Kuala Lumpur, Aug 18: Malaysian Indian Congress party president Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu claimed that due to certain party members money was getting mixed with politics.
Vellu said this before announcing the results of the MIC Youth and Wanita polls on Sunday, where 500 delegates were present.
"We will clean this up. We will chop them off (remove from the party) whoever they are," The New Straits Times quoted Vellu, as saying.
Though Vellu didn't mention any name in particular, he said that party has identified the culprits and would take action against them.
He also informed that the procedure being adopted was to approach delegates at the division level and persuade them to vote for a particular candidate in return for huge sums of money.
"They are willing to spend thousands of ringgit for each and every vote," said Vellu.
