PETALING JAYA: The documents pertaining to the purchase of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s bungalow were not sourced by Barisan Nasional but by DAP and PKR, says Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan (pic).
In a series of tweets on Friday, the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister hit out at Kluang MP Liew Chin Tong, calling his defence of Lim a “hastily concocted reply”.
“It wasn’t BN who sourced for the documents on the house scandal. Perhaps Chin Tong should check with his DAP and PKR people who Lim Guan Eng whacked before!” tweeted Abdul Rahman.
He proceeded to list down a number of things that he said could not be blamed on Barisan.
“It wasn’t BN who forced Lim Guan Eng to buy property and at such undervalued price. Stop blaming others!
“It wasn’t BN who forced LGE to buy the property from this particular lady whose boss is the KLIDC owner.
“It certainly wasn’t BN who asked Ambiga and Bar Council to suggest that Lim Guan Eng step down,” he posted.
Abdul Rahman added that the timing, seller and price of the bungalow were not determined by Barisan.
“So how can YB Liew Chin Tong and Ng Wei Aik try to blame this as a BN conspiracy for the Sarawak elections?” he posted, referring to the Tanjong MP who had defended Lim in a statement earlier on Friday.
He said the two MPs were “embarrassing themselves” and that their “lame excuses” only weakened Lim’s position as Chief Minister.
