'Mukhriz is being a vengeful MB'

Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir has shown signs of a vengeful menteri besar, out to punish the Chinese for voting against BN, said Seputeh MP Teresa Kok.

In a press release today, Kok said Mukhriz's statement that he would not entertain any requests from Chinese schools in the Kedah was "unbecoming of a menteri besar".

"Mukhriz must accept that the voters have the right to choose whom they want to support and he must realize too that Chinese voters too are tax payers.

"It is therefore most unfair, undemocratic and unacceptable to discriminate against the Chinese community and Chinese schools," she said.

On September 24, Mukhriz told reporters in Shah Alam that his administration will concentrate on national schools because he could not ignore those who voted BN back into power in Kedah.

"I want to be fair but I am also human. In the end, I am forced to help those who have helped me before.

"If the state can afford to, then I will help others," he said, reportedFree Malaysia Today.

Kok pointed out that this was not the first time that Mukhriz had made known his stance on vernacular schools, citing how he had called for such schools to be replaced with a single-stream schooling system to foster unity. 

"Let me tell him that language or the vernacular is not a cause of racial polarization but unfair government is. 

"And politics of vengeance will certainly be a big cause," said Kok.
