MIC deputy president Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam(wear glasses) has denied making any decision to challenge the top post in the coming party election.
He said Bernama's speculating article last Monday was only the views of the writer without any authentication.
"The writer of the article should have consulted and got my views before writing an article with far-reaching implications.
"It is very unfair to drag (former MIC president) Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu into this because many of us in MIC still look up to him as a senior leader who was responsible in providing us with political space to grow," said Dr Subramaniam in a statement to Bernama here today.
An article entitled 'Dr Subra Set To Challenge Palani For MIC Top Post' stated that the incumbent party chief, Datuk Seri G. Palanivel was expected to face a tough challenge in the defence of his position at the party's presidential polls.
