Ex-PKR man Nalla forms new Indian party

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk K.S. Nallakaruppan, who left Parti Keadilan Rakyat a dejected man, has formed a new political party after a four-month hiatus.

The Malaysian Indian United Party (MIUP) aims to uplift the Indian community especially at the grassroots level by providing better living and health standards, helping youngsters and fighting corruption, among others, he said.

Nalla, as he is fondly known, quit PKR on May 25 following a rift with de facto leader and one-time best friend Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

“I joined PKR in August last year hoping to serve for the betterment of the Indian community but realised it was not the right platform,” he said Saturday at a press conference to announce the new party.

We don’t need another party whose goals are centred on one race – that just helps promote racism. Was there no way to help the Indian community as part of KeADILan? For tolerance and unity to grow among our people we need to put an end to all the racial parties – UMNO, MCA, MIC and now MIUP.
