DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng demanded PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan furnish evidence for his claim of a possible plot to unseat Dr Mahathir Mohamad as prime minister.
“This is a fraudulent claim, slanderous and a lie.
“If he fails to do so ( furnish evidence), it will prove that Takiyuddin is irresponsible, lacks honour and is using the issue to distract attention from the claim that PAS leaders received funds from Umno,” the finance minister said in a statement this evening.
Party information chief Nasrudin Hassan, in a statement yesterday, alleged that there is a movement to unseat Dr Mahathir as prime minister.
“I believe Tun is stifled and uneasy with the attitudes of PH component parties especially DAP and PKR from Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s team that is seen as his rival to take the prime minister post.
“Tun looks to be alone in PH in defending a few policies that involve the interests of the Muslims and Malays in Malaysia,” he said.
