A good one Ahmad Shabery Cheek. That ‘naive’ opposition MP needs to go back to school and learn about ‘Independence Day’ and ‘National Day’.
What a shame for someone who claims to be Malaysian – especially an elected Member of Parliament – for not able to distinguish between the two. Was he born in Malaysia? Did he study in Malaysia or Burkina Faso?
Malu lah! Better find yourself another issue to politicise! Even a primary school kid will not ask such a question at the Dewan Rakyat!
Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek, Wednesday raps an opposition Member of Parliament for his shallow understanding of statehood and current issues.
The minister had corrected a statement by Lim Lip Eng (DAP-Segambut) when Lim asked the government to stress on National Day which is celebrated on Sept 16, when submitting his supplementary question, during a question-and-answer session in Dewan Rakyat. “I feel the honourable Member of Parliament does not understand what is Independence Day and National Day. I feel sad. We have Independence Day celebration and Malaysia Day celebration on Sept 16.
“Until now, there are still honourable Members of Parliament who are still confused which is Independence Day and which is Malaysia Day. It reflects the views and attitudes of members of the elected representatives from your party,” Ahmad Shabery said.
Lim, in another supplementary question, asked Ahmad Shabery whether the Goods and Services Tax (GST) would be imposed on the Merdeka Day celebration next year.
The question drew criticism from Ahmad Shabery who asked Lim on how to claim GST payment from the public who wanted to take part in the celebration at Dataran Merdeka. “I feel the honourable Member of Parliament seriously lacks understanding on the issues of statehood and GST,” he said.”
