According to a local paper, 'the Star, Mahathir is reported to have said, "Opposition leaders who met with me before they were arrested under Ops Lalang in 1987 should own up."
“It happened over 20 years ago. I met them but I cannot remember the faces of those people, I certainly remember that Karpal (Singh) was not one of them and I think (Lim) Kit Siang is one of them,"
I think I believe him, but I do not believe he does not know the "opposition leader" he spoke to, it was not opposition leaders but a lone opposition figure from the DAP.
Yes, from the DAP maybe, at that time he was a leader and a very middle of the road guy, who preferred to dwell on local issues of his constituents rather then the politics of the nation.
He was romoured to be a special branch agent within the DAP, but was so popular with his constituents that it would have been impossible for the DAP to have removed him.
Mahathir Mohammed met this man and if I am not mistaken it is on record, but the reports of that time indicated that the meeting was after the arrest.
Like all such people he left the DAP, has not uttered a bad word about the party since then and has not really dabbled with politics with the exception of being a voice piece and PR man for the BN in caring for problem people.
How's this man doing today?
Well much better then his ex-DAP counterparts, he was well rewarded by Mahathir or shall we say the regime, and he is extremely comfortable in his present position, or positions if I am not wrong.
Mahathir Mohammed I have given you the clue do you now remember?
His constant forgetfulness seems to suggest early symptoms of Alzheimers and if he still can't remember he's got to go for an urgent blood test.
"the Malaysian Indians used to drink an illegal brew made by local Chinese brewers, it was bootlegged in the bushes and got its name they used to call it "Lallang Tani," meaning lallang water or "LLT" in short. LLT hmmm.....seems to be very familiar initials not confined only to this brew.
