UPDATE: The link to post at Putera MIC is dead now but the paragraph is reproduced verbatim below. Perhaps someone at Putera MIC noted the “problem” and took it down. But still enjoy the original paragraph below – still a classic.
Kind of waiting for this type of nonsense to crop up sooner or later…
One can flower up their leaders to some extent but I guess this kind of flowering has gone over the roof.
From Putera MIC (please ignore the various spelling errors, all in one paragraph and grammar mistakes by them):-
Why P Kamalanathan is the correct candidate for Hulu Selangor?
Chief Kamalanthan has been active in politics since age of 18 year’s old where grownup from grassroots to a position where he is now. Kamalanathan’s Chief of Putera MIC is equal to a battalion’s of army, he has assist many youth’s to a correct path, helping poor students to achieve their ambition. He is a man who really cares for the people. Being like a big brothers to friends & family s this man has made few program which made most of our indian festival in limelight. He has organized National ponggal celebration, Muruku for charity , Forum’s for IPTA and IPTS students , the most record attempt program was doing kolam at up of the KL tower. Such a program’s made MIC and putera MIC top in flash news. We dont just talk, please see this images and link that we have provided.
Let me highlight what I thought was really weird:-
He has organized National ponggal celebration, Muruku for charity , Forum’s for IPTA and IPTS students , the most record attempt program was doing kolam at up of the KL tower
(The MIC man hard at work – 20 more murukus and you will get to stand for Parliament seat? Ya, right! Image source: Putera MIC)
Is this what Hulu Selangor voters really need? A guy who is good in organising events revolving murukkus and kolams? Nothing else to talk about this man?
Putera MIC bloggers may have good intentions but their act of trying to flower up their Putera leader for the up-coming elections seems to have gone the wrong way. What is Kamalanathan’s achievements when it comes to economic problems, social problems, etc. Telling that he had “assisted many youth’s to a correct path” is too general. I too have “assisted many youth’s to a correct path” – can I stand in for the Hulu Selangor by-elections as well?
Kamala is not a household name for many of us. So, if MIC is intending to introduce the man based on these “achievements”, then I have wish them, all the best. They going to need every scrape of luck they can find.
Looking at this, Pakatan Rakyat’s Zaid have far better qualities than the Putera MIC chief. Then again, with Samy Vellu still at the driver seat at MIC, one is not surprised. Again, it is the question of getting quality representatives for the people and seriously, Zaid Ibrahim has a lead on this.
