We are also asking for a representative that is the level of an executive councillor be appointed so that any issues raised by the Indian community can be brought directly to the attention of the exco.

It is only right to make such a request as the Indian community in Perak is the second-highest in the country after Selangor.

- Dr S Subramaniam in The Star

MIC got part of the wish today. S Veerasingam, one of the vice president of MIC, was appointed as special advisor to the MB with EXCO status. The list so far (with portfolios) is below:

The Perak State Committee Chairmen portfolios:

  • Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir who is also the Menteri Besar heads the Committee for Planning, Economy, Finance, Security, Land and Natural Resources, Agriculture, Housing and Religion.
  • Hamidah Osman : Industry, Investment, Entrepreneur Development, ICT, Tourism and Women’s Affairs
  • Datuk Ramly Zahari: Infrastructure, Public Facilities, Energy and Water.
  • Dr Mah Hang Soon: Health, Local Government, Consumer, Environment, Transport and Non-Muslim Affairs.
  • Datuk Saarani Mohamad: Information, Rural Development, Poverty, Welfare and Farming.
  • Mohd Zahir Abdul Khalid: Education, Higher Education, Science and Technology
  • Zainol Fadzi Paharuddin: Culture, Youth and Sports.
  • Advisers to Menteri Besar:

  • Datuk Mohd Najumuddin Elias – Adviser for Islamic Affairs.
  • Datuk Chang Ko Youn – Adviser for Chinese Affairs.
  • Datuk S. Veerasingam – Adviser for Indian Affairs.
  • Datuk Hamdi Abu Bakar – state Information chief.

The four vacant EXCO seats are still not filled and will be done so when the need arises, say BN Perak MB, Dr Zambry.

Surprisingly, Veerasingam gets a temporary lease of life. Not sure if it will give him some boost in the upcoming MIC elections.

Gerakan is also another surprise entry.

PPP did not get any representatives this time.

    Selamat pagi,Tuan kami ingin bertanya kan tentang pengawal keselamatan yang bekerja di sektor awam.Mengapa jikalau umur pengawal tersebut sudah melebihi 55 tahun,mereka tidak layak bekerja?jika kami bertanya mereka memberi alasan bahawa masalah audit.jikalau begitu bagaimana pengawal tersebut boleh menanngung keluarga nya?Jikalau kami diberhentikan dari kerja kami akan makan apa? kami hantar email untuk kepada pihak tuan untuk mendapatkan keadilan dari semua pihak.jika kami bertanya pada pemegang tender,kami di tindas.perkara ini berlaku di Makmal kesihatan Awam Ipoh dan juga di pelbagai sektor kerajaan..kami telah ditendang keluar.mereka berkata budak yang berumur 18 tahun boleh bekerja juga.Budak sementah itu boleh lakukan apa?Mengapa pekerja yang diambil tidak dinilai dari segi kesihatan dan bukan dari segi umur.
    kami meminta budi bicara pihak tuan agar menyiasat perkara ini dan mengambil keputusan yang wajar dan menguntungkan pihak yang adil.sekian terima kasih.
