KUALA LUMPUR: MIC leaders want action to be taken against a man who allegedly attacked Deputy Education Minister P. Kamalanathan on Sunday.
MIC secretary-general A. Prakash Rao said it was regrettable that the man displayed his anger in public.
“This is not the way to approach a deputy minister who is also the Hulu Selangor MP,” he said when contacted.
On Sunday, Kamalanathan was attending a programme in the division when he was attacked by the man, believed to be Hulu Selangor Umno Youth member, over a school teacher transfer request.
MIC national information chief L. Sivasubramaniam said the “attacker” should be punished.
He urged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel to look into the case.
MIC Youth chief C. Sivarraajh said the wing has lodged a police report over the incident.
“It is totally unacceptable for a man to assault a deputy minister who is the MP for the constituency. Such act is definitely wrong and shouldn’t have occurred,” he said, calling on the Umno disciplinary committee to act.
