Opposition MPs rapped for walking out
KLUANG: The action of the opposition Members of Parliament in staging a walkout during the budget tabling has been described as an embarrassment to themselves.
Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said they deliberately walked out when the whole world was watching the presentation by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak.
“Their action is indecent because never in the history of the country have MPs walked out during the budget presentation,” the defence minister told reporters here after a thanksgiving ceremony to celebrate Felda Ulu Penggeli as the winner of the national Felda Villages Beautification Award in Ulu Penggelinear here yesterday.
Hishammuddin said the sincerity and honesty of these MPs were doubtful as their action is seen as irresponsible.
Various quarters, including PAS elected representatives, have slammed Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Pakatan Harapan MPs for staging the walkout. – Bernama
