‘Anwar not sincere in helping Malay Indians’June 15th, 2009 - 12:39 pm ICT by ANI
Klang (Malaysia), June 15 (ANI): A former PKR top leader is accusing Anwar Ibrahim of not being sincere in wanting to help grassroots Indians.
PKR former deputy secretary-general P. Jenapala said the party’s grassroots Indian leaders had requested a meeting with the PKR de-facto leader several times to air their grouses but had always been brushed aside.
“They were denied the opportunity to express their grouses directly to Anwar and this has created a doubt in us if Anwar and PKR can truly represent the grassroots Indians,” The Star quoyed him, as saying.
Jenapala claimed that Anwar had recently promised to meet with the party’s Indian leaders, but had broken that promise.
One of their main grouses, said Jenapala, was the lack of Indian representation at the party’s top leadership.
He said there was an urgent need for Anwar to set things right.
Meanwhile, according to sources, many PKR Indian members have left the party to join the newly formed Malaysian Makkal Sakthi Party. (ANI)
