KUALA LUMPUR: MIC wants a commitment from Universiti Malaya that an Indian will head its Indian Studies Department following an uproar over the varsity’s decision to appoint a non-Indian.
MIC President Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the party wanted an assurance from the university that it would not make the same mistake in the future.
He had expressed shock and dismay over the university’s decision to replace Dr. S. Kumaran with a non-Indian.
Samy Vellu said he was pleased that University Malaya Vice-Chancellor Datuk Ghauth Jasmon had assured Human Resources Minister and MIC secretary-general Datuk Dr. S. Subramaniam on Monday that the matter would be resolved amicably.
