‘Kamu angkuh, lagak macam menteri hingga ahli perniagaan tolak kerajaan PH’, Dr M beritahu Pua

PETALING JAYA: Beberapa jam selepas dikritik pemimpin DAP, Tony Pua, Dr Mahathir Mohamad sekali lagi menyelar Ahli Parlimen Damansara itu sebagai seorang yang angkuh dan berlagak macam menteri semasa menjadi setiausaha politik.

“Saya hanya memetik satu contoh (dalam memoir saya), (tetapi) ada ahli perniagaan lain, (termasuk) seorang Cina memberitahu saya bahawa dia (Pua) sangat angkuh. Itu perkataan yang mereka gunakan…dia berkelakuan seolah-olah menteri,” kata Mahathir.

Pada sidang media menjelang pelancaran memoir barunya, Mahathir berkata, komuniti perniagaan menolak kerajaan Pakatan Harapan (PH) pimpinan beliau sebelum ini kerana sikap sedemikian.

“Sebagai setiausaha politik, anda sepatutnya memberikan laporan mengenai politik negara, bukan ke sana ke sini melaksanakan dasar kerajaan,” kata Mahathir menurut laporan Malaysiakini.

Pua menjadi Setiausaha Politik kepada Menteri Kewangan ketika itu, Lim Guan Eng dalam kerajaan PH selepas gabungan itu menawan Putrajaya dan beberapa negeri lain pada PRU14.

Lim ialah Setiausaha Agung DAP dan Pua dianggap penyokong tegar beliau. Pentadbiran PH hanya bertahan 22 bulan sebelum ditumbangkan dan diganti oleh gabungan pimpinan Muhyiddin Yassin.

“Lim berpendapat kerajaan Najib Razak menyeleweng dan dia patut membatalkan semua kontrak yang dicapai dengan kerajaan terdahulu. Tapi apabila anda buat begitu, anda menjejaskan kontraktor, dan sesiapa saja yang (berkait)…termasuk pada pekerja, pembekal dan syarikat-syarikat sokongan.

“Justeru kita tidak boleh buat begitu saja kepada kontraktor atau mengurangkan (nilai) kontak secara paksa,” kata Mahathir.

Mahathir berkata, Pua sepatutnya tahu batas tanggungjawab sebagai setiausaha politik namun bertindak sebaliknya.

“Disebabkan orang ini, ramai ahli perniagaan menentang kerajaan kerana mereka menganggap kerajaan tidak bersimpati kepada mereka,” katanya.

Terdahulu, Pua menyelar Mahathir sebagai pemimpin yang bersikap remeh dan lebih mempercayai hartawan tidak jujur.

Setiausaha Publisiti DAP itu turut menafikan tuduhan bahawa beliau bertindak di luar bidang kuasanya sebagai setiausaha politik kepada Guan Eng dan tidak sekali-kali melibatkan diri dalam rundingan bagi pihak kerajaan.

“Mungkin saya menjadi sasaran mudah kepada sesiapa yang tidak berpuas hati dengan tindakan Kementerian Kewangan menangani masalah yang ditinggalkan Najib (Razak) atau mungkin Mahathir sendiri berat sebelah atau prejudis terhadap saya.

“Apa pun, cara paling senang untuk membuat Mahathir marah ialah dengan mendakwa ada bos perniagaan besar tertentu yang tidak dilayan secara adil,” kata Pua.
