Malayandi retains his position

Saturday, 10 March, 2007

Somehow, Malayandi retained his chief editor position in Samy’s Tamil Nesan contrary our earlier report that he has been dropped in favor of Agni, the new comer from defunct Tamil Kural. Vell Parri, samy’s good son, may not be in the mood to rock the boat at least for now and concentrating more on attracting Pandithan followers.

Who control Tamil Kural ?

After 3 days of absence, Tamil Kural is back in business. The management faction aligned to MIC top politician started their operation from another location. Bye… bye.. to Indrabhai. With this, Palanivel can count on two Tamil newspapers to back in him in his quest for MIC deputy leadership. Malaysia Nanban which is playing a sort of neutral role, currently,  will be the next target. 01/05/06

Tamil Kural in trouble

Tamil Kural, one of the four Tamil newspapers in the country that barely started a few months ago, failed to hit the street today owing to management dispute. Sources say the papers editor, Agni, and shareholder Indrabhai, wife of the late Athikumanan , are at odd with MIC news coverage that led the former to take a court order to stop the printing. The same source says, MIC top politician using a proxy is the majority share holder and the publishing license belongs to Tamilmani, who is also aligned to the same politician. 28/04/06

Nanban in trouble again? Malaysia's third Tamil daily, Tamil Kural, is set to hit the street on 28/11/05. After the death of Athikumanan, Malaysia Nanban's ownership dispute ensued between Subramaniam. S, MIC deputy president, and Athi's wife Indrabhai. The publications license holder Sikandar Batcha aligned hiself with Subra. A group of 10 management staffs left along with Sikandar to publish the paper.
