Jelutong MP Criticizes Muar MP for Labeling Unity Government as Hypocrites: Report

In a recent parliamentary debate on the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) Mid-Term Review (MTR), Jelutong MP RSN Rayer voiced his criticism of Muar MP Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman for accusing the unity government of hypocrisy. Rayer pointed out that Syed Saddiq seemed to have forgotten the support and assistance provided by Pakatan Harapan (PH) machinery, its MPs, and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim during previous elections, especially for his party, the Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda).

Rayer went on to draw a comparison between Syed Saddiq and his former ally, the late Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub, whom he regarded as a brother and mentor. He expressed his condolences for Salahuddin’s passing and contrasted Salahuddin’s loyalty and supportiveness with what he perceived as disloyalty, rudeness, and ingratitude from Syed Saddiq.

During his speech, Rayer questioned Syed Saddiq’s labeling of the unity government as hypocrites, especially when considering the former prime minister’s controversial statements and actions. He challenged Syed Saddiq to condemn the former prime minister’s divisive remarks and questioned whether he would similarly label other MPs, such as the one from Pagoh, as hypocrites.

Rayer also mentioned Indian superstar actor Rajinikanth’s visit to Prime Minister Anwar’s office in Putrajaya, during which Rajinikanth expressed admiration for Anwar’s journey from being a prisoner to becoming the prime minister. Rayer suggested that, like Rajinikanth, people should refer to Anwar as “thalaivar,” which translates to “the boss” or “the leader” in Tamil, as a sign of respect for his dedication to fighting for the oppressed.

This parliamentary exchange and Rayer’s remarks highlight tensions within the Malaysian political landscape, with Syed Saddiq facing criticism from a fellow MP for his characterization of the unity government and the importance of acknowledging political support received in the past.
