The Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate was asked to comment about his over-dependence on Umno leaders to win the by-election race and how he was seemingly willing to sacrifice the community’s struggles by kowtowing to his Muslim leaders.
This, Kamalanathan was told, was illustrated once when he kissed the hand of Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and when he promised to deliver Hulu Selangor as a “gift” to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
Since being named as a candidate, he has also defended Malay rights group Perkasa, a move that earned him plenty of criticism.
A shocked-looking Kamalanathan immediately replaced his smile with a frown and quickly defended his move.
“Kiss his hand? When did I kiss his hand? Show me where I did that,” he exclaimed, looking miffed when asked at an unplanned press conference in Ladang Kerling near here. (read more)
It looks like he lied about not kissing the hand of the Deputy Prime Minister. What else did he lie about?
P. Kamalanathan’s CV says he received an overseas education at the Edith Cowan University and was awarded a Bachelor of Mass Communication (http://www.malaysianmirror.com/nationaldetail/6-national/37008-kamalanathan-takes-on-zaid). The Australian university, however, has no records of him ever going there. (http://www.ecu.edu.au/)
A phone call was made to the university and they confirmed that they have no records of Kamalanathan.
It appears like Kamalanathan never studied there so he needs to clarify and prove his educational background.
Is this yet another lie?
