Unless the police come clean, we have no alternative but to refer the hand cuffing and assault incident to SUHAKAM

On the 22nd August2010 I as legal adviser accompanied Mr. Shanmugam President of Dindings Indian Association to the Sitiawan (DIA) Police station to lodge a police report on the wrong doings on the management of DIA. Sdr. P.Sugumaran my former political secretary also followed us. We were stopped from entering the Police Station as it was barricaded with over 100 police man.

Racial slurs were herald at us heard from the police side. We heard to this effect “ you bloody Indians” which made the people present angry. This incident which took place at about 4pm on 22/8/10 would not have happened as the people had come merely to express their solidarity with us.

It was this insensitive and racist remark by a police officer which had caused unhappiness which finally resulted in me and Sugu being handcuffed. Sugu was subsequently detained and assaulted while under police custody.

In view of the fact that our call for an independent investigation into the whole incident has been ignored, we will lodge a complaint with Suhakam.

We fully support the Prime Minister 's position that there must be zero tolerance against people making racist remarks. It is even more dangerous if an enforcement officer commits such an of fence. Hence, we also want this to be fully investigated.

The Chief Police Office of Perak had earlier asked for proofs to substantiate the allegation and we repeat that the unedited video recording of the whole incident by the special branch officer will provide the proofs. .

Has the CPO viewed the recording? What does he have to say now and will he make public the unedited recording?

We also repeat that if need be, we will take legal avenue to ensure justice is done.

To day we are present at IPD Sri Manjung to show support and solidarity with P.Sugumaran. On the 22August he was arrested and asked to appear at the IPD today for renewal of police bail.

General Elections sooner than later?

I will be speeking at the Ipoh Country Club at 10am today on the topic "orientation and election preparation" workshop orgainsed by the DAP Ipoh Timur
I think this kind of workshop should be held at every level of the party.

My contents of speech are follows.

The nation’s last general election was held in March 2008.The 13th general election is therefore not due until 2013.

But since Datuk Sri Najib assumed the office of Prime Minister, there have been speculations that snap polls or early general election will be held.

So when will general election be held? This is a question not even Paul the Octopus can tell.

But when it is held, it may come as a surprise.

Parliament to be dissolved next year?

Recently, Prime Minister Najib had said the government would not dissolve parliament to make way for the general election based on one opinion that people favoured him, but the election date would in fact be a surprise to all.

Before the recent Sibu by election, there was speculation that Najib might hold Parliamentary and Sarawak state elections simultaneously. But the unexpected BN’s loss in Sibu has upset his plans.

So when will he dissolve parliament?

I believe that Najib will dissolve the Parliament not later than second half of next year due to three factors:-

a. Worldwide economic downturn expected in 2011
b. He will want to take advantage of the people’s general attitude of “give the new leader a chance” .Such advantage will decrease with long delay when his government is unable to deliver more than is expected of him.
c. He will want to seek his own mandate as the nation’s new Prime Minister

Sarawak factor
There is now strong speculation that if BN does well in the Sarawak state election, then Najib will dissolve Parliament early next year, probably in March 2011.

Sarawak state election is due by May 2011 but it is expected to be held this year.

However, if Sarawak state election is held soon after Hari Raya and BN performs well, I will not rule out the possibility of Najib dissolving Parliament even this year.

Of course, if Sarawak state election is only held next year, then Najib’s promise for a surprise election may come true, a simultaneous holding of the Parliamentary and Sarawak state elections.

March towards Putra Jaya

Next general election will be a most crucial election for the nation as it will be an election for the first time in our nation’s electoral history where many political analysts believe there exists the real possibility of a change of Federal Government.

In the past, it was always a foregone conclusion that BN would continue to rule.

Hence, we must expect BN to go all out in all aspects to stop the Pakatan Rakyat’s electoral objective of “March Towards Putrajaya.” It would not be surprising if BN uses all it’s resources in what ever way and tactic it can, namely money, threat and the media to win. We should expect the next election to be the dirtiest and the ugliest ever!

We need to be a lot more prepared compared to the 12 th general election. We must be better prepared in all aspects, including even to have better quality and winnable candidates.

In the next general election, a voter swing of 10 % will mean a loss of about 50 parliamentary seats either for BN or Pakatan Rakyat.

Lets work hard to ensure that the 10 % voter swing is in our favour so as to bring about a better government and a better Malaysia for all Malaysians, irrespective of race, religion, class and creed.

Give Sitiawan school back its historic name - Malaysiakini

Humayun Kabir, Aug 27, 2010, 10:43am

The DAP is determined to get the current name of Sitiawan's SK Simpang Empat, given by the government when it took over its administration in the 1960s, replaced with its former historically significant name of SK Gandhi.

This follows the success of the party and the Committee Against the Acquisition of the Dindings Indian Association Heritage Land (CAADIAHL), together with the support of the Indian community in Sitiawan, in foiling a federal government attempt to take over a 2.2ha parcel of land belonging to the Dindings Indian Association (DIA).

The uphill struggle to preserve the Indian heritage land has gained political mileage for DAP, and also sent a clear message to the state MIC that it should not play second fiddle to Umno by keeping silent on matters affecting the Indian community in Perak.
Located on the land, purchased in 1930 with contributions from rubber tappers in 35 estates around Sitiawan, are the school, the school field, the DIA building, the Gandhi Memorial Community Hall and the Dr VRN Menon Science Laboratory.

Perak DAP deputy chief M Kulasegaran is all for the school getting back its original name, SK Gandhi, it is to remember Mahathma Gandhi, respected all over the world as the "apostle of peace" and who was the key figure in India's non-violent struggle for freedom from British rule.

The Sitiawan-born DAP Ipoh Barat MP said the original intention of building SK Gandhi was to educate the tappers' children in the English language. Though it is officially SK Simpang Empat now, it remains widely known to the locals as the "Gandhi school".

"Until the late 1970s, the name Gandhi was printed on the school's exercise books and at the entrance of the school, the name Gandhi was prominently displayed," Kulasegaran said.

Yesterday evening, DAP and CAADIAHL jointly held a public forum at the DIA Gandhi hall, which was also attended by another Sitiawan son, Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy, and former Perak assembly speaker V Sivakumar.

The crowd of about 500 resolved that the DIA land should always remain in the hands of the Sitiawan Indian community, which should have absolute control over any future development of the heritage site.

Another resolution passed was that any Indian in the Sitiawan area could become a member of the DIA without any restriction whatsoever.

SK Simpang Empat should be renamed as SK Gandhi

I spoke at the Gandhi Hall, Sitiawan at 7pm last night. Other speakers include Prof Ramasamy, YB SivaKumar , Shanmugam DIA President and others.
I was surprised with the turn out. In fact i was touched by the turnout. We collected RM1,200 as donation for Sugumaran who was injured while in police custody.
The hall was packed and many people were out side on the field listening to us.
We also promised to organize a victory gala event soon. my speech is as follows:
25th August 2010 will go down history as a day many cannot forget . It is especially a proud day for the Indian community of Sitiawan.
Today is supposed to be the day for the BN government’s compulsory acquisition of the Indian Heritage land measuring 2.2hectars.
If the acquisition has been successful, the hopes and dreams of those who had contributed towards the purchase of this great heritage property will have been destroyed.
In the 1930's, ordinary Indian laborers from over 35 estates in Sitiawan rallied to the call and contributed 2 straits dollars a month for 18 months to purchase the land.
Let's not forget at that time a labourer earned not more than an average of 12strarits dollars a month.
Such was the people’s r sacrifice and hence the land has historical and sentimental value to the Indian community.
Yet the BN government could be so insensitive to want to acquire it. But today has turned out to be a day where the government has to abandon its decision due to the strong objection by the community.
The government’s decision to back down is certainly a total victory for the united and determined community.
We must reiterate that under no circumstances, now or in future, shall the heritage land be acquired by the government.
Let me remind the government that the community is still hurt by its repulsive and insensitive attempt to acquire the land.
We demand that Perak Government apologise to the community. Rename the present school as SK Gandhi
Sekolah Kebangsaan Simpang Empat which sits on part of the land is a former English school.
It was built some time in 1950 and the initial idea was to educate the estate children in English.
The school was at all material time known as Gandhi school although officially it is known as SK Simpang Empat.
Even during and until the late 1970's, the name Gandhi was imprinted on the school exercise books. At the entrance of the school, the name Gandhi was prominently written.
Hence, the school should be renamed Sekolah Kebangsaan Gandhi.

Perak Mentri Besar should apologise for the intended acquisition of the Indian heritage land in Sitiawan.

Together with the Committee Members of the Dindings Indian Association and concerned citizens, I had this morning called over to Sri Manjung land office to get official confirmation if the acquisition of the Indian Heritage land has been cancelled.
We met the District officer Ahmad bin Shafee and had discussion with him. He confirmed that the acquisition has been cancelled and the letter to that effect has been issued. A copy of the letter was pasted outside the land office.
We conveyed to him the local community’s position that the heritage land is not for sale or to be taken over.
He said that the Government’s decision to acquire the land was to rebuild the school. We told him that it is okay to rebuild the school but compulsory acquisition of the 2 hectare land is totally unacceptable.
We asserted that this is the Indian heritage land which has significant historical and sentimental value to the local community and it is also the only land around which the community can proudly say as theirs.
Such an insensitive, unnecessary and unjustifiable move by the Government has come as a shock to the community. The intended acquisition has hurt the feelings of the community. It is therefore insufficient for the Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Zamry to just announce the decision to abandon the intended acquisition.
It is also inadequate for him to explain that the acquisition was due to an Education Ministry official who apparently was unaware of the sentimental value of the land to the Indian community.
Datuk Zamry should therefore apologise for the intended acquisition which is repulsive and unacceptable to the community.

Demonstrasi di PTD

SINAR HARIAN 25/08/2010

MEDAN ISTANA – Enggan mengeruhkan lagi keadaan, orang ramai yang sudah menerima surat agar menyertai demonstrasi di Pejabat Tanah dan Daerah Manjung PTD) hari ini, dinasihatkan supaya tidak datang ke lokasi berkenaan kerana isu itu sudah dianggap selesai.

Naib Pengerusi DAP Kebangsaan, M Kulasegaran berkata, pada awalnya cadangan untuk mengadakan demonstrasi dibuat bagi membantah tindakan Kementerian Pelajaran yang mahu mengambil alih tanah warisan masyarakat India.

Bagaimanapun, hasrat itu dibatalkan selepas menerima surat pembatalan warta kerajaan yang disampaikan oleh PTD Manjung yang diserahkan kepada Penasihat Menteri Besar Perak, Datuk S Veerasingam.

“Isu tanah warisan masyarakat India di Sitiawan itu menjadi berita besar sejak Kerajaan Persekutuan bercadang untuk mengambil alih hak milik tanah itu.

“Justeru, kita telah membawa perkara ini ke pihak berkaitan dan pendengaran kes pengambilalihan tanah itu dijadualkan berlangsung esok (Rabu),” katanya dalam satu sidang media di Wisma DAP di sini, semalam.

Menurutnya, demonstrasi itu diadakan bertujuan membantah pengambilalihan itu.

Kulasegaran yang juga Ahli Parlimen Ipoh Barat berkata, meskipun demonstrasi itu tidak jadi, namun beliau akan tetap ke lokasi kira-kira jam 9 pagi bagi memaklumkan kepada orang ramai yang masih lagi belum mendapat makluman berhubung pembatalan itu.

“Saya dimaklumkan pasukan polis sudah pun ditempatkan di lokasi berkenaan bagi mengawal keadaan di sana.

“Jadi, lebih baik sekiranya saya juga ke sana untuk memberitahu mereka bahawa perhimpunan itu dibatalkan,” katanya.

Minggu lalu, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry mengumumkan bahawa Menteri Pelajaran, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin bersetuju proses pengambilan tanah Dinding Indian Association (DIA) tidak dilakukan kerana ia adalah tanah warisan yang menjadi simbol masyarakat India.

Dr Zambry berkata, keputusan itu dibuat setelah mengambil kira latar belakang tanah berkenaan yang dimiliki oleh masyarakat India sejak zaman sebelum merdeka lagi.

DAP mulls legal action against Perak cops

Humayun Kabir, Aug 24, 2010, 6:52pm

Perak DAP state deputy chief and lawyer M Kulasegaran is considering legal action against the police force for 'false imprisonment'.

He claimed they had handcuffed him for 10 minutes, while his former political secretary P Sugumaran had suffered injuries in an incident last Sunday at the Sitiawan police station.

Kulasegaran (left in pic) said the handcuffs were only removed when the district police chief arrived and ordered his immediate release.

“This was a humiliating incident as I had done nothing wrong to warrant such a forceful action,” he told the media at the DAP headquarters in Ipoh today.

Sugumaran, who was also handcuffed, was injured when he was allegedly kicked and beaten up for about three minutes by about five police personnel, and he fell to the floor in the police station. He claimed that he has their photographs and can identify two of them.

He said he was bleeding from the mouth when taken to the lock-up, where he requested water to drink. However, a policeman allegedly said he would only bring water from the toilet.

While in the lock-up, Sugumaran (right) sent a text message to Kulasegaran and Pakatan assembly speaker V Sivakumar, asking them to 'save' him from his agony.

“I thought I was a goner and just might become another casualty like (A) Kugan (who died in police custody in Subang Jaya),” he said.

Last Sunday, Kulasegaran had accompanied about 1,000 residents of Sitiawan - led by Dindings Indian Association chairperson MP Sahnmugam - to the police station to lodge a report.

Kulasegaran said two factions are fighting for control of a 2ha site belonging to the association.

Sugumaran claimed that a policeman made a racist remark - “You bloody Indians” - and that he was arrested when he went to question the officer.

Released after his statement was recorded, he was taken to the Sri Manjung Hospital for treatment.

At 8pm, Kulasegaran accompanied him to lodge a police report at the Manjung police district headquarters.

Sugumaran later complained of severe pain in his abdomen and started to pass blood in his urine, and was admitted to the Sitiawan Specialist Centre at about 9.30pm.

A CAT scan yesterday at the Pantai Hospital in Ipoh detected blood clots in his kidneys.

'Proof in footage'

Kulasegaran also slammed Perak police chief Zulkifli Abdullah for denying that the personnel had used force or made racist remarks, and for demanding proof of the claims, as reported by Bernama yesterday.

Kulasegaran said Zulkifli should have acted with impartiality and not drawn hasty conclusions based on the police version.

He said the 1,000 Sitiawan residents who were at the police station to make the report were the main witnesses of the incident.

“There were Special Branch officers making a video recording and the unedited video will speak volumes about the incident,” he said.

“The police should make the video recording public in the interest of justice and fair play.”

Hand cuffing and Arrest by the police of Sugumaran and myself

Bernama the official news agency has carried a report saying that Perak CPO has denied that the Police had used force and racist remarks on those who gathered to lodged police reports last Sunday.
We refute the Chief Police Officer’s sweeping statement and swift denial.
He has been reported to further say that we have to show proof for him to take action, if any?
Let me say that if the police needs proof, the following evidence should help:-
1) the crowd present can be called and they will be cooperate to tell what actually happened
2) There were Special Branch officers who carried out video shooting of the whole incident. This unedited Video will speak volumes.
Hence, if the CPO wants any proof, he should know where to find it. In the interest of justice and fair play, the Police should make the video recording public.
If need be, we will file legal proceeding against the police force for handcuffing me and arresting and injuring P.Sugumaran( my former political sec)

Tomorrow's Demonstration at Sri Manjung land office to protest agaist acquisition of Indian Heritage Land has been cancelled

The Indian Heritage land in Sitiawan has been in the news ever since the Federal Government‘s proposal to acquire it. The acquisition Hearing is scheduled to be held at Sri Manjung land office tomorrow.

There have been fierce objections to the acquisition as the land has historical and sentimental value to the local Indian community. This 2.2 hectare land was purchased in the 1930’s with donation collected from Indian rubber tappers in and around Sitiawan.
All and sundry feel the intended acquisition is unnecessary, insensitive, unfair, unacceptable and unjustifiable.
A number of meetings involving NGOs and local community have been held to discuss the proposed acquisition. The Committee Against the Acquisition of the Dindings Indian Heritage Land (CAADAHL) was subsequently formed to spearhead, coordinate and organize activities to protect the land.
A memorandum to protest the intended acquisition was handed to the land administer of Sri Manjung on 20thAugust2010. Those who were present to hand over the memorandum included the Dindings Indian Association President Shanmugam, NGO's, civil society, concerned citizens and me. The cavetors of the land, Gurusamy and Muniandy were present too.
Although it has been widely reported in the press that both the Federal and Perak governments have decided to withdraw the decision to acquire the land, no formal notice has been given to the above persons.
We have taken the stand that unless officially notified we will proceed to attend the acquisition inquiry come what may.
Nevertheless, late yesterday the cavettos have been officially notified that the acquisition has been cancelled.
In view of the above development and after due consideration, we have decided to call off the protest scheduled to be held tomorrow at the Sri Manjung land office.
CAADIHL is aware that that hundreds of police personnel will be deployed to be placed around the land office.
We are also aware that water cannons, tear gas and other preventative police gears are all being readied for tomorrow’s event.
I want to ask whether all this process is necessary when the demonstration panned is simply a peaceful gathering of citizens to make clear their objections to the proposed acquisition.

If only the government has been considerate and not try to acquire the Heritage land which has historical and sentimental value to the local Indian community, such waste of police time could have been avoided.

The proposed acquisition shows that despite having suffered its unprecedented electoral debacle in the last general election, the BN government has yet to learn its lessons. It is still the same arrogant and insensitive BN.
Many who support our stand that there must be no acquisition of the Heritage land are ready to come to Sri Manjung to show their support. Some people from as far as Johor Bahru and Kuantan have expressed their interest to attend the demonstration.
However, in view of the fact that there has been official revocation of the acquisition, the Committee has decided to cancel the planned protect scheduled tomorrow.

Police deny using force on gathering in front of Sitiawan Police Station

Bernama the official news agency carried a report saying that Perak CPO denies using force and racist remarks on those who gathered to lodged police reports last Sunday.
We refute the Chief Police Officers sweeping statement that police “deny using force and racist remarks”.
He further says we have to show proof for him to take action, if any? If the police need proof the following evidence should help:
1) the crowd present can be called and they will vouch what happened
2) The were Special Branch/police officers who carried out video shooting of the whole incident. This unedited Video will speak volumes. In the interest of justice and fair play is the police ready to make this video public?
We are not unperturbed with the CPO’s statement. If every thing fails then we will file legal proceeding against the police force to redress the wrong
Bernama's full report:
LUMUT, Aug 23 (Bernama) -- Police on Monday denied using force on members of an organisation who had gathered in front of the Sitiawan police station on Sunday.Perak police chief Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah said the group's claim that police had used force and racist words while preventing them from barging into the police station was baseless and aimed at tarnishing the image of the police force."I strongly refute the allegation," he said to reporters after a dialogue with Sime Darby Plantation management, here Monday."As a professional law-enforcement agency, the police have been trained to face any eventuality, including pressure.He was asked to comment on an illegal assembly by members of the Dindings Indians Association in front of the police station when they wanted to lodge a report on the association's internal problems.In the incident, police arrested two members of the group, Ipoh Barat member of parliament M.

Police detain Kula after crowd turns unruly

Star news paper at page 23 headline of my news reads as "Police detain Kula after crowd turns unruly" but Star on line news head line reads as follows
"MP arrested amid commotion at police station"
The full news in the Star paper

IPOH: Ipoh Barat MP M. Kulasegaran and his former political secretary P. Sugumaran were arrested in Sitia­wan after a commotion erupted when police refused to allow a large group of people into the police station.
The group, comprising members of the Dinding India Association (DIA), had wanted to lodge a police report yesterday over alleged mismanagement in the movement.
The police, however, ruled that not all can enter the station and this irked the DIA members.
In the ensuing commotion, Kulasegaran and Sugumaran were arrested at 4pm. The duo were released several hours later.
The DAP vice-chairman said he and Sugumaran had accompanied DIA president P. Shanmugan to lodge the report.
He alleged that some unidentified policemen had uttered a racist remark which angered the group.
Kulasegaran also claimed that Sugumaran was assaulted by the police while in custody.
Some 10 minutes later, Kulasega­ran said Manjung OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Jamil Osman arrived and apologised, saying the police had wrongly handcuffed him.
“Sugumaran was eventually released on police bail of RM2,000 at 8.30pm. He was brought to the Manjung Specialist Centre and admitted for his injury,” he said.
Kulasegaran had lodged a report at the Sitiawan police station over the incident.
ACP Mohd Jamil, when contacted, confirmed the arrests. He said the crowd, numbering about 150 as opposed to Kulasega­ran’s claim of 1,000, had demanded to accompany Shanmugan into the station.
“However, the police told them that only a few were allowed to enter. During the negotiation, the crowd became unruly,” he said.
To defuse the situation, the police arrested Kulasegaran and Suguma­ran, adding that both were released after their statements were recorded.
ACP Mohd Jamil declined to comment over the alleged racist remark made. However, he denied Suguma­ran had been assaulted while in custody.
He said the crowd did not have any police permit to gather in the area.

Discussion in Sitiawan as to how to "protect the Heritage property of the Community"

Among the speakers at this discussion were DIA President Shanmugam, YB SivaKumar,Lawyer Madhialigan, Dr.Jayabalan,Dr.Muninandy, and others.
The attendence was good over 500 people. My contents of my speech is as follows:
The Indian Heritage land is still being talked about especially in the Sitiawan area.In the 30's Indian estate laboures decided to purchase the 2 hectare Dindings Indian Association land. In the land a school was built to educate their children in English as the estate children were going to Tamil schools in the morning.
I was appointed as the Dindings Indian Association (DIA) legal adviser in the early 1980's.
Former President of DIA the late CSC Sellapan handed to me 2 title deeds of the land namely:-
1) as custodian 2) to make application to vest the property in the name of Trustees.On 13thApril1987, the properties were vested in the name of A.Krishnan and C.S.C Sellapan.Sometime in 1998, N.Krishna came to my law office and asked for the title deeds on the ground that members of DIA wanted to have sight of the original title deeds.
We handed to him. He gave a letter in writing dated 21/9/1994 assuring the return of the title deeds within a month. However, Krishna has never returned the titles to date.
Unknowing to us and the local community, on 28thNovember1995 Krishna and with his committee’s approval entered into a joint venture to develop the land.
There were a lot of queries on the Joint venture (JW) agreement namely:-
1) the agreement was much in favour of the developer and it was signed without protecting owner’s rights.
2) the DIA will after surrendering the title deeds for the joint venture will get a club house measuring 8000 sq.feet as compared to the total area 236,683 sq feet it surrenders. What it means is the DIA because of Krishna and his committee’s decision will get back just only 3.38% of the land.3) Up front deposit payment which is usual in a JW is absent here. Why? Krishnan and his committee must be reminded that this heritage property belongs to the whole Indian community and he is ONLY a custodian. He has NO rights to enter into a JW and treat this property as his personal one.At all times this Indian Heritage property should remain in the hands of the Indian community and it is not for sale or to be taken over by the Government.

Declare Dinding's land "little India"

A write up in MalaysiaKiniby By: Humayun Kabir Aug 20, 10 12:15pm

The Committee Against the Acquisition of Dindings Indian Heritage Land (CAADIHL) wants the Perak government to declare the Dindings Indian Association's (DIA) 2.2 hectare plot of prime land in Sitiawan as a "Little India" site.
The proposed Little India site will be the base for further and future growth of Indian culture and the like to promote Indian heritage in the disctrict.

The committee also hopes the government will provide financial assistance to make this dream a reality.
These are some of the proposals outlined by the CAADIHL in the memorandum of protest that was handed over to the Manjung Land Office yesterday afternoon.

The memorandum is to put on record the stand, sentiments and the demands of the local Indian community on the proposed move to acquire the Indian heritage land.

According to DAP national vice-chief and state deputy chief M Kulasegaran, the 30-member group waited one hour for district land officer Ahmad Shafee, or his assistant, to hand over the memorandum, but they did not show up.
Finally, a land office staff member who accepted the memorandum told the group, which included DAP state chief Ngeh Koo Ham, that the acquisition of the Indian heritage land would proceed, unless it was rescinded by Menteri Besar Zambry Abd Kadir.
CAADIHL also plans to hold a peaceful demonstration outside the Manjung Land Office on Aug 25.

The cabinet at its meeting on Wednesday said it would not support the development of the 80-year-old DIA site, which is the pride of the Indian community in Sitiawan.
Role of Indian affairs adviser questioned

Kulasegaran also questioned the miscommunication between the state government and the Education Ministry, which wants to build a primary school, SRK Simpang Empat, on the site.

"Why didn't the Perak BN Indian affairs adviser S Veerasingam tell Zambry about the historical value of the DIA site? Or was it a case of Veerasingam just going along with the state's decision to acquire the land?" asked the DAP Ipoh Barat MP.

Kulasegaran and two other Sitiawan-born Pakatan leaders - Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy and Padang Serai MP N Gobalakrishnan - have been working to prevent the takeover of the land.
The land had been bought in the 1930s, with contributions from Indian rubber tappers from 35 estates around Sitiawan

Government should apoliogize to the Indian community. Would they?

Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Zamry‘s yesterday’s announcement that the Perak state government has decided to withdraw its plan to compulsory acquire the Dindings Indian Heritage land in Sitiawan is most welcomed by the local community.

Zamry did not acknowledge any mistakes or wrongs by his administration on the proposed acquisition. Rather he shifted and blamed an education ministry officer and he said that it was “an oversight by an education ministry officer, who had overlooked the historical value of the land to the Indian community thus resulting in the proposed acquisition”

However, is Zamry saying that the Perak Government State Indian Affairs adviser Dato Veersingam was in the dark too? Or it was a case the representative was aware, but just went along with the state decision to acquire the land?

However as the revocation has yet to become official, the Committee Against the Acquisition of Heritage Land has decided to go ahead with the submission of the earlier prepared Memorandum of Protest to the Manjung Land Administrator.

The memorandum also serves to put on record the stand, sentiment and demands of the local community over the acquisition Indian heritage land.

The local Indian community is asking the whole heritage land be declared as “little India ” site. It’s hope this declaration could be the base for further and future growth of Indian Culture and the like. It is hoped the Government will assist financially and

The community is in fact still angry and hurt that both the Federal and Perak state governments could have been so insensitive and unfair to initiated moves to acquire the heritage land which has historical and sentimental value to the community.

Hence, the BN Federal and Perak State Government should apologise to the Sitiawan Indian community over their insensitive, unnecessary, unfair and unjustifiable attempt to acquire Dindings Indian Heritage land.

News Release 19/08/2010

MIC and Umno have failed the Indians, says DAP

DAP is accusing MIC and Umno of failing to address the dire social problems faced by marginalised Malaysian Indians in the country.

DAP national vice-chief M Kulasegaran (left) claims the Indian community, that represents under 10 percent of the country's total population, faces the highest rate of social problems when compared to the other communities.

He says these include: the highest rate of school dropouts, the highest illiteracy rate, the highest suicide rate, the highest rate of alcoholism, the highest incidence of single motherhood, the highest number not possessing birth certificates and identity cards, and the highest number of jail detainees.

As an example, he cited that 40 percent of detainees at Simpang Renggam detention camp are Indians.

He says that while both MIC and Umno had taken the community for granted as traditionally loyal supporters of the BN, they had neglected to address their social ills for the past 53 years.

“If MIC had only been effective in fighting for the rights of Indians, the Indians would not have been so marginalised with so many problems unresolved,” said the DAP leader angrily.

Foreign countries like the USA have acknowledged the Indian race for their brains and their potential for of human development, yet Malaysia has failed to tap this vast potential for the economic advancement of the nation, said Kula, who is also party state deputy chief and Ipoh Barat MP.

He is calling for the Indian community to break away from the shackles of BN domination in controlling their socio-economic environment and take control of their political destiny.

'Reprise kingmaker role'

He reminded the Indians that they must again rise up to the occasion and reprise their role as kingmakers in the next general election to deal BN its worst electoral defeat.

The fiery demonstrations by the Indian community prior to the last general election is often cited as one of the key contributing factors to the 'political tsunami' against the ruling party.

He warned the community not to fall for titbits that BN is dishing out now in the hope of regaining the support of Malaysian Indians.

He warned that many BN politicians believe that Indian voter will swing back to the BN like a pendulum once their anger has cooled, and that Indians can be easily pacified by dishing them some political goodies.

He criticised Najib Abdul Razak's cabinet committee for the Indian community that the premier chairs, saying it has yielded no policy changes to make a difference.

“I wish to remind the Indian voters that MIC and the BN government have not changed much or done much for the community since the 2008 general election,” he said.

He was speaking at a Tamil dinner at Dewan Kutien in Ayer Tawar organised by DAP on Saturday.

Other Pakatan speakers at the function included former menteri besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin, Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy, DAP state chief Ngeh Koo Ham and PSM Sungai Siput MP Dr D Jeyakumar.

Perak Government's decision to back down on the acquisition of the DIA is a total victory for the united and determined local Indian community

Perak government’s decision to back down on the acquisition of the Dindings Indian Association land is a total victory for the united and determined local Indian community.
Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Zamry announced yesterday that the Perak state government had decided to withdraw its decision to take over the Dinding Indian Association (DIA) land in Sitiawan for a school expansion project.
He said state MIC chairman Datuk S. Veerasingam would meet Manjung Land and Mine District Office officers to revoke the proposed gazetting of the 2.2ha land by the Education Ministry to make way for the Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Simpang Empat project.
The Perak government’s decision to back down on the acquisition of the DIA land is a total victory for the united and determined local Indian community.
In my meetings with the community, I have described the proposed acquisition as being insensitive, unnecessary, unfair and unjustifiable.

There are three very important facts which I wish to put on record:-

Firstly, the land has historic and sentimental value to the local Indian community as it was purchased in the 1930s with money donated by ordinary rubber tappers from over 35 estates in and around Sitiawan

Secondly, there are nearby lands which can be acquired for public purpose.

In fact, just about 1/2 kilometer from the proposed acquired land, there are 2500 acres of oil palm estate known as Sg. Wangi Estate which belongs to the Sime Darby group, a Government linked company (GLC).
Some 15 years ago, about 150acreas of land were acquired from Sg. Wangi Estate by the Defence Ministry to build an airport. There is therefore no reason why part of this estate land cannot be acquired to build a new school.

Thirdly it is common practice to relocate schools from town and city centers due to traffic congestion. The DIA land is in the center of Sitiawan town. Does it make sense to built or rebuild a school in town center?

The Perak government’s decision to withdraw the acquisition is therefore logical, right and indeed unavoidable as no responsible and caring government can justify such a proposed acquisition.

Nevertheless, the arrogant and insensitive BN government as usual will need to be shown the people power before it is willing to back down.
In the mean while until and unless we are officially notified we will proceed to ask all to attend the hearing of the acquisition which is scheduled on 25thAugust2010. We will also go all out to visit house to house to distribute pamphlets and information on the proposed acquisition
People power shown by the local Indian community has therefore forced the Perak government to back down.

The racist school head should be sacked for making racist remarks against non Malay students

According to today’s Chinapress report, Kulaijaya Deputy OCPD Deputy Supt Mohd Kamil Sukarmi said the case whereby a school head was alleged to make racist remarks against non Malay students was being investigated and that 17 reports had been lodged so far.

Chinapress also gave an outline of the incident.
The outline said that on August 12, students of a secondary school in Kulai, Johor have complained against the school head. The students alleged that she had said that if the students did not understand Bahasa Malaysia, they should go back to China and India.

She was alleged to have said that she could not understand why the Indian students need to wear so many bangles and she said that only dogs need to wear so many things.
It was also alleged that the school head had made “penumpang” remarks which angered the students.

I have checked with DAP members in Johor and was told the school involved is SMK Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, Kulaijaya.

Today’s Star has also reported that the principal was alleged to have described non-Malays as penumpang in the country during her speech at the start of the Merdeka celebration last Thursday.

The news report also says that a 17-year-old student, Brevia Pan, told a press conference that the principal had told non-Malay students to go study in a Chinese school or go back to China.

The report continues to say:-

“The secondary school principal, meanwhile, was jeered when she tried to apologise for her allegedly racist remark during an assembly.

The principal was forced to leave the assembly area at least twice in front of state education department officials, teachers, parents and students here yesterday.

Many parents want the woman to be removed from the school and face disciplinary action as she had caused tension among the students and teachers.”

This is not the first incident where teachers were alleged to make racist remarks. It is time that the Government must view such complaint with utmost seriousness and mete out the severest punishment.

Racist teachers are not fit to be in the teaching profession and an apology or a transfer to another school is not sufficient.

Since the school head has tried to apologise over her racist remarks, this means that the complaints against her are not baseless.

Hence, I call on the Education Ministry to mete out the severest disciplinary action against her.

She should be sacked from her job.

I also note that The Star has reported that the Deputy Education Minister Dr Puad Zarkashi has said that he had spoken to the state education director and he was informed that it was a misunderstanding and the issue had been resolved with the principal apologising and visiting all the classrooms to explain the situation.

Dr Puad must not just rely on the State Education Department‘s report. He should personally visit the school and talk to the students and parents to find out the truth.

There must not be cover up. This is a serious issue which must be dealt with seriously.

In fact, the Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin and his two deputies are all from the state of Johor. It is inexcusable if none of them could meet the parents and students to listen to their complaints.

Remind Veerasingam that if MIC is not able to help in protecting the DIA land, it should at least not hamper or criticize the DAP‘s efforts to do so.

It is reported today that Perak MIC chief Datuk Veerasingam has slammed Pakatan Rakyat for allegedly inciting the Indians in Sitiawan over the Government’s decision to take over the Dindings Indian Association (DIA) land to build a school.

The report says, “Giving assurance that the MIC would ensure that the prime land remained with the association, state party chairman Datuk S. Veerasin­gam said Penang Deputy Chief Minister Dr P. Ramasamy and Padang Serai MP N. Gobalakrishnan should stop inciting Indians in the town to hold a demonstration on the matter”.

Veerasingam also said there were other areas available nearby which the Education Ministry could also acquire to build the school.

Apparently Veerasingam was saying that MIC is against the acquisition but only has issue with the holding of a demonstration.

Let me make it clear that DAP or Pakatan Rakyat do not engage in the business of inciting the people.

It is our duty and responsibility to make the people aware of the issue involved and to mobilize them to show their clear and public stand

While MIC only believes in talking, we believe that it is the people’s right to air their legitimate grievances and state their stand via all democratic, legitimate and peaceful avenues, including the holding of a peaceful gathering.

If Datuk Veerasingam is truly opposing the land acquisition, he should respect the people’s right to peacefully gather and support DAPS’s call that the Indian community should turn up in full force at the Hearing scheduled on August 25, 2010.

If MIC is truly opposing the Federal government’s acquisition move, then its Cabinet member Datuk Subramanian should raise the issue in tomorrow’s Cabinet meeting to get the proposed acquisition immediately rescinded.

Empty talk like “giving assurance that the MIC would ensure that the prime land would remain with the DIA”convinces no one.

In fact, if MIC was effective and BN government had learned its lesson from the 2008 general election results, such proposed acquisition which is insensitive, unfair, unnecessary and unjustifiable will not have taken place at all.

Let me remind Datuk Veerasingam that if MIC is not able to help in protecting the DIA land, it should at least not hamper or criticize the DAP‘s efforts to do so.

Indians must again rise up to the occasion and play their kingmaker role in the next election to deal BN with its worst electoral defeat

Speech by M.Kula Segaran, DAP National Vice Chairman and MP Ipoh Barat at the Indian community meeting held at 2pm on August 15 , 2010 in Sitiawan to discuss the Federal Government's proposed acquisition of DIA land.

Local Indian community makes it clear that under no circumstances shall the 2hectares of DIA land be acquired by the Federal Government

Yesterday, a meeting of local Indian community leaders was held in Sitiawan to discuss the impending proposed acquisition of the Dindings Indian Association (DIA) land by the Federal Government.

Among those who were present and spoke at the meeting were Pennag Deputy Chief Minister YB Professor Ramasamy, PKR MP YB Gobalakrishnan, DIA president, Dr.Jayabalan, Dr.Shanmugam and myself.

The 2 hectare land was purchased in the 1930’s with the hard earned money contributed by the rubber tappers from over 35 estates in and around Sitiawan.

The acquisition of the whole piece of land is scheduled to be heard at 10 am on 25thAugust2010 at the Manjung land office.

Participants at the meeting reflected the sentiment and stand of the local Indian community, that is, under no circumstances shall the land be acquired as:-

1) this is the only land the Indian community can say it’s theirs and it was bought with their sacrifice

2) there are so much of lands around Sitiawan which can be acquired to build a school etc.

In fact, just about 1/2 kilometer from the proposed acquired land, there are 2500 acres of oil palm estate known as Sg. Wangi Estate which belongs to the Sime Darby group, a Government linked company (GLC).Some 15 years ago, about 150acreas of land were acquired from Sg. Wangi Estate by the Defence Ministry to build an airport.

Hence, the question that arises is that if acquisition of the estate land could be done 15 years ago to build an airport, why can’t the land be acquired now to build a school? Why should the Federal government target the DIA land?The Federal government’s move to acquire the DIA land is viewed as unfair, unnecessary, insensitive and unjustifiable.

The local community feels that whatever compensation, whether in terms of money or alternative land is unacceptable and will be repulsive to the community.

The community wants this land to be declared "Little India" to house Indian cultural and business activities.

The meeting suggested that people should be mobilized to attend the acquisition meeting scheduled on 25 th August, 2010 at Manjung land office.

Pamphlets distribution will be done during house to house visit to call on the people to rise to the occasion and make their strong and clear stand that under no circumstances shall the land be acquire.
Indians form less than 10% of the population in this country.

We are said to be the better ones in the fields of medicine, law and the likes. Yet 40 percent of detainees at Simpang Renggam detention camp are Indians. Why? This is sad but this is not the only sad fact. The Indians in Malaysia are also said to have:-

1) the highest rate of school drop outs
2) the highest illiteracy rate
3) the highest suicide rates
4) the highest without identification card and birth certificates
5) the highest number of single mothers

6) the highest rate of alcoholics
7) the highest rate of jail detainees

But let’s be clear that the Indians problem is not a race problem but a Malaysian problem.

If MIC has been effective, the Indians would not have been so marginalized with so many problems unresolved. If BN has been fair, the majority of Indians who have been said to be BN’s traditional loyal supporters for decades would not have helped create the political tsunami which gave BN its worst electoral debacle in the 2008 general election.

March 8, 2008 was a historic day not only in the electoral record and of Malaysia; it was a day that the Indian voters created history as they had become the “Kingmakers” in the general election.

Indian votes had helped Pakatan Rakyat to capture power in the states of Penang, Perak, Kedah and Selangor. The political awakening of the long marginalized community had also helped smash the traditional two thirds parliamentary majority enjoyed by the BN.

Many political writers have written about the Indian vote swing against the BN and said that the Indians had woken up. Indeed the Indian voters woke up and roared like a lion.

But today, MIC president Dato Samy is still sleeping. He still does not get the political message from the Indian political awakening.

Neither has the BN government woken up. Many BN politicians seem to believe that come next general election, the Indian voters will swing back to the BN like the pendulum. Some seem to believe that when the Indians’ emotions have died down, they will run back to the BN. Some definitely believe that the Indians can be easily pacified with the dishing out of some political goodies.

The Prime Minister himself is chairing a Cabinet Committee for Indian Community. But what has the Committee done to date? Nothing much in terms of policy changes to help the Indian community.

So loud is the 1 Malaysia slogan . BN says it means justice for everyone. But can all Malaysians feel that there is an equal place for everyone under the Malaysian sun?
The slogan rings hollow.

But we must ponder why has the Prime Minister’s approval rating among the Indian community gone up?

According to a public opinion survey carried out in May 6 to 16 this year by the Merdeka Centre, Najib’s popularity rose to 72%, up from 69% in April this year.
The survey saw a massive 80% approval from Indians, followed by Malays at 77% and Chinese at 58%.

A survey conducted and released in June last year found that since becoming the Prime Minister in April, support for Najib came from the Malay Malaysian and Indian Malaysian communities, with 53% and 64% expressing satisfaction respectively. Only 24% of Chinese Malaysian respondents said they were satisfied.

In the Bagan Pinang and Hulu Selangor by elections, the results too showed Indian vote swing back to the BN.

May be this is why SamyVellu can afford to continue sleeping and BN can continue to do little for the Indian community.

In fact, the BN government is again beginning to become arrogant and insensitive. One example is the recent proposed acquisition of the Dindings Indian Association land situated in the center of Sitiawan.

This piece of land was bough with contribution by Indian rubber tappers in the 1930’s and yet the BN Government could be so unfair and insensitive to want to acquire it!

I must be frank and realistic in admitting that the Indian voter swing back to the BN is not without basis. Pakatan Rakyat must see this as a wakeup call and implement strategies to arrest the swing.

I wish to remind the Indian voters that MIC and the BN government have not changed much or done much for the community since the 2008 general election.
A kick is not enough .The Indian voters must therefore give the BN a second and harder kick in the next general election.

The Indians must again rise up to the occasion and play their Kingmaker role in the next general election to deal BN with its worst electoral defeat.

M.Kula Segaran

New voters will be a significant factor in the Pakatan Rakyat’s battle to capture both Perak and Federal power in the next general election.

Speech by M.Kula Segaran MP Ipoh Barat and DAP National Vice Chairman at the meeting of "Assistant Registrars" at Perak DAP HQ on 14August2010

According to statistics released by Election Commission, there were about half a million eligible Perakians who had yet to register themselves as voters.This constituted about one third of the 1.3 million eligible voters in the state.

Nationally, about 3 million eligible citizens had yet to register. It is pathetic that for a nation which has had 13 general elections, the majority of these unregistered voters have not signed themselves as eligible voters.

Registration of new voters is an important responsibility of the Election Commission (EC). Hence, the only conclusion we can make is that EC has failed to do its job.

It should not be the job of the political parties, but DAP has tried to play its part in registering new voters.59 DAP Assistant Registration Officers were appointed, and DAP Perak has been carrying out new voter registration campaign over the last few months. .

Sad to say, though DAP has been very aggressive in carrying out the campaign, the number of new voters we have managed to register is still minimal compared with the half million Perakians who ought to register themselves as voters.

This is why DAP has been calling on the Election Commission to make it automatic for all citizens reaching the eligible age to become registered voters.

But for obvious political reasons, neither the Election Commission nor the BN government is prepared to implement such a plan.Hence, DAP and PR component parties will have to treble our efforts to ensure more Malaysians sign up as voters before the next election.

Undoubtedly, new voters will be a significant factor in the Pakatan Rakyat’s battle to capture both Perak and Federal power in the next general election.

Therefore, I call on all PR supporters to help the voter registration campaign by getting their next of kins, neighbors, friends and colleagues who are eligible to sign up as voters to immediately do so that they can help bring about PR’s victories in the next general election.

Indian Community strongly objects to the proposed acquisition of the DIA land and demands that the move be dropped

Following the Federal government proposed compulsory acquisition of the 2 hectares land belonging to Dindings Indian Association (DIA), over one hundred non government organization and community leaders had attended a dialogue at the Gandhi Hall in Sitiawan yesterday to discuss the issue.

They were all concerned about and shocked by the proposed acquisition of the only community property in Sitiawan.

Questions were posed as to the necessity and motive for the proposed acquisition.

I briefed all that the proposed acquisition is unnecessary, insensitive, unfair and unjustifiable.

Sentiment was expressed as to why the Indians have to protest to protect their own property. Isn't it the duty of the government to protect the weak and the poor?
Why is the government not bothered how the community will be affected by the acquisition?Many felt that the Indian community being weak and vulnerable and hence need "protection" but harap pagar, pagar makan padi is the sad reality now.

The meeting expressed the community’s feeling and stand that this property is theirs and theirs alone.

Their argument is that the ordinary rubber tappers had long term vision when they bought this property.

Therefore, they want this property to be "little India" at all times.

The meeting strongly objected the proposed acquisition of the DIA land and demanded that the move be dropped.

டிண்டிங்ஸ் இந்தியர் சங்க தீர்மானங்கள்

டிண்டிங்ஸ் இந்திய சங்கத்திற்கு சொந்தமான 2 ஹெக்டர் நில விவகார கூட்டம் நேற்று சித்தியவான் காந்தி மண்டபத்தில் நடைபெற்றது. சித்தியவான் இந்திய மக்களுடன் கலந்தலோசித்தப் பிறகு கீழ்வரும் தீர்மானங்கள் ஒருமனதாக ஏற்றுக்கொள்ளப்படாது.

தீர்மானம் : இந்த தீர்மானத்தை ஒரு முன்னோடியாகவும், இந்திய மக்களின் ஒற்றுமையின் குரலாகவும் கருதி கீழ்வரும் அணைத்து தீர்மானங்களையும் மத்திய அரசாங்கம் அங்கீகரித்தல் வேண்டும்.

1. 2 ஹெக்டர் பரப்பளவு கொண்ட டிண்டிங்ஸ் இந்தியர் சங்க நிலம் எங்களின் மூதாதையர்கள் தொட்ட தொழிலாளர்களாக உழைத்த வியர்வையின் பணத்தில் வாங்கப்பட்டவையாகும். இந்நிலத்திற்கு பல இன மக்களின் ஆதரவும் கொடையாளர்களின் பங்கும் அளப்பரியது. எந்த ஒரு காரணத்தினால் இந்நிலத்தை மத்திய அரசாங்கம் இந்தியர்களின் சிறப்பு அம்சம் கொண்ட நிலமாக கருதி அதனை கைப்பற்ற முயற்சியை கைவிடுதல் வேண்டும்.

2. மத்திய அரசாங்கம் மிகவும் உன்னிப்பாக இந்நிலத்தின் சரித்திர அம்சங்களை கவனித்தால், இந்தியர்களின் ஒற்றுமையில் இந்தனை காலம் பராமரித்த இந்த நிலத்தின் மாண்பை அறியவாய்ப்புண்டு. இந்நிலத்தைஅபகரிக்கும் திட்டத்தில் விருப்பம் தெரிவித்த மத்திய அரசாகத்தின் நிலைபாட்டினை சித்தியவான் வட்டாரத்தில் வாழக்கூடிய இன்றைய இந்திய சங்கதியினர் முற்றாக எதிர்க்கும் பட்சத்தில் அத்திடத்தை கைவிடுதல் வேண்டும். இந்தியர்களின் உணர்வுக்கு எதிர்மறையாக செயல்பட எண்ணம் கொண்டிருந்தாள் அவை சித்தியவான் வாழ் இந்தியர்களின் வளர்ச்சிக்கும் வருங்காலா சங்கதியினருக்கும் அச்சுறுத்தும் திட்டமாக வகை செய்யும் என்பதனை அறிதல் வேண்டும்.

3. இந்நாட்டு அங்கிகாரப்பெற்ற குடிமக்களாக இருந்த பொழுதும் இந்தியர்களுக்கென்று சிறப்புரிமை வழங்கப்படாத பட்சத்தில் சித்தியவான் வாழ் இந்திய மக்களின் பாரம்பரிய சொத்தாக விளங்கும் டிண்டிங்ஸ் இந்தியர் சங்க நிலத்தை மத்திய அரசாங்கம் பாதுகாத்து அதற்க்கு இந்திய பாரம்பரிய நிலம் என்று ஆணை பிறப்பித்தல் வேண்டும்.

4. மத்திய மற்றும் மாநில அரசாங்கம் இரண்டும் ஒன்றிணைத்து இந்தியர்களின் சொத்துடமையை பாதிக்கும் அளவிற்கு எந்த ஒரு நிலத்தையும் அபகரிக்காமல் இருக்க உறுதிசெய்தல் வேண்டும். இந்திய சொத்துடமை வளர்ச்சி எட்டா கனியாக இருக்கும் பட்சத்தில் இந்நிலைக்கு அரசாங்கமே முழுமையான காரணம் என்ற கூற்றை ஏற்றுக்கொள்ளல் வேண்டும்.

5. இனிவருங்காலங்களில் இது போன்ற இந்தியர்களின் சொத்து அபகரித்தல் முற்றாக தடைசெய்யும் வகையில், 50 வருடங்களுக்கு மேலான நிலத்தை இந்தியர்களின் சின்னமாகவும் மற்றும் இந்தியர்களின் பாரம்பரிய நிலமாகவும் உடனடி அங்கிகாரம் வகைசெய்யும் சட்ட மசோதா நிறைவேற்றல் வேண்டும். ஆகவே இது போன்ற செயல்கள் கண்டத்திர்க்குரியவை. மேலும் இச்செயல் தொடர்ந்தாள் அவை இந்தியகளுக்கு துரோகம் விளைவிக்கும் செயலாக கருதப்படும்.

6. இறுதியாக, டிண்டிங்ஸ் இந்திய சங்க நிலத்தை இங்கிருக்கும் இந்திய மக்களின் விலை மதிக்க முடியாத சொத்தாக கருதி இந்நிலத்தை " சித்தியவான் லிட்டில் இந்தியாகவாக" பிரகடனம் செய்தல் வேண்டும் என்ற கோரிக்கையை ஒற்றுமையுடன் சமர்பிக்கிறோம்
