MCA man vows to fight Indian poverty

The BN candidate for Seremban says he’ll teach them how to catch fish.
PETALING JAYA: BN’s candidate for the Seremban parliament seat today promised Indian voters he would teach them how to beat the curse of poverty.
“I believe in teaching them how to fish instead of just giving them fish,” MCA’s Dr Yeow Chai Thiam told FMT.
He said he would address the problem of unemployment among Indian youths by providing training and job opportunities.
He also promised to hire an Indian to advise him on the community’s interests and to supervise the Indian section of his service centre.
“Generally, I would like to improve the living standards of the Indian community,” said the 59-year-old physician.
“I am a man of the grassroots and I love to go to the ground and look into people’s plight.”
Dr Yeow, who heads Negeri Sembilan MCA, is in a five-corner fight for the Seremban seat. His opponents are DAP’s Anthony Loke, Berjasa’s Abdul Halim Abdullah and independent candidates Bujang Abu and John Fernandez.
Fernandez won the Seremban seat for DAP in the 2008 election. The party has automatically sacked him for contesting as an independent candidate in the coming election.
There are 102,507 voters in Seremban. About 44% of them are Malays, 41% Chinese and 14% Indians.
