Nalla vs Anwar November 19, 2008Posted by malaysianstory in Uncategorized.
He has a different face for an urban audience and another for the rural folk.
“I went to jail for a year for him. I suffered for him and faced the death sentence for him. I suffered business losses for him and look at how I was treated,” said Nalla, who was then the Magnum Corporation Bhd public affairs director.
Nalla also warned Malaysian Indians not to be fooled into thinking Anwar was fighting for them.
“He did not fight for the community while in government and he is not going to do so now,” Nalla said.
He added that many others had become disillusioned with Anwar and had left the PKR, including PKR’s secretary-general Anuar Tahir, supreme council member Saari Sungib, deputy president Abdul Rahman Osman and Youth head Ezam Mohd Nor.
Nalla urged the Indian community not to be taken in by Anwar’s perceived support for the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) and its five detained leaders.
“He is merely using the issue to gain support from the Indian community,” he said.
Nalla also said Dr Mahathir had judged Anwar correctly.
“What Dr Mahathir said about Anwar is true. “Although I had to suffer on his (Dr Mahathir) instruction but at least he can now know that what he said about Anwar is true,” said Nallakarupan.
His advice to Malaysians: “Don’t make him prime minister. He will destroy the country.
“I am doing this for the nation and the younger generation, not for one race but everyone.”
Another Anwar’s close friend and former PKR deputy president Prof Dr Chandra Muzaffar broke a seven-year silence to warn that “if Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim becomes the prime minister, it will be an unmitigated disaster for Malaysia”.
