Samy Vellu to Pakatan: What have you done?

The former MIC president challenges Pakatan Rakyat-led Selangor to reveal what it has achieved for the state.
KUALA LUMPUR: Former MIC president S Samy Vellu has challenged the Pakatan Rakyat-led Selangor government to reveal its achievements over the last four years rather than ride on Barisan Nasional’s past successes in the state.
“Pakatan has been ruling Selangor for more than four years. But the question running in everybody’s mind is what has it done all this while,” he said.
Samy Vellu, who is now Malaysia’s Special Envoy (Infrastructure) to India and South Asia, said the state government had no master plan and Shah Alam, the state’s capital, had remained as it was when the change of government took place in 2008.
“They’ve got no achievements to talk about. Malaysians now are more realistic than 2008,” he said.
Samy Vellu also described the presidential address of Prime Minister and Umno president Najib Tun Razak at the Umno general assembly yesterday as reflecting Najib’s determination and dynamism to lead Malaysia to greater heights and that only the BN could elevate the country’s economy through political stability, economic upliftment and social well-being.
“His speech made every citizen realise that since independence, the BN had never failed to serve Malaysians through modernisation, infrastructure development and immense economic opportunities,” he said.
Samy Vellu said Najib knew how best to shape Malaysia from now on towards a high-income nation through the Government Transformation Programme, Economic Transformation Programme and New Economic Model.
Najib has said that Malaysia was capable of achieving a per capita income of US$15,000 (RM45,682) in seven years’ time or even earlier.
Samy Vellu said most of Pakatan’s promises made before the 2008 general election had remained just that.
