Receive help from KEADILAN, Umno threatens to retract allowance

BATU PAHAT, FEB 9: His initiative was only to help the community who are in need, regardless of political differences.
However, his action was misinterpreted by some Umno supporter who continue to politicise the issue of KEADILAN leader’s donation at the grass-root level.
The Rengit KEADILAN State Legislative Assembly Coordinator, Malik Faishal Ahmad regrets the shallowness and short-sightedness in the local political leadership who threatened the Parit Amat villagers not to accept any help from opposition parties.
“Batu Pahat KEADILAN had donated a wheel-chair to Muhammad Shah Razlee, a disabled person (OKU), on January 28.

“After two weeks, the child contacted me and informed that they were threaten that the monthly RM150 allowance he is receiving will be stopped.
“They also received threat from the Village Head and Johore Village Heads Chairman, who only help their cronies,” he said when contacted by SelangorKini.
Criticising the action, Malik Faishal said the community should be more open and should not politicise issues on donation and assistance for their interests.
He said, money-politics must not be practised for the sake of citizens in this country.
“This is not fair as many people come and see me requesting for help and assistance, but afraid of being threatened and ostracised, they are left with no options,” he said.
SelangorKini was informed that, previously Mohd Shah’s family was living in a dilapidated hut, without water and electricity.
