TTF: I doubt that leaders from the DAP, especially Lim Guan Eng, have the balls to respond to Arul Kanda’s call (see news item below).
Even when challenged by Dato’ Seri Wee Ka Siong to debate the RM6.3 billion Penang Undersea Tunnel project, both the Chief Minister of Penang and his ‘apek’ dad resorted to all sorts of ridiculous excuses and childish references – Ka Siong is a ninja assassin, he’s UMNO’s catspaw, he takes his scripts from Rahman Dahlan, he should ask so and so to debate instead, and so on.
The best part is, there was absolutely no reason for Kit Siang to butt in. The challenge was for his son to debate the tunnel scandal, not him. But the fact that he chose to wage vicious and meaningless attacks against Ka Siong goes a long way to prove the following:
1. that in the DAP, it indeed is all about the Lim dynasty, not the party
2. that in the DAP, Lim Kit Siang is the de facto Secretary-General
KOTA BARU: 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) chief executive officer Arul Kanda Kandasamy has invited DAP leaders to a townhall session will be held in Penang on Thursday to explain issues with regards to the government’s strategic investment arm.
“DAP leaders, who have all this while been spreading false information regarding 1MDB, should make it a point to attend the session.
“This is a good opportunity for them (and the public) to ask any question. I am not afraid to answer. We want to tell them the real story.
“I hope they (DAP leaders) will attend. After hearing our explanation, I am sure that they will never play with the 1MDB issue again to cause confusion among the people,” he told a Press conference following a townhall session organised by the Kota Baru Barisan Nasional and N87 Friend’s club at Taman Guru here on Monday night.
Also present were Kota Baru Umno divisional chief Tan Sri Mohd Fatmi Che Salleh, BN candidate for Kota Baru parliamentary constituency Fikhran Hamshi Mohd Fatmi and Kota Lama state seat candidate Chua Hock Kuan.
Meanwhile, Arul also slammed Datuk Zaid Ibrahim is trying to gain cheap publicity following reports that he planned to sue ANZ Bank in Australia to recover RM2.6 billion, which he alleged was siphoned from 1MDB.
He said the latest stunt by Zaid must have been triggered by his disappointment for not being selected by his party DAP as a candidate for the 14th General Election (GE14).
