KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 12 — It was during Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s 22-year tenure as prime minister when Malaysia first began to “rot”, thanks to corruption and rampant power abuse, Lim Kit Siang alleged today.
The veteran DAP politician pointed out that it was during the Mahathir administration that the famous Operasi Lalang crackdown was carried out, among other mass arrests of anti-government dissidents under the now-repealed Internal Security Act (ISA).
“Furthermore, Dr Mahathir should be reminded… that he single-handed destroyed the independence, impartiality and professionalism not only of the judiciary, but also of other important national institutions like the police, the Election Commission, the anti-corruption agency, and the civil service,” Lim continued to allege in a statement.
Borrowing Dr Mahathir’s words from a recent blog post, the DAP leader agreed that “something is rotten in Malaysia”, but accused his long-time arch nemesis of starting the rot.
He said Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s recent sodomy conviction is proof of it, as although the leader, whom he labelled a “patriot”, had dedicated 47 years of his life to fight for justice, he was still made to suffer in the hands of those in power.
“Yes, something is rotten in Malaysia,” Lim said. “If Malaysians are asked as to who are the top political leaders, past and present, who should be languishing in jail for five years, different names would be mentioned but Anwar Ibrahim would not be among them.”
“This shows the rot in Malaysia, but it is a rot which was started during Dr Mahathir’s 22-year premiership, and by Dr Mahathir himself,” he said.
The Federal Court on Tuesday upheld the Court of Appeal’s 2014 ruling that had reversed Anwar’s acquittal of sodomising former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, also sentencing him to five years’ jail.
Anwar will now lose his Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat as the law bars anyone fined over RM2,000 or imprisoned more than one year from serving as a lawmaker.
In a blog post two days ago, Dr Mahathir appeared to lash out at the current Barisan Nasional (BN) administration, claiming that those who have dared to speak up or offer constructive criticism are being punished for it.
“Critics are being demonised by the mainstream media, by certain individuals and politicians who had lost. Critics risk their property being seized and auctioned, they may be bankrupted.
“I am now being accused of forcing the government to do the things which should not be done. And there are many more complaints about the state which would give it a rotten smell,” he had written.
Today, a mere 4 years later from above rant, Lim Kit Siang has conveniently "forgotten" all the scandals he had railed about Mahathir for 30+ years

Ah Moc...another name for you is SNAKE ! a dedak eating snake !Delete
At one time, you used to run down Anwar like he's pure evil. Check out how many anti Anwar articles in your blog. Now he's a prince in your eyes, just to support your incessant Mamak bashing now.
At one time, you used to diss HY repeatedly when he talked three talked four about LKS and son. Now that your newly-hatched hatred of LKS and son is overflowing and cannot be contained, you have fully embraced your erstwhile irritant HY to your bosom ! wakakakkakakaka
What is worse than a SNAKE ?
Answer : a dedak eating hypocritical snake ! hehehehe
anwar changes, lks and son change, so do I - the only person who hasn't change is maddyDelete
anwar, lks and son now suck up to maddy, but maddy still holds them in disdain and with hateDelete
Mamak must be a super being of been able to remain unchanged throughout his long life in yr eyes!
BTW, u still haven't resolve that f*cked dilemma between yr sifu & u - who's sucking up to who - lks or mamak in PH ke?
I know you, JJ and Monster are all sucking up to Bapak Ops LalangDelete
Since u want to play labelling. Then make very sure u have learnt well from that pet cat mourner!Delete
Like yr sifu, u r all sucking up to Bapak 1MDB.
I am glad whatever lks said about umno and maddy in the past did make its mark, if you can't feel and acknowledge that maddy is taking cognizant and mitigate the rot, then you are either blind or plain vindictiveReplyDelete
In the mist of the angers for the alleged mistreatments of his pet cat & added responsibility to be the prime provocateur due to temporary lost of action by his sifu, blind IS a mild figurative description!Delete
So too is plain vindictive.
It's more like expecting the vengeful bitch in heat to calm down while the hell freezes over!
Kit is not doing anything because Toonsie is doing DAP's bidding....?ReplyDelete
Bersatu is now DAP's bitch....?? Ha ha I'm Lovin' It.....
Badawi and Jibby had 15 years (2003-2018) to lock Toonsie up but they didn't. Too late, stiff shit, Allah the Merciful has granted Toonsie a second chance at redemption, who are we to argue? If one day the Almighty forgives Jibby and gives him a second chance Malaysians may forgive him too, and lock up Toonsie instead. Until then....
Those zombies WOULDN'T believe the Allah the Merciful has granted Toonsie a second chance at redemption.
They ONLY believe in a very different omnipotent being of their wet dream.
Ah Mok is obsessed with Mahathir and Kit Siang.ReplyDelete
Daily , several times a day.
Really creepy blog and creepy blogger this has become...
A creep with dedak in mind, wakakakakakaDelete
Aiyah, what sort of politiking is this? The past wrongs/missteps of TDM during his 22 years reign of autocracy and by one single autocratic party UMNO being talked about today when the current PH Govt. is a coalition of parties by consensus?ReplyDelete
TDM should absolved himself of such perceptions by Malaysians and PH should show Malaysians it is a New Malaysia by adopting to Reforms as promised in their Manifestos.
For this to take hold and make New Malaysia a reality instead of mere perceptions to the public, why doesn't the PH Govt. commit and adopt the following:
1. TDM remains as PM to govern and undo all the missteps/wrongdoings of the past and clean up all the mess left behind by his previous party UMNO.
2. Make DSAI the Deputy PM to implement and commit all the Reforms required to make a New Malaysia.
TDM/PM can't do it all alone (as admitted by him that it takes time) while DSAI is not doing anything yet to show he is really the one committed to reforms for a New Malaysia and happily waiting for TDM to do as much of the cleanup and reform work as possible before walking in and taking over the post of PM and continuing the cleanup and reforms.
What sort of lazy attitude is this when so many Malaysians are getting impatient to see how this PH Govt. can perform in this current term of 5 years?
Having TDM and DSAI holding the posts of PM and DPM in Govt. in their respective roles of working towards building a New Malaysia is definitely better than just 1 himself as PM doing everything at his own pace with a Deputy PM currently just warming the seat to be replaced.
What is preventing this from happening? Again politiking? LKS and DAP must share the blame since they are the 2nd biggest party with MPs in Parliament.
