Uproar against Ngeh and Nga at DAP convention
IPOH: A commotion broke out at the Perak DAP convention with delegates accusing two of their leaders of blocking members from forming new branches.
A disgruntled delegate demanded that state chief Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham and secretary Nga Kor Ming explain the matter.
There had been talk that the cousins had been using their influence to strengthen their hold in the party.
The delegate claimed he had found out from the national headquarters that Ngeh and Nga had rejected the application for new branches to be set up.
Other delegates also pounced on the two men, criticising them of using the Chinese media to attack members for holding party activities.
A delegate also lambasted Ngeh over his controversial tweet over the film trailers of the Innocence of Muslims movie, pointing out he should have been more considerate and not hurt the feelings of the Malay community.
When contacted, Ngeh brushed aside the grouses, saying there should be proper procedures when dealing with party matters.
“The issues raised were old ones, for which I had already made the necessary clarifications,” he said, declining to elaborate.
