‘Kit Siang failed to dis­lodge BN in 13 gen­eral elec­tions’

New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: DAP ad­viser Lim Kit Siang is not qual­i­fied to teach any­one about “strat­egy” as the party has never de­feated Barisan Na­sional in the past 13 gen­eral elec­tions.

Min­is­ter in Prime Min­is­ter’s De­part­ment Datuk Seri Ab­dul Rah­man Dahlan said the DAP vet­eran should re­alise the party lost be­cause he (Lim) was part of DAP’s “prob­lems”, not the so­lu­tion.

“Ev­ery­one knows he’s in charge of DAP. He has been tested 13 times, and yet, he failed every time. So, I don’t need strate­gic lessons from him.

“And, when is he go­ing to say ‘I’m go­ing to throw in the towel’? He’s been ac­tive in pol­i­tics for 51 years, and yet, he failed to dis­lodge BN,” he said.

Rah­man, who is also BN strate­gic com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor, was re­spond­ing to Lim’s re­mark in Par­lia­ment yes­ter­day, where the lat­ter had of­fered a “free tu­ition course on the meaning of strate­gic” to the for­mer.

This was fol­low­ing Rah­man’s claim that Lim had mas­ter­minded an elec­toral fraud in the DAP party elec­tions in 2012.

Lim has de­nied the al­le­ga­tion and de­scribed Rah­man’s claim as “strate­gic lies” to de­monise him.
