BN should teach ‘big mouth’ Kayveas a lesson Mohd Kamal Abdullah Oct 11, 07 3:22pm (as appeared in Malaysiakini online news) M Kayveas’ recent outburst against the MIC is really uncalled as the Indian-based party had assisted him in furthering his law education in United Kingdom. Rather than feeling grateful, he now criticises the MIC and its leadership.
Kayveas need to realise that he has obtained the PPP leadership by dubious means when the courts were unable to ascertain his membership.
The time has come for the Barisan Nasional to expel Kayveas and his PPP from its fold. Kayveas should learn to do what he preaches instead of trying to seek publicity through cheap political stunts.
It is hoped that MIC will make a formal complaint with BN leaders to reprimand Kayveas and his PPP party by not allocating any seat to them in the coming polls.
Nazri should quit gracefully Mohd Kamal AbdullahOct 2, 07 5:01pm (as appeared in Malaysiakini online news) With the current judicial issue that has been blown out of cover, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Nazri Abdul Aziz should admit that he has been feeding the rakyat with false information regarding the incidents that affect his ministry since taking office such as the Lingam tape.
Nazri should gracefully resign from his position to take responsibility for his failure to tackle the problem or the cabinet should immediately sack him for covering up these incidents which has tarnish the reputation of the government and the rakyat in Malaysia.
It’s time for Nazri to accept the rakyat's decision since he had been given a government-aided education in the legal field in the United Kingdom and which he should have used with pride and wisdom.
It is the responsibility of the government to conduct an investigation on the incidents reported and punish all those involved, irrespective of their standing. A independent body comprising of the ordinary rakyat should be established to avoid further confusion on the neutrality and independence of the panel decision. Anyone who had fouled the law should be reprimanded and punished, and only with this act will the confidence of the rakyat be restored.
