Remembering the exit of an individual from the world of party politics…

    Samy Vellu… it was such a protracted long goodbye, and even now, it would seem you may still haunt the nation albeit in a diminished manner. Hopefully your son Vell Paari will honour his words and now that you have stepped down, he will also step down.

    Yes, I am far from being one of your fans.

    And with good reasons. The list is long, but one sore point which continually irks me and reminds me of your black record is when I have to pay tolls on so many of the highways which have encircled my home in PJ.

    You did promise us at the start that there will always be a toll-free alternative. Even so, you weaselled your way out of the SPRINT toll by saying that a toll-free alternative existed. And folks from say Section 17 in PJ headed for Sg. Buloh were expected to head in the opposite direction towards Damansara Heights, work their way through Hartamas and the small lanes of Kg. Damansara, and then through Kepong Baru before heading back towards Sg. Buloh. Toll free alternative? Or blatant attempt at whitewashing the fact that no real toll-free alternative was being provided?

    In the end, I think the provision of toll-free alternatives have been abandoned. And the rakyat have been seeing more and more of the massive toll increase provisions incorporated into the concession contracts surfacing.

    And the goverment’s attempts to pacify growing protests by compensating the toll concessionaires “with the goverment’s money” (Hah!) to offset scheduled toll increases have not fooled that many at all.

    Just like your infamous proclamations like “Act of God” (landslides), “No design flaws” (MRR II cracks), and “I will not return to KL if BN loses” (Lunas) will be what you are long remembered for. Padan muka.

    And can our Indians brothers and sisters, those who relied on MIC to protect them, ever forget how they were played out in the Telekoms share issues? Maica? And the dark list is long.

    Finally, this guy exits from MIC and politics bring tears of joy to all Malaysian Indians.
