PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Ti Lian Ker (pic) has accused DAP of making U-turns and asked if the party follows socialist or capitalist ideologies in drafting its policies.
Ti, who is MCA publicity spokesman, said that DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang had said that it is DAP's policies that win it the people's support.
"However, one starts to wonder what DAP's policies really are, after it has made numerous U-turns," Ti said in a statement Friday.
He said that Penang's DAP government is "capitalist friendly", and that its claim to being a socialist party is a fallacy.
"In Penang, it has focused on luxury housing at the expense of the poor and ordinary rakyat," Ti alleged
He also claimed that Lim had "systematically removed" and ousted all the party's dissidents and leaders who did not support him.
"DAP is more of a 'Dictatorial Action Party' than a democratic one, and does not tolerate any dissent or differences of opinions from within," he said.
Ti said that in Selangor, DAP and PAS continue to govern together despite the DAP's assurances that it is no longer with PAS.
He also noted that DAP had made a U-turn concerning Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad by naming him the Opposition's Prime Minister candidate when it had previously promised to put the former premier in jail if the Opposition won the 13th general election in 2013.
Ti said that DAP formally stands for "Democratic Action Party", but added it has failed to elect Malays into its Central Working Committee.
"In practising the spirit of democracy, Malays being the majority in this country should be rightfully voted into its highest decision making authority, but DAP has clearly failed to do this," he said.
"The people are now perplexed and confused as to what DAP's real policies are: socialism or capitalism," questioned Ti.
