PETALING JAYA: Indian Malaysians should be proud of being part of the peace and prosperity that the country enjoys, said MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu. 

“We have contributed immensely to the development of this country and have become an important component of the Malaysian society,” he said in his message to mark the Parthiba Tamil new year today. 

Samy Vellu said the Indians should not rest on their laurels but should continue to develop themselves mentally, physically and socially in order to face the challenges that lie ahead. 

“The Indians must strengthen their unity as one identity. There should only be one voice and the struggle should be one,” he said. 

Samy Vellu said it was heartening to see many Indian parents placing emphasis on their children’s education, as it was vital to bring out a change in the mindset of the future generations. 

He also urged the Indian community to help strengthen national unity by telling other races about their various cultures and celebrations. 

The Sikhs observed Vasakhi yesterday while the Malayalees celebrate Vishu today.
