Would Umno gain if Waytha quits govt?

Indians made up almost 8 per cent of the country’s population. Recently, the police have made an alarming claim that almost 71 per cent of all triad members are Malaysians of Indian origin.

In a 2012 report, the deputy minister of home affairs Lee Chee Leong said that almost 60 per cent of the total prison inmates were Malaysian Indians.

P Uthayakumar, the brother of Deputy Minister P Waythamoorthy and a Hindraf founder, has blamed it on Umno for neglecting and excluding the Indians from the mainstream development. He said that Indians have been denied equal opportunities in jobs, business, education, licences, et cetera that would give them upward mobility opportunities.

Ironically, Uthayakumar is also part of the prison statistics. He is currently serving a jail term of two years and six months after being found guilty of writing a letter of a seditious nature against the government to former British prime minister Gordon Brown six years ago.

Weeks before the 13th general election (GE13) last May, Waythamoorthy pledged his support for Barisan Nasional (BN) after signing a memorandum of understanding with the BN government to improve the economic position of the Indian community. His action had caused a spilt within Hindraf and he was subsequently “sacked” from the faction led by Uthayakumar.

Whatever you are proposing will never ever happen or even being seriously considered by Umno !
Umno needs these mother and sisters sellers to be around to endorse any proposals Umno has and most above all to be able to claim that the non Malays partners have endorsed their proposals.
It is for this reason even the egregious Mahathir was and is urging MCA to be a partner in BN. Since when have you ever heard of the egregious Mahathir wanting or needing the non Malays to be in anything ? All he really wants is to be able to claim that whatever decisions were reached were endorsed by the non Malay partners in BN. Needless to say the so called partners are rejected by the very people they claim to represent. The proof is in the results of the recently concluded GE, this egregious Mahathir and all those in Umno no doubt are turning a blind eye into this consideration ! Their only consideration is that their proposals are, whatever they are, and were endorsed, by non Malays !smiss
