Well, as far as I'm concerned, taking on Raymond Tan (Tan) is akin to taking on Musa, as Tan was controversially appointed and retained by Musa despite the criticism from the majority in BN.
Funny thing is that hardly anyone (leaders) now in UMNO or the so-called BN comes out to defend (supporting) Musa on his appointment of Tan; his influence is seen relatively and significantly lower than before the recent UMNO election. However, Gahpur Salleh did raise this case in the parliament quite sometimes ago when SAPP left BN.
The unexpected emergence of Salleh Said Keruak as an UMNO State Deputy Liaison Chief is an interesting twist & telltale sign in Umno politic. Meanwhile, Shafie Apdal is conveniently tasked to head Kedah Umno Liaison Chief, possibly to avoid the direct conflict in
Are there anyone know why LDP is so daring to call Tan (or his supporters in positions) to vacate the appointments voluntarily on the pretext of strong public interests? Chin Su Phin (Deputy President of LDP) also named CM for doing the wrong thing. Yes, they would not have done it without some sorts of mutual understandings at the higher level.
Is Musa being systematically marginalized by someone in UMNO or BN? Maybe soon the time will tell.
The same group of politicians who defended Musa aggressively on the Matzu Statute issues two years ago reemerged trying to raise themselves to better “Posts” by trading with their “integrity” and “principles” again.
PBS has been trying to benefit from this squabble, and seeking gains by pleasing Musa even means to go against public interests.
The whole episode of development is just despicable and low class.
