BN politicians hail Tunku Aziz’s exit from party
KUALA LUMPUR: Barisan Nasional politicians have hailed Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim‘s decision to quit DAP.
“What he said truly reflects the attitude of DAP leaders who have their own agenda. I am not surprised if DAP and other opposition parties blame Umno for the resignation.
“That is their script,” he said, adding that they would continue to tarnish the Government and Umno.
Hishammuddin said he was confident that the people were mature and would be able to evaluate the DAP’s capabilities for themselves.
Another Umno vice-president, Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, said Tunku Aziz’s decision to quit DAP proved that it was not a democratic party.
“It is also an indication that the Opposition is not in one voice,” he said.
Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said it was the most honourable thing to do.
“He finally realised that DAP doesn’t walk the talk in upholding democratic rights, justice and equality for everyone.
“Such an experience will strengthen his unwavering principle of serving the country wholeheartedly,” he said.
MCA Youth education bureau chairman Chong Sin Woon described the attempts by DAP leaders to get Tunku Aziz to reconsider his decision as a feeble gesture which showed the party’s weakness.
He said there was fear among those within DAP that action would be taken against them if they dared to voice their views on the matter.
“One small slip in their choice of words and they will be severely punished,” he said.
MIC Youth chief T. Mohan said the decision showed that there was no room for dissent in DAP.
He said it was very clear that DAP had recruited him to boost its image among the Malays but wanted him to be passive.
