Dr M meeting Hindraf: Indian support for BN not affected

 | August 20, 2017

Umno Supreme Council member Abdul Azeez says when Mahathir was prime minister for 22 years, he did not do anything for the Indian community.


TEMERLOH: Umno Supreme Council member Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim is confident that former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamed’s meeting with the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) would not affect the support of the Indian community for Barisan Nasional (BN).

Azeez said since taking over the helm of the government, Prime Minister Najib Razak had taken several steps to look after the welfare of the community.

“He (Dr Mahathir) can meet with anyone he wants, but it is only the BN government under Najib’s leadership who can look after the people, regardless of whether they are Malays, Chinese or Indians.

“When he was prime minister for 22 years, what did he do for the Indians. And the Indian community and Hindraf must know the truth.

“Recently, in the WhatsApp group, a message was spread that he said if given a chance, he would do better than before.

“When he was prime minister for 22 years, he did not do anything, now that his age is almost 100 years, he will do it,” he told reporters after opening the Kuala Krau Umno division delegates conference here today.

Azeez was commenting on Mahathir’s meeting with the Hindraf chairman at the Perdana Leadership Foundation office in Putrajaya earlier this week to invite the group to join the opposition pact.
