Abdullah slams Anwar - The Star

By Zarinah Daud

KEPALA BATAS: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim did nothing when he was Education Minister and he sang different tunes before different crowds, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.

The Prime Minister agreed with Dr Chandra Muzaffar's comments on Monday about the former deputy prime minister.

“There is truth in what Dr Chandra said about him (Anwar), based on what he has done before.”

Abdullah said Anwar made no changes when he was Education Minister and there was no career advancement for many experienced teachers.

He said Anwar would say different things to different audiences.

Abdullah also agreed with former Gerakan president Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik who on Saturday described Anwar as a “chameleon”.

“Keng Yaik knows Anwar very well. He (Anwar) promised the Indians a lot of things. But what did he do when he was in the Government?” the Prime Minister asked.
