What happen to tekun scheme


I faced the same experience as well. I went to YSS office at Wisma Manickavasagam and was told the scheme is not available. The application closed back in June and no further details given.

What happened to the RM 15 million allocations by governmentfor Indian Entrepenuers which announced recently by Prime Minister? Who should we refer to?


Moderator's note:
As far as I know, Tekun loan with low interest rate is meant for only Bumiputras. However, certain portion was made available for the Indian community through the request of MIC. MIC has appointed YSS to manage Tekun loan applications. I presume the closing date is over.

இனம் தின்னும் ராஜபக்சே: கவிஞர் வைரமுத்து

சொந்த நாய்களுக்குச்
சொத்தெழுதி வைக்கும் தேசங்களே!
ஓர் இனமே
நிலமிழந்து நிற்கிறதே
நிலம் மீட்டுத் தாருங்கள்

பூனையொன்று காய்ச்சல் கண்டால்
மெர்சிடீஸ் கார் ஏற்றி
மருத்துவமனை ஏகும் முதல் உலக நாடுகளே!

ஈழத்து உப்பங்கழியில்
மரணத்தை தொட்டு
மனித குலம் நிற்கிறதே!
மனம் இரங்கி வாருங்கள்!

வற்றிய குளத்தில் செத்துக் கிடக்கும்
வாளை மீனைப்போல்
உமிழ்நீர் வற்றிய வாயில்
ஒட்டிக்கிடக்கும் உள்நோக்கோடு
ரொட்டி ரொட்டியென்று
கைநீட்டிடும் சிறுவர்க்குக்
கைகொடுக்க வாருங்கள்!

தமிழச்சிகளின் மானக்குழிகளில்
துப்பாக்கி ஊன்றித் துளைக்கும்
சிங்கள வெறிக் கூத்துக்களை
நிரந்தரமாய் நிறுத்துங்கள்!

வாய்வழி புகட்டிய தாய்ப்பால்
காதுவழி ரத்தமாய் வடிவது கண்டு
கண்வழி உகுக்கக் கண்ணீரின்றிக்
கண்ணீரை மாற்றுங்கள்!

அடுக்கி வைத்த உடல்களில்
எந்த உடல் தகப்பன் உடல் என்று தேடி
அடையாளம் தெரியாத ஒரு பிணத்துக்கு
அழுது தொலைக்கும் பிள்ளைகளின்
அவலக்குரல் போக்குங்கள்!

எனக்குள்ள கவலையெல்லாம்
இனம் தின்னும்
ராஜபக்சே மீதல்ல..
ஈழப்போர் முடிவதற்குள்
தலைவர்கள் ஆகத்துடிக்கும்
தலையில்லாப் பேர்வழிகள் மீதல்ல
எம்மைக் குறையாண்மை செய்துவைத்த

குரங்குகள் கூடிக்
கட்டமுடிந்த பாலத்தை
மனிதர்கள் கூடிக்
கட்ட முடியாதா?

போரின் முடிவென்பது
இனத்தின் முடிவல்ல
எந்த இரவுக்குள்ளும்
பகல் புதைக்கப்படுவதில்லை
எந்த தோல்விக்குள்ளும்
இனம் புதைக்கப்படுவதில்லை
அழிந்தது போலிருக்கும் அருகம்புல்
கண்ணுக்குத் தெரியாத வேர்கள்
சிந்திய துளிகள்
சிவப்பு விதைகள்
ஒவ்வொரு விதையும் ஈழமாய் முளைக்கும்
பீரங்கி ஓசையில்
தொலைந்து போன தூக்கணாங்குருவிகள்

Khir Toyo enters MIC fray, attacks Samy Vellu

Khir says Samy Vellu gave the OK to demolish the temple. — File pic

By Baradan Kuppusamy

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 12 – Former Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo has waded into the battle raging in the MIC between the Samy Vellu-Subramaniam factions by accusing the MIC president of giving the green light to demolish the Padang Jawa Sri Maha Mariammam temple that had sparked widespread anger and led to the 2007 Hindraf protests.

In an exclusive interview with the Makkal Osai Tamil daily that is the mouthpiece of former deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam, Khir, now opposition leader in Selangor, said Samy Vellu telephoned him “one night about 11pm” during the crisis and told him to pull down the temple.

“He (Samy Vellu) said Hindraf people were gathering at the temple and turning it into a protest,” Khir told the newspaper. “He said to pull down the temple to stop them and not to give them room.

“Because the leader of the community is asking, I instructed the state secretary to give the necessary instruction,” Khir said in the interview.

The demotion took place a few days before Deepavali in 2007 and angered the Indian community.

The demolition is a key reason why Indian voters rebelled and voted the opposition in the March 8, 2008 tsunami that brought the Pakatan Rakyat into power in five states.

The MIC was accused of doing nothing to stop this and other demolitions, and paid a heavy price in the polls, losing most of the seats it contested including in Sungei Siput where Samy Vellu was defeated.

The Padang Jawa demotion was the climax of several years of unremitting temple demolition by local authorities in Perak, Johor, Negri Sembilan and Selangor, all on the grounds that these temples were illegal structures.

Khir also said he will “take action” if Vel Paari, the son of Samy Vellu, continues to claim or write that it was Khir who had demolished the temple.

“I did not do it… it was Samy Vellu who wanted it,” Khir Toyo told the newspaper.

Khir’s rebuttal is part of a war of words between Vel Paari and supporters of Subramaniam, with each faction using the Tamil newspaper under their control to throw accusations at each other to influence the 1,400 delegates to the Sept 12 MIC elections.

On Aug 6 Paari had written in the family-owned Tamil Nesan daily that Indians were angry with Samy Vellu over the demolition of the temple. He said his father was not involved and the people should be angry with Khir as it was he who was responsible for the demolition.

The MIC election is seen as a do-or-die battle by many and is generating unusual heat compared to previous elections.

This is because two camps — that of Samy Vellu and Subramaniam — are going head-on by fielding their respective candidates for all the posts up for grabs.

“With Samy Vellu departing there is unusual urgency and heat in this election because the party is at a crossroads. The veteran leader is departing and two rival teams are fighting to fill the vacuum," a former MIC vice-president said.

“That’s why it is a do-or-die battle with the winner taking all and the loser disappearing from the scene,” the MIC leader said.

Samy Vellu, who was elected unopposed in March for an 11th term as president, has indicated he would quit about a year after the Sept 12 election, if at all.

Subramaniam is fighting the final battle of his career as deputy president in a three way fight between him, incumbent Datuk G. Palanivel and former Samy Vellu-blue-eyed boy Datuk S. Sothinathan.

Kg Buah Pala: Four accept house offer by developer

Kg Buah Pala: Four accept house offer by developer

GEORGE TOWN: Four of the 24 Kampung Buah Pala houseowners have agreed to the compensation offered by developer Nusmetro Ventures (P) Sdn Bhd.

Seri Delima assemblyman R.S.N. Rayer said the four signed the agreement last Friday before the offer expired on noon that day.

“Initially, 15 houseowners agreed to the offer but only four turned up to sign the deal at Deputy Chief Minister II Prof Dr P. Ramasamy’s office.

“It is most unfortunate that the rest who did not sign have prepare for the worst,” he said last night.

Asked whether the state government would help the other houseowners to negotiate with the developer if they changed their minds, Rayer said it would be difficult.

“The developer is quite firm in its stand and I don’t want to comment further,” he added.

Earlier in the day, Rayer said all the villagers should accept the double-storey terrace houses offered by Nusmetro as the houses would be built within the same plot of land.

“The developer has even agreed to build a temple. Those who missed the offer should wake up and think about the nine houseowners who had move out with less compensation, ranging from just RM40,000 to RM80,000 before the general election last year,” he said after the state assembly sitting.

Rayer also explained that his promise of protecting the village “over my dead body” was made on condition that the villagers had to vacate their homes without getting a single sen.

“The circumstances is different now.

“They’re offered double-storey houses worth about RM500,000. I don’t see any reason for me to stand in front of the bulldozers,” he said

Dear friends and Bloggers

Lim Guan Eng who potrait as a savouir of Indian in the last General Election has shown his and his political allies true color by washing his hand on Kg.Buah Pala Land Matter.

To add more salt in the wound,he said Indians always demands more and very hard to satify them. Bravo Lim Guan Eng for accredited such a remarks to us, Indians who fought and ensured your victory in Penang,perak and selangor.
I still don't seem to digest,why we Indian bloggers and columist doesn't forumized this issue and spread Lim Guan Eng's bertrayal to Indians in Kg.Buah Pala and his remarks addressing us as over demanding and unjustified.

He should pay the price for his remarks and betrayal to us. Lim Kit siang,karpal and Anwar whom we trusted and idolized turn the face to us and started to blame us for our demand" hey look so called THE BOSS, we are not over demanding or unjustified, we only asked what belongs to us, Kg.Buah Pala was sold under the new adminstration, and I have all the statutory evidence to prove that so if you want to play politics using our hard earned heritage and rights then you shall get ready for your disastorous ending in coming Election.

We have been victimized in all circumstances. BN or PR end of the day we indians are still in deep shit.

PR even worst, in only 1.5 years of controling, they have neglected the Indians and has not fullfilled any of 2008 election promised to Indians.
So morale of the story is never trusted leaders whom are desperate and threw empty promises to us in coming election, we have to think as a analytical community where we have to analyse technically and logically the contribution,fullfilled manifestos and efforts taken by any parties before we cast our votes, then we would posesses a significant demanding power although we are minority( we have shaken the 52 year old Government) so we are the deciding factor in Malaysian Politics.

Think friends and bloggers ,you can make the differences in our Community.

This is totally my apolitical view.

Sad ending for Kg Buah Pala Residents

Dear friends, & Bloggers,

I share Kg Buah Pala residents pain and frustration. Let us not jump over the gun and be too emotional. Heritage village due to 200 years and why no registration or other means of ownership been initiated for the past 52 years by the residents committe or Indian based political parties? I am not trying to add salt to the wound , let us be practical and realistic. Except our mistakes and ignorance.

Damage have been done by the previous state goverment and stop accussing the PKR goverment. Legally speaking the Kg Buah Pala residents are fighting at a loosing battle. This shows how our Indian society been influence by emotions and sentiments.

Indians : emotional or intuitive society ?

Hi Everyone,
I TOTALLY agree with VJ.
I too feel that our Indians need to have a MAJOR paradigm shift.
Stop expecting things from political drivers.
You have your future in your hands to decide.
How to go about it is another issue.
What needs to be done is for you to find out.
I was amazed how little our Indians know about what to do, how to do and whom to see to get things done. (SAD). Why do you think this is happening?
Purely because every political "driver" has stressed to our Indians that we have to depend on them (follow protocal). Otherwise no one will listen to us and assist.
This I feel is NOT true. I have approached certain departments myself and have been assisted without any setbacks. How's that possible. Well its again the fear created to our people regarding the non response from the relevant departments. Another factor will be the ignorance of our people of knowledge. Every family should instill this crave to seek knowledge no matter what it takes.
Please comment!

I was attending some business and education seminars in ipoh . Speaking to the (indian) presenter later on and asked him about the ground responses. He said the response from indians and malays lacking . It seems it's easier to gather indians for demonstration rather than such self-intuitive and self development activities .
This invokes our mind to think what's going wrong . Is our people rely solely on politics ? Is our people reluctant to change ?
Not just about money matters how about knowledge seeking ?
We've seen in this group people questioning and debating on yes or no to invest ASN 1M'sia . This is good debate as when you question it means you're thinking making this a healthy forum .
Perhaps the 'paradigm shift' in mentality has to start from home . Start with your brothers/sisters/ children .
Just remember , neither Anwar nor Najib going to knock every 2mill Indian houses and give away Rm1000 voucher monthly .
Your future in your hands . I always tell my friends , politics is like 'polishing car' . The outlook has to be nice to be tempting to sit in and drive ; but upto you to maintain the engine and other internal mechanics .

Let's stir the fire now for brigther future !


Re: The Truth - Kg. Buah Pala

"Mike Jayabalan"

rightly said bro......... ......... ........lets put this issue behind and get on with our lives....... .don't become scape goat for politcians.
how many of u guys know the thugs produced by that area.
Even now the children of this villages are not interested to rear cows, goats or chickens anymore..... .....what we have now are the elders, the last of the mohicans doing the job......... don't be carried away with indian sentiments and talk about heritage. Out of nowhere, the relatives are pouring in to get a share....... .where were they previously?? ???
Lets Concentrate on building an educated society, implant correct values and exercise tolerance.
Most importantly indians should respect each other....... ......... .look at the malays, u go to mosque, wedding or funeral,they greet each other, hug each other, immaterial whether they know each other.
Now compare the indians, go to temple , they stare at you......... ....go to wedding, they stare at you without a smile....go to funeral, they stare at you.....go to thaipusam, they beat you up ............ is this our godamn UNITY,
Wake up la Fellow Indians..... ......... .....change this ............ ....lets see a smiling indian when we cross each others path. Lets greet each other at all religious gatherings, a simple smile gesture would do.

sorry for being harsh....... ......... ......but this buah pala issue is wasting our time and energy
Dear brothers n sisters, i understand that some Indian are going thru hard shape in their life but i wonder why Indian always waste thier time by doing hopeless things. We have many ways to come up in our life. First of all Kg Buah Pala land doesnt belongs to Indians (its goverment land) then why fight and insult our Indian community. There are so many oppertunity around but we fail to grab it. Nobody is there to help us unless we help ourself. Residens of Kg Buah Pala should have own the land long long time ago but crying now at last minute. Honestly i dont blame the goverment but we act very slow. Lets think different and create a good image for Indian.

Never the less i have a message for Hindraf ' Pls dont sharp the knifes, insteed sharp our brains'
