Media statement by M.Kula Segaran from Nepal on Tuesday, 5th October 2010:
Perak DAP shall continue to be the beacon of hope for a better Malaysia
I have been planning for two months for this one week trip away from home. This is my third day here in Nepal.
My family and I are happy with our stay here. But while enjoying the sightseeing and foods here, my thoughts are also with my second family back home in Malaysia - the DAP.
DAP is like a family and comrades are just like brothers and sisters. The last thing I want to do is to hurt this family and the family members.
Nevertheless, to all those Party leaders and members as well as party supporters who have felt disappointment or even anger over the Perak family problem becoming a public issue, I hereby tender my sincere apologies.
I have no hidden agenda or ill intention. My conscience is clear.
I spoke no lie and made no insinuation against anyone. I was prepared to go open and tell all--nothing but the truth.
But since I have agreed with the Party Secretary General Sdr Lim Guan Eng of the need to cease talking about internal issues openly, I shall abide by the agreement.
I wish to take this opportunity to reiterate that despite the problems, challenges and disappointment, I shall remain committed to the DAP cause.
Sdr Lim Kit Siang hit the nail on its head when he said that Perak DAP must demonstrate leadership which can win public confidence and support.
I shall play my part to ensure that DAP shall continue to be the beacon of hope for Malaysians who have yearned so long for a better Malaysia.
