PRESS STATEMENT FROM THE OFFICE OF YB SENATOR P.WAYTHA MOORTHY, FORMER UNITY MINISTER & PRESIDENT OF MALAYSIAN ADVANCEMENT PARTY
In another revelation, former Minister and Senator Waytha Moorthy accused Halimah of downgrading the position held by its DG from the original grade of Jusa B to Grade 54.It seems this is done intentionally by Halimah to paralyze Mitra’s function in its role to uplift the socio-economic status of the Indian community.
The DG held Jusa B rank while the Deputy DG held Jusa C. Both positions were downgraded to Grade 54 and 52 respectively by Halimah who probably did not want to see many of the innovative actions planned for 2020 to succeed.
“It is no secret that in the civil service, KSUs pay more attention when a senior officer with a JUSA position approaches him or her. As a Minister, I plan the policies; and execution done by my DG and his team. For the year 2020, I had made contacts with various multinational companies overseas including BMW, Mercedes Benz, Microsoft, GE, Siemens etc., with a view to send Indian youths who were school dropouts overseas, to be trained professionally, which will give them the capacity to earn high incomes and bring the badly-needed changes in the lives of the downtrodden community” Waytha said.“Halimah, however, who took over from me must have seen all these plans laid out and ready to be executed. By downgrading the DG position she had put a spanner in the works both in terms of cooperating with multinational companies as well as coordinating with other ministries. To date she has not justified the downgrading of Mitra as a unit which is now a powerless and paralyzed unit” he added.
