Yeap folks, election is coming and the goodies are rolling out…

PM suddenly woke up and realised our Indian brothers/sisters need an additional public holiday. Samy Vellu said over TV3 that since 1986, Thaipusam was not a public holiday for KL.

I never knew this PM can be such a nice guy and so considerate to the Indian community. Perhaps…someone must have reminded PM about making Thaipusam a public holiday wef. 23/1/08.

Would PM have announced a holiday if the general elections were not around the corner?

Sniff, sniff, sniff… it doth somewhat smells somethin’ like an open bribe to our Indian brethrens.

Maybe the HINDRAF 5 deserve some credit for getting us this fast tracked public holiday. Poor Samy after 28 years was unable to do it.

Whilst we are at it, can I propose that Good Friday and Easter Sunday be declared a holiday for KL? Can? Can?
