KUALA LUMPUR: The DAP is a hypocritical party for willing to cooperate with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to topple the Barisan Nasional (BN) government to satisfy its political agenda.
MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said for decades, DAP veteran leader Lim Kit Siang and other party leaders have condemned, attacked and criticised Dr Mahathir, even calling him by unsavoury names such as dictator, ghost and pharaoh, who destroyed the country’s democracy and judiciary systems as well as involved in various mega scandals.
“Previously Mahathir was condemned by the DAP, however, today DAP not only embraced and supported Tun Mahathir, but wants Mahathir to become prime minister again. This is DAP’s hypocrisy.
“This shows that DAP is a party with no dignity, no principle and insincere,” he said when addressing the MCA 64th Annual General Assembly at Wisma MCA today.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak officiated the annual assembly.
Liow also drew the delegates’ attention to Dr Mahathir’s report card during his 22-year rule, and said Kit Siang had forgotten about the former prime minister’s past actions.
He said among Dr Mahathir’s “legacy” that burdened the people were toll charges, MAS’ huge losses, Perwaja, Forex, lopsided concession agreements and privatisation to cronies as well as nepotism practice.
“In this case, Lim Kit Siang is adopting a leader who has failed and whom he accused of mega scandal, cronyism, nepotism and draconian rule,” he said.
“Today, Lim Kit Siang is old, and he has forgotten all that, so he has made a U-turn. This is DAP, consistently inconsistent,” he said. –Bernama
