This time it is from her hometown in Kanthan Baru new village near Chemor here.
Over 200 new villagers, when met at the market yesterday, showed their displeasure over her resignation from the DAP by criticising and slamming her openly.
New villager Tan Lim Chua called her a traitor and that her betrayal had tarnished the village’s name. “It is certainly sad and heartbreaking,” said the 60-year-old farmer, adding that it would not be easy for the villagers to forgive her.
Hee Yit Foong said she left DAP not because she wanted to take revenge against the party, but because the party didn't want her.
She said she wanted to stay on, but what DAP secretary-general Lim Guang Eng had said made her feel that she was not wanted by the party, and she had no choice but to quit. Lim Guang Eng had said any state assemblyman out of touch for more than 24 hours would be deemed to have resigned from the party.
She said the problems she encountered in the party had been accumulated for a very long time, and she definitely did not quit because she was not given a new official car.
