UNLIKE YOU, my son doesn't have such "bad intentions" - Mahathir slams The Economist

UNLIKE YOU, my son doesn't have such "bad intentions" - Mahathir slams The Economist
Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has denied a report which speculated that his son Mukhriz was among those planning to oust Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
In criticising the report by The Economist, a reknowned international magazine, Mahathir said that his son did not have such "bad intentions".
"They (The Economist) cannot think of anything good about anybody.
"That (ouster) is what they would do if the are in Mukhriz's place, but in Malaysia we do not have such bad intentions," he told journalists today.
Earlier, Mahathir had visited the Perdana Leadership Foundation open day in Putrajaya and spent some time reading story books to children at the event.
On another matter, asked on Mahathir's opinion about former arch-rival Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah's call to review the Sabah 20-point agreement and Sarawak 18-point agreement, he said the government was already handling the matter.
On Wednesday, Tengku Razaleigh, better known as Ku Li had revealed that the review which should happen 10 years after the Malaysia agreement did not materialise as then deputy prime minister Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman who was responsible for it died in office.
He had called for the government to conduct the review now in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the formation of Malaysia even though it is 40 years late.
Tengku Razaleigh said this was to address any resentment by Sabahans and Sarawakians who feel they were shortchanged when forming the federation.
