National DAP vice-president M Kulasegaran has resorted to micro-blogging site, Twitter, to vent his anger against Perak DAP chief Ngeh Koo Ham and state secretary Nga Kor Ming over allegations of him being sidelined, corrupt practices and the belittling of the Indian community.

The Twitter messages appear to indicate the worsening factional problems within Perak DAP.

“I joined DAP with clear conviction. Don’t test M. Kula.

“Keep your house in order. @ngehkooham @ngakorming. I am least worried about you and your antics.

“Some party leaders are so oblivious. Bro, Perak politics will explode if I start speaking. Matter of time only …..,” Kulasegaran, who is also Ipoh Barat MP, wrote on Twitter last night.

Kulasegaran leads one faction and the Nga-Ngeh cousins lead another faction. Ngeh is Beruas MP and Sitiawan state assemblyman whereas Nga is Taiping MP and Pantai Remis state assemblyman.

Both the factions are aligned to DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.

In this series of Twitter messages, Kulasegaran also claimed to be sidelined in a March 8 anniversary ceramah session that was led by Ngeh and Nga in his constituency.

The ceramah session was held in conjunction with the historic win of the opposition alliance which took over five states and denied the ruling coalition its traditional two- thirds majority during the 12th general election five years ago.

The ceramah session was also attended by DAP national legal bureau chairman, Gobind Singh Deo. Gobind is also Puchong MP and the son of national DAP chairman, Karpal Singh.

“People ask me if I am speaking in Ipoh today in my consitutency Ipoh Barat. What do I need to say? Factional!” Kula wrote in a message addressed to Gobind.

“I am not concerned. I always stood by principles. But have I outlive my usefulness?

In conjunction with the March 8 anniversary, he also pointed out at the corrupt practice within the DAP which he referred to as the “tailor gate”.

“We made history five years ago today. Many have changed for the better but some some are involved in businesses like ‘tailor gate’. Can avoid?”
