Kuala Lumpur, Sep. 29 (ANI): Malaysian Indian Congress youth wing chief T. Mohan has said that the party would not allow another Indian party to be admitted into the Barisan Nasional.
"We won't allow parties that mushroom today to usurp our role in the coalition. We have been bringing in the Indian support for Barisan all this while," The Star Online quoted him, as saying.
After chairing an emergency meeting of the national MIC Youth Council here, he said that the MIC was not the only party in Barisan that suffered defeats in the last general election.
On the Makkal Sakthi party, he said Barisan leaders should really find out whether its members supported Barisan or not.
"As far as we know, the majority of them are supporters of the Opposition and this will not benefit Barisan," he said.
However, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak had the right to officially launch Makkal Sakthi because Malaysia was a democratic country, he added.
Mohan said Makkal Sakthi was a rallying call used by the banned Hindraf movement leaders in 2007.
He said Makkal Sakthi president R.S. Thanendran had collected several thousand ringgit to help the families of the five detained Hindraf leaders.
"We want him to show proof that the money was distributed to the five families or account for the monies collected from the public," Mohan said. (ANI)
