Former Segambut MP joins PKR - Star

PETALING JAYA: Sept 6, 2008 By ROYCE CHEAH

Former Segambut MP and Federal Territories Gerakan chief Datuk Dr Tan Kee Kwong has joined PKR citing that he has lost faith in Barisan Nasional.

Speaking at a press conference Saturday together with PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Dr Tan said he had submitted his decision to resign from Gerakan via fax at 11am on Friday.

"The decision was not easy but the sentiments were there. I also received the support of my wife and close friends," he said, adding that the decision was made two days ago.

Dr Tan, 62, said that Gerakan had not contacted him since the letter was faxed and that the party had also not "talked about him" for the past six weeks.

"I joined PKR because I believe it is the party of the future and that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is leading the charge to make Malaysia a better country."

When asked if he was sad about leaving the party he had joined in 1995, Dr Tan said it was not about being sad but about doing what was right in the little time that anyone has in life.

"It is actually a breath of fresh air for me. I know that people might criticise me for being ungrateful but even in my previous party I was considered an irritant, a cancer in the party that refused to follow the mainstream."

Dr Tan said in his time in Government, as a former Deputy Land and Cooperative Development Minister, he had tried his best to effect change from within but could not.

"And any effort to effect change now would be impossible."

He said all Barisan component parties ought to reassess themselves and be honest about what they stood for in politics, adding that he was not advocating mass defections.

Read what Tun Dr Lim tell Malaysians about his frank and honest true story. Thank you.

“I tell you , I’m not a happy man. Happily retired, but not happy. After having spent forty years in politics and seeing the (state of the) country now I am not happy,” said Tun Dr Lim Keng Yaik who sat down for a two-hour interview.

• “We had the worst kind of Umno arrogance as a result of the 2004 elections. The abuse of power, corruption, ‘negotiated tenders’ with government tenders going mainly to Umno-associated companies. All this is not decided by Cabinet but by the Ministry of Finance” he said.

• “God help me, how many times I raised it with (Tun Dr.) Mahathir. I said: ‘Sir, you’re the only one who can change Umno lah.’ I told him I have seen how money politics spread from national, to state, to division, and then to branch levels. In the March election, all the new candidates of ours were given hell by the Umno divisional chairmen. It’s all
money, money, money, money, money.”

• “I tell you in Penang, now all the land cases coming up have nothing to do with (Tan Sri
Dr) Koh Tsu Koon. He was not strong enough to stop the Umno fellas. Let’s see the land cases coming up; you’ll find an Umno arm all over the place.”

• “If PKR, with one MP (in 2004) can forge a new Pakatan Rakyat, is it possible for us to
form a third force - a combination of parties from both BN and Pakatan Rakyat? You think the Kadazans are not looking at it?” (Off The Edge)

Umno, the backbone of the ruling Barisan Nasional government, has issued a public apology over a remark made by Bukit Bendera Umno division head Datuk Ahmad Ismail during the Permatang Pauh parliamentary by-election last month.

• “We hope that the non-Malays will not be too disturbed with the statement and we apologise if it has incurred the sensitivities or unhappiness over the statement.

• “We apologise, Umno apologises although it is not our statement but it is a statement made by one of our division leaders. It is totally unwarranted and does not reflect the position and the attitude of Umno or the leadership of Umno. We regret it very much,” Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.

With the Gates of Hell closed again, the Hungry Ghost month has come to an end in August 2008 but did you really understand what went on during that time?

The Permatang Pauh by election left out the Biggest Enemy of the State of Living “Racist Syaitan Pontianak” from a hill called Bukit Bendera still roaming the island with his dirty big mouth kept opening to suck the blood of living people and incited racial tension among all peaceful multicolor people. Worst scenario, his Guardians of Gates of Hell have openly apologised for his behalf for his evil racist remark to all living people but the Syaitan Pontianak continues his arrogance to spike his poison venom on the living rakyat of all colors. Even his members of the component Evil gangs criticised to get rid of the naughty spirit of this Syaitan Pontianak but his dirty venom soul remained stubborn to voice out more evil words to blame the good Saint Heaven reporters cover his story during his evil guilty speeches. Unfortunate Pak Hantu defended his Syaitan blaming the Saint Heaven spirit for misreporting causing tension among living people.

The Gates of HELL has finally closed, the White Soldiers (Ghosts) take care of the souls and spirits Ghosts were called back to HELL now, left the unresolved Syaitan Pontianak still roaming with trouble venom on earth in the island. It is timely for the BOMOH to help Rakyat Master (Anwar) to find a best solution to bless the 30 defectors from HELL to become Saints of Heaven this coming 916 (Auspicious Date) to release the 50 years of painful racist rule from unwanted corrupt Syaitans and greedy Pontianaks.

It is time to change the island from HELL to HEAVEN living said an old granny spirit in my dream visited to HELL for few minutes during the GHOST month. The Saint voters from Permatang Pauh has raised the Heaven Goodwill for all peaceful colorful people for a better change for better future.

Well , it is time to get rid of all Syaitan, Hantu,Toyo and Pontianak racist devils still roaming our nation this coming 916 D - Day.
