KUALA LUMPUR - MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel intends to meet Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Friday to urge him not to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Sri Lanka, which will take place from Nov 15 to Nov 17.

Critics of Sri Lanka have alleged that its government was responsible for the deaths of up to 40,000 civilians in the civil war in 2009.

An AFP report said that the prime ministers of Canada and India would not be attending the summit.
