A lawyer for Dr Mahathir Mohamad is asking Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak whether he is trying to strategise to invoke the use of the controversial National Security Council Act, following his recorded speech alleging two individuals are out to destroy the country's unity.

Mohd Haniff Khatri Abdullah in a Facebook posting last night asked why Najib must give a negative impression which has no basis and is incorrect over the chronology of political events from 2008 till now when the Rulers Conference is going on at present.

“The real answer is that we should not forget that Najib has seen the NSC 2016 Act being passed which gives him drastic power and discretion to declare an emergency at a particular area by declaring it a security zone and put that area under curfew.
