Tajuddin strikes conciliatory tone

OUTSPOKEN MP Datuk Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (BN – Pasir Salak) struck a conciliatory tone when he called on all MPs to work towards improving the lives of all Malaysians.

“From what we’ve heard, it sounds like it is only the Opposition who cares for the people.

“But the truth is, we all represent the people. That’s why I feel sad when Azmin Ali (PKR – Gombak) said the people would take action (over the Anwar issue). What is this?” he said, referring to the MPs' uproar over the sodomy allegations against PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Tajuddin said the issue was personal in nature and no one knew if the allegations were true.

“Furthermore, the allegation that Umno is part of the conspiracy to fix Anwar is not true. Why do they accuse us? This is not right.”

When Tian Chua (PKR – Batu) pointed out that it was because Umno and the Barisan Nasional were the ruling government, Tajuddin said that was the perception of the Opposition.

“They have been painting a bad picture of us for months and have taken advantage of it.”

When several Opposition MPs tried to stand up, Tajuddin said: “C’mon man, stop it, enough is enough. A lot of time has been wasted. Let’s ask for forgiveness from each other, hold out our hands and help the people.”

Tajuddin said something had to be wrong with all the MPs if they treated each other like the best of friends outside the Dewan but like mortal enemies when inside the House.
