GEORGE TOWN: A group held a protest urging Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy to step down over issues involving the Indian community.

Led by M.V. Mathiyalagan Veeriah, they held up banners on the ground floor of Komtar yesterday, with the message: “Ramasamy not fit to make comments about Thaipusam.

Is it fair to tear down the historic temple at Byram estate and turn it to a landfill?”

The group was made up of representatives from five non-profit organisations and temple representatives in Seberang Prai.

Earlier, Mathiyalagan handed over a two-page memorandum to Dr Ramasamy’s special officer V. Elemperu on the issues.

The group also condemned Lim’s credibility as Chief Minister as he was facing two corruption charges.

At a press conference in Komtar later, Dr Ramasamy urged the group to show proof of its claims.
