Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim today cited Umno founder Onn Jaafar's campaign against feudalism in defending Pakatan Rakyat's brush with the Selangor palace over the appointment of the state menteri besar.
Anwar said this in reference to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's budget speech last Friday, in which Najib mocked the opposition for earning the Selangor ruler's wrath by submitting a single candidate for menteri besar, despite a request for multiple candidates.
"I would like to explain this matter because I do not want this 'murka' (wrath) term (to be misused). Murka means we go against or disrespect the ruler.
"I have never issued any statement that questions the position of the Malay rulers or insulted them, inside or outside the House."
