Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is behind the total mess in Perak and everyone knows that.
Anwar is also the source and inspiration behind the ‘kurang ajar’ (ill-mannered) attitude of DAP’s Karpal Singh who is taking legal action against the Sultan of Perak for consenting the appointment of the new Barisan Nasional’s Mentri Besar last Friday.
However, Anwar has been quiet over the untidiness he had created in Perak.
His party-hopping strategy had thrown the country into uncertainties when he claimed of having the support of 30 BN MPs for him to become Prime Minister. He kept on changing the dates to become PM when his Sept 16 target did not materialise.
Anwar deems party hopping as something ethical when Bota assemblyman Datuk Nasharuddin was enticed to PKR but Anwar’s joy was ephemeral when Nasharuddin made a U-turn 10 days later and rejoined Umno. Perak politics were subsequently thrown into chaotic.
If there is someone to be blamed over the pandemonium in Perak, it is Anwar Ibrahim, the best political deceiver-cum-sod mist.
He was called the boy who cries wolves for his Sept 16 prank.
However, there is a new twist of event today (Sunday, February 08) when DAP chairman Karpal, in a no-holds barred press conference in Penang, condemned and blamed Anwar for throwing the country into a political turmoil, especially in Perak.
In his most scathing statement since the formation of Pakatan-Rakyat, Karpal said Anwar is not qualified and capable to lead the PR coalition.
As I have said, it is a flimsy, fragile and loose coalition that will disintegrate in just a matter of time,
Karpal also labelled Anwar as an immoral leader for promoting party hopping as a way to grab power (referring to Anwar’s 16th September failed political coup to take over the federal government).
Karpal was also visibly upset with his DAP comrades, especially father and son team, Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng, for dancing to the tune of Anwar and listening too much to his rhetoric and antics.
He said he was all alone struggling to fight against the implementation of the controversial hudud laws as being advocated by PAS leaders without getting support from his own party leaders, including the two Lims.
“They were quiet when I am fighting against hudud. It is shameful. It is time DAP forget about Anwar,” he said.
Karpal who is Bukit Gelugor MP and once known as the Tiger of Jelutong also urged DAP leaders to pull out from PR. He doesn’t see any benefit for DAP to be in PR.
Well Karpal, I hope it is not too late for you to ‘divorce’ Anwar. I still remember that you once said that Anwar was the most suitable leader to lead the country during your ‘happier times’ with Anwar.
During the press conference, Karpal also warned those who have lodged police reports against him for challenging the Perak Sultan to ‘jangan main-main dengan saya’ (don’t mess around with me) and be prepared to face the consequences.
To this Karpal, the Malays would also like to warn you not to mess around with them and do not ‘kurang ajar’ with our Sultan.
Like Anwar, you are also a ‘thorn in the flesh’ to the Malays.
