MCA publicity bureau chairman Chai Kim Sen labelled Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) chairman Mahathir Mohamad as a typical U-turn king and DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang as a man without principle.
Chai, in a statement today said, the former prime minister of 22 years, had been inconsistent not only on Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) but also on Chinese investments and on the deputy prime minister’s (DPM) post.
“Mahathir had once slammed BR1M by saying it was a form of bribery but later changed his statement over the issue.
“In his blog, Mahathir claimed that MCA made the demand for the DPM post in 2009 through its former deputy secretary-general Loke Yuen Yeow but prior to this Mahathir claimed that it was DAP that had demanded the DPM’s post,” Chai said.
Chai pointed out that Mahathir stance and remarks keep changing and, therefore the former premier has lost his credibility.
“Mahathir claimed to be misquoted by the media for implying that DAP is eyeing the DPM post.
“But he was quick to correct his remarks, clarifying that it was actually MCA and not DAP who made the request,” he said.
Chai added that DAP has abandoned its founding principle of its party “Malaysian Malaysia” with Kit Siang once asking if Malaysia could have a non-bumiputra prime minister when Barack Obama was elected first black president of the United States.
“Kit Siang dare not even acknowledge that he had once fought for a DPM post,” he said, pointing out to an interview with a Chinese daily in 2008 where Kit Siang said that future generations of Malaysians should dare to become the prime minister of Malaysia.
“Mahathir and Kit Siang keep changing their statements.
“This not only shows that they have no principles but also made them leaders deprived of quality and only oppose for the sake of opposing,” added Chai.
