BUKIT Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh has described as “wrong” and “frightening” the defection of lawmakers from Umno to Bersatu.

Ramkarpal, of DAP, said almost half of Bersatu’s lawmakers now had contested and won on a Barisan Nasional ticket in the 14th general election.

  • The old man will say anything to justify his actions as long as his agenda is met. He thought that that he is still as powerful as yesteryears where he had and could use his black book on his subordinates. "Dulu lain sekarang lain" It is not frigthening but dangerous for when the new Umno MPs gets too many in Bersatu party they could easily re-morphed into the dreadful New Umno where even he Mahatir The Great could not even control them at all.. We shall see Najib will be pardoned and freed eventho he is convicted.His "cash is king" has really reached far and deep to easily call out for support. The old man has got to drop the old school ideas of building and enlarging his party by pinching or accepting froggies. He should embark on an inclusive approach and in making PH as the only single main party. He will be more than popular and as the first PM of a non communal party but truly a Malaysian in every aspect. That is where the New Malysia Era will be his creation and naturally all the reforms will fall in place. Well.... if he is too small minded to give a thought to that he will be continuing to play the same old same old political game without going any further and history will just remember him as a hypocrite and a die hard racist
