KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC Youth, Wanita, Puteri and Putera wings have decided to postpone their respective annual general meetings to focus on the 13th general election.

MIC Youth chief T. Mohan said that the four wings were supposed to hold their respective AGMs on Dec 2 at the Putra World Trade Centre, a week before the party’s main national AGM on Dec 9.

“We felt it is appropriate to postpone because we want to focus on strengthening the party and enhancing the development of Indian community in various sectors to face the 13th general election,” Mohan told Bernama on Sunday.

Furthermore, Mohan said that 35 youth delegates would still have their voices heard as they would be participating at the national AGM to share their views.

Meanwhile, MIC sec – general Datuk S. Murugesan said that party had shortened its 66th annual general meeting to a single day to save time and cut costs, as the party would need more than RM1mil to conduct the meeting over two days.

The AGM to be held at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) on Dec 9 would be attended by 1,500 delegates and 2,000 observers, he said. – Bernama
