IPOH: Perak Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia has condemned those who belittle the efforts of the Mentri Besar over smartphone donations to students from the B40 group.
Its chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu (pic) expressed his disappointment at those who took the opportunity to worsen the situation by throwing accusations at leaders who were trying to ease the people's burden.
He said the act of insulting or belittling the efforts of Datuk Saarani Mohamad is unethical and disappointing.
“We can have different political views or party struggles but such incidents are not acceptable.
“Perak Bersatu hopes that such incidents will not happen again in the future as we also pray for the well-being of everyone, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said in a statement on Thursday (June 17).
Social media users have been condemning the Mentri Besar after “‘low spec” smartphones were handed over to the students.
At a press conference on Wednesday (June 16), when reporters asked if the phones, which were a donation from YTL Foundation to the state, were not suitable for use due to their low specifications, Saarani said it was “better than not having any at all”.
