MIC To Discuss Cabinet

KUALA LUMPUR, April 13 (Bernama) — The reported dissatisfaction over MIC appointees in the Cabinet would be discussed at the party’s Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting on Thursday, said MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

He also denied that the party had sought a senatorship for him to be appointed to the Cabinet as alleged by a news portal, saying it was “not my style”.

“We will listen to the views of all the leaders before a decision is made. I will also seek an appointment with the prime minister,” he said in a statement here today.

Samy Vellu was commenting on news reports quoting an unnamed source that the MIC was studying a proposal to withdraw its lone minister and two deputy ministers from the Cabinet, in protest over the lack of importance accorded to the Indian community.

The report also said the MIC had requested for a senior portfolio, namely the post of works minister, but it was rejected
