‘Tail between legs’: Wee taunted for staying silent on Azeez

Susan Loone  |  Published:  |  Modified:

Penang Pakatan Harapan leaders have turned the tables on MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong for his apparent silence over the implication of an Umno politician in the state’s RM6.3 billion undersea tunnel project.

Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy questioned the silence of BN leaders after Baling MP Abdul Azeez Rahim was alleged to have been paid RM3 million for "consultancy" work on the project, the subject of a massive MACC probe.

"Why is Wee not responding with the same kind of fervour and energy that he did when he queried the Penang government over the undersea tunnel project?

"Wee churned out statement after statement over the issue, and so did Penang BN chief Teng Chang Yeow, who held several press conferences to attack the state government and Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng over the project,” he told Malaysiakini yesterday.
