KUALA LUMPUR: DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang is not capable of defeating Umno president Najib Razak on his own and thus he needs ex-Umno leaders to teach him, said Umno treasurer Salleh Said Keruak.
Salleh, who is also communications and multimedia minister, said Lim’s greatest fear was that Najib had proven to be a better strategist after all and was able to read all his political moves.
He said Lim now realised that Najib had skilfully pre-empted and countered all the moves.
“It is Kit Siang who is in a state of panic, not Najib, because his real game is being exposed and he is being stripped bare for all to see,” said Salleh in his latest blog posting today titled “Lim Kit Siang is panicking, not Najib”.
He added that Lim’s deceit was now as clear as day.
“(It) is very obvious when he tells one audience that Pakatan Harapan is being led by DAP while he tells another audience that PPBM and PKR are leading the Pakatan Harapan.”
Salleh said Lim thought that an Ali Baba arrangement could work in politics since it could work in business.
“And this is where Kit Siang has underestimated the Malays because they will reject his Pakatan Ali Baba even if he puts all the ex-Umno leaders on the front page as the Malay face of Pakatan Harapan.”
