If I were the DAP's Kota Alam Shah state assemblyman M. Manoharan, I will not apologise.
What is there to apologise? It's his own personal view.
I mean, what is so sensitive about those tweets that DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng today chastised his party’s Kota Alam Shah state assemblyman M. Manoharan for his “grossly insensitive remarks” about Datuk Lee Chong Wei’s performance during Sunday’s Olympic gold medal badminton final against China’s Lin Dan?
Isn't everyone entitled to his/her opinion and freedom of expression?
Come on YB Manoharan, be steadfast and stand by your opinions without fear or favour. You should not have apologised.
DAP Secretary General "Lim said he agreed with views that sports should be separated from politics". YB Manoharan, if is true what your Chief Minister said, he should be giving Mariam Mokhtar a dressing down for her politically smacked attack on Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and Puan Sri Norainee who were there to represent all Malaysians in support of Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
YB Manoharan was only playing with puns when he tweeted "LIN DAN wins. He played better than Lee Chong AWAY" and I thought that was clever. When he tweeted “Malaysia will win its first GOLD Medal in Olympics after Pakatan takes over Putrajaya", it should have been well received by his Pakatan Rakyat friends and yet was reprimanded.
The Penang Chief Minister condemns his own DAP party member and an elected representative when he should be supportive of YB Manoharan who is being open in his tweets. When PAS and Pakatan Rakyat MP Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin tweeted about the Sultan of Johore which was more sensitive and disrespectful, the DAP Secretary General did not utter a word.
Clearly YB Manoharan has been treated very unfairly by his own party leader.
I wish there are more people like DAP YB Manoharan. I salute him for being honest. Too bad he had to apologise.
The opposition are privately thanking their lucky stars Datuk Lee lost.
