Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
PETALING JAYA: Former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad has denied all allegations of being a part of any move to topple the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
In an interview with Bernama Radio24 on Wednesday, Mahathir said that it was actually the view of PKR Information Chief Rafizi Ramli and that the move to topple the government has been in existence since the time he was a prime minister.
"It is the job of the opposition to topple the government and take over," he said during the radio interview.
Rafizi in a statement earlier that day said that the Kajang by-election was necessary as a method to upgrade the state, considering the latest dynamics of Umno and Barisan Nasional to take over Selangor.
"It is an open secret that the move to remove Najib has begun and I cannot rule out the possibility that Najib is removed and Umno falls to the ultras led by Mahathir Mohamad's faction.
"The unscrupulous attack and schemes to take Selangor by hook or crook will begin the moment Najib is removed," he claimed.
