Dr M: Anwar Letter His Personal Opinion

in Latest/Slider

PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has dismissed the “letter of caution” by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to his PKR colleagues which warned them against working with the former prime minister.

Dr Mahathir said the letter was merely the “personal opinion” of the jailed Opposition leader.

“That is his personal opinion. He is entitled to it,” the former premier told reporters after a dialogue session organised by the National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia (Nufam) here, Thursday.

Dr Mahathir also refused to be drawn into a war of words with his former nemesis, who accused him in the letter of practicing crony capitalism.

“That is an old story. I don’t want to repeat it,” he added.

Several PKR leaders had confirmed the authenticity of the letter that surfaced two days ago, where Anwar stated that the Dr Mahathir-led Citizens’ Declaration was a flawed document and inconsistent with the Opposition’s reform agenda.

Anwar had warned his colleagues in the party that they may be used by the elder statesman and his friends to serve their agenda.

PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and her deputy, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, have since described the letter as an “internal issue”.
