Don't wait until they die, Ka Ting

Entitled "MCA pledges to look after welfare of cops", the Star today reported that:

"The MCA has given the assurance that it will help police personnel who have lost their ability to work, as well as the families of those who died in the line of duty.

MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting said he had asked the relevant police chiefs to notify the party if their personnel needed assistance. "

The story coincides with my blog yesterday, "Do the best P.O. justice", on the issue of welfare of the police personnel. While I call for prompt action from the Inspector-General of Police to address the problem, Ong Ka Ting gives assurance that they will help but only when the police personnel lose their ability to work or die.
It looks like, unfortunately, ASP Muniandy will have to remain in the small dark corner for a considerable period of time.
My message to Ka Ting is, "Please don't wait until they are handicapped or die. Do something now as a minister".

Why all of a sudden, Ka Ting is interested in helping the police? Is it because he felt left out with MCA being so quiet on IPCMC, tudung issue, squatgate, botakgate?

I find it laughfable when he had a publicity stunt - suit in LRT when Najib ask to change lifestyle, just so to show he is with the people. Lame.

Now this is equally lame but as the prez he has to do something. Like I always say MCA is a social club not a political party lah.
