SEPANG: Pakatan Harapan chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should be taking care of his grandchildren, instead of coming back to politic with the aim to assume power for his children, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic) said.
“He (Dr Mahathir) should be “taking care of his grandchildren”.
“But because he wants his bloodline to assume power, he has taken this path.
“A political party is not a family heirloom to pass it down to their children,” the Star quoted Zahid as saying when addressing the crowd at an event with Barisan Nasional candidates in the Sepang constituency on Monday.
Dr Ahmad Zahid also expressed appreciation for the development that Dr Mahathir had brought, but he said, other leaders who took over him had also contributed a lot to the development of the nation.
“Is he (Dr.Mahathir) the best? Zahid asked.
“I don’t think so,” he said.
When asked about “Malay Tsunami”, Dr Ahmad Zahid said “that was not the case.
“The tsunami that will really happen is a tsunami of lies to occur within the next 24 hours.
“They will use surprise, last-minute attacks to flood us with all kinds of slander.
“But we are the wall that will protect such lies from conquering the hearts of voters,” he said.
