S Vell Paari disagrees with fellow MIC leader R Ramanan's call for Lim Guan Eng and his wife to undergo a lie detector test.
PETALING JAYA: Malaysians are growing tired of sex-related allegations and are more interested in seeing their leaders taking the nation forward, said MIC Central Working Committee member S Vell Paari.
He was responding to a fellow MIC leader’s call for Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, his wife Betty Chew and Lim’s former employee Ng Phaik Kheng to subject themselves to a lie detector test on the controversy surrounding them.
Bernama online reported MIC Welfare and Social Bureau deputy chairman R Ramanan calling for the trio to undergo a lie detector test as it would clear Lim’ name on claims that the chief minister had an affair with Ng.
“The three of them should undergo a lie detector test to prove to the people that no scandal had occurred between Lim and Ng,” he said.
He warned that the move would only stir the hornet’s nest.
“If you call for Lim and his family to go through a lie detector test, Pakatan Rakyat leaders can ask the same of Barisan Nasional leaders as various allegations are levelled upon us as well,” he said.
He also blamed both BN and Pakatan Rakyat for indulging in personal attacks just to score political points with the public.
“I personally dislike hate politics and personal attacks.
“We should convince the voters on how we plan to develop the country and Pakatan should do the same. Let the voters decide what they want,” he said.
