KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC faction aligned to deputy president Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam lodged a report on Thursday, calling for the police to “shut down” a central working committee meeting by the president.
Former MIC Youth chief Datuk T. Mohan said Datuk Seri G. Palanivel had no authority to call for a meeting as he had been removed from the party.
Palanivel had said he would chair a meeting in Putrajaya on Friday to fix MIC’s re-election dates.
According to sources, the meeting will consist only of those loyal to Palanivel, leaving out about 15 members who are backing Dr Subramaniam.
“I don’t know why suddenly Palanivel is asking for this meeting, it is uncalled for. We will make a complaint to the Registrar of Societies (RoS),” Mohan said at the Dang Wangi police station where he and 15 members lodged the report.
“My advice to Palanivel is to see what is happening in MIC, say its enough, draw his supporters back and we sort it out during the AGM. Follow the MIC constitution, its very straight forward,” he said.
Last week, Subramaniam announced that branch elections will be held next month, and the whole process to be completed by October.
Palanivelâ€™s call for the meeting sends the message that he will also be organising the re-election, meaning there will be two re-election plans.
To add more drama into the mix, Subramaniam had earlier announced that Palanivel was no longer a member when he took the matter to the RoS without endorsement from the CWC.
The High Court here on Monday dismissed two judicial review applications filed by four MIC leaders and its strategic director.-The Star
