PETALING JAYA: A man has lodged a police report against Selangor state executive councillor Dr Xavier Jeyakumar for allegedly insulting and turning him away from his office for seeking a loan.
Subramaniam Batumalai, 41, an engineer with a sewage treatment plant, said he had gone to Dr Xavier’s office seeking a supporting letter to apply for a Yayasan Selangor loan.
The engineer, who worked in the United States for 11 years before returning to Malaysia in 2004, said he had hoped to secure a RM200,000 loan to revive his fuel dispensing pump business which he sold off some six years ago.
“I have a supporting letter from Kuala Langat MP Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid and wanted to get one from Dr Xavier as well.
“When I sought his help, he insulted me, saying that I should leave the country and find a job overseas,” he claimed.
He had also prepared a detailed business plan to show the MP, he added.
Subramaniam alleged that Dr Xavier did not look at the document but merely hurled insults at him, asking why the Government should help him just because he had returned to Malaysia after working overseas.
He lodged the report at the Klang police station yesterday.
When contacted, Dr Xavier denied insulting Subramaniam, saying that what took place was merely a discussion.
“He felt that the Government should provide loans to those who return from overseas to work in Malaysia and I disagreed with him,” he said, expressing shock that Subramaniam had lodged a police report over the incident.
