KUALA LUMPUR: MIC disciplinary committee chairman Tan Sri Dr K.S. Nijhar says the group which protested the sacking of a Kedah MIC Youth council member had raised some valid arguments. He said he had advised the group to raise their grievances through their representatives in the party central working committee.
The group had protested in front of Nijhar’s residence on Saturday on what they claimed was the arbitrary sacking of K. Somasundaram for just criticising MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel.
Nijhar said issues connected to Kampung Buah Pala, Bukit Jalil Estate and the Jalan Raja Chulan temple should be brought to the CWC and not the disciplinary committee.
He said the group was also protesting against MIC information head L. Sivasubramaniam and CWC member A.K. Ramalingam, claiming the two had made statements that were damaging to the party.
“I explained that under the party constitution, the disciplinary committee can act against people who make press statements that are against the interests of the party. But it cannot act against CWC members.
“So, the issue of these two persons making comments, it is something that the Youth leaders must also raise in the CWC which can act against them,” he said.
