President’s critic gets show-cause letter

 | May 19, 2011

Bagan MIC chief Henry Benedict Aasirvatham is slapped with a show-cause letter for accusing G Palanivel of plotting his deputy's downfall.

PETALING JAYA: MIC leader Henry Benedict Aasirvatham has been slapped with a show-cause letter for making allegations against party president G Palanivel.

“MIC has not learnt its lessons. It is repeating the same mistakes. What I said is the truth and nothing but the truth,” the Bagan MIC chief told FMT.

Aasirvatham was, however, unfazed about the letter or the possibility of being sacked. “In the name of unity, Palanivel will take me back and reinstate my position,” he said, sarcastically.

Contacted later, a source from the MIC headquarters claimed that the show-cause letter was issued because of Aasirvatham’s remarks to FMT early this month.

In that FMT report, he said that Palanivel was bringing back sacked members under the guise of unity but the latter’s real motive was to finish off his deputy S Subramaniam.

“Palanivel knows he is not safe with Subramaniam running around,” he was quoted as saying.

Aasirvatham, who received the show-cause letter yesterday, had 14 days to furnish a reply to the party disciplinary committee.
