Chennai, Jan.9 (ANI): Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) president S. Samy Vellu has severely criticised the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leader, P. Waythamoorthy, for distributing pamphlets containing severe allegations, at the ongoing Pravasi Bharatiya Divas here.
All the allegations are lies. As a lawyer, he should know that he would have to pay for it if he tells lie, the Star quoted the MCI president Vellu, as saying.
The pamphlets distributed by the Hindraf leader here, reportedly contain a statement that asks the Indian Government to stop all investments in Malaysia and also refrain from buying palm oil. It also claims that there were 150,000 Malaysian Indians who are stateless.
Furious about the incident, Samy Vellu showed his faith in the Indian leadership, and said that the Indian Government and leaders were wise enough and would not listen to the call for stopping all investments in Malaysia.
Vellu, claimed that the statement which said that there were 150,000 Malaysian Indians who were stateless, was an outright lie.
He also claimed that there were 21,000 people without birth certificates, and the Home Affairs Ministry has been directed to attend to the problem immediately.
Vellu said that he would write to the Indian government to inform them that the allegations in the pamphlet were not true. (ANI)
