Chinese based Democratic Action Party (DAP) today has again lashed out at efforts taken by both UMNO & PAS to strengthen Muslim unity in an effort to reduce politicking and focus on the country's development and progress.
The party's deputy publicity chief Zairil Khir Johari said that clearly, Umno's decision to sit out in Chempaka was just an excuse to hide the fact that they would lose their deposit if they contested.
However, Zairil missed the fact that not everything in this country is about politics, well thats how the UMNO leaders sees it. This is drastically different to the DAP when even the smallest issues are politicised such as judges promotions, Anwar Ibrahim having tea with HRH The King and many other petty issues.
For BN & UMNO, the main thing now is to assist the Kelantan state government (remember they requested the Federal Government's help) in rebuilding Kelantan and also assist the people who have been affected by the massive flooding in Gua Musang, Kuala Krai and so on.
So Zairil, which is more important, playing cheap politics or the well being of the people.?
