Why is the BN government being obstinate on the stateless Malaysian Indian issue?

The government under the false tutelage of MIC thinks that MIC is there to handle the situation and clamour on minuscule attempts to appease the Malaysian Indians. What fascinates is, there are 12 other component parties within the BN faction and none has come forward to lend a voice to these truly pathetic grievances that face fellow Malaysians. 

Recently HINDRAF appeared with a fine tuned blueprint to uplift the poorer and institutionally marginalized segment of the Malaysian Indians who had been perpetually neglected and amongst it was how to solve the stateless Malaysian Indian issue. You can watch it here at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YB2kz_3vB3w. They have proposed a simple solution without much bureaucracy.   

The opposition seems to be receptive to the solution and have come forward in principle and even ran a campaign recently to address this issue in a politically motivated agenda.

The socio-economical state of the poorer and marginalized Malaysian Indians is so obvious that you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to identify it. Why have the other parties within BN been silent? Is poverty, deprivation, and institutionalized discrimination exclusive only for the Malaysian Indians? Why are the component parties of BN staying silent on a politically ingrained discrimination against the Malaysian Indians? Their actions do not surprise me but casts a doubt in their sincerity as a genuine representative of the people. 

Why only MIC, in the eyes of UMNO, needs to decide what is the true representation of the Malaysian Indian when the track records clearly shows how abysmal it has been for the poor and marginalized Malaysian Indian communities? And if that was not the case, there would be no purpose for HINDRAF to arise.

The silence of component parties within the BN even when they are faced with basic human rights issues like those stateless Malaysians Indians resonate well with why HINDRAF calls them all mandores for UMNO.

Whether HINDRAF achieves its aim to eradicate the malfeasance is not the issue but on hindsight I think they definitely represent the people and their will as opposed to what is politically expedient for the lawmakers as and when it fits their own agenda.
