TTF: Dato’ Seri Mukhriz Mahathir had the cheek to accuse the Prime Minister of feeding dedak to the people of Langkawi (see news item below) when, for decades, he stockpiled on the ‘animal food’ his father fed him.
Ironically, that feed turned him and his brothers into multimillionaires fresh from the University, which goes to show that the kind of dedak the former premier feeds members of his family is of the kind fed only to those belonging to the millionaire’s club.
From secret negotiations in smoke-filled rooms to the stylising of corporate accounts to bail companies out, there never was a manoeuvre Mahathir missed when stuffing his sons’ vaults with Vitamin M (Money). And here we have Mukhriz accusing Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak of feeding Malaysians dedak.
Well, we can’t really blame this Kedah punk for his misconceptions now, can we? I mean, what would you expect a guy who’s been fed dedak all his life to say about money being allotted for wellbeing of the rakyat? Do you expect him to believe that there is such a thing as leaders genuinely wanting to serve the people?
This is a classic example of how improper nurturing develops the minds of the young and impressionable in very pathetic ways. Mukriz grew up watching his dad loot financial institutions and misappropriate pension funds. In his books, it is normal for a Prime Minister to redirect part of the loot to the people to ‘falsely’ impress upon them that the money is meant for their wellbeing.
Which is why, every dime Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak spends seems like dedak to him. Now, can you imagine what this punk would do if he were to be Prime Minister? Chances are, he’d stash some of the money in discrete locations around the globe just the way his dad did back in the nineties.
Mukhriz for PM, anyone?
ALOR STAR: The RM1.3 billion infrastructure development projects in Langkawi, announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on Saturday, is not ‘dedak’ (animal feed), Kedah Menteri Besar said today.
Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah, in dismissing Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) deputy president Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir’s claims, said the allocation was part of the Federal government’s effort to ensure that the island was not left behind in the country’s development programme.
“It is the Federal government’s responsibility to protect the welfare of the Langkawi people,” he said, adding that the announcement also showed that Najib was not neglecting any constituencies.
Bashah said the allocation truly reflected the wishes of the people in Langkawi and would help solved many lingering issues faced by them.
“The people must realise that the announcement was made under Najib’s capacity as the prime minister. Only the government can make such plans happen while the opposition can only make promises,” he said when met after the state MCA and Gerakan Chinese New Year celebration here today.
Bashah was commenting on Mukhriz’s claims that the recent announcement by Najib was equivalent to ‘dedak’.
The Kedah MB said the people was smart enough to evaluate on development projects carried out by the Federal government.
“The people are not so gullible that they can be cheated (by the opposition). They are smart because they can see for themselves the various development on the island.” he said.
Najib during his visit to Langkawi on Saturday had announced a mammoth RM1.3 billion allocation for five infrastructure projects for the island.
The allocation would cover water catchment projects, upgrading the Langkawi Hospita, building fire stations, quarters as well as roads.
