‘Anwar will politicise anything’


(Bernama) – “Anwar will politicise any issue.” These were the words of Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor responding to Anwar Ibrahim’s claim that the government was concealing information on the missing MH370 flight, as featured in the British newspaper, The Telegraph.

Tengku Adnan said it was impossible for the government to hide information on MH370 and there was no reason for it to do that, as the government also did not like the incident to happen.

“It is impossible for us to hide things…why should we? In the first place, we don’t want this to happen, and we don’t like it to happen,” he told the media after attending the presentation of awards for academic excellence at at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Presint 14(1), here, today.

Tengku Adnan, who is also Umno secretary-general, said he wondered why some people still fell for Anwar’s lies and hoped they would be more rational on the issue.

“They (opposition) will spin information and bad mouth us all the time. To them, whatever we do is always wrong,” he added.

Asked whether this was a political ploy by Anwar, who is PKR de facto head, Tengku Adnan said: “That is what Anwar is all about. Anwar is all about politics and he doesn’t even care about the country and the rakyat.

“It was the same with the water issue in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur when Pakatan prevented us from doing the Langat 2 project by not approving the project.

“Only just recently, they gave us the approval because of the quarrel between him (Anwar) and Selangor Menteri Besar  Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.”
