BARISAN Nasional has to draw the line and counter the opposition’s lies and false accusations to safeguard the future of the country. BN strategic communications director Datuk Seri Abd Rahman Dahlan said the time had come for BN to tell the people that the opposition’s political approach was dangerous to the country.
“They have been saying that Malaysia is a failed state, which is a big lie. This is dangerous not to BN but the people because this could jeopardise the future of the country,” said Rahman.
He said BN had never run away from facing the opposition because BN was a government that had a clear vision for the development of the country and its people of various races.
“We have no problem explaining to the people matters relating to 1Malaysia Development Bhd and the RM2.6 billion donation.
“Now, we have to confront these lies. As the opposition, they know that if the economy continues to grow and the country continues to develop, the people will not support them. That is why they are making these false accusations about the economy,” said Rahman at the “Ceramah Rakyat” roadshow at Dataran Senggarang here yesterday.
Other speakers included Umno Supreme Council member and Batu Pahat division chief Datuk Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi, MCA vice-president Datuk Chua Tee Yong and state MIC chief Datuk M. Asojan.
“Has anybody asked the opposition about their policies regarding the economy, education or foreign relations? The opposition’s dirty approach will only divide the people,” said Rahman.
He said he realised that there were people who voted with their emotions, and urged them to check the facts before believing the opposition’s accusations.
“You have to look at the big picture and choose a party that has a vision to continue developing the country for its people,” said Rahman.
Chua, meanwhile, lambasted opposition leaders who were not “concerned” about their constituencies.
Chua claimed that DAP adviser and Gelang Patah member of parliament Lim Kit Siang was one such person, as the latter had “abandoned” his constituency.
