Kuala Lumpur, Jan. 28: Malaysian Minister and President of the Malaysian Indian Congress S. Samy Vellu has said that he would like to be more open to the views of Indian youths in the country.
According to the online version of The Strait Times, Vellu said he appreciated the role of Indian youth in bringing positive changes to the community, and added that his doors are open for an interaction with them.
He added that he would promote a similar message to the many Indian professionals in the country.
"The MIC will work with anyone who wishes to see the progress and development of the Indian community, but we will fight to the ground those who poison the minds of the Indians," the website quoted him, as saying.
Samy Vellu said Indian youth played a major role in ensuring that the community remained united, calling them a force that would shape the future direction of Indians.
He also admitted that there had been "weaknesses" in the government's implementation and delivery system that led to Indians sometimes losing out in various fields.
"But we promise to rectify them. There are weaknesses, but they can and will be corrected. We will adopt a more practical approach."
