We are bent on disbelieve about rumours circulating amongst some circles indirectly put forth a notion in the tone of probably that there was ‘Dedak’ involved when Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir presented his case of the ‘Deklarasi Rakyat’ petition at Istana Anak Bukit on 16 September.

PUTRAJAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today admitted that his attempt to convince the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to act on the Dr Mahathir-Lim Kit Siang Declaration had failed.
The former prime minister said he had an audience with the King in Kedah for more than an hour to discuss the declaration – which supposedly bore 1.2 million signatures – and the relevant laws as provided by the Federal Constitution related to the King’s rights. Asked to divulge what transpired in the meeting,
Dr Mahathir declined to do so, saying that it was done in confidence. “I cannot repeat it as this was (done) in confidence. What we have requested for cannot be implemented. Why? I don’t know. “We had a long discussion. He asked me about the provisions of the law which I had explained. But in the end, I could not convince him,” he told reporters today.
Dr Mahathir is appealing to the Rulers when they meet in the upcoming Conference of Rulers to deliberate on the petition and act in favour of the declaration. He added the declaration group had sent out letters on the matter to all state heads.
Dr Mahathir claimed that the declaration had been screened and 500,000 signatures had been struck out from the declaration, leaving “only 1.2 million signatures.”
In early June, a police report was lodged against fake signatures supposey contained in the declaration. Freelance programmer Azharuddin Othman was reported saying he had sold over the details of Malaysian citizens to a third party for the Dr Mahathir-Lim Kit Siang Declaration.
By Tun Dr Mahathir’s standard of attitude and practice of late, he has evolved from a democratic leader to a distant feudalistic dictator.
He has numerous times threw his tantrums against the many political stunts which were not properly thought through that flunked half way, in the strategy of ousting Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak through demonising him, his leadership and administration. Some miserably buckle, even upon roll out.
His idea of Presiden Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd. Yassin for the next prime minister upon the failure of UMNO/BN for the control of majority of the Dewan Rakyat after the 14GE, is an announcement the former made in London which did not augur well amongst Pakatan Harapan leaders, who have been struggling far longer to defeat UMNO/BN.
By Tun Dr Mahathir usual habit of throwing allegations without bothering to offer any shred of evidence, the situation much like this when his proposal is hoped to be accepted and adopted but instead rejected, is due to ‘Dedak’.
Under normal circumstances, it is quite average the prime minister of 22 years three months and fifteen days would cast the damnation, insinuating that those who are no longer supportive of Tun Dr Mahathir must have sold out, most probably to ‘Dedaks’.
The “Thirteen Million Plus Ringgit” question is; HOW MUCH?
The more important “Thirteen Million Plus Ringgit” question is; REALLY?? Who the Devil is he is taking this position about the HRH Malay Rulers?
To even thread on this is really low. Then again he is a man of contradiction and surprises and his notanle calling card, is doing the unthinkable.
