IPOH, Oct 6 — A group of DAP supporters today staged a demonstration demanding that Perak DAP deputy chairman M. Kulasegaran to quit the party.

Some 20 DAP Youth members of Indian origin gathered in front of the state DAP office at Medan Istana here carrying banners stating their support for Kulasegaran and of criticisms against the Perak DAP leadership.

Azman Mubarak, 24, who claimed to be the spokesman for the group, said a total of 300 DAP members from Buntung here were willing to follow Kulasegaran, who is also Ipoh Barat member of parliament, in quitting the party.

They were disappointed with the state DAP leadership for sidelining Kulasegaran and supporters of Indian origin, he added.

Another DAP member, Alex Raj, 22, said the gathering was held as a show of support for Kulasegaran and to condemn Perak DAP chairman Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham for allegedly practising nepotism and cronyism in Perak DAP.

“We feel cheated by DAP. They only need our votes in the election,” he added.

Kulasegaran is now in Nepal and expected to be back in a week.

There have been reports of a tiff between Kulasegaran, Ngeh and Perak DAP secretary Nga Kor Ming and that Kulasegaran has threatened to resign. — Bernama
