p.s. I know of one Muniandy who is in MIC and he is a Dato and the boss of the Kuala Lumpur Indian vendors. If it's the same Muniandy, I hope the slippers weren't his idea.
Latest! I was told the delegate involved is one Peter Sugumaran, mic delegate paya besar division in pahang.
Muniandy is not the one.
Delegate suspended. This statement came in a little while ago. That hasn't stopped some angry people from planning an assembly in front of Muniandy's house in Ampang. It's going to be a peaceful gathering, they told me. "We want to throw slippers at his house".Original articleDATO SAMY'S BRIEF STATEMENT ON SLIPPER ISSUE. With the powers vested in me as President under the MIC Constitution I have suspended the delegate with immediate effect pending the recommendations by the Disciplinary Committee to the CWC on any further action on the delegate. I hope that with this decision the issue will be settled. I have also discussed this matter with other senior leaders of MIC and the agreed with the suspension.
MIC's slipper. The Utusan Malaysia report "Kalung selipar gambar Dr Mahathir" (Utusan Malaysia, 14/9) quoted an MIC delegate from Ampang by the name of M.Muniandy throughout but did not say it was Muniandy who tabled the motion to give the garland of slippers to Dr M for allegedly interfering in the party's affairs. It was enough to earn Muniandy some colorful expletives from blogger Apanama who wants Muniandy's boss Samy Velly to apologize to the former PM.DON'T EVER insult Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad, unless you want the situation to get ugly. -- "Who is the Bloody Bastard?"More angry bloggers: Sudah sampai masa BN kaji semula kedudukan MIC and MIC now in real trouble
There will be a lot of angry Umno politicians, too, after the Deputy Youty Chief and even the former Youth Chief have come down hard on MIC for the uncalled for incident.
If the garland was indeed his idea, this Muniandy thoroughly deserves the shit they're throwing at him. He should have learned from the former spin doctors of ex-PM Abdullah Badawi who tried to demonize Mahathir in order to make his boss look better. This was back when the Umno leaders did not come to the defence of Dr M for fear of losing their positions. But the people were angered by the kurang-ajarness. You may not agree but Malaysians generally respect the Tun and love him for the good he's done or tried to do for this country. You don't try to treat a statesman like a pariah.
