An upset Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has told MIC leaders that they can do what they want to resolve the partyâ€™s crisis, but should not blame the Barisan Nasional leadership if it gets deeper into trouble.
â€œWe can only advise (them) but, if in the end, MIC leaders feel the (agreed) proposal will not solve the crisis and they want to do it their way, go ahead,â€ said the Barisan deputy chairman.
â€œDo what you want to do but if later the party becomes split and has issues and disputes, donâ€™t blame us (the Barisan leadership),â€ he told a press conference after launching a mind transformation plan towards a clean and beautiful country here yesterday.
Muhyiddin, who is also Deputy Prime Minister, said they had come up with a proposal for MIC to hold fresh party elections, which had been agreed to by MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palavinel and his deputy Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam.
â€œThe proposal is not that difficult to be implemented but taking the crisis to the court might just make matters more complicated as they will have to wait for a court decision, but that is their right.
â€œI leave it to MIC leaders â€˜who are smart, well-educated and experienced peopleâ€™.
â€œWe donâ€™t want to take sides and if they think they can resolve the crisis their own way, we will just let them do it their way,â€ he said.
Muhyiddin added, however, that MIC leaders could have consulted the Barisan leadership if they were dissatisfied with the proposal.
He was commenting on MIC strategic director A.K. Ramalingamâ€™s move to initiate a judicial review of Registrar of Societies director-general Mohammad Razin Abdullahâ€™s actions and statements on Feb 6 which declared the 2013 party elections null and void and ordered then to hold fresh elections or face deregistration.-The Star
