Although there were messages floating around that the ousted President of MIC, Datuk Seri G Palanivel would attend the component party heads meeting with the Prime Minister, despite not being invited, Palanivel did not show up.
Some 20 odd supporters, whom were seen lingering around the Prime Minister’s office, were disappointed with the beleaguered leader’s no show.
Palanivel’s hardcore supporter, A.K. Ramalinggam however handed over a letter, stating the small group’s stand.
The Acting President, Datuk Seri Dr S.Subramaniam, was invited and attended the pary heads meeting. This came as another strong recognition by the mother party, Barisan Nasional on Dr.Subra’s stewardship of MIC.
