KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 17, 2014:

Malaysians trust Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali more than government leaders, former New Straits Times editor-in-chief Datuk Abdul Kadir Jasin claims, through a poem dedicated to the latter.

In his latest blog entry today in the form of couplets dedicated to the controversial figure, the veteran newsman said that there was some truth to the reprimands by the former Pasir Mas Member of Parliament.

This, Abdul Kadir claimed, had led to many supporting the Malay right wing group.

“Ramai dok kutuk Ibrahim Ali. Melayu Cina kepadanya tabur benci. Mengata mengumpat berguni-guni. Tapi nak jawab hujah dia, tak berapa mengerti (Many criticise Ibrahim leading Malays and Chinese to hate him but are unable to argue with him).

“Kalau Tok Him satu duit tak guna, pasal apa puluh ribu Melayu ikut dia? Dia bukan ada kuasa. Dia pun bukan orang kaya. Dia tak bagi Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia. Tapi orang totok serta profesor, berduyun-duyun ikut dia. (Despite not using money, not being rich and not providing the 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M), professors flock to him)”.

His poem also criticised Barisan Nasional for its inability to capture Selangor from Pakatan Rakyat during the 13th General Election with no aggressive moves laid out to strengthen Umno’s stand in the state.

He also warned of a similar situation in Kedah, where Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir had failed to secure one of nine appointee slots on Umno’s Supreme Council during the party’s election in November last year.

“Mukhriz rampas Kedah dari Pas. Takkanlah jawatan dia mereka nak rampas? Kalau Presiden buat juga, nampak dia cari bahaya. Silap-silap Kedah Pas tawan semula. Jadi fikirlah sebelum buat apa-apa (Mukhriz seized Kedah from Pas, how can they seize his post? If the President does it, he is looking for trouble as Kedah Pas may seize the state again. So, think before doing anything first).”

His poem also cheekily criticised the recently built Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) which was facing many issues due to the selection of inexperienced contractors and the many potholes along the runway.
