MIC to set up hotline to address the problems
...of the Community
Ahhh finally. But aint it a little bit too late, uncle?
He said this after meeting the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on Wednesday.
The Prime Minister had also asked MIC to set up a special committee to analyse and address socio-economic problems faced by the Indian community.
“We expect calls on problems on Tamil schools and Hindu temples. Other problems can also be channelled to the hotline,” he told reporters after chairing the party’s central working committee meeting here yesterday.
Samy Vellu said the problems would be referred to party leaders according to their portfolios.
He said the telephone and contact numbers of the hotline would be published in the local newspapers as soon as it was set up.
Asked if all these measures were due to the Hindraf protest last Sunday, he said MIC had always submitted a report to the Prime Minister every six months.
