Bung Moktar defends Ahmad Maslan over two-job proposal

Datuk Bung Moktar Radin has come to the defence of under-fire colleague Datuk Ahmad Maslan over his two-job suggestion.

The Kinabatangan MP said that the suggestion to have two jobs was to increase one’s income and not to burden the people.

“This is called adding value and not burdening the people,” he said in a tweet on Wednesday.

Ahmad who is Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister was criticised when he suggested that Malaysians take on two jobs to cope with the rising cost of living.

He later clarified that he meant it in the context of having an online business on top of a day job.

Ahmad, however, faced more brickbats when he claimed that he has three jobs – Member of Parliament, Deputy Minister in the International Trade and Industry Ministry and Umno information chief.
