Samy Vellu is a liar

I’m not a bad boy, Samy Vellu tells critics

“Many people think I’m a bad boy as if I decide on the tolls, as if I put people in trouble, that I go for blood and all that.”I’m a minister of the government and I implement the decision made by the Cabinet.

“It’s not my decision to raise the toll or to reduce it,” said the agitated minister.

Samy Vellu said toll rates were decided by the government and the Economic Planning Unit (EPU).

“Privatisation is purely an EPU decision. It is then approved by the Cabinet and the Ministry of Works takes over. The ministry has to announce the toll rates, has to carry all the burden and has to face all the scoldings,” Samy Vellu said after presenting cash awards to 580 Tamil pupils who scored 7As for the UPSR exam last year.

He lashed out at certain quarters who said they would buy up the toll companies if they were in his position.

If all the toll companies were taken over, said Samy Vellu, it would cost the government nearly RM500 billion.

Is he not a member of the cabinet?

Is he not a member of the government?

Is he not the minister of the department that signed all the toll concessions?

Is the minister of the cabinet just a message boy then, a powerless thambi?

RM500 billion to take over all the toll companies? those toll companies must be world re-known super corporations then. As the KLSE market value is currently valued at around RM960 billion, and we need RM500 billion to buy them.

Dei thambi, get out of the government you liar!

Anti-Toll Hike Protest (Round 4 pics)

February 5, 2007

Date: 4th Feb 2007

Time: 4pm

Venue: IOI Mall Puchong

The good: People from all walks

The bad & ugly: Police & government


五百公众警局外声援施压 警方晚上八时释放被捕者

Anti-toll hike protest: More arrests made









Chaos, caused by the police who promised to let the opposition leaders to speak for 15 minutes but started to pulling, shoving and arresting the leaders and their followers that tried to protect them after like 2 minutes.



C’mon, fully gear up policeman vs girls & old man….the police got no shame


See, they even handcuffed the girls. The only danger there were the police with their weapons, not the protestors.





A peaceful event ended after the chaos, because of the police.


The crowd refused to disperse after the police arrested 15 people, they gathered at the opposite of IOI Mall to protest, again. That’s the spirits.


Protestors marching towards Puchong police station.


Since when Rela became a part of the armed forces? they’re just some local thugs.


Hundreds of protestors & curious residents surrounded the police station waiting for the release of the 15 arrested.

I hope more people will come out next time and see this with your own eyes, you don’t get to read this in the mainstream medias. We have the right to know about the toll concession because we are tax payer, and we pay the toll everyday.

Remember, the people should not be afraid of the government, the government should be afraid of the people.
