PKR MP Wee Choo Keong drops a bombshell

PKR MP Wee Choo Keong has dropped a bom shell - he has accused a certain Selangor state exco member of allowing his office to be used as a meeting place by people connected with "undesirable business activities."

The outspoken politician has even said that this was an open secret in the administrative secretariat and had given the impression that the state executive councillor endorsed such businesses. Wee has not named the state exco member concerned and what kind of underground activities were involved.

But he should take his allegation another step by naming the state exco member after arousing our curiousity. He can be expected to be challenged to do so. Wee made the statement in support of PKR MP Azmin Ali who has called for changes in the Selangor exco line-up.

DAP state exco member Teresa Kok fired a salvo against Azmin for the statement, saying it was arrogant. Wee, a former DAP stalwart, today made the same remark against Teresa, describing her a "greenhorn" in politics. The former Bukit Bintang MP, in his blog, took a swipe at Teresa for carrying the "senior state exco member" title, saying no such designation existed.

Many know who it is. I am sure even your newspaper knows who this person is. PKR is on the offensive to "clean up" the Pakatan coalition in two critical states of Selangor and Penang where it is secure in its mandate but appears to be unable to move forward in governance due to differences in how to handle the issues of the day, including protests and development.

Some people in government already think they still belong to NGOs or in the opposition.

I suspect the DAP will be the main casualty rather than PAS in this exercise. But it would do well for PKR to also discipline its own people, like Zul Noordin, whom you often refer to in your blog.

While BN may want to portray these type of incidents as fragmentation and infighting in the PR state governments, I take a contrary view. It would appear that there is democracy in the PR state governments, and the PR reps are allowed to speak out when they see things they do not agree with. It BN state and federal govenments, when there are massive wrong doings, everything get hushed up, and none of the BN members dare to speak out.

Wee should name that guy. Prove his misdeeds, then the PR state government should sack him. When we voted PR as the state government, we expect ity to be different from the BN government, not more of the same. We don't want BN, and we don't want a BN-type of replacement.

Some people like to play the 'guessing game'
Without ever trying to give any specific name
After having openly stated what's to blame
It's then left dangling like a duck that's lame
