DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang should stop asking questions that he already knows the answers to, said Communications and Multimedia minister Salleh Said Keruak.
In a statement, Salleh noted that Lim has so far posed 35 questions which were actually statements disguised as questions.
“Lim should stop this game of asking questions he already knows the answers to. And stop pretending to ask questions when he is actually making statements or allegations.
“Furthermore, Lim should learn to accept different views,” said Salleh.
Salleh also insisted that Lim was only pretending to ask questions to avoid being taken to task for making false or misleading allegations.
“Anyway, many of those 'questions' Kit Siang posed have already been replied by other members of the cabinet.
“Lim is actually aware of this but he is playing the game of pretending he does not know this,” said Salleh.
On Tuesday, Lim had bombarded Salleh with 15 questions on the government’s alleged scandals and failings, including 1MDB and corruption within Sabah’s Water Department.
This is after the minister questioned whether the opposition could come up with a shadow cabinet and also asked that the opposition explain what it would do if PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim cannot become prime minister.
Yesterday, Lim added another 20 questions to Salleh.
Salleh described Lim’s questions as a waste of time and was designed to distract the people from more important issues such as who is Pakatan Harapan's nominee for prime minister.
“Lim, Muhyiddin Yassin, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, PKR and PAS do not appear united on this matter.
“Is that what Lim is trying to distract us from? And my question is a genuine question, not a pretend question,” he stressed.- Mkini
