Batu Caves temple committee has to go

MIC should stop using the Batu Caves temple or any other temple in Malaysia as a place for their political campaigns. Yesterday, during his speech at the Batu Caves temple, Samy Vellu mentioned that he was the one who built everything for the temple and only Barisan Nasional and the MIC could bring all the development needed for the Indian community.

He also said the opposition parties could dream on in their bid to win the general election and eventually form a new government. Looks like Samy already knows the result of the coming elections.

Obviously with so many election frauds like postal and army votes and phantom voters, even I'm sure there will never be a day the opposition will be the ruling party.

I won't deny the fact that recent renovations at the Batu Caves temples are via the initiative of Samy Vellu and the temple committee but then were they using their own pocket money for Samy to be bragging about it?

It was the money collected from the devotees via donations and also allocations received from government which is actually our tax money. It looks like MIC is so desperate of late that they have to talk about the BN and MIC at every gathering. Samy, stop crying in public!

Politics and religion should not be mixed. The very first thing that should be done is to elect a new committee for the Batu Caves temple - one which is not a crony of any political party. Spare our gods from politics.

Samy even told the local media that the crowd for this year's Thaipusam festival at Batu Caves was the same with no drop in numbers. Samy, are you day dreaming or what? I live around Batu Caves and I was there almost all the time for past two days and I witnessed myself that the crowd was much less than previous years. So why lie Samy?
