Dr Mahathir’s change in perception of DAP ‘hard to accept’

If DAP not chauvinist why not join them? Salleh asks Dr M

(Bernama) – FORMER prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s statement that he has realised his perception of DAP had been wrong raises many questions and is hard to accept, said Umno treasurer Salleh Said Keruak.

If Dr Mahathir realised that his perception of DAP had been wrong all this time, why did he not apologise to Lim Kit Siang and the party during the launch of Pakatan Harapan in Tampoi on Friday, asked Salleh.

“Clearly, Dr Mahathir did not show any regret over his ‘wrong’ perception of DAP before. Looking at this, can we accept the political views of Dr Mahathir today? For me, of course not,” he said in a blog post today.

The communications and multimedia minister said Dr Mahathir’s speech at the event raised several questions.

“If he is aware that his perception of DAP had been wrong, why not disband Bersatu and join DAP to form a non-chauvinist, multiracial party?

“If Dr Mahathir admits that his previous perception of DAP had been wrong, then what is the guarantee that his perception is not wrong this time around?

“Is it only now that Dr Mahathir realises that DAP also has Malay and Indian members?

“If previously, he was unable to accept DAP’s ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ politics, has he now accepted the struggles of DAP?”
