KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC will investigate its Youth deputy chief V. Mugilan for allegedy working against the interest of the party in the upcoming Hulu Selangor by-election, party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said.

Mugilan, who is also the Hulu Selangor Youth chief, has received the backing of Hulu Selangor Umno to be one of the main contenders for the seat.

However, the MIC has nominated deputy president Datuk G. Palanivel as their choice of candidate while MIC information chief P. Kamalanathan is also in the running.

Speaking to reporters last night after a two-hour emergency meeting of the party’s central working committee, he said disciplinary action would be taken against any member who worked to destroy the party.

“We have decided to check further on the actions taken by Mugilan in allegedly trying to steal the seat from the party,” he said.

The meeting which started at 10pm was attended by all 37 members.

To a question, Samy Vellu said the decision on Mugilan would be taken after his meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin this morning.

Earlier, a majority of the 22 MIC divisions in Selangor have urged Barisan Nasional to field an MIC-endorsed candidate. Puchong MIC chairman A. Saktivel said many of the divisions had confidence in Palanivel.
