Facebook user Rethinam Sabapathy posted in his Facebook a picture of Murali’s rally invitation poster and took the PAP’s candidate for Bukit Batok to task for sinicizing himself just to win the vote of Singaporean Chinese.
He said: “Now who is playing the race card? Mr. Murali changes his name to Ah Mu sounding Chinese. He is taking the intelligence of voters for granted. One look, anyone can tell he his a Apunehneh, even if he shaves his moustache, arms and legs.”
Siv Raj Winston Singaravelloo said, “So who is playing the race card???? Ah Mu…”
T G Nathan commenting on Siv Raj’s post asked “did he really changed his name to AH MU?”

Madi Nathan said, “(Might) as well this idiot changes his name to ‘Ah MU’ or better still label himself ‘ah pu neh neh’ so that the chinese voters can recognize him… Sick to the core with this kind of mentality…”Follow us on Social Media
