Petaling Jaya, Aug. 29 (ANI): The Malaysian Indian Congress will have to regain Malay-Indian community's confidence and work hard to prove that it is still relevant to the country, party chief president S Samy Vellu has said.
"There might even come a time when many won't even realise that there is a party representing the Indians in the Barisan Nasional," The Star quoted him, as saying.
Noting that a party could now be registered within a couple of days, Samy Vellu said it was difficult to register a political party in past.
"We must all realise that the party will be facing bigger problems and if we don't work and are not aggressive, we might even be forgotten.
"We have to make sure that other people don't bully us. We have to show that the MIC is a 64-year-old party, with vast experience and capable of standing on its own," he said.
The MIC chief added that he had chosen delegates very carefully, and only those are endorsed who are really working for the community and the party. (ANI)
