KUALA LUMPUR - DAP chairman Lim Guan Eng has given Penang Pas Dewan Muslimat (the women’s wing) deputy chief Dr Siti Mastura Muhammad until this Thursday to provide proof of her allegations against DAP leadership.

Lim said her allegations that DAP leaders are blood relations of former Communist Party of Malaya leader Chin Peng and former Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew were unfounded and done to undermine the party leadership and incite racial sentiment.

He said DAP will take necessary action against her if she fails to provide evidence to substantiate the accusations.

"We feel ill at ease with these extreme allegations...this should not happen in a country with a diverse society where we should fight for the welfare of all, regardless of race and background.

"Such actions are excessive and extreme, I believe it reflects race-based politics, extremism and slander played by PAS leaders,” he said in a press conference at the Parliament building, today.

Mastura made the allegations against DAP leaders such as Anthony Loke, Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng, Nga Kor Ming, Teresa Kok and Ngeh Koo Ham when speaking at the Pas women machinery and Ameerah P040 Kemaman rally recently.

Meanwhile, DAP National Publicity Secretary Teo Nie Ching in a statement denied the accusations and reminded leaders of the opposition bloc against stirring up racial sentiments.

"The opposing side uses this rhetoric continuously to tarnish the image of DAP leaders. Ironically when DAP and PAS joined forces under the Pakatan Harapan coalition in the past, such issues were never raised.
