The weekend was a torrid time for many as heavy rains and floods affected parts of the Klang Valley, displacing families from their homes.
As is expected after a natural catastrophe, Ministers came down to have a look at what’s going on and the reactions from netizens have not been overly positive.
Here’s some of them:
Azmin comes in to sweep the floors
International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali tweeted a video of himself sweeping floors in a house located somewhere in Gombak, which is also his constituency.
It’s part of a series of tweets of him visiting various areas and checking up on the locals who were affected by the flood.

Netizens were quick to comment on the video, with one user saying that it looks like one of those Pendidikan Moral assignments where students include pictures of themselves doing housework.

However, there were others that were critical, with another user listing things that Azmin should be doing instead.

Rina visited flood-affected area in high heels
Women Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Harun also drew criticism from netizens, who were questioning her attire when she visited flood victims.

Those who commented said that her attire was inappropriate given the circumstances with some comparing the Minister to other personalities.

Tengku Zafrul came to smile and wave
Even Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz was not spared from scrutiny, as social media users questioned the Minister after videos of him on a truck surfaced online.

Unkempt in both stories and appearance, Hakim loves tech but tech left him on read, previously he used to write about tall buildings and unoccupied spaces that he can't afford, and legend has it that he still can't afford it to this day
