Letter on Karpal views
An old friend of mine wrote to me. I am setting out the letter in full.
Karpal is increasingly becoming a loose cannon. He feels he has to say something about everything. It may be his right to speak up but he must also act responsibly as the leader of a major political party. This is not the time for infighting within PR.
First he attacks PAS about Hudud at the Kuala Trengganu by-elections and now he asks Anwar to step down. Whatever the justification for his diatribe against his political partners this is not the time to blow his top especially when Perak is in a crisis and when PR hopes to wrest East M’sia.
This is the time to show solidarity. Inter-party differences can be solved behind closed doors. Even if he wants to blast Anwar or PAS he must choose the right time to do it – NOT NOW. For now we must focus on BN and the Sultan of Perak.
I am surprised and disappointed with Karpal’s behaviour. If DAP expects to work with PAS and PKR it must learn to bite its tongue sometimes and control the loose cannons in the party – principally Karpal Singh.
If PR wants the support of the rakyat it must show solidarity. As you know I am disappointed with PR in many ways and with DAP in even more ways but when the chips are down I will not criticise the party. We must focus on the common enemy which is BN.
