Correction : It was Kulai Head of Operations, not Johor - sorry.
A little birdie gave me a tinkle just now about a press conference that was called by YB Ong Kow Meng, the Senai DAP rep. I was told only the Chinese press was invited (tsk, tsk YB Ong .. you think NST, BH and Utusan won't carry your story ke?) to this event. And the YB wasn't alone - there were sixteen DAP branch heads with him at the press conference to lend weight on what YB Ong wanted to announce.
Impressed, I asked the friend, what was that all about?
According to my friend, Ong was pretty scathing about Dr Boo Cheng Hou, head of DAP Johor. He indicated that Dr Boo practices cronyism, nepotism and is responsible for breaking up the Pact with PKR in Johor by attacking Datuk Chua Jui Meng. In essence, Ong is telling everyone that Dr Boo is bad medicine for Pakatan in Johor.
So what was the real story behind this one then, I asked?
Well apparently, not so long ago, Boo appointed someone, whom Ong and his group consider as an outsider as DAP
And I thought only Umno have this problem.
As for the big pronouncements that the revered Father of Tokong will be contesting in Gelang Patah as reported here, I was told that the old man, who is in Muar today, said that he had not decided on where he would be contesting. Hehehe .. what we are sure of at this point is that he will definitely be contesting somewhere ...
