Datuk Seri Samy Vellu A/L Sangalimuthu

Friday, May 4, 2007

Datuk Seri Samy Vellu is a veteran in Malaysia political arena. He is undisputed Minister. He always defends himself all out, transferring liabilities to others, even to God.

He once replied to criticism made by Datuk M Kayveas by saying "Who is him to criticize me? He is not even a minister." and indeed, Kayveas is only a deputy minister.

He once said "Mereka kata saya kafir, saya mana ada kafir.."

When Datuk Shahrir Samad, PAC Chairman made adverse comments againts Samy's ministry, he replied "Let Shahrir do it, he is a big man, he can do anything."

He once said "Keadilan can go to hell!." and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Keadilan Advisor replied "Samy Vellu himself is hell, where else to go?"

The most outstanding comment made by him is when he was asked about one of the landslide case that took place, where he replied "Ini terjadi bukan Samy Vellu punya kuasa, Tuhan punya kuasa." Not even God can escape the blaming of Datuk Seri Samy Vellu.

I recall the reign of ancient Chinese Emperors, where an emperor will be overthrown once the country is doomed with natural disaster, as it is believed to connote the wrath of "The Heaven".

Nevertheless, Datuk Seri Samy doesnt share the same fate.Despite of the land slide, water burst at the Putrajaya buildings and the latest (at the time this article is written) the crack of the wall of justice (court house of Jalan Duta) and the roof of justice falls down (Magistrate Court No 4 of Kompleks Mahkamah Jalan Duta), Datuk Seri Samy Vellu still at his seat as Work Minister.

According to Wikipedia, He is the second longest serving minister in the country after Dato' Seri Rafidah Aziz.

Maybe its time for Datuk Seri Samy Vellu to follow the footstep of the former Prime Minister. I recall the remarks made by Raja Azlan Shah (as His Majesty then was) in the case of Pengarah Tanah dan Galian, Wilayah Persekutuan v Sri Lempah Enterprise Sdn Bhd. [1979] "Every legal power must have legal limits, otherwise there is dictatorship"...
