malaysiakini reported Nallakaruppan, once a buddy of de factor leader, saying that his once-good pal had not been forthright with him on several matters. Nalla was just being polite in his choice of words.
He lamented: “I have been a friend of Anwar for more than 30 years but he had not been honest with me, especially on matters relating to the Ijok by-election and the contest for the party’s vice presidency.”
Well, Nalla, that's better - Anwar has not been honest with you. So stop pussyfooting around with words like 'not being forthright etc'.
Thank goodness you have woken up. Anwar Ibrahim has been, is and will be about Anwar Ibrahim. Consider, this is a man who would shamelessly preach to the world about democracy and at the same time meddle with the party polling, as he had been alleged to do, not once but twice, by two different people in the PKR.
Then, he couldn't care two hoots about his own wife's de jure status or about democratic elections, even in the party that was formed to fight for his release from prison.
Mind you, there are others in PKR still mesmerized.
But since Nalla left in hurt anger, more than 300 Indian PKR members nationwide are believed to have officially quit the party in support of him. There’s more on the way out with some already gone without even bothering to submit a resignation letter.
The latest to join the exodus are some 200 members from Gombak in Selangor.
Nalla told malaysiakini: “I know they are eager to know what my next plans are but I hope they would give me a little bit of extra time for me to think this thoroughly. Whatever decision I make, it will be for the good of the Indian community. It will be a decision which my supporters would support. Just bear with me and I will soon be making an important decision.”
But he refused to comment if he was in talks with any political parties regarding his political future.
The DAP could do with his group as members but I wonder whether that would present a problem for the incongruous alliance between DAP and PKR?.
What I like to see is Dr Syed Husin also taking his PRM people out to join the DAP or the PSM. PKR can then revert back to being KeADILan, a loser-clone of UMNO, but a splinter group of UMNO nonetheless.
