MIC deputy president M Saravanan has urged de facto Islamic Affairs Minister Mujahid Yusof Rawa to exclude Jalan Tun Sambanthan in Brickfields from his proposal to rename a road there as Jalan Harmoni.

"MIC had put a lot effort to have the road named Jalan Tun Sambanthan and now they (the Pakatan Harapan government) want to change it to other name.

"So if the minister wants to change the name of a road in the area, please don't involve Jalan Tun Sambanthan."

Jalan Tun Sambanthan was known as Jalan Brickfields before its name was changed in 1982, after the late VT Sambanthan who was the fifth MIC president, and played a prominent role in our nation's formative years.
