KUALA LUMPUR: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abd Aziz is unperturbed by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s comments that he should not have been made a Cabinet minister.

“It’s not worth commenting since he is an old man. Let him talk. What he feels is no longer relevant,’’ Nazri told a press conference at Parliament House yesterday.

He was asked to comment on the former prime minister’s remark against him.

“As at 12.35pm now, I am (still) a minister in the Prime Minister’s Department,’’ he said.

“If you all want to layan him (pay attention to him) layan lah (carry on),’’ he said.

Dr Mahathir had said that he did not like Nazri as the latter had criticised him previously.

Dr Mahathir said he was also not happy with the reappointment of Datuk Johari Baharum as deputy minister, although Johari had been cleared of any wrongdoing.

Johari, who was previously accused of accepting money to release detainees, was investigated and cleared by the then Anti Corruption Agency (now MACC).
