LANGKAWI – Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri today condemned the actions of certain parties who brought up an old baseless accusation against her in the social media.
Nancy was accused of saying, “The Bumiputera will stoop to stealing if they are not assisted by the government”. Recently, the accusation has been repeated although she has denied the matter since 2013.
“This is unfair…from 2013 until this year, towards the election season, this accusation is being ‘replayed’,” she told the media here.
She said a statement that was made by her when answering a question in a programme she had attended five years ago had been manipulated by a pro-opposition media and had recently been brought to public attention again via the social media.
“In the name of Allah, I had never made such a derogatory statement,” she said while urging the public to not be easily influenced by the dirty tactics of the pro-opposition. – BERNAMA
