Samy a liability to BN

Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad has once again lashed out at MIC president S Samy Vellu, describing him as a liability to the Barisan Nasional coalition.

S Samy Vellu

Mahathir said he was concerned that support for BN would decline in the coming elections because Samy Vellu continued to helm MIC.

The former premier said the 73-year-old MIC president should relinquish his post for his party's failure in the last elections, where Samy Vellu was also defeated in his parliamentary stronghold of Sungai Siput.

Mahathir said he also strove to get MIC candidates supported by the Malays. Without support from Umno members and the other Malays, MIC could not win. So that's is my service to MIC.

The questions arise: Should Samy Vellu resign voluntarily or otherwise? In other countries, when a leader fails, he resigns voluntarily. In Japan, he would commit harakiri (suicide), how about Malaysia?
