It will be wise for MIC to resolve its internal problems quickly and with dignity, and then move on to fight for the Indian community it claims to represent with true sincerity, courage and commitment.

It will be wise for MIC to resolve its internal problems quickly and with dignity, and then move on to fight for the Indian community it claims to represent with true sincerity, courage and commitment.


It was reported today that in response to MIC strategic director AK Ramalingam’s move to initiate a judicial review of Registrar of Societies’ actions and statements on feb 6 which declared the 2013 MIC elections null and void, an upset Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has told the MIC leadership that they can do what they want to resolve the party’s crisis, but should not blame the Barisan Nasional if it gets deeper into trouble.

Since Muhyiddin has said that Barisan Nasional will only advice, there is no reason for him to be upset and angry if his or BN’s advice is not accepted. Otherwise, that is not advice anymore.

Muhyiddin has to realize and accept the fact that the MIC leaders and members have the right to resolve their own problems the way they see fit.

I cannot and do not wish to interfere in MIC’s internal affairs , however , I will remind BN and MIC leaders that if MIC wishes to earn the respect of the Indian community,  it must be free to resolve its own crisis with dignity, that is , without any interference from Umno or BN.

When commenting on the judicial review by AK Ramalingam, Umno Vice President Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi also advised against such move and asked yesterday “How are you going to solve the problems in the Indian community if you cannot even take care of your own party problem.”

Zahid was right but he too must realize that how is MIC going to champion for the Indian community if it has to rescued by Umno which interferes with giving so called advice? 

Last month, MIC Vice President Datuk M Saravanan has said that Palanivel as President was the choice of the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib. So the truth was out and MIC has been having a puppet President who is the weakest among all its former Presidents.

I also wish to remind MIC that decades of BN government’s failed and unfair policies have resulted in the Indian community being marginalized.

It will be wise for MIC to resolve its internal problems quickly and with dignity, and then move on to fight for the Indian community it claims to represent with true sincerity, courage and commitment.
