Big-headed pompous hubristic Uthayakumar has demanded that Pakatan gives way to his HRP in 15 parliamentary and 38 state seats in the coming general election.
If he had only demanded seats held by PKR or his bête noire DAP (and those currently occupied by BN), one could even argue on his behalf that his threat has been directed at parties which he dislikes and accuses, debatable as this may be, of not doing enough for Indians.
Associated with his regular attacks on particularly the DAP, he in bully boy petulance has regularly described Indian members in DAP as ‘mandores’, demonstrating his bad manners and uncouth behavior.
But when he included the Sungei Siput parliamentary seat as part of his outrageous threat to Pakatan, he suddenly revealed his true agenda, something that’s not pretty to look at.
The Sungei Siput parliamentary seat is currently held by Dr D Jeyakumar of the PSM – note please, not of the DAP nor of PKR but PSM, a sovereign party beholden to no one but the rakyat of its constituencies.
For years Dr Jeya had invested blood, toil, tears and sweat in Sungei Siput for the betterment of the downtrodden Indians, in a constituency held for eons by Samy Vellu. The former MIC president was virtually the maharaja (with lower case ‘m’) of that parliamentary constituency, and like maharajas, cared not for the peasants.
Despite being on the outer for years, Dr Jeya plodded on, not for self aggrandizing nor promotion of his personal political ambition. Dr Jeya has been a true socialist, striving for years for the poor, downtrodden and marginalized.
Down came a rotten stinking wannabe parachutist who wasn’t seen in Sungei Siput when Dr Jeya was putting in the hard yards, and who now wants Dr Jeya to give up his seat for his HRP.
Now, the words to spring to mind at such a demand would be ‘outrageous’, ‘impertinent’, ‘f* extortion’ and ‘highway robbery’.
So why has the big-headed pompous, hubristic and now biadap Uthayakumar demanded Dr Jeya’s seat?
We must ask, in a 3-corner fight in Sungei Siput who would benefit?
Is this what Uthayakumar want? I’m afraid the ugly answer seems to be a disappointing ‘yes’.
I would not be surprised if Samy Vellu were to tell Palanivel “Dei tambi, I’ll be contesting in my old seat. This time I have plans to wrest the seat from that socialist.”
Then a worried Palanivel would riposte “But aneh, you’re now an ambassador. Why want to contest in an election?”
SV “Dei, that ambassador in Washington, he’s also an MP what. Don’t worry lah, you’re still the party president. I only want to regain my maruah and toupee which I lost in Sungei Siput on 08 March 2008. And I’m confident with a 3-corner flight" - nudge nudge wink wink!
Palanivel thinks silently [Well, I’m not so confident, and I’m not talking about winning the SS seat. Pundih]
Yes, Uthayakumar's demand for the seat of Sungei Siput is very telling of his 'agenda'. By splitting the votes in Sungei Siput, he will become the 'mandore' that he accuses others of being.
It is now encumbent on Pakatan supporters to provide 100% support for Dr Jeyakumar, to enable him to fend off the MIC and HRP plans to de-seat him.
