Nallakarupan`s Confession on Who is Anwar Ibrahim

KUALA LUMPUR, March 6 (Bernama) -- Datuk K.S.Nallakaruppan, a close friend of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for 30 years, today claimed that the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto leader is only interested in pursuing his own interest not the country''s. "He is a man for himself...he has no principles in politics... I have to tell the truth in the interest of the country and the future generations," he said.

Nalla, who is the president of the Malaysian Indian United Party (MIUP), claimed that some of interviews given by Anwar to the foreign media when he was overseas were only meant to spoil the good image of Malaysia. "We don''t need this kind of person as our leader or as our prime minister," said Nalla who was once in the PKR. After the sacking of Anwar, Nalla was charged under the Internal Security Act for unlawful possession of 125 rounds of live Fiocchi 6.35mm ammunition which carries the death penalty.

The charge was later reduced and Nalla was sentenced to 42 months in jail, which was later reduced on appeal to one year. -- MORE ELECTION-NALLA (ANWAR) 2 (LAST) KUALA LUMPUR Nalla said despite his sacrifices for the former deputy Prime Minister, Anwar''s family members never visited his family when he was in jail. Nalla said Anwar was capitalising on the current anger of some segment of the Malaysian Indian community to garner support in this general election. "I would like to urge the Indians to reject him," he said. -- BERNAMA
