Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan is not only arrogant but resorted to lies to smear DAP when he took to twitter and tweeted the following.
“Let me be clear. I don’t take lectures or advice from a chauvinist and racist party like DAP! Period!”
Is Abdul Rahman Dahlan so ignorant that he could not understand my simple statement? Or is he trying to play stupid so that he can continue to manipulate and instigate racial sentiments?
I could not be clearer that I fully support a thorough probe and investigation on the allegation that house buyers are being victimized by housing developers. However, there is absolutely no need for Abdul Rahman Dahlan to look at such allegation from a racist angle to fan racial sentiments and publicized it even before any investigation has been conducted.
Abdul Rahman Dahlan’s twitter rant against the DAP is just a tactic from him to divert attention from his inability to respond to PMUM suggestion, thereby making baseless accusation and lies that DAP is chauvinist and racist.
Abdul Rahman Dahlan must respond to the suggestion by Persatuan Mahasiswa Universiti Malaya(PMUM) whether he agrees that property discount should be extended to all low-income groups regardless of race.
It is pure hypocrisy that a minister that comes from UMNO, a party which only accepts a single race membership, supported race-based policies, and fight for the rights for a single race is now accusing DAP for being chauvinist and racist.
I hereby challenge Abdul Rahman to prove that DAP has in the past supported any racial policy or fight for the rights of a single race. DAP has never endorse any policy that is race-based as we believe policies should be formulated on a need-basis to benefit all Malaysians regardless of race.
Let me answer Abdul Rahman Dahlan question that he tweeted, “Has DAP become too big-headed to acknowledge that Bumiputera house buyers’ rights must be protected?”
DAP will not only fight and protect the rights for bumiputera house buyers but will fight and protect the rights for all Malaysian house buyers regardless of race. Is UMNO prepared to do the same?
