I am Dr. Shan Narayanan from Ipoh, Perak. I have been following the Kampung Buah Pala Issue closely. Many of the villagers have been displaced and are homeless. Obviously the Penang Government especially DAP will not take responsibility. This has not surprised me as over time it is becoming very clear that DAP is not multiracial. DAP creates a perception that it is multiracial. In politics Perception is very important.
In Malaysia Today, Naragan. N on 24/9/09 has invited you for a debate:( I have cut and paste the invite here)
Invite to YB Lim Guan Eng for a debate on the Kampung Buah Pala Issue :
By Naragan N.
I write this with regards to your several invites to the Gerakan Party Politicians for a live debate on the Kampung Buah Pala issue. There is now a suggestion from the public that maybe you should debate this issue with other groups as well.
I would like to humbly invite you to a televised debate on the Kampung Buah Pala issue at any time on any of the Malaysian TV channels. I will represent the Villagers and a section of Malaysian society's point of view in the debate.
The debate will be in the English Language and can take a format we will establish once you accept this invitation.
If you will accept this invitation for the debate, it will be a great day for democracy in Malaysia. Thank You and I really look forward to your response.

I have not seen any response from you. Are you afraid to address the issue? If you have fully supported the Kampung Buah Pala folks, you have nothing to fear. If the perception that DAP has created that the Kampung Buah Pala Folks are greedy is true you should have nothing to fear. However, if the developers are you friends than you certainly need to fear an open debate.
The Indian Community is watching you and the DAP. We are watching to see if you are brave to accept the challenge. I get the feeling that DAP still believes they have the undivided support of the Indian Community? Barisan lost touch with the ground after 50years but DAP has lost touch in just over 1 year.
YB be a brave man and accept the challenge. The Community wants to know if you actually represent all races.
