Chairman of Batu Caves Sri Maha Mariamman temple, have
held various positions in the Temple mismanagement for decades.
Millions of Indians, all over the country, contribute to
the temple fund but only a few hundred people, with an archaic
electoral system, have the power to choose the temple committee.
Police reports and legal actions taken in the past have
all failed to bring any change. On 01/02/05, a week after
Thaipusam , TV3 reported with images of the filthy rotting
garbage uncollected at Batucaves polluting the environment.
Probably, the management may act swiftly in a couple of
days to clean the place. But, who will clean the rotten
garbage management and bring some accountability?
