– “For the betterment of MIC and Barisan Nasional (BN), I’ve decided to withdraw the High Court suit together with other remaining 2 plaintiffs namely Datuk Henry Benedict Asirvatham and Datuk V.Rajoo at the Federal Court today,” said AK Ramalinggam in a press statement issued today.

After 3 years of court battle pertaining MIC-ROS issue, yesterday we have officially wrote to the lawyer of MIC President Datuk Seri Dr.S.Subramaniam stating that the remaining 3 plaintiffs are withdrawing the case and that we are discontinuing the MIC-ROS case suit.

“The decision to withdraw the suit against Datuk Seri Dr.S.Subramaniam and ROS were agreed upon series of reconciliation talked held between our side and Datuk Seri Dr.S.Subramaniam. The decision has been taken into consideration for the sake of our beloved party,” he continued.

“I strongly believe, the time has come for us to reconcile and strengthen the party after 3 years of court battle. As per agreed during the reconciliation talk, all the members outside the party for the last 3 years will be welcomed back into the party.”

Rama stressed that It is time to put aside our individual differences and unite for the sake of the Indian community. As the largest and oldest Indian based party in this country, MIC has a long historical commitment to Indian Community. Anymore attempt to prolong the legal challenge definitely will have negative impact during the 14th General Election.

As requested by our beloved Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib bin Razak, we the factions of former President Datuk Seri G.Palanivel will work closely with MIC President Datuk Seri Dr. S.Subramaniam to rebuilt the party into its glorious days once again.

“I sincerely would like to thank those who had stood firmly behind us for the last 3 years fighting this court battle together. It’s a blessing for all of us to put an end for this and I am confident that this decision and reconciliation will put MIC back on track to face the 14th General Election,” said the former MIC Strategic Director.
