Today, MCA Disciplinary Council recommended that I to be expelled from the MCA. The decision comes as no surprise because there has been a sustained attempt by the MCA President to subvert the wishes of the rank and file and end my political career.
But as a loyal party man, I have to abide by the decision of the Disciplinary Board and the Presidential Council. I am confident that MCA comrades will understand fully the events leading to the suspension and why the MCA leadership needs to keep me on the sidelines.
It is an open secret that those who are not on the same page with the MCA President are regarded as his enemies or a threat. These people are labelled as:
* Anti-MCA and out to destroy MCA;
* Cooperating with businessmen and taking money from them to topple him
The MCA President has outlined 3 main agenda for the party: Economic, Politics and Inter-racial Harmony. But in reality, it appears that his most important political agenda is to remove Chua Soi Lek.
Now that I have been suspended, I hope he can sleep well.
But not all of us have that luxury. For those of us who love the MCA, our work has just begun.
Today, it is not about Chua Soi Lek, neither it is about Ong Tee Keat. It is about MCA as the second largest component party of BN still drifting without direction and purpose.
It has been more than 16 months since the March 8 general election and 10 months since the last party election. But there has been little evidence of change.
There is no closing of ranks, no unity, morale is low and suspicion is the order of the day.
The Permatang Pasir by-election result is evidence of how far the party has slipped.
Comrades who love the party will come to realize that its time to stand up and unite to save the party. Otherwise, we will soon fade into oblivion.
I have confidence that MCA members will not let one man self-destroy the party. It will be a sad day for MCA that if we do not rise to the challenge of saving the party. Doing nothing is not an option; saving the party is the only way to move forward so that we can contribute to strengthen BN and together help to achieve One Malaysia.
