Rahman Dahlan takes a dig at Nurul Izzah's "Anwar offered DPM post" claim
"BN offering DPM post to Anwar who lost all four GEs in a row? Nurul, get a grip on yourself! #Drama," Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan tweeted.
Rahman was responding to Nuru Izzah's claim that Anwar was offered the number two post in the Barisan Nasional government after Pakatan Rakyat won 52 percent of popular votes in GE13.
Speaking at a ceramah at Seberang Jaya, Penang on Saturday night, Nurul Izzah reportedly said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak offered her father the post, on condition that Anwar agreed to "ignore" his friends in Pakatan Rakyat.
She said Anwar rejected the offer.
Rahman added that Nurul Izzah should know that Anwar didn't fight for democracy.
"He tried to topple the govt on the 16th Sept 2008, remember?" he tweeted.
Soon after the GE13 which was held in May, Anwar had claimed to have enough Barisan lawmakers to jump ship and form a government. The plan did not materialise.
Anwar was jailed five years for sodomy last Tuesday.
