Kuala Lumpur: MIC President, Datuk Seri Dr.S. Subramaniam stressed on comradeship among party members in his inaugural speech at the 71st Annual General Meeting held at Dewan Tun Razak, PWTC.

He also reminded party members to remain loyal and not become ‘enemies from within’ to betray and destroy the party that has remained a strong foundation for 71 years.

He chided some MIC leaders who named themselves as candidates for certain Parliament or state assembly seats even before the candidates for the 14th General Election (GE14) had been finalised.

“Some have claimed themselves as candidates for the GE14 when we have not even finalised the list. Such action will lead to the destruction of the party. If say three candidates declared themselves as candidates for the same seat, it would be like digging our own grave.

“Therefore, I urge all MIC members to cooperate and support any candidate named for the election,” he said in his speech on the first day of the 71st MIC General Assembly at the Putra World Trade Centre, here today.

Dr Subramaniam who is also the Health Minister urged the members to remain united and maintain the respect among one another so that everyone will be at the same wavelength approaching the GE14 as one team and not work for their own interest. – Bernama
