PETALING JAYA, 26 Sept 2008: Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, who is contesting for the post of MCA deputy president, said today that a conspiracy is being mobilised among party delegates to assassinate his political career.
He said the conspiracy involved the distribution of caricatures of him, aimed at tarnishing his image besides giving the impression that he was an irresponsible doctor and people’s representative.
He said the caricatures showed him in three situations, namely when he was serving as a medical doctor, when he became the health minister and as a candidate who resorted to corrupt practices ahead of the party’s leadership election on 18 Oct.
“They portray me as an unethical medical practitioner besides me being a minister who received rewards for each development project of ministry.
“I was also shown giving RM10,000 to a delegate to buy his vote when I have never given money to anyone, especially not the delegates,” he told a press conference here today.
Chua said he has lodged a report at the Petaling Jaya police station over the caricatures and given the names of two MCA members believed to be closely connected to the case because they knew what happened in the ministry when he was health minister.
“Let the police investigate and if it is true, they will surely get something in return for the immoral work,” he said. — Bernama
