Muthupalaniappan Not Relevant For MIC President!


“Party members are already calling me the Obama of MIC, the force to oust Samy and bring a major leadership change in the MIC,” Datuk M. Muthupalaniappan said.

Do you think so? Obama is a young and fresh President of USA. Even before he elected as President, his idea of changing America into more liberal and to create a condusive economic environments for the world was more clear. He was not promised with the simple words, but explained American how he can bring the changes. How about Muthupalaniappan? He used the simple words and said he could bring the changes. He should have a complete manifesto for his campaign to oust the Samy Vellu. I think that he could be the same like Samy Vellu after been elected as President. Even his age is not suitable for the post compare to Obama. Barack Obama is 47 years old and he talks the language of Facebook, Twitter and Blackberry. Muthu is 68, how he can connect with current generation?

Veteran Muthupalaniappan was first elected to the MIC central working committee in 1979. The same year, he was appointed Negri Sembilan MIC chief and party Youth head. He was made senator in 1980 and two years later, won the Si Rusa state assembly seat and was appointed to the Negrri Sembilan state executive council. He was elected vice-president in 1997 but failed to retain the post in the party’s 2000 and 2006 elections. Now he throw challenge on Dato Seri S Samy Vellu in next year’s MIC presidential election.

He said he received a lot of support from grassroots. The 68-year-old Seremban-based Muthupalaniappan, who is a lawyer by profession, is not relevant for our generation. In my opinion, the younger generation should challenge Samy Vellu. The young faces in MIC such as S K Devamany, Saravanan and Sothinathan. should come forward for the interest of Malaysian Indian and MIC's reformation. Samy and his old friend Muthu are not relevant for Malaysian Indian's new vision and mission.

The largest Indian party in the country would hold its presidential election in March, while the election of deputy president, three vice-president and 23 central working committee (CWC) seats would be held in September. Muthu cited “overwhelming” calls by senior party leaders and members as the reason for his decision. But I don't think an old leader replaced by an another old leader is not a good idea. It's not a good sign to restructure and recover believes on MIC.

Since MIC is facing crucial moments currently, Samy Vellu supposes to leave the post to capable and younger boss. At least the new boss has the new thoughts for Malaysian Indians. Since Malaysian Indian lost confident on Samy Vellu, any of his challenger is threat to him and able to shake his position. Hope his challenger will be a fresh and young youth; this is the right time ever to oppose him.

No use if MIC leaders claiming that they are the champion and sole Malaysian Indian representative in parliament if without any effort to change its leadership into more competent. 68 years old Muthupalaniapan is too old for the post and even he is not suitable for current and future generation. May be some people say that he is slightly better than Samy Vellu, however he is not ideal for 2008. We Malaysian Indian are not only hoping for leadership change, but also economic, education, socio politics, language and other sectors.

Dato M Muthupalaniappan must forget his dream to fight for the MIC president post, even if the grassroots forced him, he should proposed other talented young leaders who with more new and updated plans for Malaysian Indian.

true...true....stupid people...stupid delegates...vote same people for 30 years...can nt imagine that...
ask MIC delegates to resign if they think they can not initiate any change...
when think back...i think they deserve to have samy vellu as thier head..
nevertheless , lets examine samy vellu...must give him some credit tht he manage to stay in the seat for 30 years...

u knowlah...the delegates not easy to control...typical indian..every indian wanna be leader of political party...no body wanna be follower...they keep climbing on each other...untill no one can stand tall and lead the rest....

every indian ....got something to say..even the most logic and straight foward concept also they can twist and turn...

with new president...who does nt look that healthy and no charism...wanna be president....if i am the delegate...i rather vote for samy vellu.. some how or rather..samy seems more intelligent then this new nominee...

one problem...samy overstayed...

vicious cirle back to square one

the most wise thing to do...juz stand and watch...see what happen ....cooly we stand and see they fight among themselves...
maybe new generation will learn frm this.....
