The MIC president has declared that a meeting that was held at the Kuala Lumpur Grand Seasons Hotel chaired by his deputy, Datuk Seri Dr. S. Subramaniam two days ago was against the law.
Datuk Seri G. Palanivel, in a statement, also labelled any decision or resolution made during the meeting illegal and â€œof no effectâ€.
â€œAs stated earlier, I had not called for or sanctioned any meeting of the MIC and requested any such meeting planned to be called off. However, the meeting had proceeded despite my request.â€
According to the Cameron Highlands Member of Parliament, the meeting was held against the party constitutionâ€™s provisions.
Palanivel said he was now considering tough action to be taken against those responsible for organising the meeting.
On Dec 5, the Registrar of Societies (RoS) had ordered MIC to hold fresh elections for its three vice-president positions and 23 Central Working Committee seats within 90 days.
This is due to the irregularities found in the partyâ€™s polls at its annual general meeting.
On Jan 23, Palanivel instructed all meetings concerning the ongoing party crisis, especially those chaired by his deputy to be cancelled.
Palanivel said the instruction to halt the meetings from taking place was crucial in curbing the spread of allegations levelled against efforts to revive the party.MYNEWSHUB
