MELAKA: With Deepavali coming soon, a Melaka exco member has posed for photos in full South Indian traditional attire

State Housing, Local Government and Environment Committee chairman Datuk Tey Kok Kiew said he wore the attire due to the upcoming Deepavali celebrations.

"Melaka has been a melting pot for various ethnics since the Sultanate era.

"Melakans will safeguard our racial bond and we will not let any party tear our unity," he said on Monday (Oct 21).

Tey has been entrusted to head the state-level Deepavali preparations in Melaka after the arrest of state Unity, Human Resources and Consumerism Committee chairman G. Saminathan on Oct 10 by Bukit Aman over alleged attempt to revive the Liberation of Tamil Tigers Elam (LTTE).

"I will ensure that Deepavali in Melaka is a blissful event," he said.
