THE Tamil press continued to report comments from political and community leaders over the controversial statement on Tamil schools made by People’s Progressive Party president Datuk M. Kayveas on March 6. 

In Malaysia Nanban, MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu defended the daily over the demonstration by PPP members outside the newspaper’s headquarters in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday.  

Samy Vellu was quoted as saying that the daily need not fear and should continue to perform its duty by reporting and voicing its views. 

Tamil Nesan reported that 31 Indian families in Falim near Ipoh, Perak were relocated to nearby low-cost houses. 

The daily said Perak MIC chief Datuk G. Rajoo handed over guarantee letters for the low-cost units to the affected families on Tuesday. 

Rajoo commended the efforts of Pekan Falim branch chairman M. Segaran in relocating the affected residents to the low-cost housing scheme.
