SEGAMAT, April 16 (Bernama) --MIC has a good chance of retaining the Segamat parliamentary seat in the 14th General Election (GE14) with a big majority following the strong support for the party from the Indian community in five zones, namely Jementah, Gemas Baharu, Buloh Kasap, Batu Anam and Segamat.
MIC president, Datuk Seri Dr. S. Subramaniam said he had received a positive report from each of the five zones that were formerly grey areas and now have become white areas.
"From the reports I have received from each zone, the support given by the Indian community to MIC and Barisan Nasional (BN) has increased to 70 to 80 per cent.
"With this figure, I am confident that we will have no problem retaining Segamat ," he told Bernama after launching the MIC machinery for the Segamat parliamentary constituency at Dewan Taman Desa India, Batu Anam, tonight.
The incumbent Segamat MP said the increased support proves that the people in the region believed in the leadership of the BN government.....
