I had a chance to go through briefly the freemalaysiatoday news portal today. To my suprise, I come a cross a report quoting Penang Deputy CM II Prof.Dr.Ramasamy bestowing a grand title on P.Uthayakumar, the Human Rights Party leader, as a Hooligan Racist Party Leader. Malaysian Indians still remember P.Uthayakumar as a grasroot activist who was detained under ISA for his involvement in HINDRAF activities which managed to gather nearly 40,000 Indians to go on KL streets on 27 November 2007.
Malaysians are also pretty aware that Pakatan Pembangkang came to power only with the support of HINDRAF supporters and symphatisers. Even Dr.Ramasamy from no where won the election and appointed by DAP Lim Guan Eng as the Deputy CM of Penang for his contributions that for discrediting and alleging Dato' Seri S.Samy Vellu, MIC President, as an errant boy 0f UMNO or in his popular term as a 'mandor'.
It looks like Dr.Ramasamy is very fond of bestowing titles at his will to leaders of Indian origin only such as, earlier SamyVellu and now Uthayakumar. It is also suprising for me to note that the one time popular activists, Dr.Ramasamay , is addressed as the Mandor for Lim Guan Eng by the Penangites.
