Melaka CM advises Guan Eng to ‘drop the arrogance’ after Penang floods
MELAKA: Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron today urged Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to set aside his “arrogance” amid the devastating flash flood which struck the northern state.
Idris said there should be some form of cooperation and understanding between the Federal government and the state governments as they are dependent on each other in order to ensure smooth governance of the country.
“My advice to the Penang Chief Minister is to be patient and to not be arrogant after this because it is a test by God. Melaka has yet to be tested this badly and I do not wish to see this happening.
“When Guan Eng’s video appealing for assistance from the Federal government went viral, it also marked an admission that the Penang government is dependent on the Federal government although he has been arrogant and aloof all this while.
“In my case, I have never mentioned that Melaka is self-reliant (especially when it comes to flooding woes) and I believe that this is the right approach because we can open ourselves up to receiving assistance,” he told reporters at an investiture ceremony in conjunction with the 79th birthday of Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob at Dewan Seri Negeri, here today.
