S'gor MB seeks clarification from Chief Secretary over support of BN
Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San today tabled a motion for an emergency debate at the Selangor State Legislative Assembly to discuss the matter.
Speaking to reporters here, Lau said he and several representatives had received copies of presentation slides believed to be held by the Selangor State Development Office (SSDO) with objectives to "topple" the Selangor government.
Lau added the other stated objectives included promoting the credibility of the federal government to improve support from the rakyat as well as to demote the image of Pakatan Rakyat to ensure BN can return to power in Selangor and secure a two-thirds majority in Parliament by the next general election.
According to Lau, the meeting "Pelaksanaan Program People-Centric Negeri Selangor" that was held on Feb 26, also proposed the involvement of the Election Commission and the National Security Council in carrying out the plans.
Lau said the SSDO is a government agency under the Implementation and Coordination Unit (ICU), which in turn is under the purview of the Prime Minister's Department.
"This is an abuse of government agencies for political mileage. It is against the principles of democracy," Lau said.
Lau said the BN is free to carry out their efforts but must not involve government agencies in their campaigns.
