That's Samy Vellu for you!

In my media statement yesterday, I liberally predicted that Samy Vellu would not apologise for his mistakes (he madea false claim that 21 Tamil schools were built over the last 5 years) and he would argue that "new school buildings were as good as or equavalent to new schools".

True enough! In his rebuttal to Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang, he actually said that "when we rebuild, they become new schools"! Hahaha...

Anyway, do you still remember what he said prior to the Lunas by-election? He said that he will not return to Kuala Lumpur if Barisan Nasional loses its seat in Lunas, Kedah. When the opposition managed to block some 20 buses of phantom voters on the polling day and eventually wrested the seat from MIC, he just pretended that he has never said such a thing.

Shame on you, Samy Vellu!

Here's an extract from a Malaysiakini report...

Rebuilt schools are new schools

Reacting to this today, Samy Vellu said that Lim was just trying to harp on the issue unnecessarily.

“He (Lim) is trying to poke to get more information he could harp on unnecessarily. Why should I give him the list of new schools ... let him go find it himself,” said Samy Vellu.

Samy Vellu also rejected claims that the 21 schools were not newly built. “There are new schools. When people relocate, we have to build a new school. Although it is replacing an older school, it is still a new school.

“We have more than 500 Tamil schools in the country and out of these more than 100 schools need to be rebuilt. When we rebuild, they become new schools,” he said.
