Well, he got rid of himself anyway. Buntong assemblyman A.Sivasubramaniam has quit DAP, thus leaving the DAP-PKR-PAS coalition government in Perak with 30 seats in the State. In a letter to DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng dated March 31, Sivasubramaniam said he had lost confidence in the Perak DAP as it failed to fulfill its promise to appoint two Indian state executive council members. He added the decision was a "big slap" in the face of Perak Indians and tantamount to deceiving the community. "My victory in Buntong was a mandate given by the Indian community in the area, and therefore I cannot accept the decision made by the Perak DAP," he added.

This racist of a politician thinks that all his votes came from the Indian community and thus, he is only answerable to the Indian community. He feels that he needs to champion the Indian cause. Let me just remind him of what he had said prior to the elections:-
Sivasubramaniam, however, is quick to point out areas where Buntong could see better improvement. Among them are the long-time squatter woes, the aging lifts of the city council’s Sungai Pari flats and the state of the Buntong market. (source)
He obviously did not mention in his election promise that he will only seek improvements for the Indians. Did he not realise that Buntong only has 46.2% voters of the Indian race? He failed to comprehend that he was also voted in by Malaysians of other races. He omitted to realise that he has now given a "bigger slap" to those who voted for him and DAP (and to a greater extent, the DAP-PKR-PAS cooperation) by now unilaterally resigning from his post and responsibility by using a flimsy excuse that DAP Perak has failed to fulfil its promise of appointing 2 Indian state executive council members.

Was he so presumptious to think that prior to the elections, DAP (and its allies) would secure so many seats as to win the State by a simple majority? Not only that, did DAP Perak gaze into the crystal ball as to predict that DAP would win handsomely and have more than 1 Indian state assemblymen elected and thus, provided a simple majority is secured, there would be 2 Indian state executive council members appointed?

Don't try to deceive the public into your kind of reasoning for your resignation. You have lost your credibility with that statement of yours. People have started calling you all kinds of names. I say good riddance to you from the DAP-PKR-PAS coalition. You do not deserve a place or a leadership role with your racist slant. You do not realise from the sentiments shown in the General Elections that the future of Malaysian politics lie in a Malaysian Malaysia with justice, fairness and equality to all. Go ahead and be a champion for the Indian community. You have already lost future votes and support from Malaysians who have moved on from race-based politics.

You know, I find it really funny with some people.

MIC is criticizing some States for not appointing MORE Indian exco members.

Women's groups are demanding for MORE women to be elected exco members.

What next?

The disabled group start asking for more disabled reps in local councils?

The Punjabis, the Eurasians, the vegetarians, the animal-rights group, the single mothers group, etc all wanna jump in the bandwagon too??

See how misguided it can get?
