SHAH ALAM - MIC's Senator Datuk C Sivaraj has quit MIC with immediate effect, citing difference with party leadership while promising to serve the Indian community without any hindrance or restrictions.

In a statement addressed to MIC party President Tan Sri SA Vigneswaran

President, he said since joining MIC almost 20 years ago, he has dedicated himself towards the enrichment of the party and demonstrated a high level of commitment to the party's cause.

"Throughout these 20 years, I have offered my services to the party and the community to the best of my abilities," he said.

Sivaraj has served as the National Secretary of MIC Youth Movement, National Youth Chief of MIC, Deputy President, Cameron Highlands MP and a senate.

"Unfortunately, certain events that occurred during my tenure under Tan Sri's leadership have led me to make this rather disheartening decision," he added.

He will also quit as Taman Bukit Kuchai Baru branch chief.

"Although this decision saddens me, I have to accept this choice because I believe it is better for me to leave MIC.

"I want to fulfill my responsibilities and duties as a Member of the Senate and as a leader of the Indian community without any hindrance or restrictions from any party, especially from the leadership of MIC," he said.

"Personally, I believe that this decision is the best for me and, more importantly, for the party at this time, as I am seen as a threat to the existing leadership within the party.

"What's even worse, I have been hindered in various ways from continuing my service to the community and the nation," he added.

He said if the situation continues, it could lead to the division among party members in the future.

"Honestly, I do not want to be the cause of further split within the party due to differences in views and approaches," said Sivaraj.
