Tan Tuan Tat dares DAP disciplinary committee head Tan Kok Wai to prove him wrong instead.
The party’s disciplinary committee chairman Tan Kok Wai had hauled up Tuan Tat over the allegation that the latter created 149 phantom members to form three branches in Sepang.
Speaking at a press conference this morning, Tuan Tat demanded proof.
“You alleged that I forged 149 memberships using their MyKads collected from an event without their knowledge. Where was the event held? What event is it? When was it held? Prove it to me.
“I did not do any events to open up branches,” he said, adding that the 149 people had requested him to assist them in delivering their membership application forms.
Six of the 149 were present at the press conference.
One of them, Mahful Wahid, a former PKR Sepang member represented the six who wanted to join DAP.
“I collected the MyKads along with membership fees and passed it to Tuan Tat so why is DAP accusing him of creating phantom members?” he asked.
“I left PKR because they favoured some people and it turns out to be thesame here as well,” he added.
All 149 applications were rejected by DAP.
“Now I am glad that they rejected my application because my conscience would be at odds had they accepted me as a party member,” said Mahful.
He also criticised Pakatan Rakyat as he lacked confidence in their leadership.
“Pakatan speaks nonsense. I would not support them since they only promise and yet do not keep their word,” he added.
In a related development, Tuan Tat said he was also offended with the manner DAP removed its former vice-chairman Tunku Aziz Tunku Ibrahim.
Referring to a Star report entitled “Did you say it again?” dated May 5 this year, Tuan Tat said Kok Wai was impolite.
He said that his 80-year-year old mother was forced to experience the same degree of impoliteness.
“Last week, a lady claiming to be from the DAP headquarters forced my mother to sign a letter. My mother an illiterate 80-year-old woman initially declined.
“The lady confused and forced my mother to sign the letter because the lady was demanding and harsh and yet my mother was not given a copy of the letter,” said Tuan Tat.
