PM open to MIC proposals

Meanwhile, MIC President and Works Minister Samy Vellu said Prime Minister Pak Lah is sympathetic and open to proposals forwarded to him by the MIC leadership concerning socio-economic ills affecting the Indian community.

Samy Vellu said PM had directed his deputy, Najib Razak, to study the proposals and work with the MIC leadership to conduct periodic reviews to address the plight of the Indian community.

"The periodic review is to ensure that the proposals agreed to are carried out effectively,"Sam said. Samy added that the proposals included budget allocations under the Ninth Malaysia Plan to ensure that the Indian community would not be marginalised when the country achieved its "Vision 2020" aspirations.
