Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has snubbed a challenge posed by opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim to disclose all his bank accounts for public scrutiny, saying that he has nothing to do with the issue.
Responding to Anwar’s call last week for him to disclose his accounts, and then Anwar would follow suit, Muhyiddin said he was not the character who is accused of amassing RM3 billion cash, assets and funds in his accounts and thus should not be subjected to such a challenge.
He said he was merely commenting on the issue when a reporter asked him.
“(Anwar) is being accused, not me. It has nothing to do with me, why should I disclose my accounts?” he said at a press conference in Sungai Besi today.
“I don’t have that kind of money,” he added.
Meanwhile, he downplayed PKR’s assertion that the opposition will be able to win 110 seats based on a survey recently.
“Maybe they are conducting a psychological war, so that people will feel like they are supporting the winning side.
“They declare to the public that they can win, in order to garner support,” he said.
Muhyiddin added that BN understands its strengths and weaknesses and will not be frightened by such surveys.
“They can have their survey, we can also have ours,” he said. – Mkini
