Subra: I didnít stab Samy Vellu in the back

KUALA LUMPUR: "I can stand it. I know what I am doing. I will continue."

MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam was a picture of strength as he brushed aside biting criticism from party chief Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu about his role in the party.

"I do not know anything about back-stabbing him. I did not do it. I did not do anything to take over the party or the president’s post," he said at a Press conference.
Subramaniam was responding to Samy Vellu’s allegations that he had been undermining the party chief and planning to take over the party.
He had no idea why he was being accused of such things "as I have not acted in any way detrimental to the party or any person in it".
"I am defending my deputy president’s post. If I had wanted to contest the president’s post, I would have done it. But this is not the case," he said.
Subramaniam underlined his stand that he would not fight Samy Vellu despite the party chief’s invitation to do so on Friday.
"It is not about me and Datuk Seri Samy Vellu. The question is who will be the deputy president? Datuk G. Palanivel, me or someone else? I have made an announcement to defend my position."
Samy Vellu had openly indicated that Palanivel, currently a vice- president, was his choice of candidate for the post.
Subramaniam said he did not want to bring Samy Vellu into the equation as the party chief’s position was safe.
Subramaniam said he wanted delegates at the annual general meeting to elect the deputy president even if Samy Vellu had announced his candidate for the post.
On whether Samy Vellu’s support would be an advantage to Palanivel, he said: "Somebody else has the benefit of coming into my position through the back-door.
"Who that someone is, I don’t know as no candidate has been announced. I know it is a clear attempt to seek the back-door into my position."
(Nominations for the deputy presidency, three vice-presidents and 25 central working committee seats will be made on June 4).
He said no one should question his loyalty to the MIC as he had been faithful to the party.
"The party and the Indian community are more important than my own interests."
Subramaniam also denied allegations by Samy Vellu on Friday that two Tamil dailies said to be close to the deputy president had quoted the party chief as saying that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had not done anything for the Indians during his tenure as Prime Minister. "There is no connection between me and what was reported."
