KLUANG: Bersih 3.0 is the Opposition's excuse to threaten, condemn and spoil the image of Barisan Nasional, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
He said the Opposition was lying when it claimed that the list of voters was tainted.
"If the list is tainted, how come the Opposition is so confident of winning in the coming general election?
"And how has the Opposition won five states in the last general election and subsequently, seven of the 16 by-elections if the list was tainted?” he told reporters here.
Dr Chua said Pakatan Rakyat leaders, including PKR's Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, have been telling the people - even foreign dignitaries - that it would take over Putrajaya after the general election.
"The Opposition is lying, saying different things to different audiences," he added.
Dr Chua said the party also condemned those who turned violent during the rally and yet accused the police of brutality, singling out the incident where demonstrators overturned a patrol car.
Expressing his regret that some non-governmental organisations had been manipulated by the Opposition to take part in Bersih 3.0, he said he hoped the people could see the Opposition's true colours.
Dr Chua challenged the DAP to announce its development plans for Johor and not just their ambition to take over the state.
He pointed out that DAP must take responsibility when Islamic values were imposed on non-Muslims in Pakatan-ruled states like Kedah and Kelantan.
He said it was obvious that DAP was supporting PAS for its own survival and at the expense of the non-Muslims.
“PAS has never changed its objective of imposing Islamic rule in the country since four decades ago. The DAP had been opposing PAS all the while until the last general election,” he noted.
