The Chua-Boo spat in Johor
(The Star) - A PKR branch leader has told DAP national chairman Karpal Singh to “stop being a busybody” and apologise for questioning the credibility of Johor PKR chief Datuk Chua Jui Meng.
Bukit Bintang PKR branch deputy chairman Norzairi Jantan in a statement said that Karpal had no right to silence Chua, adding that PKR leaders answered to their party chairman and not to him.
“Karpal is stupid for attacking Chua in public. Moreover, he shouldn’t be criticising PKR leaders when he has been criticised by other DAP members over the party’s central executive committee polls fiasco,” he said.
Norzairi added that DAP would surely lose in Johor without PKR and also demanded that Karpal apologise directly to Chua over his comments.
It was reported that Karpal had chided Chua over his spat with Johor DAP chief Dr Boo Cheng Hau, who called for Chua’s removal.
Karpal, who is also Bukit Gelugor MP, also reportedly brought up the issue that Chua was a former MCA member and suggested an inquiry into claims made by Dr Boo.
