Imagine this scenario: you came to a mostly-Indian populated town to wreck havoc and escape scot-free. But along came a burly Indian man and started to go all WWE on you for causing so much fuss in his quaint borough. He emerges triumphant, you bloodied from the nose on the floor. Town is safe once more.
Knowing this DC comics-worthy of a storyline might just become a reality, Perak is to have seven Indian village chiefs next year to keep the area safe and sound.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said today they would be in charge in Kampung Hendra in Sungkai; Kampung Soon Lee in Bagan Serai; Kampung Tun Sambanthan in Ayer Tawar; Kampung Kamatchi and Kampung Sungai Sumun in Hutan Melintang; Kampung Kinta Valley in Kampar and Kampung Pundut in Lumut, Bernama reports.
The state government agreed to offer the position of village chief to people from the Indian community based on the density of the Indian population in these villages, he said.
Zambry spoke to reporters after chairing the weekly meeting of the state executive council at the Perak Darul Ridzuan building here.
The village chiefs would serve for two years from next year, he said, adding that the state already had village chiefs from among the Malay, Orang Asli and Chinese communities.– BERNAMA
