CAMERON HIGHLANDS, Jan 11 (Bernama) -- The Indian community in the country is much better off under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak than it was under the rule of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for 22 years from 1981 to 2003, said MyPPP president Tan Sri M. Kayveas.
He claimed that the Indians were often marginalised in terms of education, the economy and national development under the Mahathir administration.
"The Indian community totally rejects Dr Mahathir (as the candidate for prime minister) because what he did during his rule had an adverse effect on it.
"He never cared for and marginalised the development of schools, entrepreneurs, temples, NGOs and the political parties of the Indian community," he said to Bernama after handing over exercise books and calendars to pupils of Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil Kuala Terla here today.
A total of 400 exercise books and calendars were distributed to eight schools in Cameron Highlands.....
