Datuk Seri Najib Razak should not entertain any accusations put forward by controversial carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad advised today.
The businessman has been in the limelight of late, lobbing repeated accusations against Najib and Umno leaders, and has promised to dish more dirt on other scandals linked to other politicians and even the prime minister’s family members.
“I don’t think he should do anything,” Dr Mahathir (picture) told reporters here.
The longest-serving prime minister said that Najib should expect various allegations to surface while holding a political post, drawing parallels to his time in administration.
“When I was prime minister also they accused me of corruption ... I don’t have to respond.”
