KUALA LUMPUR: DAP’s goal has always been to stir dissatisfaction among the Chinese in order to gain support, remarked an Umno man.
Speaking in Seremban last night, Umno Information Chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa said when DAP was formed back in 1969, racial tensions erupted.
“The existence of DAP and their political methods have created a tense atmosphere, by provoking fears among the Chinese with so many scare stories,” he was quoted as saying by the New Straits Times.
Speaking about the Chinese community, Annuar said they have been a good partner to Barisan Nasional (BN) and Umno for a long time.
However, he said some had been influenced by the negative sentiments and lies of the DAP.
Bernama reported Annuar as saying that this is the reason in some of them being duped to stay away from BN and Umno.
“Before there was DAP, the multi-racial politics in our country were very harmonious with the MCA, MIC and UMNO working together and getting a mandate from the people.
“But the DAP has fired, instigated and frightened the Chinese into believing all sorts of stories, and some Chinese have been influenced by them,” Annuar was quoted as saying by Bernama.
The Ketereh Member of Parliament meanwhile added that he believed there were still many Chinese who did not believe in DAP. – MO
