MIC fight turns nasty, more calls for president to quit

Two more call for Samy to quit

KLANG: The call for MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu to step down now has gained momentum with two high ranking MIC leaders joining sacked Youth deputy chief V. Mugilan in making a similar demand.

MIC central working committee (CWC) member K.P. Samy said Samy Vellu had overstayed his tenure as party president and must leave for the MIC to recover from its current predicament.

“We lost heavily in the last general election and have also lost the support of the community that we profess to represent.

“The MIC is in bad shape and to rejuvenate it, Samy Vellu has to leave,” added K.P. Samy.

Samy Vellu had announced at the Federal Territory MIC delegates' conference recently that he would quit as party president in September next year.

K.P. Samy also said that an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) should be called to decide on Samy Vellu's position as president.

“Let the delegates decide if they want him to remain as president or want him to leave as soon as possible,” said K.P. Samy.

“Other Barisan Nasional component parties are making various changes but Samy Vellu is still talking about destroying people.”

He was referring to Samy Vellu's recent statement that he would destroy the people who tried to destroy the party, namely two people living in Kuala Lumpur and Klang.

It is said that he was referring to Klang-based businessman Ohms Thiagarajan and former MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam.

In Petaling Jaya, CWC member G. Kumar Aamaan also called for Samy Vellu's early resignation. He said Mugilan's sacking was a way for Samy Vellu to silence his critics.

Kumar said Mugilan should not have been sacked for voicing his opinion.

“Maika Holdings cannot even be managed properly, how can he (Samy Vellu) even manage the Indian community?”

“I dare him to sack me after this,” Kumar said when contacted.

He said that if he was sacked, he would hand a memorandum to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak or the King to explain the situation in the party.

“The Prime Minister won the Hulu Selangor by-election for the Indian community, not Samy Vellu,” Kumar added.
