Medical doctor turned politician, as many other veteran in those days.
He speaks like a typical Chinese uncle, good English and Chinese, but baku Malay. And when he speaks, you can see that his saliva is splashing out all over.
He helmed Gerakan for many years, and he was a senior cabinet leader right up until his retirement.
No matter which side of political leanings you are, I think he deserved some credits for what he has done for the country.
Gerakan is currently seen as irrelevant and is in its most vulnerable period. Two chinese majority party in one coalition is not workable.
It used to be okay, when MCA is weaker ever, DAP is not relevant, and Gerakan has a state to govern.
Anyway, RIP Dr Lim Keng Yaik.
