George Town, June 19 (ANI): The Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) is disappointed with the DAP-led state government for not coming up with any firm plan to help Indians since coming to power 100 days ago.

Hindrafs coordinator R.S. Thanenthiran said the Indian community was sad and frustrated over the lack of commitment by state government leaders.

Thanenthiran said, “Yes, the state government has ushered in changes on several fronts but it has not significantly improved the socio-economic standing of the Indian community since coming to power 100 days ago.”

“It looks like all the struggle by Hindraf leaders to highlight the problems of marginalised Indians in the country have gone unnoticed.”

Congratulating Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, Thanenthiran said the Indian community still had high hopes that something would be done soon for the community.

“We are still waiting to see how the state can help Indians in areas such as creating more business opportunities,” he said. (ANI)
