I am humbled and happy to share with you the concern and kindness offered towards the Indian community by our beloved Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak when announcing the 11th Malaysia Plan (RMK 11) recently.

Humbled, because a few of us from the community were able to provide good suggestions for the prosperity of the community, and happy because the Honourable Prime Minister listened to the feedback from the Indian community when he was developing the RMK 11.

Many of our proposals were considered and included in the RMK 11 by the Honourable Prime Minister. This proves that the government is committed to listening to solutions and ideas that originate from the Indian community.

In fact, the RMK 11 proposal is an extension of the Special Cabinet Committee on Indians Affairs initiative that delves deep into the areas that most impact and affect the Indian community in Malaysia. The committee which is chaired by the Honourable Prime Minister himself and ably assisted by Datuk Seri Dr S.Subramaniam, the Minister of Health and Deputy President of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC), is responsible and accountable in managing the multiple dimensions of mainstream development in the country.
