MIC removes Senator Sivaraajh from central working committee

Senator Datuk C. Sivaraajh was removed from the central working committee (CWC) of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) on Sunday. The former MIC vice-president was informed of his dismissal from the CWC through a letter dated June 10, which was signed by MIC president Tan Sri SA Vigneswaran. Although the letter did not provide a reason for Sivaraajh’s removal, it expressed gratitude for his service and contributions to the party.

Sivaraajh acknowledged that it is the president’s prerogative to appoint or remove individuals from the CWC as he deems fit. Despite this development, he remains committed to his duties within the party and the community. “I will continue my focus on three important agendas, namely education, entrepreneurship, and empowerment for the betterment of the Indian community. The rest I leave it to the party members to decide,” he said.

A source close to Sivaraajh revealed that they had only received the letter of removal via a WhatsApp message. The letter, obtained by Malay Mail, was addressed to Sivaraajh and carried the signature of the party president. The letter read, “I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to express my deepest appreciation for the valuable contributions you have rendered to the party during your tenure as a member of the Central Working Committee of the Congress which has hereby concluded on May 11, 2023. I take this opportunity to thank you for your cooperation and success in your future endeavours.”
