Sheriff : Stop the Malay- Chinese boxing match for political mileage.
The news from Utusan Malaysia.
MP Tajuddin spins a conspiracy theory that all the APs for import of frozen meat were given to non-Malays. Malays cannot enter the business as they hv no import license.
The Asst Minister for Agriculture denied the allegation. He said most of the AP holders are Malays.
Tajuddin then said the Chinese AP holders hv made arrangements with their foreign suppliers to only deal with them. So the Malays cannot enter the business as it is monopolized by the Chinese.
The Asst Min denied the allegation saying it cannot be held responsible for the commercial arrangements between the foreign frozen meat suppliers and their customers.
I think the Asst Min makes more sense to me than Tajuddin who maintains the Chinese AP holders formed a cartel with their foreign frozen meat suppliers in India, Australia, Europe etc to keep the Malay AP holders out of the highly lucrative business. He calls it Chinese sabotage against Malays.
The Asst Minister says the govt is only responsible for certifying that the foreign suppliers are halal compliant.
I think the PM shd step in to tell Tajuddin to stop making such racial allegation. The PM shd show leadership to stop the racism. He shd act when his leadership is required to stop the Malay- Chinese boxing match for political mileage.
