Another scandalous Chua video?

It’s racist, say PKR men about the MCA president’s reference to Malay privileges.

PETALING JAYA: MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek revealed his racist side in a recent video uploaded to YouTube, according to PKR’s interpretation of the clip.

“Is he trying to outdo Perkasa or create a Chinese version of Perkasa?” PKR vice-president Tian Chua said in reference to the video, in which Chua says: “If PKR dares to amend the constitution and cancel Malay privileges, I will be the first to raise my hands to vote for PKR.”

The clip was posted recently on MCA’s YouTube channel.

Tian Chua advised Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to ask Chua to retract his statement, saying that it was provocative and an attempt to create racial tension.

“I wouldn’t mind him voting for PKR,” said Tian Chua. “But I want to ask him back: would he himself, and his party, adopt such policy and fight for such a cause?”

Chua should take his cause with Barisan Nasional (BN) instead of asking PKR to fight on his behalf, he added.

He reiterated Pakatan Rakyat’s stand on Bumiputera rights. “We have consistently said that we support the Federal Constitution and the position of the Bumiputera Malays. But at the same time we also support a needs-based affirmative policy, and not race-based, and that’s the difference.

“Is Chua talking about the NEP? That’s all the more reason he should take it up to BN, which implemented it in the first place.”

Tian Chua said many MCA leaders seemed to be ignorant of the Federal Constitution and lacking in solidarity with their BN colleagues.

“There’s something very wrong if you can’t agree on the very spirit of the constitution even though Umno has created this Ketuanan Melayu concept.”

PKR communications chief Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said the public should pressure MCA to ask what Chua meant about cancelling Malay rights.

“He thinks he’s talking in Chinese and nobody understands him,” he said. “MCA is getting more and more desperate and Chua’s statement shows that Najib’s 1Malaysia has totally failed.”
