It’s by election time again! Well it is a tri-election this time – Bukit Selambau, Bukit Gantang and Batang Ai. 2 Bukit and 1 Batang. Doesn’t sound right. We have another Bukit in waiting – Bukit Lanjan. The orgy fest of the Bukits and Batang.. Ah Ah Har Har…
Few things. MSM is again, spinning for the establishment. So, let’s unspin the spin in this insignificant blog of mine.
If you read the MSM reports for the past few days, especially on Bukit Selambau by election, you may get this conclusion – Bukit Selambau Indian votes may shift because of ‘perceived’ change of Indian sentiments on the ground, reflected by the resignation by Jerai PKR division chief B. Kalaivanar and some PKR Indian leaders contesting as independents, defying the party’s rule.
Le’t start with Kalaivanar. I quote:
SUNGAI PETANI: PKR’s campaign for the Bukit Selambau state seat was dealt an early blow when more than 450 members, led by Jerai PKR division chief B. Kalaivanar, quit the party.
(Source: The Star)
The reason offered for quitting the party is typical hoollaballoo.
“he and many members were disappointed and frustrated that the party leadership had ignored the voices of those who had struggled for the party.”
So is that true? We shall examine closer. I tell you how to spot a liar even from far far far away.. heck I am sitting down here in Miri and the stench of his verbal diarhea is killing me. (figuratively lah!)
“While he admitted that he would like to be an elected representative for PKR, “
– Ah, got you bugger. This is the real reason why he is making all the noise.
“He also claimed that other divisions will follow but refused to name them.”
– Got you again, liar
Kalaivanar said he was motivated by a desire to defend true democracy, and would still go on campaigning during the Bukit Selambau by-election.
But when asked who he would be campaigning for, he said, “It will not be the PKR candidate, and it will not be any of the independent candidates.“
– This is the real reason No. 2, he’s offering himself in a very subtle way to BN for some reasons which I will mention later in this post.
“At one time the Reformasi movement dubbed (former Prime Minister Tun Dr) Mahathir (Mohamad) the ‘firaun’ (pharaoh), but now we can see that (PKR adviser Datuk Seri) Anwar (Ibrahim) is also a pharaoh and a dictator,” he said. He was, however, unable to provide concrete incidents and examples of how Anwar had been a dictator. – Again, cheap talk.
He also accused PR of indulging in excesses and cronyism as well, claiming that there were contracts and government-linked companies now in PKR’s pocket.
When asked for proof of his claims, however, he was unable to provide any, saying instead: “I’m not delving into details today. Today, I just want to announce my quitting the party.” – Again, just cheap talk.
Kalaivanar was also asked the reason why he chose to announce his decision during the by-election campaigning period.
“I will reveal my reasons tomorrow, step by step. I am not looking for cheap publicity, because I am a seasoned politician,” the 45-year-old said.
– Now, you want to know the REAL reason why this bugger bad mouthing PKR and PR government, hoohaa-ing about not being chosen as candidate?
PKR man faces cheating rap
June 11, 2008
SUNGAI PETANI: Parti Keadilan Rakyat candidate for the Gurun state seat in the last general election B. Kalaivanar was charged at the magistrate’s court yesterday with two counts of cheating involving RM3,600.
Kalaivanar, who is also Jerai PKR division chairman, claimed trial to inducing R. Patchama, 59, to hand over RM2,000 in April 2004 as payment to process an application for aid with the Social Security Organisation (Sosco).
Known as Kalai among PKR members, the 44-year-old also claimed trial to issuing a cheque for RM1,600 to Patchama on Sept 15, 2005, when he knew that there was no application for the amount with Socso. The cheque bounced.
The offences were allegedly committed at No 24, Kampung Sungai Ibur in Gurun, 20km from here.
Assistant public prosecutor Nuraswan Amuniddin proposed bail of RM4,000 in one surety for each charge.
Kalaivanar, a father of six, who was not represented, pleaded for a lower bail of between RM1,000 and RM1,500, saying that his wife was a housewife and that he worked as an activist with several non-governmental organisations.
Court Registrar V. Kanesan, sitting as magistrate, set bail at RM3,000 for each charge in one surety pending mention on July 6.
Kalaivanar posted bail, but was arrested again outside the bailiff’s office about 1pm.
It is learnt that he was detained in connection with investigations into his alleged involvement in another cheating case in Bahau, Negri Sembilan, several years ago.
Kuala Muda district police chief Assistant Commissioner Hashim Ali was not available for comment.
In the March 8 election, Kalaivanar lost to Dr Leong Yong Kong of Barisan Nasional in the Gurun state seat. He polled 7,035 votes against Dr Leong’s 8,589 votes, losing by 1,554 votes.
He also contested as a PKR candidate for the same state seat in the 2004 general election. He lost to the incumbent state MCA chairman Datuk Beh Heng Seong of BN.
Let me put this in a simple way.
1. PKR cannot choose anyone with a dubious background, what more with extra baggages like this guy. Remember what happened in Perak with Osman Jailu and Jamaluddin? This Kalai is one potential big, delicious frog.This guy would have been the worse choice ever to contest. With 2 court cases of cheating hanging over him, he would be a prime target for a ‘turnover’ like Osman and Jamaluddin.
Hey, in all coincidences (that’s how things go in Malaysia, yo! Coincidence!) this guy miraculously ‘bumped’ into Muhyiddin Yassin to congratulate him on his win in the Umno party election.
After the press conference, Kalaivanar was spotted by reporters shaking hands with newly elected Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin at the Cinta Sayang Resort here.
2.This guy was given the chance to contest in the 2 general elections, for Gurun seat and lost! Despite that, he was made Jerai division chief by PKR and he’s not grateful at all. Bugger still has the bloody cheek to submit his name as a canditate knowing full well he has been charged in court over cheating two ladies. He could not even afford bail and asked for it to be reduced, his finances seem to be in dire straits , making him easily bought.
3. With bad past records, had he be chosen as the Selambau’s candidate you can imagine how much the BN would have a field day in attacking the integrity of the PKR candidate. Just Imagine last week he was attacking BN vehemently but later he made a 360 degree turn in attacking PKR.
That shows his lack of principle and ideology, within 24 hours he has forgotten how BN has treated his 5 brothers in Kamunting and his fellow countrymen all over Malaysia.
Next, another two clowns from PKR defying party’s rule to disallow party members to contest as independence and in the event of doing so, they risk the threat of expulsion from the party.
A. Jayagopal, 57, who is on suspension as the Pokok Sena division chief, said he was contesting because the people on the ground were unhappy with the PKR’s choice of candidate.
“We are wondering why the PKR leadership chose a young candidate with no political acumen,” said Jayagopal, who claimed to have joined the party 11 years ago.
Bugger is on suspension and still busy making noise. Manikumar is a graduate from UUM and Malaysians definitely need more educated state assemblyman and better to have a younger candidate with fresh ideas to be in politics, you idiotic old fart. What political acumen? Like Samyvellu? He’s an ‘experienced’ politicians, the joker is holding the record for the longest serving party president now.
Jayagopal and Merbok member S. Moganakumar are among the 13 independents contesting against PKR’s S. Manikumar and Barisan Nasional’s Datuk S. Ganesan.
Moganakumar, 43, said he was contesting “to save PKR actually”.
Oh my, that’s the biggest joke after Samyvellu staying on as MIC chief honcho despite his ‘rejuvenation’ exercise to the party. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Seriously, I am sick of this Indian votes, Chinese votes, Malay votes thingy. In this case, stupid morons, the so called Indians keep harping on the Indian representative. Can’t you all think as Malaysians rather than thinking of race issue?
Please bare in mind that Indians form only about 27% of the electorates. Malay voters form more than 50% of the electorates. Should the Malays start to make noise about getting a Malay candidate to represent their interests?
The point is the elected representative is going to represent the whole community not Indian alone. PKR can just grab any candidate the party thinks is suitable to represent the whole community in Bukit Selambau and it’s not necessary must be an Indian. A remark about the candidate Manikumar shows how he is a perfect candidate for a mutltiracial platform like Pakatan Rakyat.
““sounds like a Malay, brought up as an Indian and has a business mind of a Chinese.”
To me, Hindraf leaders are not the suitable candidates to be chosen for the by election, especially to stand for PR. Choosing a Hindraf candidate is not very wise due to the movement’s Hindu-only struggle, as opposed to the Pakatan Rakyat’s struggle.
And, since over 50% of the residents in Bukit Selambau are made up of Malays, it would be unwise to choose an Indian from Hindraf as many Malays are apprehensive of the movement because of the damage done by the one-sided reporting of the MSM. Cheebuy MSM!
I have no idea why these buggers are in PKR if he doesn’t support the party’s struggle to uphold justice and multiracialism. To them it’s all about ‘me, me, me, Indian, Indian, Indian’. Bodoh! Go back to MIC then!
Take a look at Kalainaver. To leave the party and attack it viciously just because he or any other candidate “endorsed” by him was not selected, proves that Kalaivanar is not a suitable candidate for any Pakatan party. When these people are not selected to contest, they start to hammer the party and sow discord within their community.
The decision by PKR to choose a clean, unknown candidate over the experienced ones is one done with a lot of in depth thinking. It is good that the candidate selection process is done wisely, where dubious characters were purged now rather than later. Experience has shown that voters choose the party rather than the candidate.
Voters must rise above these low class self-serving politicians from their community who are only after personal gain.
ps: Although I think PKR’s decision to choose Manikumar as its candidate for Bukit Selambau is a wise move, the same cannot be said about Batang Ai’s candidate – Jawah Gerang . Have you read this report? – Heavy irony in Batang Ai, a remote land of contrasts. How sad, but true.
pss: Very busy, making some arrangements.
psss: No, you don’t know shit about me.
