My views of Karpal based on DAP’s actions, says Tajuddin


PUTRAJAYA: Agriculture and Agro-based Industry deputy minister Datuk Tajuddin Abdul Rahman said his statement about DAP chairman Karpal Singh during a talk in Kuala Besut, Terengganu was based on his observations on the actions of the party.

“Why should he (Karpal) react so hastily to it. My views were based on what the DAP had been doing all this while and the rapport between the party and the People’s Action party (PAP) in Singapore,” he said after the breaking of fast for his ministry on Wednesday.

He was asked to comment on Karpal’s police report on Wednesday against his statement on July 14, claiming it was seditious.

Tajuddin was claimed to have said that Karpal could become the first president of Malaysia if voters in Kuala Besut allowed the DAP to gain control of Putrajaya through PAS. — Bernama
