Anwar Ibrahim - The 'chameleon' will never reach Putrajaya

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin today vowed that his wing will ensure that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim will never realise his dream of taking over the federal government. The 33-year-old politician also described the 62-year-old former Umno deputy president and deputy prime minister as a 'forked tongue tale teller' and 'political chameleon'.

"Anwar should be mindful of his past deeds, for we surely have not forgotten. Switching to the opposition does not absolve him of his sins. As the pot calling the kettle black, Anwar's past will shadow him no matter where he maneuvers in the political arena.

"He tries to position himself as many things: the voice of the marginalised, a champion of Islam, the Malays and human rights. But is this truly Anwar Ibrahim, or is his political struggle motivated solely by personal ambitions?" he asked.

"Anwar may have succeeded in deceiving some members of the younger generation who never really knew his true nature – a political chameleon who changes colour according to season."But Umno and Umno Youth most certainly remember the real Anwar, and we will ensure that this forked-tongue teller of tales will never make it in his quest to Putrajaya," he added.

PKR, all about one man

Addressing some 800 Umno Youth delegates at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur, the Umno Youth chief also dismissed PKR, helmed by Anwar's wife Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, as a party devoid of ideology.

Khairy said the party, which was born in the aftermath of Anwar's sacking from Umno and the government in 1998, was only concerned about the glorification of one man.

What is the crux of PKR's struggle, or are they like their partners who yearn for power above all else?

After all, if it is justice and anti-corruption that they are fighting for, then PKR should look to its own leader. "Anwar has manipulated a section of the Malaysian populace with rhetoric as though he is clean, pure, a beacon of integrity, while branding Umno leaders as corrupt, voracious and racist," he added.

Meanwhile, Khairy also said Malaysians are now faced with the choice between two political fronts - Barisan Nasional, which has developed the country to its current heights, or Pakatan Rakyat which continues to divide the people.

"It is our responsibility to expose the true colours of the opposition – that they are no true coalition and are not bound by any shared principle. "What exists is merely a casual relationship, void of any moral principle, genuine affinity or mutual respect. They are a coalition willing to be in cahoots merely to topple BN, dreaming of Putrajaya," he added.
