MIC vice president Datuk M. Saravanan is confident that voters in Tapah would not be fooled by unrealistic promises made by the opposition.
Saravanan who will be defending the Tapah state seat said unlike the opposition the Barisan Nasional (BN) has been working hard for the betterment of the people by fulfilling all promises made.
The incumbent who is also the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing deputy minister will face PKR's Tapah (Cabang) chief Ridzuan Bani and Hindraf leader K. Vasantha Kumar in a three-cornered fight.
He added that come May 5 (polling day), the people would be able to vote wisely after evaluating which leader would be able to continue the development enjoyed by the people.
"The competition that I will face cannot dampen my spirit to continue working hard to retain the seat and ensure Barisan Nasional (BN) continue to rule," he told reporters after launching a Special Loan Scheme for Indian Taxi Drivers in Batu Caves, Gombak, near here, today.
In the 2008 general election, Saravanan defeated PKR's Tan Seng Toh by a 3,020-vote majority.
The Tapah constituency has 38,236 registered voters comprising 47.27 percent Malays, 31.7 percent Chinese, Indians (20.66 percent) and 0.37 percent others.
