Kayveas to suggest Murugiah’s replacement

KUALA LUMPUR, 12 May 2009: The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) may recommend one of its vice-presidents to replace Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk T Murugiah.

PPP president Datuk M Kayveas said he would give the candidate’s name to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak soon.

“We will suggest a more senior member, we must follow the hierarchy. When we give a junior member, it will create problems,” he told reporters after attending the opening of the 63rd Umno anniversary celebration here last night.

Last Saturday, Kayveas announced that Murugiah was expelled as he was alleged to have been involved in money politics. He was also accused of challenging the party presidency in the PPP elections next month.

Yesterday, Murugiah received two bullet casings and a note at his office in Putrajaya warning him against contesting for any posts in PPP. — Bernama

    Thats IS the problem with most Malaysian political parties and they never learn. The various leaders will do whatever to shore up his own power and interest (suspend, sack or invalidate) at the expense of his own party’s popularity with the people. Just because someone below him is getting more popular because he/she is working hard. Excuses will come pouring in to sack/suspend/sideline that particular person. Sigh – do these so-called leaders ever learn?

    The whole thing just makes the supreme the lowest form of council, it’s a waste of time to have politicians like this. Nothing about this is of any value to the nation. It all reeks of manipulation by men and women losing all integrity.

    Kayveas’s ego got in the way of doing his job then and it still is now. He is showing the same mentality as Samy Vellu. Keyveas will never learn, by next election there will be no more PPP. It’s not about seniority, it’s whether you can do the job or not. Murugiah is doing a good job and Kayveas?

    Another Samy Vellu, cannot do good job, won’t let others do good job also.

    PPP could try opposition but soon they would be fighting will them as well – for a small party it has never been able to get along with anyone! Kayveas really blatantly made a statement if BN does not listen to his wisdom! He will consider joining opposition and he has a master plan to overtake at least two states – what an insult to the rest of the world whom he really thinks are as stupid. For the first time BN maybe should just throw this party out.

    As far as I am concerned, MIC, PPP and IPF should be bundled together and shipped to the waters of Somalia. Maybe the pirates there will find a better use for them.

    They all say they are struggling to raise the Indian community but can’t stand to see another Indian doing well.

    Well, I am sure I will not vote for any of these jokers and nor will my relatives and clan. I’d rather vote for PAS/DAP/ PKR than these hypocrites.

    When will they ever learn?

    Dei Kayveas! Kavi udai potukittu ppp katchiyai suti-suti vaa! PPP endral enna?

    PPP – Padu Pokana Party.

    Instant literal translation by The Nut Graph (with apologies for any inaccuracy): Kayveas, go and wear hermit’s clothes and circumambulate around PPP. What does PPP mean? It’s a worthless party.
