Rahman Dahlan: Dr M an angry man

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s appearance at Bersih 4 was unbecoming of a statesman, says Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan.

“He’s an angry person. When you are angry you don’t think straight and say things you don’t mean,” he said at the launch of the mandatory solid waste separation programme at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park here on Tuesday.

The former prime minister visited the Bersih 4 rally twice on Saturday and Sunday.

He said he was not at the rally to support Bersih 4, but to stand in solidarity with all Malaysians.

Abdul Rahman said based on the discussions in the WhatsApp groups on his mobile phone, many people who were previously sympathetic to Dr Mahathir have become hostile.

“I’ve listened to his interview and it’s mind boggling,” Abdul Rahman said, suggesting further that a third party should step in to mediate the rift between Dr Mahathir and the Umno leadership.
