Najib mocks Mujahid over Nurul Izzah’s criticism on Dr Mahathir

PUCHONG: Former premier Najib Razak took a pot shot at Minister in Prime Minister’s Department in charge of Islamic Affairs Datuk Seri Mujahid Yusof by questioning whether the present government is going through a period filled with turbulence and chaos.

The mocking made on Twitter comes in the wake of Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar’s interview in Singapore Straits Times that described Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as someone difficult to work with.

“Is it true that the administration of the PH government is chaotic and turbulent? People would not believe it, unless it is announced by the Minister of Theatrics,” Najib said. 

“For now, let’s wait for a new “letter from Cordoba” from the persuasive elder brother,” added the Pekan MP.

Mujahid previously released a theatrical open letter to Nurul Izzah last year after she resigned from all her positions in PKR and government-linked agencies following complaints of possible nepotism.

He used olden Malay terms in the dramatic letter then, leading to mockery on social media as well as from Najib then.

Nurul Izzah later criticised Mujahid for the letter by saying it was condescending and inappropriate.

The daughter to PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim revealed over the weekend that she is in her final term as a lawmaker as she was disillusioned by PH’s glacial progress in delivering its promised reforms, among others.

She also complained the coalition was not doing enough to address the racial imbalance among its supporters and criticised it for readily accepting defectors from Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN).
