It is very sad to hear that an Indian candidate (from MIC) who is sucking up to the powerful.
And it is probably of his action, he gets the nomination from the ultra UMNO to be BN candidate for Hulu Selangor seat.
MIC and Samy Vellu failed miserably in defending their own choice of candidate (even with an Ultimatum to DPM Muhyiddin), with UMNO playing hardball in the choosing. So much for the equal partnership in BN coalition.
Malaysian Indians have been marginalised by UMNO for over half century, and will continue to be with Indians who sell their souls.
"Kamal’s defence of this ultra movement is untenable but not unexpected as after all, this is a candidate who said that he would “take back the federal seat and deliver it to Prime Minister Najib Razak as gift for his first year in office.” Like a housecat dragging in an offering of a captured mouse.

"There is dissatisfaction on the ground because Datuk G. Palanivel was not chosen to contest the Hulu Selangor by-election, MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu admitted today."
