JOHOR BARU: An Umno leader here has slammed former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin over his criticism against the government.
Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin (pic) said the National Recovery Council (NRC) president seem to have forgotten that most of the problems faced by the government today “was from the Perikatan Nasional government”.
"His attitude of pointing fingers clearly shows that he could only blame others for his own weak suggestions and work.
"He forgot that most of the problem the government face now was inherited from the Perikatan government.
"I believe the prime minister and members of the government as well as civil servants are trying to give their best to face the country's problem," he said in a statement here on Wednesday (Sept 28).
He added that Muhyiddin should instead work in a collective spirit as he is also part of the government.
"He has the right to give his views to the government, it depends on the government to consider it.
"Just because the suggestions come from NRC does not mean that it will automatically be executed," he said.
In a press conference on Tuesday (Sept 27), Muhyiddin had reportedly slammed the government for being slow in implementing the NRC’s recommendations.
He had expressed displeasure that only 16 out of 95 proposals by the NRC were implemented, describing the prolonged delay by the government as “not acceptable.”
