Stop Being Such a Sore Loser, PKR

PKR should be graceful enough to accept their Hulu Selangor By-election defeat. BN had lost numerous previous by-elections and accepted them gracefully. For example, we lost Manik Urai by-election by a very narrow margin and yet accepted the result without complaining. Even in Hulu Selangor, when BN lost in the 2008 GE by a mere 198 votes, we accepted the people's verdict. Why is it that PKR can never accept the people's verdict gracefully? It has become a trend amongst PKR leaders to hurl all sorts of accusations when they lose, by-elections or otherwise.

By saying that the people of Hulu Selangor have been 'bought over', PKR is casting aspersions on the integrity and intelligence of the voters in Hulu Selangor. It also shows their deep seated disrespect on the choice of the people.

I take this opportunity to thank, on behalf of MIC, all component parties for their close co-operation and strong support in ensuring the victory of YB P.Kamalanathan. I also thank the thousands of BN Party workers and BN supporters for their tireless effort.

However, I would like to caution that we should not be too carried away with this victory. We should continue working hard as we still have some distance to cover before we regain the pre 2008 level of confidence.

I am confident that we will we will regain lost grounds in the 13th GE if we continue this momentum.
