Election dilemma among Indian voters


“In relation to the job placement in Government, we are now having a 3% of Indians in the government work sector and we will further upgrade to advance the current percentage up to 7%. In terms of privilege, the government has allocated 180 million Ringgit Malaysia for the Indians in terms to consolidate any business”, said Komala.
The Malaysian Times
The Indian community makes up a majority of two million in the current population, and to picture, if Barisan National loses this majority of voters due to their decline in involvement of voting, how would it be possible for the ruling party, to prevail in this election?
Comparing the votes posted for BN from year 2004 to 2008, there is a radical drop in the number of votes. In year 2004, studies reveals that the vote count for BN was 90.87 and in year 2008 the total amount of votes dropped to 51.50 even though the percentage of electorates shows a sum of 100.00% electorates participated in the voting.
We could assume that social disharmony is an aspect to be taken into account for the decline of Indian voters.
Under the umbrella of one Malaysia, we are all supposed to be united regardless of racial, religious or cultural backgrounds.
Be it BN or Opposition, they are still serving the country in different ways; nevertheless they still contribute to the same responsibility; to make the country a better place to live instead of fighting over power.
The dispute over racial harmony can be visibly noticed when the very day, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, publicly unveiled the 1 Malaysia logo and Tan Sri Muhyiddin  Yassin said, Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Education, said “ UMNO would fight to the last drop of blood to protect Malay rights”.
Highlighting the statement said above, has this probably affected the mentality of our Indian Community to not vote as they are perception that the government is biased?
How can this type of biased statement be announced especially in a 1 Malaysia seminar? Shouldn’t the statement be general and not too specific to ensure that the government is not mistaken by the Indians and even Chinese?
This may be an explanation to why Indian voters are fading away time to time.
COMMENTS
To a further study on why Indian voters are declining; interviews were conducted by TMT reporter, in random with the public to observe their views on the decline of Indian voters.
“I personally feel that there is a decline in Indian voters it is probably due to the distribution of wealth to the respective races, not on an equal basis and the Indians are looking for fairness”, said Ahamad Azmi Alip, 36, a Bank Executive.
“The Indians is not given adequate chance to fill the government jobs regardless if you are a Malay, then only you may be a part of the government sector, I also think that the current government should dissolve and new government should be established”, said, Rajendran, 50, a driver.

“I would say it is all started from the government unfairness, and that can be visibly seen through the education system, whereby there is inequality when it comes to the receiving of scholarships and the entrance into local universities”, said, Raaj Kumar, 22, a Software Engineer.
In regards to these voices of the Rakyat, TMT reporter then carried out an interview with Datin Paduka Komala Devi, National Wanita MIC Chief, to give out her views based on the voices of the Rakyat.
“We are doing our part for the Indians, I also know that many are dissatisfied about the government, but we are also doing our part as a government to serve all with benefits and privileges”, said Komala.
“We have set up SITF, Special Implementation Taskforce on Indian Community, which was established to ensure that Malaysian Indians are able to access the service, programs and projects of the federal government in a just fair and equitable way, which is wanted by everyone”, added, Komala.
“In relation to the job placement in Government, we are now having a 3% of Indians in the government work sector and we will further upgrade to advance the current percentage up to 7%”.
“In terms of privilege, the government has allocated 180 million Ringgit Malaysia for the Indians in terms to consolidate any business”, said Komala.
“Meanwhile about education, we have increased the amount of intake of students into the matriculation, and the scholarships will be given to those who have reached the standard qualification criteria”. However, if they are not qualified for the scholarship, they still receive funds assistance from PTPTN thus they are still able to study, In addition to education fund assistance, MIED  also helps those who are in need of financial help for education”.
Komala also continued further by saying, “We are expecting a percentage of 70-80% of votes from the Indians for BN, because we have taken up so many initiatives for the betterment of the Indians”, added Komala.
Thus we can conclude that the, Malaysian government must focus on building a strong, impartial executive, legislative and judiciary system, as a result to keep up with the Malaysian society of today. The government must grow up and shed its childish race-based mindset.
