IPOH: Ousted Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin has lashed out at his two former executive councillors, accusing them of being slackers when they were in government.
He claimed Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi and Kapt (rtd) Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu were under-performers.
“You can ask the ex-officios — they know. Many of the duties in their portfolios were not carried out,” he told reporters after inspecting the damaged marble plaque beneath Pakatan Rakyat’s “Democracy Tree” here, yesterday.
Pieces of memory Perak State Assembly Speaker V. Sivakumar inspecting a vandalised marble plaque in Ipoh yesterday. Vandals have allegedly damaged the plaque put up in front of Pakatan Rakyat’s prized ‘Democracy Tree’ to mark the historic open-air assembly sitting on March 3.
Nizar also rebutted a recent statement from Mohd Osman claiming that the DAP and PAS dominated all decisions made during exco meetings.
“In the 11 months that we were running the state, all decisions made in the exco were collective.
“Many policies were based on the togetherness of Pakatan,” he said.
