Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak said DAP’s Lim Kit Siang should stop the game of asking questions which he knows the answers.

Salleh also told Kit Siang to stop pretending to ask questions when he is actually making statements or allegations and learn to accept different views.

“Kit Siang has been posing a series of questions to me. However, while he dresses them up to look like questions, they are actually statements disguised as questions.

“This is the normal tactic of disguising statements as questions leaving the person you are addressing them to very little room to reply,” said Salleh in his latest blog posting.

Salleh questioned if Kit Siang wanted to make a statement or an allegation, why not he just do that.

“Why pretend he is asking questions when he is not really asking questions? He just wants to make allegations.

“However, to avoid being taken to task for making false or misleading allegations, he dresses them up as questions and if cornered he can defend himself by saying he is not alleging but is just asking,” said Salleh.

Salleh noted that many of those ‘questions’ Kit Siang posed had already been replied by other members of the Cabinet and he (Kit Siang) was actually aware of this but still playing the game of pretending he did not know this.

“This is a total waste of time and designed to distract us from more important issues such as who is Pakatan Harapan’s choice of Prime Minister. Kit Siang, Muhyiddin Yassin, Mahathir Mohamad, PKR and PAS do not appear united on this matter.

“Is that what Kit Siang is trying to distract us from? And my question is a genuine question, not a pretend question,” said Salleh.
