The Indian Progressive Front (IPF) is disappointed the party has still not been initiated as a full partner of Barisan Nasional, Makkal Osai reported.

Kedah IPF chairman and national IPF vice-president K.Velayutham said the party had been supporting Barisan and working for the Indian community for the past 28 years.

Speaking at the Kulim Bandar Baru IPF annual general meeting, he noted the party had not received the recognition it deserved despite its service to the Indian community and commitment to Barisan.

IPF will continue with its commitment but must make sure it is treated fairly in the next general election, he said.

The meeting took part at Wisma MCA in Kulim, Kedah, on Sunday and was attended by Kulim MCA chairman Chua Thiong Gee and Kulim Umno chairman Datuk Muhar Hussain.
