Samy Vellu Wants To 'Spring Clean' The MIC

The MIC will be further reorganised to make the 62-year-old party more effective and efficient in meeting the needs and demands of the Indian community, said its president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu. He said the MIC would undertake "a lot of cleaning exercise" to make it more relevant to the Indians.

He added that the party would change its course to move more effectively to resolve the problems facing the community.
"While acknowledging that past methods adopted by the MIC have been successful in resolving the community's woes, a more concerted effort is needed to resolve some of the more difficult and sensitive problems," he said without elaborating.

"We will manage the party in a different style with a higher efficiency towards serving the ordinary people," he said. Recently, Samy Vellu said he would introduce new faces to contest the upcoming general election. "The people's expectations have changed and we also need to make changes to remain relevant," he said, adding that the MIC had always been reorganising itself to meet the expectations of the Indian community. "We will work in a manner that will benefit the community," he said.

He said MIC understood the mode of being efficient by "doing the right things", and at the same time striving to "do things right".
"We will continue to safeguard the interests and rights of the Indian community in the right manner and right way," he said.

He said education would continue to be the main thrust of the party this year with the official opening of the RM580 million Asian Institute of Medicine, Science and Technology, a university owned by the MIC.
"The creation of more Indian graduates will be our main objective in 2008," he said, adding that the party's educational arm, the Maju Institute of Educational Development, supports 1,200 medical students overseas annually.

***** Frankly I'm fed up with this same old story being repeated ad nauseam by semi value and indeed I've given up on MIC making amends in the near future. As long as Sam is still pulling the strings in the MIC it will neither improve nor be respected by the Indians as well as the others.

That it took the 'aftershocks' of the Hindraf rally for these opportunists in MIC to realize the "
need to make changes to remain relevant," speaks volumes about their real intention which is to continue staying in office.

Interesting news: Samy Vellu admits our government has no proof that Hindraf has terrorist links.

I mean yeah, why only do it when the elections are here.

Also, while he is busy cleaning up MIC, I wonder how much time he will have to perform his duties as Works Minister.

Yes, "spring clean" the MIC by all means but start with getting rid of Semi Value & his VP.
Then let the HINDRAF Leadership take over!

Start the cleaning by removing Semi Value from the party. This should be spring cleaning enough!

Samy has to go if MIC is to be effective.

Actually he holds the key to Indians' problem. He has to go and change the constitution of MIC - President should be only for max 10 years.. not president till one dies and the moronic son to take over...
