DAP members protest against party’s Johor chief
JOHOR BARU: A small group of DAP members held a protest outside the office of the party’s state chief Dr Boo Cheng Hau, claiming that he had not helped the Indian community.
Taman Saga DAP branch chairman V. Thulasi Das claimed that although Dr Boo had no qualms about helping the Chinese, he gave excuses and turned down many requests from the Indians.
“It is frustrating as the DAP always says that it is willing to help people from all races. But Dr Boo prefers to just help the Chinese,” he said after the protest in front of Dr Boo’s office in Taman Seri Orkid here yesterday.
He said he had informed the party’s central committee but no action had been taken against Dr Boo.
Thulasi and 11 other DAP members from the area also stepped on a DAP flag and held placards criticising Dr Boo during their protest.
Dr Boo, meanwhile, rubbished the allegations.
“The last time I saw Thulasi was five years ago. How could he have brought people to my office when I have not seen him since 2007?
“I am giving him two weeks to come up with an apology, or else I will be forced to take legal action against him for defaming me and tarnishing my name and the party’s reputation,” he said.
