Chua Soi Lek who resigned from his government and party posts after admitting that he was the guy in a sex DVD, believes that he was done in by his political foes.
He was Health Minister, MCA vice-president and Labis Member of Parliament.
Chua believes that "a lot" of people became suspicious of what they saw as his over-the-top commitment to his ministerial duties.
He told an unscheduled media conference at the Health Ministry where he was packing up his personal belongings, that his "biggest mistake ever since coming to KL is to fulfil my duties as the Health Minister and as MCA vice-president".
He said his visits to health facilites, including hospitals across the country and meeting with MCA grassroots members gave rise to speculations that he had a political agenda, making him a target for people to bring him down politically.
Chua believes that "a lot of people" were very suspicious of his movements, "accusing" him of being ambitious.
This also gave rise to speculations in the Press that he was mounting a challenge against the MCA top leadership.
"The press helped to kill me, to be honest...so the truth is that the pen is mightier than the sword," he said.
Who are his political foes?
"People who are suspicious of me are the people who will gain from being suspicious of me.
He said the video-taping of his tryst in the hotel room with his "personal friend" was not due to business rivalry because he is not a businessman.
"It has nothing to do with business because I am not involved in business...it has nothing to do with money because nobody has asked me for money...so the rest I leave it to the people.
"Who are my enemies, I really don't know. But I am a politician and politicians will have enemies and supporters, this nobody can deny.
"But as I have already said I am not going to pursue this (taping and circulation of the DVD) because it will never end. I don't even know who did it."
