PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam (pic) fears that crisis-hit MIC is descending into chaos when its leaders are not allowed to enter the party’s headquarters.
The MIC deputy president said stopping senior leaders from entering the party headquarters could only worsen the situation.
“I am sad over what happened to him (MIC vice-president Datuk M. Saravanan). This is not helping,” he said, referring to the crisis the party is facing after the Registrar of Societies (RoS) nullified elections for the party’s three vice-presidents and 23 central working committee posts held during its general assembly in November last year.
Dr Subramaniam, who is Health Minister, was asked about yesterday’s incident where Saravanan was stopped from entering the party headquarters in Kuala Lumpur by a group of about 15 men.
The minister politely declined questions on MIC, saying: “If I start talking (about MIC), I may not stop because I have a lot to say. I am sorry, my friends, not that I don’t want to talk to you, but I have a meeting with the Prime Minister.”
An aide said that Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had called all ministers for a meeting at the Perdana Putra building.
“I was told that the PM wanted to brief the ministers on some issues,” the aide said, adding that the meeting was not the weekly Cabinet one which was held earlier in the morning.
