KUALA LUMPUR: Bersih chairperson Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan has denied speculations that she wants to sever ties with Parti Keadilan Rakyat leaders Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Azmin Ali.
A blog post in Stop the Lies claimed Ambiga had been fuming over Bersih 3.0 and inwardly blames Anwar and Azmin for allegedly instigating the crowd to break down barriers and forcefully enter the cordoned Dataran Merdeka.
The blogger wrote that Ambiga has decided to have nothing to do with the duo and felt betrayed by Pakatan Rakyat.
Ambiga who replied to The Mole via text messages said: “Pakatan supports and continues to support Bersih’s cause and we welcome that.’’
“Am I expected to respond to all blog postings? I do not think so.”
On a query as to whether she was angry with Anwar and Azmin, Ambiga's reply was: “I have always claimed there was more going on at the barrier than meets the eye and the Suhakam should determine the truth.”
“I am fuming with the police over Bersih 3.0. Not all of them but those who went on rampage,’’ she added.
The blog post in Stop the Lies also alleged Ambiga felt betrayed and let down by those in Pakatan and she should have known better than to trust politicians especially ones like Anwar.
Asked if she felt that she was being used by Anwar into fulfilling his political ambition, Ambiga's reply in her text message was: "No".
