Loyalty won’t easily slip away from Veeran
KUALA LUMPUR: While others proudly wore the party badge on their shirts, one MIC member showed his loyalty by sporting a gold ring with the MIC logo engraved on it.
Perak Youth chief Veeran Muniandy drew a lot of attention at the general assembly with his custom-made ring, which he wears with another engraved with the 1Malaysia logo.
“I made the MIC ring about a week ago just for this year's assembly,” said Veeran, adding that he saved for a year to buy the RM4,800 ring.
He decided to get the ring as the party had transformed his life.
“I love the party and I have full faith in the efforts and the struggles of the party.
“I have seen how MIC helps people and has changed the lives of many, especially the poor,” said Veeran who has been a member for the past 14 years.
Asked why he used gold to show his affection for the party, he said it had always brought him luck.
As for the RM4,000 1Malaysia ring, Veeran said he was a firm believer in the concept.
