Dan van Holst Pellekaan MP, the Minister for Energy and Mining and Member for Stuart, which includes Port Augusta, has condemned a racist tirade about a candidate for the Port Augusta Council posted on Facebook.
“Mr Sunny Singh is a well known, liked and respected member of the Port Augusta community and does not deserve this treatment or offensive racist stereotyping.
“I know Sunny, and he and his family are friendly, hard working and significant contributors to our community.
“Sunny Singh is a shining example of exactly the type of migrant we want to welcome into our community, and not offend in this way.
“The offending post should be removed immediately.”
