MIC Initiates ‘People First Program’ Nationwide

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 28 (Bernama) — The MIC will launch the “People First Program” at all its 3,600 branches as part of efforts to re-empower the branches, party president Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu said Thursday.

He said that branches, being the “first line of defence” of the MIC, must be re-energised to meet the expectations of the people.

“They are the ones who will be sought after by the ordinary people on a daily basis, and if they (branch leaders) are not effective, the MIC will be blamed for failing the people,” he told reporters after chairing the CWC meeting at the party headquarters here.

He said the MIC headquarters would make available a “year-planner” to the branches, detailing what needed to be done and the activities that must be implemented throughout the year.

“All MIC Central Working Committee (CWC) members will be tasked with monitoring the activities that are to be carried out by the branches under their supervision and submit their report to the MIC headquarters,” he said.

He said branches which failed to implement the programmes would be asked to explain and take the necessary action to carry them out according to the schedule.

Samy Vellu also said that the MIC divisions would also be holding gatherings with branch chairmen and supporters, including non-governmental organisations, to brief them on the latest government policies and initiatives.

He said he had started a nationwide tour to meet party members aimed at reassuring them that the MIC and the government were addressing their problems.
