Four former DAP members led by Pertubuhan Minda Dan Sosial Prihatin (PMSP) president Ramesh Rao handed over a memorandum at the DAP headquarters in Kuala Lumpur today urging the party to sack its advisor Lim Kit Siang for what they claim as his lies for the past 22 years.

Ramesh who was also a former member of the Subang DAP branch said Kit Siang has been accusing Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the father of grand corruption but has now forged an apparent alliance with the former premier’s Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) in a bid to oust Prime Minister Najib Razak.

“We have sent a memorandum to DAP urging the party to immediately sack Lim Kit Siang.

“Since 1969 Kit Siang has been accusing the ruling government as corrupted and also accused Mahathir as the father of grand corruption but now he sits on the same stage with the former premier.

“I think Kit Siang assumes all DAP members and Malaysians are fools and all the accusations thrown at Mahathir are lies just to confuse the people,” Ramesh told reporters after submitting the memorandum.

The memorandum was received by Madam Lam, an administration executive at the DAP headquarters.

When questioned on their next course of action should DAP ignores the memorandum, Ramesh said they would look for Kit Siang in his constituency to pressure him to resign.

“DAP should walk their talk, for any allegations against BN leaders, they (DAP) will ask the leaders to resign.

“DAP should do the same too. Why are they practising double standards?” questioned Ramesh.

Also present today was Tony Tan, former personal assistant to Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, wearing a yellow Bersih t-shirt.

“I’m wearing this Bersih t-shirt to ask DAP to ‘Bersih’ (clean) their leaders first before pointing fingers at others,” said Tan.
