YB Zul Kulim controversial statement on PKR-DAP pact which even PAS do not know

Please read the following two news articles:

The first a report from YB Zul's speech in Parliament, pity the Speaker cut short his speech:

Zul Noordin claims ‘secret’ PKR, DAP pact to ensure Chinese rule
UPDATED @ 07:16:31 AM 29-10-2010By Shazwan Mustafa Kamal October 28, 2010(MI)

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 28 — Zulkifi Noordin alleged today that there was a “secret contract” between PKR and DAP that will ensure Chinese dominance should Pakatan Rakyat (PR) take over Putrajaya.The Kulim Bandar-Baharu MP, an ex-PKR MP turned independent critic of the opposition, claimed that even PAS was not aware of the contract in an inflammatory speech in Parliament today.

“The contract promises that Chinese leaders in DAP will be given autonomy in Penang,” said Zulkifli told Parliament during the debate on Budget 2011.The independent MP who was once closely associated with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim lashed out at DAP, calling it a “chauvinist-infected party” and accused the party of being responsible for the May 13 riots in 1969.

“[Should PR take power] Malay candidates will be put in Negeri Sembilan and Perak. And if they win (in the states), they will pick a menteri besar from DAP to head the states,” he said. Zulkifli and other independents in Parliament, who were former PR lawmakers, have denied claims that they are Barisan Nasional (BN) supporters, but his speech today echoes the oft used Umno line when attacking PR.

The Kulim-Bandar Baharu MP, however did not provide any details to his accusations as his speech was abruptly cut short by Deputy Speaker Datuk Wan Junaidi JaafarEarlier on in his speech, Zulkifli said that Malaysians needed to be re-educated on the details of the May 13 riots so that they could be “exposed to the truth” of the DAP.

What the party is doing, is they are playing up the same pattern of inciting racial hatred against the Malays despite being warned by Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj against doing so,” said Zulkifli.

According to him, the country’s first prime minister had warned DAP back then to not “question” Article 153 of the constitution as well as Malay rights.

“And this is exactly what DAP is doing now,” said Zulkifli. continue reading here.

And this is the predictable furious response from PKR and DAP, maybe they got caught with their pants down big time:

DAP, PKR dismiss ‘secret’ pact to ensure Chinese rule
By Shazwan Mustafa Kamal October 29, 2010

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 29 — PKR and DAP lawmakers have furiously dismissed the notion of a secret pact between the two allies to ensure Chinese rule should Pakatan Rakyat (PR) capture Putrajaya.
Instead both parties trained their guns on ex-PKR MP Zulkifli Noordin, who made the claim, calling him a liar who was “spinning tall tales” to serve his “political masters” in Barisan Nasional (BN).

The Kulim Bandar-Baharu MP told Parliament yesterday that there was a “secret contract” between PKR and DAP and that even PAS — a PR partner — was unaware of.

“There is no secret pact or deal at all. This is a ridiculous ploy by Zulkifli who only intention is to split up members of Pakatan Rakyat.

“This is the kind of bankrupt politician that is being used by BN to suggest that sort of allegation against us, that we would go behind our own coalition partners… no we are not like BN,” said PKR vice-president Azmin Ali.

Dubbing Zulkifli as a “barking dog” of the ruling coalition, Azmin said that the increasing attacks against the opposition proved that BN was intimidated of the unity between the DAP, PKR and PAS.

“We are in the strongest position right now. We will continue to be strong, united and prove to be a formidable force in next general elections. The strength of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is always through discussions and coming out with a consensus,” Azmin told The Malaysian Insider.

DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang echoed his PR colleague’s views, and questioned the timing of Zulkifli’s “revelation.”

“There is no such thing, it is not true. Where is he trying to go with this?

“What he is saying is a fairy tale, Parliament should not be a place to spew fairy tales,” Lim told The Malaysian Insider.

But the Ipoh Timur refused to comment further, saying that he did not want to give his former PR colleague “too much importance.” continue reading here.

Hmm, interesting isn't it, stranger still that PAS's usually boisterous MPs like Nizar, Mahfuz, Khalid Samad even their Senior Leaders Tok Guru Hadi or Ustaz Nash is keeping quiet though their silence is deafening.

I know YB Zul is a very serious person who does not talk nonsense, the peribahasa Melayu says "Pokok Tidak Goyang Kalau Tidak ada Angin". 

Anyway I think I am not alone and I am not at all surprised by the maneuvering of the power crazy at any cost  PKR leaders and the allegedly"Malaysian First Chinese Second" leaders of the chauvinist DAP.
