Tengku Adnan: No national issues to discuss with Anwar


PUTRAJAYA: Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan  Tengku Mansor yesterday said there was no national issues that needed to be discussed between Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the government.

“Everything is merely about politics and if he (Anwar) wants a discussion then he should bring it to the Parliament.

“Everything has always been about politics to him. Why now, when they have disputed the results, and even the Election Commission?” he told reporters after launching the 10th anniversary of the Putrajaya Lake Cruise here yesterday.

Tengku Adnan said the opposition leaders were never sincere in their action nor honest with their words.

He was commenting on a suggestion by Anwar to have an open dialogue with the government to discuss ‘national issues’ in the spirit of Merdeka.

On the cruise, Tengku Adnan, who is Federal Territories Minister, said it needed to be further promoted as the best tourism product in Putrajaya and believed it could be realised with the service having been taken over by a subsidiary of Putrajaya Corporation (PPj) since last July 1.

Various programmes, including rebranding, are on the line to make the service more attractive, he added.

The packages offered by the Putrajaya Lake Cruise are the Cruise and Learn Education Package, Memorable Alumni/Reunion Cruise Package, Sparkling Fireworks Cruise,

Love Boat Perahu Dondang Sayang, Cruise Water Activity and Recreation Package. — Bernama
