SHAH ALAM: MIC Youth deputy chief V Mugilan’s expulsion from the party has nothing to do with him allegedly sabotaging the party and Barisan Nasional (BN) during the Hulu Selangor by-election.
Rather, he said, he was sacked because he had asked party president Datuk Seri S Samu Velly to vacate his post latest by year-end.
Mugilan, who would make an appeal on Monday against the expulsion letter which he received about 11pm Thursday, told Bernama on Friday, May 21: “The only reason for my sacking, as stated in the letter, was for asking Samy Vellu to step down…it (the sacking) has nothing to do with the issue of (me) sabotaging the party and Barisan Nasional during the Hulu Selangor by-election.
“The letter stated that I was expelled from the party, with immediate effect, and that I may appeal within 14 days from the receipt of the expulsion letter, to the CWC (MIC central working committee, the party’s highest decision-making body).”
His demand in asking Samy Vellu to vacate his post with immediate effect or latest by December, came after the party president said he would resign “eight to nine months” before his presidential term ended in May 2012.
He believed that if Samy Vellu vacated the top post, BN could win back at least 80% of the Indian votes in the next general election.
Meanwhile, Mugilan, who is also Hulu Selangor MIC division youth chief, will hold a press conference at 11am Saturday, at the Lotus restaurant in Jalan Gasing, Petaling Jaya.
He said, a drastic action plan against Samy Vellu’s leadership would be announced at the conference. — Bernama
