There is no political unity in the state's Pakatan Rakyat, alleges a MCA leader
Penang Wanita MCA chairperson Tan Cheng Liang attacked the state’s Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, adding that a PKR backlash to his rule was expected.
“It is no surprise that suspicion and hatred has arisen due to all this dissatisfaction felt by PKR towards DAP,” she said in a statement.
Tan was referring to Penang Deputy Chief Minister I Mansor Othman, who was recently alleged to have referred to his boss as a “tokong” (deity).
Leaked minutes of a state PKR meeting showed that Mansor supposedly said: “He (Lim) is very arrogant…cocky and arrogant. It is not easy. Now more arrogant.”
This led Tan to criticise the Chief Minister’s leadership, claiming that he was not only “overbearing” towards the media, but also played down his faults in front of Penangites.
“It seems that Pakatan’s display of unity and co-operation are falling apart as mutual dissatisfaction underlines their alliance, proving that it’s just a political show,” she said.
PKR leaders have denounced the leak as an act of sabotage. Mansor on the other hand, denied attacking Lim, claiming that he had praised his boss instead.
