PETALING JAYA: Perkasa boss Ibrahim Ali has once again torn Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin to shreds, labelling the Oxford-trained politician as a madman fond of making moronic statements. In a text message to FMT, the Pasir Mas MP said: “Everybody hates Khairy.”
“He is a leader who practises money politics and arrogantly helped himself to every government project when his father-in-law (Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) was prime minister,” he added.
The Perkasa chief was livid over Khairy's statement that the right-wing Malay movement was causing support to dwindle for Umno and Barisan Nasional.
In an interview with Malaysiakini, the Umno Youth chief also said he believes that most of Perkasa's members were from Umno.
Ibrahim stressed that Perkasa was only formed after the 2008 general election which saw BN, under the leadership of Khairy's father-in-law, suffer its worst ever setback.
The Perkasa chief reiterated his claim that it was Khairy who was responsible for the electoral debacle and the people's hatred for him extended to Abdullah as well, since the latter was under his thumb.
“Perkasa was formed to prevent a division among the Malays,” he stated.
“Khairy's accusation that we are the cause of BN losing votes would have made sense if we were formed before the last elections. But now his statement is moronic and he's talking like a madman.”
He also took a swipe at Khairy for urging the government to practise transparency in awarding contracts.
“As if such transparency was practised during Abdullah's era,” he sniped.
“Khairy is a man with high ambitions and no fangs. It's these kind of people who will drag Umno down,” he added.
