IPF not joining Pakatan

The Indian Progressive Front (IPF) has no intention of joining Pakatan Rakyat, its acting president Puan Sri Jayashree Pandithan said.
She said that IPF would always be loyal to Barisan Nasional and the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
"We will continue to support him as the leader of the nation and the leader of the ruling Barisan," she said in her maiden press conference at the IPF headquarters in Seri Kembangan.
She took over the presidency of the 20-year-old party early this year from her ailing husband Tan Sri M.G. Pandithan who passed away on May 29.
Jayashree said IPF would continue to perform the duties and responsibilities to the Indian community in the country.
"I have made visits to several states and the members are still intact with the leadership and have pledged their loyalty and support to the leadership. I am determined to focus on the eradication of poverty amongst Indians and creating an educated society besides focusing on the welfare and health issues of the poor," she said.
To a question, she said that IPF still maintains the objective of wanting to be a member of the Barisan, a vision of the late founding president Pandithan.
"I believe MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu would not have any objections to our request to be admitted into the ruling coalition," she said.
Jayashree said that she had already sought a meeting with the Prime Minister but had not received an appointment yet.
She said that the party had filed a writ of summons on July 22 against six former members of IPF for deceiving and confusing the people by using the party's name, flag, letterhead and registration number.
"These members claim to be leaders of IPF Bersatu but the truth is that all their activities had been carried out in the name of IPF Malaysia. They are not a registered party or a society and they are functioning under our name, claiming to be our promoters," she said.
Jayashree said their actions were a serious crime involving theft of the party's name and symbols.
IPF legal adviser S. Selvam said the writ, which was served on the six on Monday, had sought a declaration that they were illegal and an injunction to prevent them from using the IPF name, symbol, letterhead and registration number and RM1mil in damages.
