DAP MP Kulasegaran urges people to support the Save Malaysia campaign to prevent the nation from becoming a dictatorship.
PETALING JAYA : DAP MP M Kulasegaran today called on all Malaysians, regardless of their political leanings, to support the Citizens’ Declaration and the ‘Save Malaysia’ campaign to prevent Malaysia from lurching towards a dictatorship.
Parroting his party leadership’s stance, Kula claimed the nation would continue to suffer if Najib continued to lead Malaysia.
“The longer Najib stays on as prime minister, the more damage will be done to Malaysia,” said the Ipoh Barat MP.
He acknowledged that many Malaysians had been critical of the Pakatan Harapan for teaming up with former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad in the campaign to oust Prime Minister Najib Razak.
Kula urged Malaysians to look at the bigger picture and be concerned about the nation marching towards a dictatorship.
He said the joining of forces by Mahathir and others to oust Najib was a necessary strategy as there was no way Najib would resign on his own, or be forced out by Umno.
Since the launching of the Citizens’ Declaration on March 4, the Mahathir-led anti-Najib force had come under fire from various quarters, including Pakatan supporters and civil society groups.
Kula said coming together to Save Malaysia did not mean they had forgotten their differences with Mahathir or his “past misdeeds.”
“The Citizens’ Declaration deserves the support of Malaysians who believe that Najib should not lead Malaysia any longer,” said Kula.
