KUALA LUMPUR: Perkasa boss Ibrahim Ali today continued his verbal tirade, this time against Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Nazri Abdul Aziz, whom he claims has lost his marbles.
The independent Pasir Mas MP was livid with Nazri over his jibe against Perkasa, and described the latter's comments as “least valuable”.
"A statement made by someone who is insane is least valuable and a waste of time. I am sympathetic (towards him) but what can I do? His statement makes the Malays hate Umno more.
"If Umno and Barisan Nasionl want to regain the support of the people, then get rid of Nazri,” Ibrahim said in an SMS to the media.
Nazri had earlier ridiculed the proposal made by MCA vice-president Donald Lim, who called for the formation of a Chinese version of Perkasa.
In shooting down the idea, Nazri had said that Umno and BN wanted to distance itself from Perkasa, which he described as “extreme and racist”.
“We want to get rid of Perkasa and he (Lim) wants to be an extremist. What about the Indians? Let’s also form Kadazan and Iban extremist groups, and then, let's all fight...
“I think it (Lim's proposal) is ridiculous,” he said, adding that BN and Umno reject racism, and this includes Perkasa as well.
Lim had called for the formation of such a Chinese body in order to tackle Perkasa, which has been at loggerheads with several MCA leaders, including its president Dr Chua Soi Lek.
