PSM leaders for councillor posts, there was no reason why the Pakatan Rakyat government in Perak should marginalise the party here, he said

Cops arrest Anwar

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim arrived at the city police headquarters here at 1.15pm Wednesday in a white Pajero after being arrested by the police.
He was earlier arrested in front of his house in Bukit Segambut.
His lawyer Sankara Nair said the police told Anwar that he was being arrested for investigations under Section 377C of the Penal Code for alleged "carnal intercourse against the order of nature."
On June 28, his 23-year-old former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan had lodged a police report alleging that Anwar had sodomised him.
Asked if Anwar was handcuffed, Sankara said he was not.
Anwar's wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said he had called her from the police car to say he had been arrested.
"He asked me to go home to look after the children," she said when met in Parliament lobby earlier Wednesday.
Wan Azizah was at the city police headquarters by 1.30pm, followed 25 minutes later by Anwar's daughter Nurul Izzah and her husband Raja Ahmad Shahrir.
"I don't believe this is happening. We will seek to get him released as soon as possible," said DAP chairman Karpal Singh, who had joined other PKR members and supporters gathering at the headquarters.
The police had on Tuesday given Anwar a 2pm deadline to answer allegations of sodomy.
Anwar was at the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) headquarters in Putrajaya earlier Wednesday. He left the ACA headquarters at 12.10pm, saying he was satisfied with the ACA's line of questioning.
He said the ACA had not completed its interview, but he had to cut it short to make his 2pm appointment with the police to answer questions over the sodomy allegation made against him.
The former deputy prime minister said he had produced all the information required, but there just wasn't enough time.
"If I am arrested, I guess the ACA can do their follow-up interview at the lock-up," the de facto opposition leader joked.
Anwar had arrived at the ACA headquarters at about 10am over the reports he had lodged against the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) and the Attorney-General (A-G).
He was accompanied by his lawyers and a group of PKR supporters.
In his report lodged on July 1, Anwar had alleged that IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan and A-G Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail had fabricated evidence in the “black eye” investigation in 1999.
Musa was the investigating officer and Abdul Gani led the prosecution in the case in which Anwar had been beaten up by the IGP then, Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Noor.
Musa and Abdul Gani were questioned by the ACA on July 11.

Kenyataan Terbaru PAS

Dipetik dari : Kritikan Hadi Pada Anwar, DAP (MalaysiaKini, Jul 14, 08)

Pemuda PAS menyifatkan pandangan presidennya Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang dalam sebagai wawancara minggu lepas isyarat kritikan terhadap Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan dua lagi parti dalam Pakatan Rakyat "agar tidak menimbulkan masalah" kepada PAS.
"Kita bersetuju dengan kenyataan presiden PAS dan ia juga sebagai satu isyarat kepada Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan juga PKR dan DAP agar tidak sekadar meraih populariti bukan Islam yang akhirnya akan merugikan orang Islam itu sendiri.
Kata sumber, insiden-insiden yang boleh meresahkan PAS termasuklah keengganan wakil rakyat DAP memakai songkok dalam persidangan Dewan Undangan negeri Johor dan perbincangan berhubung soal kebebasan dan hak istimewa orang Melayu dan Dasar Ekonomi Baru.
"Jangan tumpu sangat (pada isu-isu itu), nanti orang Melayu marah," kata sumber
Dalam soal Melayu dan Islam, kita (PAS) tidak kompromi. Kita bela habis-habisan," jelasnya lagi

MIC (Malaysian Indian Congress

Known also as Kongres India Se-Malaysia, MIC is one of the founding members of Barisan Nasional (BN) and a political party. Established in 1946, it was first envisioned to fight for the India against the British colonial after the second World War for independence. After that, MIC was involved in the fighting for the independence of Malaysia. MIC is poised as the Indian community voice in the country's post-war development where they joined the earlier National Alliance, which eventually became the Barisan Nasional in 1973.
Headed by its president Dato' Seri S Samy Vellu, it was founded by John A Thivy, to contribute to the inter-racial harmony and cooperation among all component parties of the BN.
The most significant leader of MIC, Tun V T Sambanthan was one of the leaders who tirelessly helped to contribute to the country's independence, of which he was a signatory of the Merdeka Agreement but it was only the next president, Tan Sri V Manickavasagam was when MIC became a part of the BN. It then championed various programmes like The Nesa Multipurpose Cooperative, the MIC Unit trust and the MIC Education Fund which was fundamental to the development of the group.
Its longest serving president is also the current one, Dato' S Samy Vellu, who have held the post since 1979 has often been criticized and accused of various allegations of corruption and most recently been accused for being the reason of MIC's huge losses of the general elections.
It has been reported that for the past 20 years, MIC has been able to obtain loans and scholarships totaling RM60million and benefited 10,000 Indian students under the Maju Institute of Education Development (MIED) fund.
MIC also reported that among their efforts include prompting the government to step up their efforts to achieve the 3% equity for Indians by 2020 under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.
MIC owns an education project known as the Asian Institute of Medicine, Science and Technology University (AIMST), a move not welcomed by many as it is difficult to align education with politics.
One of the major downfalls of MIC is in the previous general elections where the party president S Samy Vellu lost his seat at Sg Siput his stronghold for the past 20 years. Along with him, the other main losers include 2 other VPs of MIC, the head of youth as well as the head of the women's wing.

One day AGM for MIC

KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC has shortened its annual general meeting to a single day to cut costs, party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said here yesterday.“We have no choice. We need at least RM1mil to conduct the meeting over two days so we decided to have it for a single day from this year,” he said.Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will open the one-day AGM on Saturday.Samy Vellu said 3,300 branch chairmen would be invited to the assembly, which would be extended to 7pm to provide more time for discussions.

Kula's new post draws criticism

IPOH: The appointment of Ipoh Barat MP M. Kulasegaran as city councillor has drawn flak from various quarters.Ipoh Ratepayers Association (Irata) vice-president Victor Sankey expressed concern whether Kulasegaran could spare the time from his tight schedule as a parliamentarian to attend to local issues.“No doubt, his credentials qualify him as a councillor but he has enough on his plate as a parliamentarian,” he said yesterday.Pointing out that local councils were the third tier of government and closest to the people, Victor said ratepayers had high expectations.He added that the people were already annoyed that only 30% of the councillors’ posts were allotted to non-governmental organisations.Perak Education, Local Government, Housing and Public Transport Committee chairman Nga Kor Ming had on Monday announced the list of councillors.Teja assemblyman Chang Lih Kang was also sceptical if Kulasegaran could handle the appointment. He added that the Ipoh Barat MP’s appointment had also set a bad precedent.“A politician should not be given excessive power. Kulasegaran’s appointment is a form of monopoly.“As there were other candidates applying to become councillors, it should not be monopolised by politicians,” he said.Perak MCA organising secretary Dr Mah Hang Soon questioned whether Kulasegaran could carry out his duties as a councillor as he would be away in Parliament for more than 100 days a year.“Being a councillor, he needs to be regularly available to the people,” he said.Kulasegaran, however, said he would not face problems in carrying out his duties as both MP and councillor.“As I have vast knowledge on local council affairs, I am expected to play a pivotal role in Ipoh City Council,” he said.He added that he would quit as a lawyer soon to concentrate on his dual role.

MIC Youth bureau to recruit 50,000 new members

MIC Youth has set up a special bureau to recruit 50,000 new members within a year, its newly-appointed coordinator T. Mohan said.
In his maiden speech at the MIC Youth annual general assembly here, Mohan said there would be several changes in the movement to ensure it was effective and efficient.
“We should realise that we are small and should not be disunited in any situation. We must voice our views as one through the right channels to protect the rights of the community,” he said.
For the first time, the Putera MIC, which has 3,200 members, also joined in the MIC Youth meeting.
Mohan was appointed MIC Youth coordinator on Monday to replace S.A. Vigneswaran, who had resigned as the movement's leader.
He said the Youth wing would organise youth carnivals to publicise the MIC's programmes.
“We will also give priority to tackling social ills like crime, drug abuse, domestic violence and gangsterism.
“We will also set up a task force to handle the problems of those not having birth certificates and identity cards, which is a major problem in the Indian community,” Mohan said.
He said two full-time officers would be stationed at the MIC Youth office to provide support to the youth leaders in the country.
Yesterday, the wing unanimously passed 10 resolutions, including calling for the abolishment of interviews for the award of Public Services Department scholarships.
It also called on the Government to take concrete measures to set up a planning and implementation body in the Economic Planning Unit to ensure the 3% equity target for Indians is reached before 2020.
The wing also called for the setting up of a RM300mil youth entrepreneurs capital fund to assist Indians to participate in economic activities and approve a licence for the setting up of a bank for the community.
