Be wary of DAP’s ac­tions, U-turns, says Ir­mo­hizam

New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: A Barisan Na­sional law­maker called DAP ad­viser Lim Kit Siang to come clean on his party’s mar­riage of con­ve­nience with Pas in the 13th Gen­eral Elec­tion (GE13).

Kuala Se­lan­gor mem­ber of par­lia­ment and Umno Supreme Coun­cil mem­ber Datuk Seri Dr Ir­mo­hizam Ibrahim also said peo­ple should to be wary of DAP’s ac­tions and U-turns.

“Be­fore GE13, DAP had been try­ing their to per­suade Chi­nese vot­ers that all matters re­lated to Is­lam, such as the hudud agenda, had noth­ing to do with them.

“Nowa­days, they seem to be ag­gres­sively op­pos­ing the pro­posed Pri­vate Mem­ber’s Bill 355 (RUU 355), which was tabled by Pas pres­i­dent (Datuk Seri Ab­dul Hadi Awang).

“What is more dis­ap­point­ing is that Lim is try­ing to ex­ploit RUU 355, which, in fact, does not af­fect non-Mus­lims, by try­ing to in­tim­i­date and mis­lead the pub­lic,” he said yes­ter­day.

Ir­mo­hizam slammed the op­po­si­tion for mak­ing a fuss of the pro­posed bill.

“What they are do­ing will only con­fuse the vot­ers. Ev­ery­thing will be ex­ploited by them as long as it can win votes,” he said.
