Paranjothy stands by his statement

KUALA LUMPUR: Gerakan Youth vice-chief S. Paranjothy will wait for the outcome of the party’s disciplinary committee meeting on a statement he made before deciding on his next course of action.

“I have already made the statement and I stand by it. I will accept whatever decision made by the party,” he said.

He was quoted in the Internet as saying that Indians were treated as fourth-class citizens, a statement that has stirred up some unpleasantness in the community and Barisan Nasional.

He said the Indians took part in the illegal demonstration organised by Hindraf to express their “frustration and anger” because the community was marginalised, oppressed and ignored.

Acting party president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said on Sunday that Paranjothy would face the disciplinary committee and central working committee for making racially sensitive remarks.

Paranjothy said he would attend the disciplinary committee hearing and put forward his views if asked to attend it.

Officials said the disciplinary committee’s decision would be brought to the party’s central working council, which normally endorses the decision.
