I wanted to move on from partisan politics to other issues affecting the nation.
Before I do that, I need to post something that one of the top leaders of the party told me. I am not at liberty to name him. (doctors are bound to doctor-patient confidentiality , and we are very good to keep things confidential )
We have a chat over the phone yesterday, and he said that he wanted to tell me the inside story about Lee Kah Choon.
As a responsible blogger, I will post his side of the story and his views.
Apparently, a few days after the general election, Lee met with top leaders and asked to be given the task of leading Penang and be the next CM if Gerakan win back Penang. When there was no reply from the leadership, which was still cosidering his request, Lee resigned from all his positions a few days later . Then few weeks later he accepted the 2 posts. The view of the leadership is that this sort of behaviour is selfish and not in the interest of the party. Also, this is part of plot of Pakatan to split Gerakan members.
I explained that what I have done is to present another angle of viewing this issue, strictly from the view of a rakyat who does not know the inside story. What I have presented and the majority of the commentors’ views are from a non partisan angle. So perhaps, this can serve as a feedback to the leadership. After all, people’s view and perception is the most important if the party wishes to win back the support of the people.
And even with this inside story, I still feel that the party should not have played into the trap that DAP has set, by attacking him openly and by giving show cause letter. I still feel that If the party has shown magnanimity and be big eough not to take action, it will not have played into DAP’s hands.
Well. This is my own opinion. I also standby my view stated in the press release that the advisor should keep to his promise of not interfering.
