A DAP leader has hit back at Umno saying BN is the one using Nazi propaganda strategies to whitewash the 1MDB scandal.
Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua was responding to Umno deputy president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's speech at the Umno general assembly where the latter accused the opposition of using Nazi strategies to spread lies about the government.
"What the opposition claimed, particularly on the financial abuse with regards to 1MDB and SRC International by the Umno president... is proven to be true and had not been denied by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
"Instead, the one using the Nazi's 'big lie' is Najib," Pua said in a statement last night.
Najib has thus far denied wrongdoing or taking public funds for personal gain.
'Read DAP constitution'
Pua also responded to Najib's speech at the Umno general assembly where he claimed if DAP came to power, Malay rights and institutions would be destroyed.
Pua noted Najib even claimed DAP's constitution was silent on Islam as the religion of the federation, defending the institution of the Malay rulers as well as the special privileges of Malays and bumiputera.
However, Pua pointed out that DAP's constitution clearly stated the party will uphold the Federal Constitution, which covers the provisions on Islam as the religion of the federation, the institution of the Malay rulers and the special privileges of the bumiputera community.
Pua added DAP also reiterated its commitment to these issues in the Shah Alam Declaration in 2012.
"Is Najib illiterate that he cannot understand what has been written and published by the DAP?" he said.
Pua also questioned if BN component parties such as MCA, MIC and Gerakan and others had specific provisions in their party constitution with regards to the issues raised by Najib against DAP.
"Certainly not. The fact is, Umno is trying to mislead and confuse the people about DAP's constitution," he said.- Mkini
