There it comes, MIC is being computerised, I mean blogs, web sites and even chat corners. It is a worthy move. Check the MIC web site and the latest news was the one on March 3. Not to worry irritating issues like this will be taken care of soon. I am excited, though I don’t particularly care for the internal workings of MIC, but at least for the sake of supporting the bloggers, MIC bloggers belong to the same fraternity, I am sure I would like to bring out questions on the Maika, Telecom shares, and how long will Samy be there in MIC before a new man takes over. I have seen the comments raised by readers when anything is brought about MIC and now comes the golden opportunity to get the answers from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.
Murugesan one of the committee members made some effort to support his leader, compliments of Malaysiakini and the letter writing column, and I know his arguments were torn to pieces by another writer in Malaysiakini. I did do a posting on this.
With RM400.000, each of the 160 divisions will have a computer the least, and I will look forward to the day when 160 MIC bloggers go on line, trumpeting the goodness of MIC.
A matter of interest, has the communication system with graduates manning the information centres been introduced.
More the merrier they say, and I as a blogger, welcome the 160 additional bloggers of MIC and hope to interact with them soon.
IPOH: MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has urged party leaders to set up their own weblogs (blogs) in an effort to re-brand the Barisan Nasional component party.
MIC would be using the Internet more widely to increase knowledge and understanding of the party’s struggles and initiatives, he said.
“We will use it to reach out to professionals and youths. Our leaders need to teach themselves to use the Internet and if possible, create their own blogs,” he told reporters before opening the Perak MIC convention here on Sunday.
Samy Vellu said that the majority of leaders at division and branch levels were still not Net-savvy, so the party would teach those who were willing to learn.
“Soon, we will launch our own portal which would allow the people to take part in discussions.
“We will also make it compulsory for each state committee to have its own website and to update them daily,” he added.
MIC would be spending RM400,000 to equip some 160 divisions with computers and other equipment.
