PETALING JAYA - Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin have been urged to stop using tactics to bring down a leader that may destabilise the nation.
Malaysian Associated Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (MAICCI) president Tan Sri K. Kenneth Eswaran said the call by Muhyiddin to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to go on leave was "farcical".
"I am compelled to warn Tan Sri Muhyiddin and Tun Mahathir to stop trying to bring down a leader using tactics that could destabilise the nation.
"If you have grievances and differing opinions, there are channels to air them and the ultimate test will be at the ballot box," said Eswaran in a statement yesterday.
Eswaran added that both Dr Mahathir and Muhyiddin should reflect on "their own shortcomings" before condemning Najib.
On Monday night, Muhyiddin, in his speech at Kelab Sultan Sulaiman in Kuala Lumpur, urged Najib to go on leave until investigations into 1Malaysia Development Berhad were completed.
