The Blame Game Begins

Excerpts of the interview - YB Hee Yit Foong (ADUN Jelapang) with My Sinchew:

DAP didn't want me

Yit Foong said during an exclusive interview with Sin Chew Daily on Saturday that certain people in the party had tried to reject and sideline her.

For example, state chairman Ngeh Koo Ham had said in a meeting last year that she would not be given the opportunity in the next election.

She said Lim Kit Siang knew about this thing but pretended not know anything. Some state assemblymen even keep a distance from me as if I were a leper.

She said when she tried to find out something from other state assemblymen, they just said they knew nothing, especially the executive councillors.

She said someone purposely replaced the city councillors in her constituency (Jelapang). She had asked to meet the menteri besar personally because of this matter, adding that there was black and white to prove this.

Karpal asks Anwar to step down

Pakatan Rakyat de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim should step down for causing trouble in the coalition, DAP national chairman Karpal Singh said.

He said Pakatan Rakyat needed another leader, a good leader, and lashed out at PKR and DAP leaders who had fallen sway to Anwar’s rhetoric in supporting crossovers of elected representatives.

“I am not getting the support from my own party leaders, neither party adviser Lim Kit Siang nor secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, on the party-hopping issue.

“In the public interest, and in particular in the interest of Pakatan Rakyat, Anwar has a lot to answer for in creating the woes of the coalition now,’’ he added.
