Kuala Lumpur, Sep 30 (ANI): Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) chairman P. Waythamoorthy is angry over news that there are plans to connect the movement with the newly-registered Malaysian Makkal Sakthi Party (MMSP).
He said in a statement that the MMSP to be launched by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak on October 10, is capitalising on the term Makkal Sakthi (people power) that was popularised by Hindraf in November 2007, the Malaysia Nanban reported.
Hindraf supporters took to the streets of Kuala Lumpur in the thousands to press for the rights of the Indian community, he said.
Waythamoorthy added that Hindraf was instrumental in the political tsunami that resulted in the Pakatan Rakyat coalition oming to power in five states in the March 2008 general elections. (ANI)
