What I Think

Karpal Singh – politician, lawyer and friend to many – took his final journey today, standing by his principles and ideals in a lifetime of service to Malaysians.

It is now our task to walk along the road that leads to justice and equality for all Malaysians. Let's not make the Karpal Singh Drive just a road in Penang but our motivation for a better Malaysia.
