Dalam satu ceramah di Segamat, Johor, ketua umum PR
bertindak celupar dan melampau batas apabila beliau berkata Tun Mahathir patut
“mati saja” daripada berkempen untuk BN.
SEGAMAT: DATUK Seri Anwar Ibrahim on Wednesday called on former prime
minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to “just die” instead of campaigning
for Barisan Nasional.
“Sudah mau mati, dah 83 tahun. Berapa la lama lagi? Kalau
dah nak mati, mati saja lah (It’s almost time for him to die, at 83
years old. How long more? If you are going to die, just die),” he said at a ceramah in Kampung Abdullah here.
(Dr Mahathir is actually 87 years old.) Anwar was Dr Mahathir’s deputy when the latter was prime minister
but was sacked following allegations of abuse of power and sexual
misconduct. Anwar added in a sarcastic tone that he had forgiven Dr Mahathir, as
he knew the latter would not survive a prison term and that there were
no prisons wanting to accept him as he was too old. He also called for the premature death of BN, and its component parties, the MCA and MIC. Earlier, he had accused BN of trying to prevent DAP from using the party’s “Rocket” symbol for the election. “When Pakatan said fine, we will use the moon (Pas’s logo)
nationwide, BN panicked and pushed to say DAP can use their rocket
logo,” claimed Anwar.
Dalam ceramah yang sama, Anwar juga sempat memutarbelit
lagi kisah kemelut antara DAP dan ROS, dan menyalahkan ROS kerana terlibat
dalam “konspirasi” untuk menumbangkan DAP.
