Over the past month, MIC Youth’s J Dhinagaran said Pakatan had featured Ambiga as its Indian face to woo Indians to take part in the July 9 rally and to support the opposition in the next polls.
“Pakatan’s main target are emerging cyber-savvy Indian youths,” he told reporters today after filing a police report against the Bersih rally.
He alleged that Pakatan leaders, especially Anwar Ibrahim, had portrayed Ambiga as a “dynamic, gutsy and uncompromising Indian leader representing the people’s interests.”
Dhinagaran accused Ambiga, the former Bar Council president, of using the rally to promote herself to secure a seat to contest in the next polls under a Pakatan ticket.
He added that Pakatan planned to use the rally to galvanise the Malaysian electorate against Barisan Nasional and promote Ambiga as the next “great Indian hope with a multi-racial outlook.”
“It’s actually a win-win situation for Ambiga and Pakatan. In the end, the loser will be the Indian community,” he said.
He chided Ambiga for never having spoken out on any Indian issue and had always wore the multi-racial hat to promote herself as an Indian mandore within the opposition rank.
For Anwar, he said, Ambiga was a perfect candidate due to her legal and NGO backgrounds.
Whether the Bersih rally takes place or not, Dhinagaran said he was sure of Pakatan parading Ambiga as its top Indian leader.
“Pakatan non-Indian leaders will not want a strong Indian grassroots leader among their equals. Ambiga standing as an elitist without grassroots background will suit the bill for Pakatan.
“It’s just a dirty tactic by Anwar and company to deceive the working class Indians,” he told FMT.Read more.
