Dear Sirs,

Re: 1) Pass Social Welfare Act 2012 to grant all poor at least RM786.00p.m. welfare help which is the Poverty Line Index (PLI).

2) RM25.00p.m welfare granted to Indian poor is insulting as we are no  Somalia.


We refer to the above matter and are writing to your goodselves on the aforesaid matter in the general public interest.

We have received numerous complaints from especially the Indian poor. Media reports have revealed that A.Muniammah (62) is receiving a mere RM25 per month in welfare help and so is single mother M.Savunthary (49), who is receiving a mere RM30.00 per month (BH 25/11/11 at page 26). Many others are receiving RM90.00 per month.

A family of 18 including 16 children cramped up in a 650 square feet low cost flat is merely granted RM 400.00 per month. (KOSMO 12/3/2012 at page 12).

Granting a mere RM25.00 per month of welfare help to an Indian poor is the tip of the iceberg of the UMNO led government’s racism targetted against the vulnerable and gullible Indian poor. In any event we are no Somalia!

May we bring to your goodselves kind attention that especially the Indian poor plantation workers who had been denied their lost years in the 10 acre Felda like land ownership schemes that had been granted to any Malay muslim poor in eradicating poverty “irrespective of race”. Today after 55 years of Independence these Malay muslim plantation workers are happily retired in their bungalow houses and receiving monthly income from their said land now worked on by the foreign mostly Indonesian and Bangladeshi workers. And the Indian poor have obviously been segregated

Moving forward kindly at least pass the Social Welfare Act 2012 that grants cash aid of at the very least RM786.00 per month per person for especially the Indian poor which in any event is the Poverty Line Index (PLI). Because the Indian poor unlike the Malay muslim poor are segregated from the additional RM500.00 etc welfare help from Baitulamal, Lembaga Urus Zakat, the scores of Yayasans etc. 1 Malay-sia but 2 Systems! And unlike the poor Malays, Orang Asli, Kadazan and Iban, the Indian poor have been denied their traditional villages and ancestral land as their social safety net. Even the Chinese poor have their 607 Chinese New Villages nationwide.

Mr. Prime Minister, this certainly cannot be 1 Malaysia?

Your kind indulgence in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Kindly revert to us accordingly.

Thank You.

Yours Faithfully,



P.Uthayakumar De facto leader, Hindraf

Why separate PM’s Dept Indian ETP Unit? We taught we were 1 Malaysia! : Racist UMNO segregating Indians from RM 234 billion 2012 Budget.



This is just the tip of UMNO racism in segregating and excluding the Indians from the national mainstream development of 1 Malay-sia.

We don’t need a separate Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) Unit in the Prime Minister’s Department for the Indians for this is just yet another racist UMNO agenda in segregating the Malaysia Indians from the RM 234 billion 2012 National Budget.
