Sec Gen in Trouble, Ex President Involves, Where is MIC President?
MIC is facing chaos almost every day. The former MIC President Datuk Seri Utama S. Samy Velu has lodged a police report against the party’s new secretary-general over a decision barring unauthorised personnel from entering the party headquarters in Kuala Lumpur without consent.
Samy said he had been shouted at and abused by Secretary-general G. Kumar Aaman when he had asked him about the new ruling which stopped members and the public from entering the party headquarters.
“As a trustee of MIC and former president, I rang him up to ask him who gave him the authority to do this. For that, he shouted at me and hurled vulgar and abusive words at me, saying it was his right,” Samy said in his police report.
Samy said the decision to stop people and party members from entering the headquarters was illegal.
“As far as I am concerned I have been president for 31 years and chairman of MIED and we cannot stop the general public from coming into the MIC headquarters,” he said, referring to Maju Institute of Education Development.
However, the parties Secretary-general Datuk G Kumar retaliated by lodging his own police report at the Dang Wangi police station where he said the former MIC chief had called him a “rascal” and threatened to “finish him off”.
Kumar said he had told Samy that the security measures were to stop outsiders from entering the party headquarters which also houses the MIED and Selangor MIC headquarters. He said the former party chief did not need any permission to enter the building.
Backing Samy’s report, Vell Paari, who is the former MIC president’s son and former party strategic director, maintained that Kumar had used foul language on his father Datuk Seri Utama S Samy Velu.
“I have instructed my lawyers to seek a declaration on your unlawful appointment. I also will report you to RoS for acting with an unlawful position to seek a ruling on your membership in a society,” Vell Paari wrote in his open letter.
Of all this commotion taking place, the party President, Datuk Seri G. Palanivel is still missing in action. Members and even public is looking forward for a response from the president. Presidents silent give a big question on where the party is about to lead.
