Waytha Moorthy resigned

Hindraf chairman P Waytha Moorthy has tendered his resignation from all positions in the government and the Senate, effective Feb 10, according to a statement from Hindraf.

He felt that government is “dragging its feet” in delivering its promises to aid the poor Malaysian Indian community.

In fact HINDRAF was against government and got people's attention in 2007 and made MIC to loose significant seats during 2008 election. In fact they were also against MIC and wanted to help indians. But, when their popularity increased, they had fractions among their teamates where one joined Pakatan, another formed Makkal Sakti party and HINDRAF became it's own party.

Najib became smart by including HINDRAF as Barisan friendly party and even gave Waytha senator post and appointed as deputy minister. It's actually to get more indian votes and support.

Nevertheless, most Indians were unhappy with Waytha acceptance to join najib's team. At least if he stayed independent, he would have better profile.

Now my concern is, who will replace him for the vacated deputy minister post?
