Samy Vellu: Indians Regret Voting For Opposition

(Bernama) — MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said Sunday Indian voters who had voted for the opposition parties in the last general election are now regretting their action.

He said that they now realised that the opposition parties could not do anything to help them.

"Now they realise that the opposition parties only know how to criticise. They cannot solve the problems faced by Indians in Selangor, Penang and Kedah," he said.

Samy Velly said about 45 per cent Indian voters had voted for the opposition in the election.

"I am advising all MIC leaders to be always close to the grassroots. We should go down to the field and help the people," he said after opening the Perak MIC convention here today.
