Claiming that several Perikatan Nasional (PN) MPs are dining on “sponsored” lunches at the Parliament building amounting to some RM6,000 to RM10,000 a day, P. Prabakaran demanded to know where such funds came from.

Naturally, the issue became a trending topic overnight as images of the supposed luncheon and snapshots of the banquet’s itinerary and receipts went viral.

Netizens were quick to spot that among the items listed in the receipt was some udang galah or giant river prawns, costing a total of RM2,785.

Some even came to compare the meals eaten by Opposition MPs during Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) time in power.

The banquet’s itinerary also listed the names of government ministers and ministries as well as several Government Link Companies (GLC) like Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA), Prasarana Malaysia, and others taking place between July and August 2020.
