DAP national vice chairperson M Kulasegaran has denounced as "scurrilous" an attack on party secretary general Lim Guan Eng's motives in wanting to visit jailed and ailing Hindraf leader P Uthayakumar.

Specifically, the MP for Ipoh Barat was referring to an SMS, being circulated in advance of the re-election by the DAP of its central executive committee on September 29, which purports to mock Guan Eng's motives.
