Nominated another Hindraf representative to teach UMNO that 1Malaysia is not for one race, Malay only.

If you visit Malaysia Handicraft Center, you will understand what is 1Malaysia by Najib. Only handicrafts from Malay are exhibited where handicrafts from other races are missing or under represented.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Indian lawmaker M. Manoharan, who is serving a two-year jail term under the stringent Internal Security Act (ISA), has said he would resign as he is unable to serve his constituents.

Legal advisor to banned outfit Hindu Rights Action Front (Hindraf), Manoharan set May 19 as the date for his resignation, Star Online reported quoting a statement released by his wife S. Pushpaneela.

Nominated by DAP, Manoharan was elected from Kota Alam Shah in the election held in March last year. He has not been released from jail to attend the assembly since then.

He is one of the three Hindraf leaders serving two-year jail terms under ISA after the organisation held a protest rally in November 2007.

Manoharan cited his feeling of guilt and inability to serve his constituents as the main reasons for his decision to resign.
