Update: Buntong assemblyman retracts resignation


To all my readers who commented on my earlier post of A.Sivasubramaniam, he has now retracted his resignation.

First and foremost someone must drill into his head the relationship he has to maintain with the voters who have made him to be an assemblyman. Some would have encouraged him to stand in Buntong, but for the rest, he was an anonymous person who, because he was a DAP man, stood there and got elected. In order of importance, he is obliged to the voters first and the party. If he had no party, I doubt the people will consider him significant. Whatever he maybe in private life, his position improved because of the people and party. He has no track record to prove his brilliance and this so called brilliance can only be accessed after serving his constituency for some years. But he chose a rebellious way, forgot the factors that brought him to this position, let his imagination run wild and egoistically let down the people and party.

His first argument is he was promised  there will be two Indian representatives. one from Buntong and the other from Tronoh. Did he discuss with his party the reasons why the two were left out. He has not made known the reasons given by DAP for not adhering to the promise.

Second he talks about the mandate, the voters care two hoots if he is not in the exco, only he feels treated slightly, and he should keep the people out of the argument. The people want good government and that is why they voted him and not because they want him as an exco. This exco thing is his own doing.

Sivanesan is from Selangor, please tell me how many of the excos are from Perak. In any case, so,  a Selangor man will only serve the people in Selangor, but then he, Sivanesan will be in the Perak Assembly, does that disqualify him based on his home state. This is faulty argument. 

So A.Sivasubramaniam you are a very ambitious person, fighting for your own glory, forgetting to reciprocate the kindness of the voters and party who voted you on 8th March. What difference is there between you and the members of the former ruling party who were greedy. Your greed to ‘give me, give me’ has been shown, and you will remain a villain in the eyes of not only the Buntong voters, DAP and the rest of Malaysia. You are being watched.

I hope your further statement will clear up the mess you have got into. 

Update: Buntong assemblyman retracts resignation

PETALING JAYA: Buntong assemblyman A. Sivasubramaniam, who earlier quit all posts in the DAP, has retracted his resignation.

He was scheduled to hold a press conference Monday evening to explain his about-turn.

In a letter to DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng earlier Monday, Sivasubramaniam said he had had lost confidence in the Perak DAP as it failed to fulfill its promise to appoint two Indian state executive council members.

He added the decision was a “big slap” in the face of Perak Indians and tantamount to deceiving the community.

“My victory in Buntong was a mandate given by the Indian community in the area, and therefore I cannot accept the decision made by the Perak DAP,” he added.

When contacted, Sivasubramaniam said he would not vacate his seat and would instead serve as an independent.

“I have no intention of joining any Barisan component party but will fight for the people of Buntong as an independent,” he said.

He also questioned why DAP central executive committee member A. Sivanesan, who is from Selangor, was chosen as an exco over other Perak DAP leaders.

Sivasubramaniam claimed that he and state party committee member and Tronoh assemblyman V. Sivakumar were supposed to get the exco posts as they had worked hard and sacrificed a lot for the party.

He added that even if an Indian Perak DAP member were to get an assembly Speaker or Deputy Speaker post, it could not “do much for the Indian community.”

“This is not right. The leadership should be discussing the allocation of exco posts and other appointments with all 18 DAP assemblymen,” said Sivasubramaniam.

Of the 10 exco members sworn in on March 29, six were from DAP, including one Indian representative, Sungkai assemblyman A. Sivanesan.

In the March 8 general election, the Opposition coalition won 31 state seats in Perak – 18 seats went to DAP, seven to PKR, and six to PAS – while Barisan bagged 28 seats.
