It was extremely sad to see extremely courageous Mr.Sivakumar being carried out in the chair. Soon he will be sitting in the same chair, which belongs to him, and the people.

Make sure this time around don't vote for candidate yang takde pendirian.

After winning election, jadi independent atau keluar parti.

By right this donkey should become independent right from the nomination day, complete with their own banner.......... A DONKEY

Don't take advantage of people's vote
