Kota Kinabalu: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad stepping down as Prime Minister was enough for many in Sabah to forgive but his latest book and comments made it difficult to do this, according to Sabah DAP Chief, Jimmy Wong.
He said for the record, Mahathir's policy on Sabah had hurt many people, especially the non-Muslim Natives.
The so-called much publicised book "Projek IC" by MD Mutalib where it was stated that hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants were systematically legalised and entered into the electoral roll was the most outstanding legacy he (Mahathir) left behind for Sabah, he said in a statement, Tuesday.
Wong said Sabah DAP was not surprised with the former Prime Minister's statement saying that DAP is a racist party and that Sarawak has now been infected with the DAP racist virus.
Jimmy added that his latest book "A Doctor In The House" reflected on the inner side of Dr Mahathir.
The Sri Tanjung Assemblyman said he wanted to advise Mahathir that time is not on his side.
"People say we must repent and spend more time to get to know and get closer to our Creator as we grow older into our twilight," he said and believed Dr Mahathir should enjoy his retirement and grow old gracefully.Daily Express
