He alleged the 10 Members of Parliament(MP) chosen by the people were "misbehaving" by not kow-towing to him after attending a last minute meetings called by his UMNO leader (whom have won the Setiawangsa seat merely on postal votes).
I would like to point to the MIC representative for Tapah that being elected representative, I am tirelessly working on the ground, helping the people where I can in KL. With the close to 60,000 voters in Segambut alone, I am rather tied down my time with the people than to say "hello" to Saravanan. The utter disrespect the Ministry show for us the 10 Pakatan Rakyat MP by the way the meeting has been scheduled, left much to be desired and I seriously doubt their claim that they are here to serve the people. While Saravanan mentioned that this is how the government operate and ask us to "embrace" the system, I would like him to check his facts. The way the Government has operated in KL for many many years and working reasonably well was without having the FT Ministry, even less him playing second fiddle in it.
Saravanan also mentioned that the MP should give the minister and the ministry opportunity to improve the lives of people in the federal capital. I would like Saravanan to face the fact that the people seems to have enough of BN running or “ruining” the city as shown by the overwhelming rejection of UMNO, BN, MCA, GERAKAN and yes, MIC. They don't want to work with this so call ministry and I would be betraying their votes if I am to be subservient to the ministry. The way I see it, the existence of this ministry serve nothing more than just to pay high wages to several loyalist and to add further roadblocks to the already congested bureaucratic system in the local government.
As a MP for this area, I can't wait to pour my all into making things better for people in Segambut. But apparently Zulhasnan and Saravanan are mounting political roadblocks to stop me and the other MPs from doing so by barricading the gates to City Hall advisory council and even City Hall itself by refusing us a direct route to the civil servants who are suppose to serve the people, through us. Saravanan blatantly accused us of playing politics but the real fact is that they are the real party doing "small movement" to stop us from effectively serving the people.
My call as Segambut MP remains the same. Mr Minister by postal votes and your deputy, get out of our way to City Hall. Do you part for the little trust people still have with you in Setiawangsa and Tapah, but don't expect us to forsake our people to rub your ego by attending whatever so call urgent workshop or last minute meeting. For Saravanan specifically, look at the agriculture and tourism problems of your constituency. On a further note, the Prime Minister should shelf the Ministry as it really seems to be doing absolutely nothing constructive and beneficial to the people of the Federal Territory while actively preventing those whose genuinely want to serve from doing so.
