DAP’s Ong Kian Ming, who is a columnist at The J-Star, wrote today about Khalid Ibrahim’s “desperate and increasing futile attempt to remain as the Mentri Besar of Selangor”.
Ong accused Khalid of accomplishing what the BN has thus far failed to do. The DAP Serdang evangelista MP asks Khalid whether he felt that it was really worth it breaking up Pakatan Rakyat.
“Was it really worth it to mislead the Sultan when you clearly knew you did not command the confidence of a majority of the Selangor state assembly representatives? Was it really worth it to say that the government you led was never really a Pakatan government since it is not a registered entity? Was it really worth it to turn Pakatan colleagues against one another and to push things to breaking point within PAS?”
Gunting dalam lipatan
Using the huge public platform given him by the MCA media, Ong took the opportunity to cast aspersions on Khalid’s character vis-a-vis his Bank Islam settlement and water MoU signed with the federal government.
While at it, Ong did not miss throwing in some nasty innuendos as well about Khalid’s purported “failure to give a proper account, either his own party (then) or to the public” about the Selangor MB’s alleged ‘settling’ of that RM70 million debt.
Urging Khalid to step down, Ong mocked that the former’s support – received from only 12 Umno out of 56 Selangor Aduns – is a “feather in TSKI’s cap”.
Pinning the “sordid episode” on Khalid, Ong lamented that the Tan Sri’s attempt to continue holding on to power “has undoubtedly harmed Pakatan’s political standing” in the eyes of the general public.
How nice of the J-Star – which hardly gives its precious column inches to any MCA people – to provide the DAP evangelista politicians with generous opportunities to air their grouses and hit out at the BN’s interests.
