Kepala Batas BN MP Reezal Merican hit out at Tony Pua over the DAP MP’s Sept 29 Facebook posting labelling the Registrar of Societies (ROS) and Malay daily, Utusan Umno’s running dogs.

Reezal, in his own Facebook posting this morning, slammed Tony for being an immature and mediocre politician by calling the ROS and the Umno-owned newspaper as ‘Umno dogs.’

“I’m dumbfounded by the rudeness of DAP’s Tony Pua. He has reduced himself to a mediocre person by name calling, in this case referring to Utusan Malaysia and ROS, as Umno’s dogs,” said Reezal.

Pua’s FB postings were allegedly done on the night of Sept 29 after the results of DAP’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) re-elections were known.

Reezal cut and pasted Pua’s postings on his own Facebook page and launched a seething attack on the DAP MP, who was elected to the CEC in the Sunday polls.

In Pua’s first posting at 8.56pm, which was put up on Reezal’s FB wall, Pua stated: “I’d like to congratulate the wisdom and maturity of DAP national delegates for voting in the same 20 Central Executive Members proving that there was no element of wrongdoing in the last election. The Registrar of Societies can go **** himself.”

Pua told to apologise

In the second posting at 9.41pm, Tony Pua stated: “The newly re-elected DAP Central Executive Committee has had its very first meeting to co-opt the exact same 10 members as previously co-opted in the previous election.

“The CEC has also unanimously elected the exact same office-bearers led by national chairman Karpal Singh and secretary-general Lim Guan Eng. Umno and its dogs, Utusan and ROS can go…!”
