PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said that Hindraf chief P. Waythamoorthy’s resignation was “disheartening”.

“His approach may be different, but he should have come to see me and talked about it before announcing he was going to resign.

“His decision is disheartening, since this was after he had signed the Memorandum of Understanding with Barisan Nasional to champion the Indian community’s agenda,” Najib said in a statement on Friday.

Najib said he accepted the application from the Indian-rights activist to resign and wished Waythamoorthy well in his future endeavors.

He said Waythamoorthy should have tried to fit in with the current administration’s system and work with colleagues to implement the Government projects that would fulfil his cause.

“I would like to stress that, in line with my dream to form a more approachable government that always gives help to those who need it, we will implement socio-economic development programmes for the Indian community, as well as the other races,” Najib said in the statement.

Waythamoorthy resigned on Monday, claiming the Government had been “dragging its feet” in delivering its promises to aid the poor Malaysian Indian community.

He joined the Government after GE13 as a deputy minister in the Prime Minister’s Office after signing with Barisan, a five-year blueprint to bring the Indian poor into the mainstream of national development.
