Work comes first, says Anwar of Dubai Move

PUTRAJAYA: For Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar, focusing on work is more crucial than fretting over whatever moves are being hatched out there.

“I read about the Dubai Move but we will focus on work. That is their (Opposition) work but it does not impact us, and what is important is that we have started an important programme for the people on Jan 2,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the national Central Database Hub (Padu) launch here yesterday.

“Our focus is to develop the country and the people.”

Asked whether he would remain the Prime Minister, he replied curtly: “Alhamdulillah.”

On Dec 30, Community Communications Department (J-Kom) deputy director-general Datuk Ismail Yusop claimed that such a plot to change the government was being executed by Perikatan Nasional leaders and government backbenchers who were on vacation in the United Arab Emirates.

According to Ismail, a meeting took place in Dubai to assign specific tasks to “agents” to identify MPs who might want to switch their support to the Opposition.

Several leaders have since rubbished the purported move.

On Monday, Deputy Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Mohamad lodged a police report against a YouTuber for accusing him of conspiring with a group of MPs in Dubai to oust the government.

The Lipis MP, who is also an Umno supreme council member, said he wanted to clear his name as the individual had attempted to link him with those involved with the alleged scheme.
