KANGAR: Former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak calls the DAP Advisor Lim Kit Siang as a “coward” when this latter has pulled out from the debate which they had planned to hold after Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
Najib said, Kit Siang who decided on the (Kleptocracy) topic for the debate has backed out earlier as “he is not courageous enough to face the reality” and to continue with the plan.
“Kit Siang’s reason for not having the debate (with me), that he is scared the debate might stir a racial clash between the Malays and the Chinese, is entirely not logic,”Najib said in his speech at Kompleks Pas, Perlis here Saturday evening.
Najib said, the DAP leader, Kit Siang attacked and alleged him as a thief, robber and made several slanders and when he was prepared to debate on it, he ran away.
“Following several slanders, I am ready to come forward to debate on it so that the truth will surface. Unfortunately Kit Siang has no guts, coward and ran away even though he has to decide on the topic of the debate,” he added.
Najib who is the Pekan MP also said, in 48 hours after both of them had agreed on the debate Kit Siang withdrew after he received several advices not to continue with the plan.
Najib also mentioned that Kit Siang who tried to defend himself said that he made such decision for the interest of the nation.
Earlier in his speech Najib stressed that UMNO and Pas should be the choice of the young generation today following Pakatan Harapan (PH) government has not fulfilled their election manifesto.
He also urged UMNO and Pas to strengthen their relationship to enable them to snatch back Putrajaya in the coming 15th General Election. –Malaysia World News.
