Najib pressing the panic button

Najib pressing the panic button

THAT Prime Minister Najib Razak took to running down and lambasting Pakatan Harapan in the presence of some 900 local and foreign business leaders and investors is most unfortunate and smacks of desperation. He has indeed pressed the panic button!

Denouncing Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s legacy as being rife with cronyism and corruption is most ironical. When the entire world watches how puppet master Jho Low embezzled billions of dollars from 1MDB and laundered the proceeds around the globe, Najib should have exhibited more finesse and decorum.

The “bare-faced lies and misinformation” he accused the opposition of having manufactured “to damage Malaysia’s economy” are best rebutted by the conviction of few top bank officials in jurisdiction like Singapore and Abu Dhabi.

The three complaints of the United States Department of Justice speak for all. Lest he chooses to suffer selective amnesia again, will the true MO1 please stand up!

Never mind the pernicious corruption and endemic nepotism that have been very recently exposed locally in FGV and Mar, to cite a few, and the diversion of public funds from the likes KWAP and SRC to cover debt payment gaps. That his administration has a penchant for inflating project cost beyond market norms is an open secret.

In all fairness, we perhaps have no qualm about recognising whatever he has achieved. However, truth be told, his achievement pales and really nothing to shout about, when all the “so-called reforms” were unmistakably short-lived and aborted. Regrettably, it gave way to greed and dishonesty of the oligarchy, and fear of his own party.
