PR leaders: Tunku Aziz is a BN agent

September 24, 2012
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 24 — Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders have labelled Tunku Abdul Aziz Ibrahim a Barisan Nasional (BN) agent who lacks credibility following recent reports where the former DAP vice-chairman has openly criticised his former party and leaders.

The opposition leaders yesterday slammed Tunku Aziz (picture) as a traitor in response to the latter’s statement on Friday about his plan to tour the country to open the minds of the people, especially opposition supporters, to make the right decision during the upcoming general election.

Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai described Tunku Aziz’s actions as representing BN, saying the latter was now an agent of the ruling coalition for his attacks against DAP and PR leaders.

“He is now like a BN agent, attacking PR and DAP every day. I pity him for due to his treachery, many have avoided him,” Tan told The Malaysian Insider when contacted yesterday.

Tan also describe Tunku Aziz as weak and not having any credibility and integrity left.

He also accused the former DAP leader of ill intentions for his accusations about the DAP without any basis and proof.

Kuala Selangor MP and PAS leader Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad expressed shock over Tunku Aziz’s statement, saying the latter’s decision to tour the nation was a waste of time.

Dzulkefly also regarded Tunku Aziz’s actions as being those of a BN agent because of its wide coverage in BN-controlled newspapers and television channels.

“This is a wasteful action and a treacherous attitude,” he said.

“If we look at the coverage given to him by Umno and BN-controlled media, it is clear he is a BN agent,” he added.

Rasah MP Anthony Loke agreed with his colleagues that Tunku Aziz was no longer credible.

“He is no longer credible and his words have made people lose respect for him,” Loke said.

He added Tunku Aziz’s accusations about the DAP were baseless and without proof, expressing confidence that people could judge Tunku Aziz for themselves.

Tunku Aziz had in May announced his departure from the DAP over a conflict of opinions with other party leaders over the Bersih 3.0 rally on April 28.

Following his departure, Tunku Aziz has been increasingly vocal and critical towards the opposition PR especially the DAP, stirring discontent among his former colleagues.
