Thank God it’s Friday. It’s a well know fact that one of the biggest problems facing Malaysian Najib Razak is the candidates list. If only his party, UMNO, has young talents such as Nurul Izzah, Rafizi Ramli, Tony Pua, Liew Chin Tong and Gorbind Singh Deo, he would not have constipation problem that he’s having now. He’s now going into the examination hall unprepared. No doubt he’s quite popular in school especially with babes from biology class. He has spectacular interest in human anatomy (*wink*) and for that reason, he was self-appointed Women’s (Minister) Captain, on top of class monitor position. However, he fails miserably in other subjects though did rather well in Marketing and Communication.

Najib must choose well who to send to the 13th General Election battlefield simply because every single vote (and seat) counts. Gone were the days where UMNO can put any donkey or hamster as candidate and can still win handsomely as long as they’re under the blue BN banner. Today, you can’t repeat the trick of helping fishmongers peeling prawns while smiling at press photographers taking photos for the next day’s publication. But what can you do when you’ve limited quality or winnable candidates to be sent? Desperate time calls for desperate measures so Najib may want to consider veterans such as former supremo MIC president Samy Vellu. Before you die ROFL (I know it’s Friday *grin*), this is a serious proposition that Najib should consider.


First of all, Samy Vellu is still very influential especially amongst the Malaysian Indian community. If Najib believe strongly in branding and marketing, he doesn’t need to re-invent the wheels begging for “nambikai” because Samy Vellu is still the strongest brand synonym with MIC (Malaysian Indian Congress) and Indian community. Short of being called a God, the ethnic Indians worshipped and loved him so much so that they entrusted him as MIC president for a record 11 consecutive terms. Heck, he was also the longest serving minister this country have ever had. Of course, there was a little hiccup when he lost his Sg Siput in 2008 general election but that was primarily due to wrong perception that he didn’t champion Indian’s right.

Secondly, the Indian community now understands the mistake that they’ve done to Samy Vellu. It was a pure misunderstanding created by none other than Hindraf – accusing Samy Vellu as Indian traitor and all sort of absurd and baseless allegations. It was due to jealousy that Hindraf Five (M. Manoharan, P. Uthayakumar, P. Waytha Moorthy, K.Vasanthakumar and S. Ganapathi Rao) had on Samy Vellu for his ingenious and outstanding leadership in uniting and improving the Indian community’s welfare. The Indians are sad how they were conned by Hindraf over the US$1 million promised for every Malaysian Indian.


Malaysian Indian in general and Sg Siput Indian specifically are ready to redeem their past mistake by giving all their votes to BN if Samy Vellu is nominated as their candidate. Now, they know only Samy Vellu is their true champion while others are scammers. Otherwise how do you explain that even the Hindraf leader have now joined Barisan Nasional (BN), the same coalition that they despised, tactically speaking? At least Samy Vellu cannot be bribed into joining the opposition, not like Hindraf who is now serving UMNO. If UMNO can accept Mahathir and Razaleigh Hamzah who quit UMNO only to return later, surely Samy Vellu’s loyalty is beyond dispute, no?

Hindraf Makkal Sakti Joing BN Najib

Thirdly, Samy Vellu is Najib’s best bet to unite the once strong Indian community, now splits into smaller groups due to havocs created by Hindraf. If there’s one person who can re-unite the community, it has to be Samy Vellu. This veteran is like Bill Gates to Microsoft Windows and Steve Jobs to Apple iPhone. When people mention Samy Vellu, the first thing that popup into their mind is MIC and that’s precious. That’s branding built since 1979 and since Najib does not have the luxury of time to do another icon branding to attract Indian votes, the choice is obvious. Samy Vellu is like the once exotic platinum credit card – comes with premium and priceless status (*tongue-in-cheek*).


Fourthly, the present MIC under the leadership of  Palanivel is very weak. Theoretically, MIC should be able to re-unite the Indian community now that Hindraf has joined BN after made their millions. But that was not the case simply because MIC leadership is not doing its job. If people were angry because former PM Abdullah Badawi was sleeping on the job hence the country’s progress was on auto-pilot mode, MIC is now on auto-pilot even when Palanivel is wide awake so that speaks volume about his competency. Heck, even president Palanivel agreed that Samy Vellu is a winnable candidate so there’s absolutely no reason why Najib should not add another “guaranteed” seat into his pocket by fielding Samy Vellu in Sg Siput parliamentary constituency.

MIC President Palanivel

Fifthly, Samy Vellu is an extremely good motivator. There’re reasons why Malaysia’s best prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, kept Samy Vellu as the guardian of Indian community for such a long period – Samy Vellu was simply the best leader this country had ever produced (*grin*). I’ve written that this coming 13th general election is about psychological warfare. For the time being, there’re not many motivators within BN hence Samy Vellu is a good general who can motivate and boost the morale of the machinery and workers on the ground. To say Samy Vellu has past his expiry is an understatement because his soft-skills are invaluable. If veteran Samy Vellu has no value-add to the election campaign, then the same can be said about his buddy, Mahathir Mohamad. Samy and Mahathir were once so close that they fed each other foods, remember?


Sixtly, Samy Vellu is a good orator and entertainer. Why do you think there were big crowds ready to listen to Anwar, Mat Sabu or Guan Eng, come rain or shine? That’s because they are dying for entertainment and nothing more. Since government-controlled TV doesn’t broadcast the opposition’s view, they’ve no choice but to get it at the ceramahs. Besides, 24-hour of Najib pointing his index finger to the sky would make even a cat bored and sick watching it on the tube, let alone human beings. If you think Mat Sabu was funny and hilarious during his speech, wait until you see Samy Vellu talks. Samy is hundred times funnier than Mr Bean. It was said that should Samy Vellu goes jobless, he would make a damn good entertainer. Too bad, politics was thicker than entertainment in his blood otherwise Malaysia would be top producer in entertainment sector (seriously).

Samy Vellu Kemaluan Besar

Seventhly, Samy Vellu has been doing ground jobs ever since he unexpectedly lost his seat in 2008. Needless to say, people in Sg Siput loves him for his precious 5-year improving their welfare and lifestyle. Without a ministership, he poured money from his own pocket repairing temples, schools, roads and whatnot. Heck, he even solved clogged drain problems and even replaced a lamp post’s bulb all by himself. People were simply moved to tears seeing him learning the repair work via YouTube using his smartphone, hanging halfway up a lamp post. If that was not fabulous service, I do not know what is.


Eightly, Samy Vellu is courageous and this is important to instil confidence that BN is still the peoples’ choice. Mahathir chicken out from Lim Kit Siang’s challenge to contest in Gelang Patah and this demoralizes Johor BN machinery. And we have yet to hear where other DAP heavyweights would be going, let alone opposition de-facto Anwar Ibrahim’s next constituency move. The last thing Najib want is a chaos machinery due to low morale. Samy Vellu was the only veteran to roar to the frontline declaring he was ready to fight this do-or-die battle. It’s safe to say only Samy has the courage and confidence to help BN wins not only the battle but also the lost two-third majority. Now, he is courageous enough to fight from where he lost it – Sg Siput. He is the modern day hero Hang Tuah or ancient general Guan-Yu (*grin*). Well, at least he is better than Gerakan Teng Chang Yeow, no?

Malaysia 13 General Election - Samy Vellu Helps Najib

Time is running out so Najib should decide fast how he wants to strategize this war. Most importantly, he has to choose people who can value-add to the team in order to save his throne. Already, MIC is in disarray because its own president Palanivel is robbing a safe seat, Cameron Highlands parliamentary seat, from his own people, incumbent Devamany, and send him to a tougher Sg Siput seat instead. If Najib values critical Indian votes, he has no other choice but to welcome the return of Samy Vellu. It’s true that Samy Vellu was ambitious and even dreamt of making a comeback. But that is perfectly normal as without a dream, he is no different compared to a salted fish (*grin*). Thank God it’s Friday.

The press was very naughty to caught Samy Vellu into agreeing that he is a winnable candidate by well placed questions. Even the MIC president, Palanivel agrees. It only proves Palanivel is a puppet on strings.

Quote: “It’s a well know fact that one of the biggest problems facing Malaysian Najib Razak is the candidates list.”

>> That is REALLY the problem. Too many idiots Minister, Home Minister gets the top award. A bunch full of clowns in the MP seats too. MP from Kinabatagan and Sri Gading takes the leading role.

Now, even worse, Najib has to oblige all those frogs formerly from Pakatan as a token of appreciation. Those frogs from those constituency are just waiting for the judgement day for their constituency to fry frog legs. Perhaps for their pet dogs or cats for a bon appetit. Well, it’s gonna be a delicious meal.

I can empathize with Najib the headache and stress that he is having but I cannot sympathies with him for so long, for not mentioning the word “TALAQ”

Najib, Lu sendiri tak mau tolong sendiri, wa tak nak tolong sama lu.

A nice piece for a dull Saturday morning. Anyway aren’t we into interesting time where anything and everything can happen!

Eighth. He struggled for the upgrading of Tamil Schools and the learning of Tamil, a language that will not land you a job, by Indians in this country

Dear Finance Twitter,

Dude, are you for real about this Sam value?
I am Indian and I dont like the guy… most middle class Indians hate him… this kind of people including Malay poors and Indian poors adore him, thats wat ignorant people do…

But i am sure most indian poor remembers him for the Maika scandal…..

appreciate your comment gunse007 … GOTCHA – i suppose if you can’t smell what i was cooking, i can actually sell such proposal to samy vellu for some pocket money and probably he can get ah-jib kor to nominate him … muahaha …

cheers …

Kodak was a great brand too. So did Palaroid, Amiga, Atari, Sony CBS, EMI, Diner Club, etc. Too long ago? What about these: Newsweek, Palm, Borders, Blockbuster, SAAB, Hummer, Lehman Brother, Tower Records …

They were and are well known and iconic brands but all gone and never come back.

Ninethly No Value (FKA Semi Value) has undergone a hair transplant. Most men has some problem with hair loss after 40 year of age,his experience in regaining hair can be a vote puller.

Totally Agreed. Samy must come back into power. Indians do know and do regret following hindraf as you can see the outcome was disasterous for the indian community

Samy does a lot in the background. Do you know that anybody can go to Samy’s house at any time of the day if you don’t have money or food and he will bring you in and give you a nice good meal?

To run the indian community, you need a gangster… Samy was one and that’s why he ran MIC so well.

If at all the indian community want to be heard, they must bring Samy back.

Dont believe me, go drive through sungai siput town one day, you will then know what Samy can do. Even the non-indians in Sg Siput know Samy is next to god

 “We will miss Dato’ Seri Samy Vellu because he add a lot of color … sometimes a bit too much color”. Therefore, as a token of appreciation, I just want to share his famous quotes ever made by the one and only, Samy Vellu.1. Samy Velu quoted on Pos Laju: “Besoh kirim, hari ini juga sampai” 2. On one TV news when he tried to say he felt very ashamed: “Ini perkara sangat memalukan saya dan kemaluan saya sangat-sangat la besar” 3. Samy Velu said in one of his “ceramah”: “Kita akan bina satu jambatan wuntuk worang-worang kampong di sini.” Then one pakcik asked, “Datuk, sini takde sungai, buat apa bina jambatan?” And Samy gloriously replied, “Kalao takde sungai, kita bina sungai” 4. Samy’s most favorite quote on the news for the decade is this: “Toll naik sikit, banyak marah saya. You worang ingat semua ini toll saya punyer bapah punya kah!” 5. During water crisis: “Semua worang diminta jangan membuang aiyerr!” 6. On social society’s problem: “Worang-worang muda sekarang banyak suka hisap dada” 7. During blood donation’s program at Sungai Siput: “Marilah kita semua menderma dada” 8. His welcome speech in most of his functions: “Selamat datang saudara-mara semua” (It should have been “saudara-saudari”) 9. During the height of the Al-Arqam’s saga, he said in a press conference: “Saya gumbira bahawa didapati tiada pemuda MIC terlibat dalam kes Arqam” 10. At an opening ceremony for a new building: “Mempersilakan Datin Paduka Rafidah Aziz naik dari pentas wuntuk membuka kain” And of course the world’s greatest joke of all times: “Bagi saya, ini semua adalah satu pembaziran atas duit rakyat. Kita sepatutnya tidak hantar mereka ke bulan, tapi hantar mereka pegi matahari. Barulah USA, Russia, respect sama kita…” One of the reporter responded, “Tapi Dato’ Seri, matahari kan panas. Macam mana mau pergi sana?” “Cit! Itu pasal la u tara jadi mintri. Saya suda lebey 30 tahun jadi mintri, saya musti ada jalan penyelesaian. Kita jangan pergi siang, manyak panas. kita pigi malam, baru ada sujuk…”There you are people. For Dato’ Seri Samy Vellu, we wish you all the best! I copy n paste from other site.
