When queried by Malaysiakini on why there are NO Indian exco member in Pahang, he muttered something about enough of begging and accepting Pahang state government "feelings" on having no Indian representation. I see. So his political masters feelings are apparently that important huh? What happened to his 2 exco argument given BN offered none in Pahang then? He even admitted on similarity of lack of representation shown by BR-led state governments and BN's when he said,
"Why only one? Why are they following just like Barisan Nasional (BN)?"
Doing a little background check, thanks to lack of updates in their official website, MIC kept the names and records of the state assembly members who won in 11th general election and appointed as state executive committee members.
Back then, MIC had 18 state assembly members; Kedah (2), Penang (2), Perak (4), Selangor (2), Negeri Sembilan (2), Malacca (1), Johor (4) and Pahang (1). Clearly, according to Samy's argument, Kedah, Penang, Perak, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Johor state governments back in 2004 should allocate 2 exco positions to ensure the Indians are well represented.
Well, Samy must be really disappointed with BN because all MIC gotten was 1 exco position each for Penang, Kedah, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor even after winning big in the 11th general election. Despite having a sizeable population in Selangor (13.3% of total Selangor population according to Wikipedia), there are NO exco position allocated in 2004 and lest we forget, an Indian deputy chief minister and Indian state assembly speaker is totally unheard of then.
Funnily enough, on his electoral loss, he said,
"They (the voters) did not throw me out, they threw BN out. The people said they did not vote against me but against BN," he added.
I guess Samy must somehow be suffering deep inside (nevermind that the "perpetual hairpiece" of his is an eyesore). He decides to finally pour out his disappointments with BN. Not only is his recommendation for appointing a Johor state exco rejected while his begging falls on deaf ears, he risks being forgotten for good as he is now a spent force desperately creating negative media attention so as people will remember he once existed. So why is he barking up the wrong tree? Doesn't he know he should ask BN first on fair representation?
