MIC Elections 2009: ‘Change and Rebuild’ is MIC veep hopeful’s tagline

Contributed by Anonymous on Thursday, August 27 @ 04:44:10 CDT

The Star,
PETALING JAYA: For­mer Selangor youth chief P. Subramaniam (pic) is campaigning with the tagline “Change and rebuild MIC”, in his bid to win a vice-president’s post in the Sept 12 party polls. “I have received encouraging response from delegates who are receptive to the idea of change. They feel it is time for young leaders to come into mainstream politics,” he said in an interview.

The 44-year-old Subramaniam, who is Kelana Jaya division vice-chairman, said the youth chiefs in Umno and MCA had already progressed to national politics and likewise, the time has come for MIC’s grassroot leaders to rise in the political hierachy. Subramanian will be up against six others for the post, three of them endorsed by MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu – secretary-general Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam, treasurer Datuk S.K. Devamany and information chief Datuk M. Saravanan. The others in the race are Johor MIC treasurer Datuk S. Balakrishnan, former Federal Territory chief Datuk V.K.K. Teagarajan and Jelebu division chief P. Mariayee. “I know it is an uphill task against the endorsed team but I still have the confidence that the 1,464 delegates will choose wisely,” Subramaniam said. The father of two, who has been busy meeting delegates from Penang, Perak, Johor and Selangor, said six out of 10 delegates he had met wanted a change in the party leadership. “My 26 years in the MIC has moulded me to face greater challenges in the party. “There have been ups and downs, and the experience will help me serve the community better as a vice-president, if I am elected,” he said. Subramaniam said one of the reasons which motivated him to contest was his desire to bridge the divisions in the Indian community. “There are more parties sprouting for Indians and this is creating further divisions in a minority community,” he said. Subramaniam said the MIC must have leaders who would be able to win their hearts and minds of young voters who are expected to be the key in the next general election. “I believe the Indians in the country still care for and love the MIC, and will return to the party if the leadership is transparent and accountable.
