DAP national chairman Karpal Singh said Ong had no business to call on Lim, the DAP adviser, to do so.
Ong was making a very poor effort in trying to distract attention from the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) debacle, he said.
Karpal, in a statement today, noted that in a public survey put up by Ong in his blog, “Should MCA leave BN?”, 75.8 per cent of those who participated were in favour of the component party pulling out from Barisan Nasional.
“Isn’t Ong morally obliged, in line with this survey, to pull out MCA from BN?” he asked.
Karpal said the DAP had, time and again, criticised Pas leaders whenever they made statements which were extreme in racial and religious content.
He noted that Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was also not spared for his proposal for unity talks with Umno.
Pas’ spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, in no uncertain terms, has publicly criticised his colleagues, including Hadi Awang, for pushing their agenda for unity talks with Umno.
“Hadi Awang owes an apology to both DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat as well as Nik Aziz for having proposed unity talks with Umno in clear breach of sincerity and bona fides in his dealings with DAP and PKR.
“It is only hoped in future that Hadi Awang thinks before he talks. He is fast becoming an embarrassment to Pakatan Rakyat,” Karpal said.
