Samy Vellu has blown his top off by agitated questions from the group that attended the dialogue. Those are only questions from students who "flopped" their course. If Samy were to answer questions from the opposition party, he probably turned white.
Being a president of a party (MIC), leader of the community and senior politician, Samy Vellu should keep his calm. There are even more difficult issues and questions from the rakyat that need to be explained to. If certain question cannot be answer due to fixed procedures or policies, he can just politely tell the group. No need to merajuk.
If he can't handle a bunch of students, how can he tackle those serious issues from the community ?
I guessed fixing the toilet leakage at the Parliament House is easier than tackling the real problem faced by the rakyat, huh.

Samy Vellu cuts short dialogue
KUALA LUMPUR: A six-year battle by medical graduates of unrecognised universities to win a second chance to become doctors "ended" in 40 minutes yesterday.
Forty-five of them who had come to a dialogue to get the help of Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu were left in a daze after the MIC chief walked off while answering the third question.
He become agitated on being repeatedly asked whether the group would definitely pass a three-year study programme designed to help them become housemen.
Samy Vellu said he could not provide an assurance but said it had been done by others in similar circumstances.
"What are you trying to explain to me? Are you saying I am stupid? I am trying to help you and you are trying to argue with me.
"I just said those who like the new programme can take it. Those who do not like it do not have to take it.
"Now I feel that whatever I tried to do is no good. I have been dwelling on your problems for the last five to six years. Stupid, isn't it? Stupid. Very, very stupid."
Samy Vellu then told the group that he was ending the dialogue and would not help them any more.
"I am going to put a stop to this. This is my last attempt to see something done," he said at the dialogue organised by the Maju Institute of Educational Development.
The dialogue was about a special programme recently offered by the Health Ministry to those who had failed the three given attempts at the examination.
It comprises a year of pre-clinical studies followed by two years of clinical studies.
The programme will enable graduates to transfer credit hours to a local public or private university to complete their course.
On passing, they can do their housemanship at public universities.
