PETALING JAYA: Another MIC leader has quit, just three days after former MIC vice-president C Sivaraj left the Indian-based party.
Selangor MIC Youth chief P Punithan handed in his resignation letter to party president SA Vigneswaran today.
In his letter, he thanked the top leadership for giving him the chance to serve in various positions in MIC for the last 15 years.
Punithan was also the party’s Batang Berjuntai youth chief.
When contacted, Punithan cited “personal reasons” for quitting MIC.
“Resigning from MIC is not an end to my political career,” he told FMT.
Sivaraj had earlier this week quit MIC saying he wanted to continue serving the Indian community as a senator and a leader without any hindrance, “especially from the MIC leadership”.
Sivaraj said several “incidents” had occurred under Vigneswaran’s leadership that forced him to relinquish his membership.
