MCA: Gag order reveals hypocrisy

When taxpayer’s money are at stake, Perak MCA leader Tan Chin Meng says Pakatan will impose another gag order.

(Free Malaysia Today) – The gag order imposed by DAP on its internal squabbles reveals the party’s hypocrisy, said Perak MCA secretary Tan Chin Meng.

He cited the gag order issued by party stalwart Lim Kit Siang on DAP vice chairman M Kulasegaran after he gave the party’s Perak secretary Nga Kor Ming a dressing down over his alleged abuse of power.

Nga, who is MP for Taiping, came under fire when an Umno blog claimed his wife’s company, Ethan and Elton Sdn Bhd, was awarded the tender to tailor lounge suits for Ipoh city councillors when Pakatan Rakyat was in power in Perak.

The award was given despite the company having charged the highest price for the suits. Rivals also pointed to the fact that the company was registered with the Companies Commission Malaysia barely 42 days after Pakatan formed the state government.

Nga, who is considered one of Lim’s blue-eyed boys, denied any wrongdoing and said the contract was awarded via an open tender process.

Lim was forced to intervene when Kulasegaran, who openly rebuked and demanded en explanation from the Taiping MP, saying the matter was internal.

“When taxpayers funds are at stake, another gag order is the standard order of the day from Pakatan,” commented Tan on the matter.

The MCA leader also pointed to the ongoing public spat between DAP chairman Karpal Singh and Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy.

While the differences between the two were purportedly resolved, Tan said the three-men panel comprising DAP life adviser Dr Chen Man Hin, advisor Lim and his son, secretary general Guan Eng, failed to launch an internal probe the into allegations of cronyism against Ramasamy.
