Trouble in <b>Sungai Pelek</b> DAP | Free Malaysia Today

Some members say P Sivakumar's shortcomings as a leader resulted in violence at a meeting over Ponggal celebrations

PETALING JAYA: Trouble may be brewing in Sungai Pelek DAP and it is centred on some members' dissatisfaction with the way the party's constituency coordinator, P Sivakumar, carries out his job.

A DAP insider belonging to the disgruntled group told FMT that Sivakumar had often allowed outsiders into party functions and this had resulted in at least one violent incident.

He said Sivakumar was often late in informing members about party activities and would rope in outsiders to shore up the crowds.

According to him, a meeting last Jan 12 was marred by a brawl between an outsider known only as Murthi and the chairman of DAP's Pantai Sepang Putra branch, R Vellasamy.

The meeting, which Sivakumar chaired, was to appoint an official to take charge of the Ponggal celebrations.

"Over the years, it was always Vellasamy who would organise the celebration," the insider said. "However, this year Sivakumar gave the job to Murthi, a party outsider.

"Murthi made a threat against Vellasamy and raised a chair to hurt him. Sivakumar did not defend Vellasamy and instead provided Murthi with 20 DAP shirts for the Ponggal function."

Vellasamy confirmed that the fight took place.

"I did not lodge a police report to maintain the party's good name," he told FMT. "But I had some bruises on my arm."

Sivakumar denied that the disagreement between Murthi and Vellasamy amounted to a fight.

"The function was jointly organised with local residential associations," he said.  "Murthi represented one of the associations and he was in the joint organising committee. They had a minor argument and continued discussing the Ponggal bash for over an hour."

He also denied distributing DAP shirts. "I gave out 20 Pakatan shirts to the volunteers, which I am allowed to distribute. They were not DAP shirts."

The Sungai Pelek state seat is currently held by MCA's Yap Ee Wah, who won it in 2008 in a three-way fight with A Sivananthan of DAP and independent candidate Abdul Manap Sahardin.
