Nesa delegates elect two new directors

 | June 30, 2012

Businessman “Oms” Thiagarajan and Makkal Osai GM M Periasamy have been elected to the board while MIC member SVS Vellu and K Kandasamy retain their posts.

PETALING JAYA: Businessman “Oms” Thiagarajan and Makkal Osai general manager M Periasamy were elected into the Nesa Cooperative’s board of directors today.

Six people contested for the four elected directorship posts in one of the largest Indian cooperatives in Malaysia. Another three directors are appointed at the discretion of the Nesa president.

“MIC member SVS Vellu and K Kandasamy also retained their posts as directors of Nesa. Vellu won the highest votes among the delegates,” said Nesa’s lawyer K Saraswathy.

She also said that 233 out of 249 delegates turned up to cast their votes.

Nesa, the brainchild of former MIC president, the late V Manickavasagam, has about 40,000 members.

The cooperative is headed by former MIC deputy president S Subramaniam and the vice president is a PKR member, V Nadarajan.

Saraswathy said the delegates also rejected two motions brought in by the directors, namely the proposal to extend the term for the appointed directors’ post and empowering delegates to choose the appointed directors in the absence of the president.

“The delegates were in a sombre mood due to Subramaniam’s absence,” she said, referring to the former MIC leader who suffered a brain haemorrhage last year.
