Kuala Lumpur, Sep. 4 (ANI): T. Ananthan, who is contesting as for a seat in Malaysian Indian Congress central working committee has declared that five delegates who vote for him in September 12 elections will get free air tickets to Chennai.
The former journalist is offering five return air tickets to Chennai in a lucky draw after the voting.
"I am giving this as an incentive to the delegates regardless of whether I win or lose," the Star Online quoted him, as saying.
Although it is unlikely that the team endorsed by party president S. Samy Vellu will be toppled, but independents still want to try their luck.
Dr Vasan Sinnadurai, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon, who received financial assistance from the MIC to further his studies in India, said he wants to repay the debt by serving the community.
R. Ananthan, MD of the Precision Engineering Company, said he was offering his services after having been involved in the MIC for 30 years.
"Division chairman Chandrasekhar Suppiah has stepped aside to allow me to contest. I am grateful to him," he said. (ANI)
