Find out community’s problems, MIC Youth told

KUALA LUMPUR: MIC Youth leaders must go to the ground to find out the community's problems if the party is to regain ground lost in the March general election.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department S.K. Devamany, in making the call, said many Youth leaders did not perform.
“If this culture continues, we will not be able to gain the trust of the Indian community. Only those who are committed should take up posts in the Youth wing. We don’t need seat warmers,” he said after a two-day brainstorming session for 50 MIC state youth leaders on Sunday.
Devamany, who is Cameron Highlands MP, also briefed the leaders on the current political situation in the country as well as the Government’s efforts to assist the community.
National MIC Youth coordinator T. Mohan admitted there were weaknesses in the wing.
“I admit there are some Youth leaders who have not performed in their states for more than six years but goals have been set for the new state leaders,” he said.
Mohan, who was appointed last month, said leaders who failed to perform effectively would be replaced in the Youth polls scheduled next May.
“I have given them guidelines to carry out in implementing the programmes in their states. If they adhere to them, there is no reason for them not to succeed,” he said.
Mohan, who also urged the leaders in the division and state to be vocal on issues affecting the community, promised to give RM1,000 monthly allocations to the states to carry out their activities.
He said leaders must not be satisfied in getting their activities highlighted in the Tamil newspapers but should also strive to get publicity in English and Malay newspapers as well as television stations.
The Youth leaders discussed ways to rebuild the image of the wing, effective community development and service as well as how to woo 50,000 youths into the party before the year-end.
