PETALING JAYA: MIC is confident that more than 50% of Indian voters would return to the party since the community had lost faith in Pakatan Harapan (PH) after the coalition’s 22-month rule, New Sunday Times reports.

MIC vice-president Datuk T. Mohan said MIC was also more united now under Tan Sri S.A. Vigneswaran’s leadership, with no infighting among its top leaders.

“PH was a huge letdown for the Indian community because it helmed the government with an opposition mentality.

“It failed to deliver on its promises to abolish tolls and waive National Higher Education Fund Corp loans.

“Despite having four Indian ministers in the PH administration, none of them championed the Indian community’s cause because they wanted to present themselves as ‘multiracial’ leaders,“ he reportedly said.

In GE14, MIC fielded candidates in nine parliamentary and 18 state seats.

It won only two parliamentary seats. The party also lost the Cameron Highlands seat after the Election Court nullified former MIC vice-president Datuk C. Sivarraajh’s victory in the constituency.
