BLOG writ­ers and In­sta­gram users stand to win RM10,000 if they can pro­vide proof that DAP ad­viser Lim Kit Siang is a racist and a party dic­ta­tor.

Umno in­for­ma­tion chief Tan Sri An­nuar Musa said the prize money was up for grabs in a com­pe­ti­tion.

“Peo­ple can sub­mit their en­tries to the of­fice of the Umno in­for­ma­tion chief for the con­test which ends on May 30.

“I will raise the money for the win­ner,” he said to reporters at the me­dia cen­tre in Par­lia­ment yes­ter­day.

An­nuar said the blog posts and In­sta­gram pic­tures should be based on facts such as par­lia­men­tary Hansard re­ports, past speeches and books con­nected with Lim.

An­nuar said Lim was free to call him names as they were politi­cians.

“It is up to the public to make as­sess­ments on his state­ments against me.

“I will have to hire a long list of lawyers and go in and out of court­rooms if I sue him over such state­ments,” he said
