MIC Puchong Division Chairman Expelled for Aggressive Behavior and Criticizing Leadership

Awtar Singh, the chairman of the MIC Puchong division, has been expelled from the party due to his aggressive behavior and criticism of the party leadership, government, and coalition partners. The decision to sack Awtar was announced by MIC General Secretary Datuk R.T. Rajasekaran on April 21, 2024.

According to Rajasekaran, Awtar's expulsion was not related to the party's presidential institution or the claim that the party president cannot be criticized. He stated that Awtar had been repeatedly warned and given opportunities to express his views rationally, but he had exceeded the party's boundary of tolerance by denouncing various leaders, including the Selangor Menteri Besar, ministers in the unity government, and Barisan Nasional component party leaders.

Why this matters: The expulsion of a prominent party member highlights the internal conflicts and challenges faced by political parties in maintaining unity and discipline. It also underscores the importance of adhering to party guidelines and expressing dissent through appropriate channels.

Awtar has been given 14 days to appeal against his sacking, but he has stated that he will not be appealing, as he believes it would be a "waste of time" and that he can predict the outcome. The expulsion of Awtar Singh from the MIC serves as a reminder of the consequences of aggressive behavior and public criticism of party leadership and coalition partners.
