MIC to hold Deepavali open house at Batu Caves

KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC will, for the first time, hold its Deepavali open house at the Batu Caves Temple.

Its president Datuk G. Palanivel said the open house, which would on Deepavali day itself (Oct 26), would be held at an open area around the temple.

He said by having it there, the party expected to attract more than 10,000 people, not only from the Indian community but also the Chinese and Malay communities as well.

"When we hold the event at the Putra World Trade Centre, the turn out is not very good, normally we will get less than 5,000 people," he told reporters at MIC's headquarters here Thursday.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin are scheduled to attend the open house. - Bernama
