The Malay Mail,
ays Murugiah not fit to be a politician

PEOPLE’s Progressive Party (PPP) president Datuk M. Kayveas has lambasted his former protégé, Senator T. Murugiah, after the later said that he has set his eyes on East Malaysia.

The former deputy minister said he would be surprised if any political party accepted Murugiah. “He can go east, west, north or south. I am least bothered. “All the BN component parties will be wondering what kind of person Murugiah is. He condemned his own president and created unrest in the party. He is not fit to be a politician in any form,” said the vocal party president. “I was like a father figure to him. In fact, I am the one who taught him how to dress properly. But, once he got his deputy minister’s post, he wanted to change everything in the party. We wanted to save the party and the cancer was removed.” He said that Murugiah’s claims of having 157,000 members with him should be taken with a pinch of salt.
“In the 10 years of him being a PPP man, he has only brought in 30 members. Now, he has 157,000 supporters. I find this hard to believe. “He should look at former Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim. He resigned from his minister’s post and then shopped for a new party.” When asked if he would meet the Prime Minister to discuss this matter further, Kayveas said: “I do not like to use the Prime Minister’s name and say things. We do not survive like that. The PM knows our stand on this matter and it is quite clear.” On Sunday, Murugiah was reported as saying that he would announce early next month the name of the party he and his 157,000 supporters would be joining. He hinted that it was a peninsula-based multiracial party that was a component of BN, and that it had promised him the post of deputy president if he and his supporters joined. Murugiah, who was sacked from the PPP in June, further claimed that almost 90 per cent of PPP members backed him and that he had to heed their wishes in finding an alternative party that suited them. Yesterday, Malay Mail reported that Murugiah had set his eyes on East Malaysia to buoy his political career. He added that he made the choice to look to East Malaysia after exhausting his search for a multiracial
party here. However, he said the decision to join a party would be made after he had spoken with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
