KAJANG: Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim hit back at Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin who had mocked him for wearing a Selangor football jersey at an event recently.
“The Sports Minister asked why I was wearing a Selangor jersey when I was from Pulau Pinang. I see people wearing Manchester jerseys … Are they from Manchester?” he said to shrieks of laughter at the packed Taman Mesra community hall in Kajang.
Khairy supports English giants Manchester United.
Anwar, the Permatang Pauh MP also said that he had stayed in many places in Malaysia including Kuala Kangsar.
“I was also in Kamunting for two years,” he said in jest and in reference to his detention under the Internal Security Act.
“I also stayed in Selangor for berpuluh-puluh (many) years,” he added.
In his speech, Anwar also took the opportunity to mock suggestions of Badminton hero Datuk Lee Chong Wei contesting against him in the Kajang by-election.
