Feud between Nazri and BBC worsens

(The Star) – The feud between Datuk Seri Nazri Abd Aziz, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Departments and Barisan Nasional Backbechners Club (BBC) chairman Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing has worsened.

“I am expecting the BBC to recommend to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to sack me as a minister.

“If they dare not do that on Monday, then shut up and don’t talk anymore,’’ said Nazri.

He said this after Tiong said the club was upset with Nazri, who is in charge of Parliament matters. He said Nazri had accused the BBC members of being childish and gangster-like in removing the red tape placed as barricade at Parliament lobby on Tuesday.

The barricade was put up to bar reporters from the lobby.

Tiong said the backbenchers felt insulted by Nazri’s remarks, adding that the BBC had checked with both Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia and Nazri and both were not aware of the barricade.

Tiong had also said the BBC would hold a meeting on Monday to discuss the issue and decide on the next course of action to be taken, as they felt Nazri had gone overboard.
