Na­jib: It was in­tense, but all good now

New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak yes­ter­day said Wed­nes­day night’s Na­tional Trans­for­ma­tion 2050 (TN50) di­a­logue got in­tense.

“Dis­cus­sions got a lit­tle too in­tense yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day)! A lively dis­cus­sion, but it’s all good now,” he tweeted yes­ter­day.

Na­jib as­sured that all would be heard in the TN50 di­a­logue ses­sions be­ing car­ried out.

On Wed­nes­day night, film pro­ducer Datuk David Teo was slapped by co­me­dian Su­laiman Yassin dur­ing a TN50 di­a­logue ses­sion in­volv­ing par­tic­i­pants from the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened when Teo ap­peared to ques­tion the man­ner in which Datuk Rosyam Nor han­dled the ses­sion, and claimed that Rosyam had not given ev­ery­one an equal chance to voice their views.

The pro­gramme, aired live on Face­book, saw Rosyam chide Teo, who was deemed as be­ing dis­re­spect­ful to­wards Na­jib.

Rosyam then gave way to Teo to air his thoughts, and he be­gan to re­cite a poem.

How­ever, be­fore Teo could fin­ish, Su­laiman made his way to the podium and slapped Teo.

The video of the in­ci­dent has since gone vi­ral.
