PETALING JAYA: MCA wants DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang to publicly explain why he is afraid of directly offending Umno.
MCA Publicity Bureau chairman Chai Kim Sen (pic) said Lim’s apparent fear was reflected in the way he had attacked MCA over DAP’s Teresa Kok video faux pas.
Lim’s accusation that MCA was behind Umno’s criticism of the controversial “Onederful Malaysia CNY 2014” video was unwarranted, he said.
“Lim is blaming MCA out of desperation because he is afraid of Umno,” Chai – who also described Kok’s video as tasteless – said in a statement.
He was responding to a claim by Lim that MCA had misled Umno on the true meaning behind the Seputeh MP’s video message.
Chai added that Lim had not directly criticised Umno ever since the controversial video was uploaded on YouTube.
“His (Lim’s) lame excuse that MCA has misled Umno over the video’s true meaning only goes to show that he is afraid to offend Umno.
“I strongly advise Lim to deal directly with Umno if he is worried that Kok’s video has insulted them instead of constantly resorting to attacking MCA out of desperation,” he said.
Chai pointed out that Lim had also asked PKR’s Machang Bubuk assemblyman Lee Khai Loon to apologise over his insulting “kangkung” flashmob.
“But when his own DAP member produces an uncouth video, he blames MCA instead,” he said.
