There is no Gerakan Batu Kawan Branch, says Mohan

Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia does not have a “Batu Kawan Branch” in Penang and the question of it having 5,000 Indian members does not arise at all, said Penang Gerakan Liaison Committee member A. Mohan.
He said a claim by a party member, Sivaperumal, that he would lead 5,000 Indian members out of the branch this month and join the soon-to-be launched P Uthayakumar’s Human Rights Party (HRP) as reported in online portal MalaysiaKini “is not true and misleading”.
According to MalaysiaKini, Sivaperumal claimed himself as Batu Kawan branch chief.
Mohan, who is also the Barisan Nasional coordinator for Batu Kawan, made this denial during a durian party organised by Gerakan Nibong Tebal Division on Sunday.
Mohan said though Gerakan suffered a major defeat during the 12th General Elections, Indians members in the party are still loyal.
He urged all party members to stay united, face the challenges ahead and fight for the interest of the people.
