Hindraf will not help PKR's Manikumar

Athi Veeranggan (Malaysiakini)
Barisan Nasional’s MIC candidate S Ganesan would be relieved to know that he would not face the army of orange T-shirt clad electoral soldiers in the current Bukit Selambau by-election campaign in northern state of Kedah.

Unlike in last March general election, the saffron-clad supporters from the outlawed Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf), popularly known as makkal sakti, will not be campaigning against BN and MIC this time around.
Instead, Hindraf has decided to throw its full support behind PAS candidate Nizar Jamaluddin, the former Perak menteri besar, in the Bukit Gantang by-election in Perak.
