Rais Yatim knows very little of what he says
Worse scenario has happened. Whatever happens now will see KEADILAN leaders and members amplifying their conviction on the agenda for reformation and enroute to Putrajaya.
Rais Yatim, like so many others within Umno-BN, has no longer an inkling of what is right and wrong and certainly not a leader in every sense of the word. His words and what he stands for, the perpetuation of gutter politics, can best be forgotten as soon as they are uttered. Rais Yatim has lost his way in acertaining the truth from the untruths. He has been blinded by other worldly considerations to see the truth of what is happening to Anwar Ibrahim, the hope of Malaysia. A lost leader, Rais Yatim, will never be the hope of the nation.
LONDON, Feb 13 — The resignation of yet another Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) stalwart should make leaders rethink the support given to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said.
He said the resignation of Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim, the Member of Parliament for Bayan Baru, showed that PKR had lost the potential to contribute to the DAP-PKR-PAS coalition.
“This piece of news is a shake-up for the politics of PKR and the opposition,” he told reporters at Restoran Jom Makan, a popular Malaysian restaurant here.
Commenting on Zahrain’s resignation from PKR, he said the matter should be addressed by Anwar and that he should stop confusing the people.
“The loss of support for Anwar means that PKR is incapable of running the party and contribute to the opposition.”
Rais said political observers agreed that Zahrain’s resignation was not only worrying for PKR members but also other opposition parties.
“One main reason is that the people can see that the 1Malaysia concept promotes social justice while PKR, PAS and DAP has nothing to offer.”
He described developments in PKR as a bonus for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak whose sincerity via 1Malaysia would bring economic change and look after the people’s welfare.
“PKR leaders should think twice about supporting Anwar who was said ready to takeover the government. It is just a nightmare that will not become a reality.”
Rais said the resignation of Zahrain, the Penang PKR former chief was directly linked to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
“Guan Eng had failed to reduce the difference in opinion leading to the resignation of PKR leaders including a former deputy chief minister,” he added. — Bernama
