PKR leader add another nail to Anwar’s crucifiction, again

“Rumblings in the interior”. Trouble brewed in Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) again and this time it was at the eve of this year’s annual convention in Seremban. Today, Dato’ S. Nallakaruppan resigned from the party. His deep disappointment was the primary cause. This is no ordinary ‘indigestion’.

This was his press statement:

Press Statement

I thank those of you who are gathered here today and PKR party members who have given me their full support.

I have been asked by the Advisor not to compete for the position of Vice President in the election to be held on 26-5—2007 in order to give way to his blue-eyed boy and so called “first choice”, Azmin Ali, I have no other alternatives but to follow instructions, As such, I submitted my letter of withdrawal on Friday, 18-5-2007.

I joined PKR believing in the spirit of multicultural and multiracial politics. Various assurances were given by the party leadership on my role with PKR, especially amongst the Indian community. After the recent events, I no longer have confidence in the leadership of PKR including the current Advisor, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim was a close friend of mine but it seems we are apart now. I feel let down as a Malaysian Indian and have sympathy and empathy for the plight of my community and its struggles. To remain faithful to my community and my ideals, I am prepared to sacrifice my friendship with the Advisor of PKR and the leadership of the party.

Therefore, I hereby announce that I am tendering my resignation as a member of PKR and will relinquish all positions held by me in the party with immediate effect.

Thank you

Dato’ Nalla K.S

Bernama online,, has the story for the special media conference at Grand Seasons Hotel today:


Nallakaruppan Quits PKR E-mail this news to a friend Printable version of this news



KUALA LUMPUR, May 25 (Bernama) — “I have known him for 30 years, I visited him when he was in prison in Sungai Buloh, that’s how close we are, and when he asked me to join PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat), I did because I thought PKR could fight for the Indian community, I was wrong.”

“I was let down and now I’m prepared to sacrifice my friendship with (Datuk Seri) Anwar (Ibrahim) because now I know there is no place for Indians in the party.”

Those were the words uttered by Kepong PKR chief Datuk K. Nallakaruppan when announcing his resignation from the party with immediate effect at a news conference here today.

Also announcing their resignation at the news conference were Klang PKR chief P. Krishnasamy and Segambut PKR deputy chief S. Maniselvam. All of them will submit their resignation letters to the party on Monday.

Nallakaruppan also said that more Indian members would tender their resignation as they were his loyal followers.

“I’m not going to force them to leave the party, it’s up to them, but if they want to stay then let them suffer,” he said claiming that for the past year he had brought in about 10,000 Indians to join PKR.

Nallakaruppan who joined PKR in August last year, however, denied his decision to quit was prompted by Anwar’s meddling in the party’s election scheduled this Saturday.

“Yes, he asked me to withdraw from the election to pave way for his blue-eyed boy Azmin Ali, despite the fact that I’ve received the second highest nominations in the contest for vice-presidents. But I withdrew out of respect for him.

“But that’s not the reason I quit. I quit because PKR doesn’t care about the Indians. This was clearly evident in the Lunas by-election and the one in Ijok recently,” he said alleging that Anwar had promised him that an Indian candidate would be fielded in Ijok but changed his mind later.

Asked whether Anwar, who is also PKR adviser, had tried to talk him out of quitting, Nallakaruppan said he was told by some friends that Anwar was trying to contact him.


Recently, he came into the mainstream political spotlight as someone who was said supposedly to be pitted at Ijok on the PKR at the 28 April 2007 by-election upon the demise of Dato’ Sivalingam, However he was stood up against the Malay former corporate giant Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, who eventually lost to an unknown teacher, K. Parthiban (BN).

The amount and magnitude of the Ijok campaign were used by many party to described Anwar’s and PKR’s worsened performance (compared to the March 2004 General Election’s results) as “Anwar’s Waterloo”. Anwar, on the otherhand, blamed it on ‘phantom voters’, still.

Anwar’s accomplice

This is the same S. Nallakaruppan mentioned where SAC II Musa Hassan, then Assitant Director of CID (now Tan Sri Musa Hassan, Inspector General of Police), Royal Malaysian Police produced an affidavit in the trial of Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim for abusing his power as the Deputy Prime Minister:

CID Assistant Director SAC II Musa Hassan, in his affidavit affirmed in Kuala Lumpur on 2nd September 1998 at 4 p.m. made the following allegations:

“9. In conducting the investigations, apart from obtaining the testimony of witnesses, documents, corroborative testimony and forensic testimony, seven witnesses have also made written statements to the police which are as follows:

“9.1 A male witness has stated that he was sodomised by Datuk Seri Anwar 15 times. The homosexual activity was conducted at several locations including an apartment in Tivoli Villa in Bangsar. This apartment is owned by a company of which Nallakaruppan is one of the directors who has access to the said apartment.

“9.2 A witness has made a statement that the witness suspected that the witness’s in-law had a sexual relationship with Datuk Seri Anwar and it took place at the Tivoli Villa apartment.

“9.3 The former personal driver of Nallakaruppan in his statement said that he had brought Datuk Seri Anwar with Nallakaruppan to a particular location for illicit sex. He had been assigned by Nallakaruppan to pick up women of Chinese, Mexican, Eurasian and other descent for illicit sex. Once, after returning from the Tivoli Villa apartment, this witness drove the car for Datuk Seri Anwar, Nallakaruppan and a woman, and that Datuk Seri Anwar had on a wig.

“9.4 A witness involved in supplying women for the purpose of prostitution stated that Nallakaruppan had contacted him to procure illegal sexual services. This witness stated that he had also supplied such women to Nallakaruppan on several occassons.

“9.5 A female witness stated that Nallakaruppan had introduced her to Datuk Seri Anwar while in the car. The three of them subsequently went to the Tivoli Villa apartment. In a room in the said apartment the witness stated that she was molested and she also stated that Datuk Seri Anwar kept pleading with her to have a sexual relationship but she refused. She said that Nallakaruppan was in the apartment at the time.

“9.6 Another female witness stated that she had been brought by Nallakarupan to a bungalow and introduced to Datuk Seri Anwar. This witness stated that she was asked to enter a room, which Datuk Seri Anwar subsequently entered and proceeded to kiss her, and hug her while pinning her down. She said she resisted having sex with him by bluffing that she was menstruating.

“9.7 Another female witness who worked at the company where Nallakaruppan was a director, stated that she was taken to the Tivoli Villa apartment by Nallakaruppan in a car driven by Nallakaruppan himself. At the apartment, she was surprised to meet Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim there. They had sex. After having had sex with Datuk Seri Anwar, the witness stated that they discussed the political affairs of the country. Nallakaruppan gave the witness RM350.

“9.8 The police also have evidence that Nallakaruppan had given RM60mil cash to Datuk Seri Anwar during the general elections in 1995.

“9.9 There is also evidence that that Nallakaruppan had transferred his activities to an apartment in Impiana Court, Ampang, after the initial investigations in relation to the poison pen letter on the Datuk Seri Anwar Sex Scandal in August 1997. This apartment is owned by a company, listed on the Main Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange, where he is one of the directors. These illegal sexual activities continued although police investigations had commenced.


Apparently, Nallakaruppan was an accomplice in Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy case. He had been Anwar’s tennis partner and provided all sort of ‘entertainment’ for Anwar Ibrahim, locally and abroad, when he was a Director with Magnum. So when Nallakaruppan claimed he had been a friend to Anwar for years, it was a strong case why he stood by Anwar till this point. Now, it is over.


PKR was an evolution from the street mob ‘Reformasi’ movement, which was solidified into a political party in 1999 known as Parti Keadilan Rakyat or KeAdilan. In 2003, it merged with the more experienced but deadish Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) to evolve into Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR). Even though the majority prefer not to have the merger but because Anwar wanted it and passed the message from Sungai Buloh Prison, they pushed for the merger anyway. There on, most of the PRM mainstays were sidelined and most of them faded away.

“Indian Mutiny” within PKR

This resignation clearly shows PKR is never a multiracial party as it vehemently claimed to be. This is not the first time Indians have had major issues with the top management of the party. Gopalakrishnan and Dr. Xavier were names in these KeAdilan skirmishes that involved the Indians within the party. Actually, sources from within the problem the party have been having this problem since 1999. What happened today was a development that actually brewed for a while. “Indian Mutiny within PKR”, somebody said today.

Even amongst the Indians within PKR, they have had problems amongst themselves because of the diversity within the Indian ethnicity itself. Dr. Xavier Jayakumar’s case is an example of how Indians within PKR had a problem with their ethnic grouping. So, this was an inherent problem waiting to escalate. Its what the Malays say it as “retak menunggu belah“.


Anwarism = Favourtism + Nepotism

Infact, PKR is about Anwar Ibrahim and he decides who-should-be-where-doing-what. This episode where Nallakaruppan was asked to withdraw his intention to run for the Vice President in favour of Azmin Ali said it all. The management of PKR is now about Anwar Ibrahim, Wan Azizah, his wife, Azmin Ali, the longtime trusted aide, Nurul Izzah Anwar, his dotting darling daughter and arrogantly incorrigible longtime buddy, Dato’ Kamarul Bahrin Abbas.

Now, we will see Anwar Ibrahim contesting as President although the law says otherwise as his interregnum period from serving a conviction is not over yet. However, with 120 nominations, he is still going for it. Never the less, Wan Azizah is running too. This is a safety net if and when his election into office is nullified by the Registrar of Society (ROS).

Nepotism and favourtism, his strongest supporter and stooge in UMNO Youth barked against Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s Presidency in the June 1998 UMNO Annual Assembly? How different is it now in PKR?

The truth will prevail. Anwar was convicted for abuse of power as the Deputy Prime Minister in 1999. Now it clearly shows Anwar’s ability and propensity to do so. all along. It seemed, bit by bit, the true colours of Anwar is clearly illustrated.

PKR is better of called Parti Anwar because it clearly what it is.



This exodus of leaders leaving PKR is nothing new. Previously, strong personalities like Dr. Chandra Muzaffar, Dr. Jomo K. Sundram, Dato’ Marina Yusuf, Nell Onn, Ruslan Kassim, Lokman Noor Adam and Zainur Zakaria, his own defense lawyer, left him and this direction less futile and in vain struggle. Many pioneers of the ‘Reformasi’ movement and forming KeAdilan also left.

Anwar’s unlawful move

Will he make a mockery of the law to cry foul again, when ROS reprimand him or the party for going against the law? Then there will be a new song to sing and his current and previous tunes are no longer the ‘hype’ sounds to the public ear.

Channel News Asia,, has the story about ROS not allowing Anwar to contest:

Malaysia bars Anwar from standing for party presidency

Posted: 26 May 2007 0104 hrs

KUALA LUMPUR : A Malaysian government agency Friday rejected an attempt by ex-deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim to run for president of the opposition party he advises, a move quickly condemned by his supporters.

Anwar was expected to win an election on Saturday to lead Keadilan, or the People’s Justice Party, despite being legally prohibited from standing for public office or holding a position with a political party until April 2008 because of a corruption conviction.

Anwar had applied to the Registrar of Societies to sidestep the ban, but the government department on Friday rejected his application.

“Anwar Ibrahim … received a notice from the Registrar of Societies (ROS) this afternoon, rejecting his application to contest,” Keadilan’s information chief Tian Chua said in a statement.

“Anwar has since filed an appeal to the home minister,” said Chua, adding the minister had the right to grant a waiver.

The party, which has been looking to Anwar’s star power to raise its profile ahead of an expected early general election, condemned the decision and said Anwar would still contest the party poll.

“Keadilan strongly condemns … the move by ROS as a deliberate ploy to prevent the re-emergence of Anwar Ibrahim into active political leadership,” said Chua.

“He has expressed his intention to go ahead with the elections tomorrow,” he said.

Anwar earlier told AFP in an interview he could still be effective in the party, now headed by his wife Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, even if barred by the ROS.

“I can still work closely to bolster the party with Wan Azizah,” he said.

Wan Azizah said the party would concentrate its efforts on having Anwar “take over the helm of the party.”

“We hope that our appeal will be successful because we would like Anwar to have his right to contest as the president, as the nominations have been overwhelming for him,” Wan Azizah told AFP.

“I do see it as an attempt to prevent him from exercising that right,” she said.

Chua said he expected it could be “weeks or even months” before a decision was made on the appeal, and that Anwar and the party were prepared for any penalty for following through with the election.

“We are prepared to face the consequences,” Chua told AFP.

“We expect after Anwar becomes president there will be even more pressure and oppression from the authorities,” he said.

Anwar had been the heir-apparent to former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad until 1998, when he was sacked after sodomy and corruption charges that landed him in jail for six years.

The sodomy charges were overturned in 2004 and Anwar was set free, paving the way for his return to Malaysia’s political landscape.
