An aide to Transport Minister Anthony Loke has questioned whether state broadcaster RTM is sabotaging the federal government.

This was after RTM did not broadcast the speeches of Loke (above) and Negeri Sembilan menteri besar Aminuddin Harun at the Pakatan Harapan government's inaugural national-level Chinese New Year open house event in Seremban tonight. Loke is also the Seremban MP.

"Not a single word of the speeches of Aminuddin and Loke Siew Fook were broadcasted [...] what is this if this is not sabotage?"

"Heads must roll over the highly possible sabotage against the government administration," said Loke's press secretary Lim Swee Kuan said in a statement tonight.

Lim said an official letter will be sent to Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo who oversees the state broadcaster.

The national Chinese New Year open house, organised by the Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry, was held at Seremban's Dataran Sentrio.

Also present were Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Deputy Prime Minister Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng and other cabinet members.
