FORMER MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam has told party members to place the party's interest before theirs, Malaysia Nanban reported.
The daily quoted him as saying during an interview with Bernama TV on Saturday that the party was more important than the needs of any individual.
He said this when asked to comment on the resignation of MIC Youth leader S.A. Vigneswaran and several others from the movement.
Subramaniam, who is Seputeh MIC division chief, said that a leader should be with the party through thick and thin.
He said the decision by the MIC central working committee that Youth leaders who had passed the age limit of 40 should relinquish their posts was to encourage more young professionals to join the party.
