MCA and Gerakan Youths show that they are just ‘puppets’ of UMNO Youth
It has not escaped notice that the Gerakan and MCA Youth had issued statements calling for the publication of the Ahmad Nordim BMF Inquiry Committee’s final report, only after the UMNO Youth Leader, Anwar Ibrahim, had expressed the view that the report should be made public.
Recently, Anwar Ibrahim seemed to have changed his mind, as the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamed, has shown from his complete silence his displeasure at making the BMF final report public.
As Anwar Ibrahim has changed his mind, it is not surprising that Gerakan and MCA Youths have also quickly backtracked and changed their minds too. This explains for the statement by Anwar Ibrahim that the Barisan National Youths will now wait for the Bank Bumiputra’s legal board to decide on the BMF final report first. This is a big shame not only on Anwar Ibrahim, but also on Gerakan Youth and MCA Youth.
