In the first place, why he made the decision under DAP ticket, was he chosen or his willingness to contest. If he was chosen, the reason must be to attract more India voters, if his willingness, he must have though about the coming Indian representative inside DAP.
The racial breakdown for the Buntong constituency is Chinese (47%), Indian (46.2%), Malay (6.1%) and others (0.6%). He obtained 10,311 votes against MCA Lee Tung Lai 4996 votes with the majority of 5315. It is unfair and unjustified base on the racial point to say that his electoral victories in Perak were purely the political result of Makkal Sakti, which claimed to be rallying the cry for Indian Malaysian who felt marginalised by BN government.
If he was looking for a greener pasture, that is unexplainable. This is a lesson for DAP to think or to ponder through.
Buntong assemblyman A. Sivasubramaniam, who earlier quit all posts in the DAP, has retracted his resignation. In a letter to DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng earlier Monday, Sivasubramaniam said he had had lost confidence in the Perak DAP as it failed to fulfill its promise to appoint two Indian state executive council members.
