Press statement by MCA Vice President Senator Dato' Sri Ti Lian Ker
MCA REMINDS LIM GUAN ENG TO HEED DYMM YDP AGONG’s ADVICE TO HEAL INSTEAD OF DESTROYING RACE RELATIONSHIPS!
Lim Guan Eng should stop playing or firing up racial conflicts to divert his personal issues with regard to the undersea tunnel and allegations of abuse of power to avoid a debate challenge by MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
In fact, MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong had on the 2nd of September publicly condemned irresponsible groups for the campaign to boycott Non-Muslim products. (https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2019/09/02/mca-slams-groups-calling-for-boycott-of-non-muslim-products )
Only after Ka Siong’s call for a “buy Malaysian products” instead of campaigning along Non Muslim lines did Lim Guan Eng follow through the MCA President’s statement and repeated it 2 days ago when opening the Huazong AGM in Alor Setar. Now he cleverly wants to up the tempo and temperature of race and religion by trying to nit pick on MCA and MIC and cunningly pit them against PAS and UMNO . It is this very cunning political trickery by the likes of Lim Guan Eng and other DAP leaders that have caused a rising of the racial temperature on the national scale now.
Lim Guan Eng instead of trying to play up the racial conflict of this small and insignificant group, should heed and support the YDP Agong's call that political polemics that are causing a strain on race relations should not be prolonged. YDP Agong has advised for more healing gestures and words to heal, fix and restore broken relationships just today 9 Sept 2019 in conjunction with the YDP Agong's birthday . YDP Agong further reminded that the unity, peace and harmony that have been built ( under Barisan Nasional) “ over these 62 years, if we ever lose them, will be very difficult to get back.”
