PETALING JAYA: MIC is the real “sakti (power)” for the Indian community and has been working hard on the ground, said its deputy president Datuk G. Palanivel.
“The party members have been actively working for Barisan Nasional in the Bagan Pinang by-election. I am sure Umno will know who the real workers are,” he said in his blog www.gpalanivel.com.
Commenting on the launch of the Malaysia Makkal Sakti Party, he said the MIC “was not a new baby” like Makkal Sakti but a “63-year-old party born in a temple in Jalan Ipoh”.
“The MIC was created out of an intense fire and it was born out of nationalism and a party which is a signatory to the Merdeka Agreement,” he said.
Palanivel said Indians have an emotional link with MIC, and pointed to the country’s first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman words: “Even if there was only one Indian in the MIC, I would only talk to the MIC”.
“Unfortunately we no longer live in the era of leaders like Tunku,” he said.
