Kit Siang said that he is rather amused by the latest antics of Abdul Rahman and that he needs to thank the latter for finally resolving the question in his mind as to what the Barisan Nasional (BN) strategic communications director position constitute.
“I must thank him for finally resolving the question in my mind as to what are the job specifications of a BN strategic communications director.
“Which is clearly to create and amass ‘strategic lies’ about the opposition and use them to attack the opposition parties in the BN-Umno owned or controlled mainstream mass media and the social media
“There are indeed very ‘strategic’ errors by the BN strategic communications director.
“I am prepared to give the BN strategic communications director a free tuition course on what is ‘strategic’ and what is not.
“The latest example of such BN ‘strategic lies’ is that I had masterminded electoral fraud in the DAP party elections in 2012, which is a new twist to a tissue of lies which had been concocted and disseminated in BN/Umno misinformation campaign,” Kit Siang told reporters at the Parliament here today.
The Gelang Patah MP said that the latest of the fake news is that he had a secret meeting with former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Dec 3, where a deal was made to assure that Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir would be Prime Minister while he be made the Deputy.
“Where there was never such a meeting between Mahathir and myself on Dec 3 and we had never discussed the subjects of Prime minister and Deputy Prime Minister in our discussion so far.
“Abdul Rahman wants me to retire from politics for failing to topple Barisan Nasional in previous General Elections and he said that I should “feel ashamed” towards DAP party members and should make way for other capable leaders.
“It is Abdul Rahman who is a man of no shame, who does not realise that he is making a fool of himself trying to shed “crocodile tears”,” said Kit Siang.
