Are they helpful to UMNO causes? On the surface, they seem to be voicing out the essense of UMNO ie. Racism, Exclusivity, Barbarity etc. But it has also has a very deadly side effect. And if Najib doesn't know what it is ... which I won't be too surprise judging from what transpired thus far. His days are indeed very numbered.
Ibrahim Ali wants Idris Jala out of Cabinet
By Adib Zalkapli, The Malaysian InsiderKUALA LUMPUR, June 14 — Pasir Mas MP Datuk Ibrahim Ali flexed his political muscles and urged Datuk Seri Idris Jala to step down from the Cabinet over his remarks on subsidy cuts.
Ibrahim, who also leads the Malay rights group Perkasa, said Idris’s performance in the government does not reflect his achievement in the private sector.
“A minister like this should just resign. Or perhaps the prime minister should consider removing this person,” said Ibrahim when debating the Tenth Malaysia Plan (10MP).
“A real politician may say things to get political mileage. How could a professional make a statement that has confused the nation?” he asked.
Idris, who is also a minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, had predicted that Malaysia could be bankrupt by 2019 if it did not begin to cut subsidies for petrol, electricity, food and other staples, which he said cost the country RM74 billion last year.
He made the revelation late last month to justify the government’s plans to cut subsidies.
The Pemandu CEO’s estimation was however contradicted by the Finance Ministry which told Barisan Nasional (BN) backbenchers last week that the subsidy bill was only RM18.6 billion.
