GUA MUSANG, Nov 17 – Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah is of the opinion that the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government is chaotic and has failed to fulfill their promises.
He said PH leaders have not been able to adjust themselves to being in the ruling government, with some of them taking their time to understand the new roles they now play.
He said there are some of them who see themselves as still new and carry themselves like the opposition when the truth is that they are now in the ruling government and are holding ministerial posts.
“The same goes for us (Umno) as we are still awkwardly trying to adjust ourselves as the opposition,” he told reporters after visiting the site of a new mosque being constructed in Bandar Lama, here, today.
The new mosque, based on the concept of Masjidil Haram in Mecca is being built at a cost of RM23 million and is due for completion in May 2019.
Tengku Razaleigh who is also Gua Musang MP cited the example of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad himself admitting that some promises could not be fulfilled, to back his opinion.
“It is difficult for the PH government to abolish tolls, the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) loans, and bring down the price of fuel,” Tengku Razaleigh said.
He remarked that the reason they were unable to fulfill these promises was because it would cost a lot of money.
Tengku Razaleigh or Ku Li as he is more commonly known as said regret could be the reason why some university students opted to march to Parliament recently.
“Some of them are angry, it’s like they were cheated because they were hoping repayment would only come into effect when they were making at least RM4,000. But now the government has said that they have to make repayments even with a minimum salary of RM1,050,” Ku Li added. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
