I lift my hat to Datuk Seri Samy Vellu for his statements yesterday about Tun Dr Mahathir, whom many accused of making racist remarks about the Indians in Malaysia.
Samy spoke with candor when reporters asked him about Dr Mahathir.
Unfortunately, his deputy Palanivel was hitting out at Dr M, 'reminding' him about his 'roots' and labelling him with unnecessary words.
We are all Malaysians. Maybe Palani has forgotten how he has risen to where he is today. If Samy can still attribute the country's development to the former premier, at least Palani can appreciate him as a former statesman whom he used to shake hands with and endorsed his capability in BN.
Yes, we can be critical over some issues. We can hammer someone if we are on the right track to do so. But to belittle a person whom we had work for and with, is really uncalled for!
