Anwar, Gobala tiff continues in tweet-fight

Anwar tweets about someone with 'low intelligence level' while Gobalakrishnan hits out at the former for failing as Selangor economic adviser.
SHAH ALAM: PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim said he had long expected that Padang Serai MP N Gobalakrishnan would leave the party.
“He has left, it’s all right. Let us continue,” he said when asked to comment on Gobalakrishan’s resignation from the party and relinquishing all posts that he was holding in the PKR yesterday.
He said this after attending a function, here today.
He also said that Gobalakrishnan had previously not responded to a show-cause letter sent to him by the party last month for criticising the top party leadership.
Anwar said that he and the party had not received any official letter from Gobalakrishnan on his resignation, and party secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail had asked Gobalakrishnan to give clarification because he had merely announced his decision on the twitter yesterday.
He also said that Gobalakrishnan had not informed him of his intention and the last time the PKR adviser met him was in Parliament.
Low intelligence level
Anwar also used micro-blogging site Twitter to lash out at Gobalakrishnan, whom he labelled as “bebalisme” without making any direct reference to the former PKR man.
He described the term as someone with “low intelligence level, does not know how to have a discourse, tends to spread lies and shows off his stupidity”.
Anwar’s tweet sparked a quick rebuke from Gobalakrishnan who lashed out at the former for repeating lies to the public.
He also claimed that Anwar had under-performed as the Selangor economic adviser with the state being the most corrupt in the country.
“Anwar as economic adviser corruption highest in Sgor. Will lose state if reform within not done. Visit councillors every district. AI (Anwar Ibrahim) even control sand,” he tweeted.
Gobalakrishnan’s tweets prompted others to jump in to ask Anwar to respond, to which the party supremo claimed that Gobalakrishnan’s attacks were due to him being overlooked for a position in the party.
Anwar claimed that Gobalakrishnan was upset that N Surendran was appointed as a PKR vice-president.
Nothing to do with party post
When contacted, Gobalakrishnan said his criticism against the party was not due to being overlooked for the vice-president’s post.
“Did I ever lobby to Anwar for the position? You can ask Anwar,” he said.
He added that it was not wrong for Anwar to appoint “Surendran – a professional” but he claimed that the latter was not even a party member.

think gobala has left for the good of PKR and Pakatan. he can go on shouting but its not going to help him too and am sure he will never get to an MP again. so i guess its better for him to let go the MP's seat now and lets the voters decide once and for all who they want to be their representative. so Gopala its enough og you being a road fighter. guess resign as an PM and let the job to the voters to decide.

By the looks of it, Gobala is going to bring bala to Anwar. I wonder if the "bebalisme" comment is going to come back and haunt him... :P

PM in waiting? I dont think so 
I used to admire your you've lost it 
I used to admire you diplomatic skill.... now you've lost it 
I used to admire your fighting spirit..... now you've lost it 
Mr Anwar. this is one of the founding members of Keadilan who sacrificed so much for the course - reform; 
beaten up at almost all demonstrations; many times kicked into jails; fought for your release from Sg Buloh: 
And all you could respond is on twitter with degrading remarks, so unbecoming of a PM in waiting!! 
En Anwar, awak ni kena pukau Azmin Ali ke?? What is happening to you?? 
You should instead find the source of these endless problems in PKR be it in Johor, Sabah, Selangor. 
All you are doing is blaming others!!! Find solutions and get to the root of all PKR's problems. Even I an ordinary member can point right to the SOURCE of all PKR's problems....AZMIN ALI is the cause and the source of PKR's problems.
