KUALA LUMPUR, May 1 – Caretaker Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak today hit out at the political opposition for having made a slanderous remark about a Barisan Nasional election campaign banner in the Telugu language in Bagan Datuk, Perak.
“We live in multiracial Malaysia and the Telugus make up one of the communities and that’s their language (on the banner). #SlanderTsunami,” he said in a post on his Twitter account. Najib said when the opposition often repeats the case of the alleged Bangladeshi voters, even banners were not spared their slander.
The Prime Minister commented on a post in a Facebook account today of a picture of a banner and a caption claiming that it was printed in the Bangladeshi and Vietnamese languages and purportedly linking it to polling on May 9 in the 14th general election. — Bernama
