KUALA LUMPUR – Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that the party set up by him on 7 September 2016 will be destroyed soon.
In a blog entry, Mahathir who still addressed himself as the Chairman of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) said that the party will be destroyed for working together with UMNO.
“What happened to the pledge to fight and topple the kleptocrat leader? Oh, that was only a vow to rake support from the voters. You have achieved that and can forget about it.
“With that, Bersatu will be destroyed! With that, what will happen to the plight to save the Malays from kleptocrat leaders?
“That is the problem with Bersatu. As long as we get the benefit, that’s okay,” he said.
Bersatu once again is facing a rift when the party has divided its support between Mahathir and the President of the party, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
To make the matter worse, the position of Mahathir and four other party leaders were stripped off last week.
“It seems that many Malaysians are willing to accept leaders who have stolen billions of government’s money.
“Some of them are leaders and members of Bersatu who joined Bersatu allegedly wanting to topple the Prime Minister who stole billions of government funds.
“They worked with the previous opposition party with the same objective. And, the people won them as they believed in the sincerity of their promises and their leaders.
“After they won, the President of Bersatu plotted with the partues which had lost and got out from the Pakatan Harapan Government so that the Pakatan Harapan can be toppled.
“With the support of the thieving leaders, the President of Bersatu becomes the Prime Minister together with the parties which lost the election and was branded Perikatan Nasional,” Mahathir added.
Last February, Muhyiddin cooperated with Barisan Nasional and PAS to form the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government. –MalaysiaGazette
