Didn't we ask the question: "Is Karpal-Ramasamy spat really over?" on Dec 12th?
We said it won't be over till the wheel-chairman sing. The wheel-chairman will not bow to grave infringement of principle. The rule is the rule and other issue is of no relevence. As he sees it, play or do your politics by the rule.
DAP’s Karpal Singh tells Ramasamy to quit as Penang dep CM IIIf Ramasamy is asked to leave, it means Karpal is requesting that the choice of the heir-apparent of DAP is being questioaned.
GEORGE TOWN: DAP national chairman Karpal Singh has urged Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy to resign from his post for making serious allegations against party leaders.
“Dr Ramasamy's position in the state government is no longer tenable because he had defied the decision of the party's three-member committee not to refer the party's internal problems to the press,” he said in a press conference on Saturday.
Karpal Singh said Dr Ramasamy had publicly disclosed allegations about party leaders and members without any basis.
He was referring to the report in The Star on Friday quoting Dr Ramasamy as saying his critics were plotting against him because he did not respond to their overtures for projects and favours.
“This is a serious allegation. Till now, Dr Ramasamy has not denied making the statement,” he said.
The Lim & Son tried to play down the issue by roping in Adviser for Life, Dr Chen Man Hin to make a joint stateent to say that the issue is resolved, which apparently is far from resolve.
Karpal understood the message and he kept quiet to wiling have the dispute addressed through proper party channel if not for Ramasamy's attempt to be smart. You can't keep an Indian from talking.
Ramasamy repeated the joint statement to say the issue is resolved. That blew Karpal's turban. Opps sorry, Karpal has not been wearing turban for a while. That blew his top off and thus the latest statement.
