Keadilan "Playing Dirty Politics" Says Samy Vellu. Is This True?
The one question which rational people would like to pose to uncle Sam is what else can the opposition do if all avenues of informing the people about their manifesto, future plans and even grouses are totally blocked by the government? RTM (and including especially the Information Minister) have admitted openly that they would go all out to support BN while denouncing the opposition and their 'lies'. Given this scenario, which political party is really playing dirty politics is a moot question. The full Bernama report follows.
MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, Tuesday described the action by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in distributing fliers containing various allegations against the government and Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders as "world class dirty politics".
He said the action would only be self-destructive as it made it clear to the people of how low their leaders were willing to stoop in their campaigning, he told reporters here.
"If we want, we can distribute thousands of pictures of their leaders and adviser but we're not going to do it because what happened in the past, we will not raise it again."
The BN was not interested in emulating the opposition party's immoral action, said Samy Vellu who was among the victims of slander during the Ijok by-election which is seeing a straight contest between K. Parthiban of the BN and PKR candidate Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.
He said the PKR leaders should know that if they wanted to be true leaders of the people, they should not do things that were not beneficial including to themselves.
"The dirtier they play, they will lose in the end," said Samy Vellu who earlier visited two houses in Taman Purnama, Batang Berjuntai, that caught fire, Monday.
****** Well, now that you've read about Samy Vellu's opinion on the 'dirty politics' being played by Keadilan, what do you think? Is is really wrong for PKR to have sent out fliers, given the constraints under which they have been forced to campaign?
