Could he? I am not sure. But lots of money are being thrown at the Indians and Chinese in Perak. Daylight corruption. And all these are acceptable?
From Malaysian Insider:
So far, (Perak BN menteri besar) Zambry has been promising money wherever he goes and sticking to a scripted line which bears similarities to Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi oft-quoted “I am the prime minister for all Malaysians.”
This morning (Sunday), Zambry also went to the same temple as (Perak PAS menteri besar) Nizar, in an attempt to pull the rug from under Nizar, and became, according to locals, the first MB from Barisan to ever step foot in the temple.
He announced an immediate allocation of RM100,000 for the Thaipusam celebrations.
Zambry arrived at the temple at 8.30am, accompanied by Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister Department, T.Murugiah, and temple officials.
After being garlanded, Zambry made it a point to stop at stalls which lined the road leading to the entrance of the temple, before finally addressing a small crowd from a small stage.
Besides announcing the allocation, Zambry who greeted the crowd in Tamil, reiterated that he was MB for everyone, a message he has been repeating at all official functions.
“I want to tell all Indians, here, that I am the MB of all races and I am here for you.”
A day before, Zambry attended a Chinese New Year party organised by BN and said the same thing.
But his message yesterday at a Chinese school was partly drowned out by hundreds of protesters outside the compound.
At the MCA-organised party, he also pledged cash for a Chinese musical orchestra from one of the richest government Chinese schools in the city.
