I refer to the recent invitation by Hindraf Chairman P.Waythamoorthy to Keadilan leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to discuss the socio-economic problems faced by the Indian community.
Keadilan welcomes the efforts of NGOs and other types of organizations which work to improve the well-being of communities which face serious problems and have been left behind in consequence of neglect and indifference by the BN government.
Tian assigned for prelim discussion
In this context, we are supportive of Hindraf's efforts to improve the situation of marginalised sections of the Indian community.
As laid out in Buku Jingga and our Common Policy Framework, Keadilan and Pakatan Rakyat is committed to addressing the needs of all communities irrespective of their race. This commitment has been made a reality in states held by Pakatan Rakyat after March 2008.
In this regard, we have nominated a Vice President of Keadilan and MP, Sdr Tian Chua to meet with Mr.Waythamoorthy to engage in the discussion requested by Hindraf.
