KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC has hired two information technology (IT) specialists to rebut allegations against the party on the Internet.
“We would make sure that the allegations are replied to within 24 hours,” president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said here at the 62nd Selangor MIC delegates conference here on Saturday.
The IT experts would also attend to the complaints through the party's call centre. The centre, currently under renovation at its headquarters, is expected to be operational next month.
“They would also refer the problems to the respective MIC leaders who would raise them with the relevant government agencies if required,” he said.
Meanwhile, in Malacca on Friday, Samy said a privilege card would be issued to the MIC's 630,000 members as part of the party’s re-branding exercise.
The card, called Dhana (meaning wealth in Sanskrit), would allow members to enjoy at least 20 benefits and privileges including special healthcare programmes, mobile phone offers and discounts to buy motorcycles and cars.
Speaking at the opening of the Malacca MIC delegates conference here on Friday, Samy Vellu said it would be the first political party to offer such a card.
