DAP will form “senior citizens” branches throughout the country to tap the resources, talents and experience of senior citizens to contribute to the nation-wide campaign to “Save Malaysia from kleptocracy” in contrast to MCA leadership which regards senior citizens as useless deadwood
I want to announce at the DAP kopitiam dialogue in Plentong this morning that the DAP will form a series of “senior citizens” branches throughout the country to tap the resources, talents and experience of the senior citizens, regardless of race or religion, to contribute to the nation-wide campaign to “Save Malaysia from kleptocracy” in contrast to the MCA leadership which regards senior citizens as useless deadwood.
I confess I was shocked last week when I saw the letter from the MCA Secretary General Ong Ka Chuan sacking a former Plentong village chief for nine years, Wong Kong Fook as a MCA member for being photographed with me during my visit to Plentong.
This is utterly mad, devoid of moral principles and standards, and something no sane or rational party or leader would do.
I welcome Wong Kong Fook who has “abandoned darkness, joined light” and has applied and been approved as a DAP member.
The three MCA Ministers and leaders, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai (MCA President), Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong (MCA Deputy President) and Datuk Ong Ka Chuan (MCA Secretary-General) should publicly apologise for the crazy, irrational and morally unjustifiable expulsion of Wong Kong Fook, the former Johore village chief for nine years as a MCA member for being photographed with me.
In fact, all the senior citizen members in MCA throughout Johor and Malaysia should protest and demand unqualified apology from the MCA top leaders for the most unfair and shameful treatment of Wong Kong Fook.
Many people from Plentong had been photographed with me this morning during my visit to Plentong, and if they are MCA members, I do not know whether they will suffer the same fate as Wong Kong Fook and be sacked from MCA.
Both Tiong Lai and Ka Siong had been photographed with me at some function or other. Are Tiong Lai and Ka Siong going to be expelled from MCA as happened to this former Johore village chief for nine years, and who had a longer MCA membership history than Tiong Lai, or are there obviously double-standards in the MCA, one for the MCA leaders and Ministers and another for the MCA rank-and file?
After the news of Wong Kong Fook of being sacked from MCA for being photographed with me became public, the MCA leadership was quite embarrassed, and denied that Wong Kong Fook was sacked because he was photographed with me.
If Wong Kong Fook was sacked not because he was photographed with me, can the MCA leaders explain why the former nine-year kampong ketua was sacked from MCA?
