KUALA LUMPUR: The claim by Pakatan Harapan (PH) communications and mobility committee member Datuk Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan’s that a grand scheme was being devised to topple Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was merely the former’s personal opinion.
In dismissing the claim, PKR communications director Ahmad Fahmi Mohamed Fadzil said the matter was a non-issue and called on the coalition to focus on people’s welfare instead.
“That (the claim) is merely (Khairuddin’s) personal opinion, considering that PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has given a clear statement of support for Dr Mahathir’s administration.
“I urge everyone to not give too much focus on party politicking, because what people need is assistance, support and guidance,” he said when contacted today.
Khairuddin in a Facebook posting today alleged the existence of a plot by certain irresponsible quarters, who were disappointed at not being given positions, seeking to topple Dr Mahathir from the premiership.
He urged those allegedly involved to desist from going ahead with the scheme as Dr Mahathir is doing his best to revive the country and need the support of everyone.
Fahmi, who is also Lembah Pantai member of Parliament, said issues close to the people need to be made priority in line with the spirit of the New Malaysia.
“In my own Parliamentary constituency, I give focus to resolving the people’s problems.
“Stop with the finger-pointing and instead make safeguarding the people as the focus,” Fahmi said.
Meanwhile when contacted, DAP national organising secretary and Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook declined to comment over the allegation.
