Clan affair at MIC Youth, Puteri polls

Contributed by Anonymous on Sunday, August 09 @ 11:05:53 CDT

2009/08/09 Suganthi Suparmaniam KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC Youth and Puteri elections look like a family affair, with the president's nephew running for Youth chief and his daughter-in-law winning uncontested as Puteri deputy head. S.P. Muthu Veloo (right) shaking hands with T. Mohan after filing their nomination papers to contest the MIC Youth chief’s post at the party headquarters in Kuala Lumpur yesterday. When nominations closed yesterday, MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, the returning officer, announced that in*****bent Puteri head Senator J. Usha Nandhini and V. Shaila Nair had won the post of Puteri chief and deputy chief uncontested.

Shaila, a popular singer, is married to Samy Vellu's son S. Vell Paari.

Samy Vellu's elder brother's son S.P. Muthu Veloo, a lawyer, will be contesting against Youth coordinator, businessman T. Mohan, who is said to be from the same clan as the MIC chief.

Muthu Veloo, when asked, said the question of whether being Samy Vellu's nephew was a liability or asset did not arise.
"I was born into the family and he is my uncle.
"I can't alter that. But, I am not using this in my campaign. And, you don't ask if your father is an asset or a liability," he said.

Samy Vellu, on the other hand, said he would not interfere in the Youth contest and would not endorse anyone.

"I only advise the senior level. The upcoming ones will have to fight on their own," he said.

However, Vell Paari has endorsed Mohan as his choice for Youth chief and came to show support when Mohan filed his nomination papers at the MIC headquarters yesterday.

The post of Youth deputy chief is being contested by Kahang state assemblyman R. Vidyananthan and MIC Youth political bureau head V. Mugilan, who, it is said, is being groomed by deputy president Datuk G. Palanivel.

The post of Wanita chief will see a straight fight between in*****bent Datin Paduka P. Komala Devi and her deputy S. Thangasvari, after former journalist G. Rajeswary decided not to contest, at the last minute, in support of Thangasvari.

The post of deputy Wanita chief will also see a one-to-one fight between Wanita national council member Dr C.V. Prema and Negri Sembilan Wanita chief Dr P. Thanaletchumi.

A total of 541 MIC Youth and 572 Wanita delegates will be voting for their leaders in the Aug 16 election.

Both wings will also elect two representatives to be in the central working committee, 12 national council members, and 35 delegates for the party's general assembly, set for Sept 12.

Samy Vellu said there had been no complaints of money politics.

"Up to now, there are no complaints. If there are, we will take action," he said.
