PETALING JAYA: Former ministers of the Cabinet have sent Minister Lim Guan Eng on his recent statement in which he confirms that the country's economy was strong.
They said that Lim had sketched a bleak picture of the state of the country's economy before the last general election, but was now full of praise.
Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said it was time for Pakatan Harapan to admit that Barisan Nasional handed over a country with a strong economy.
"Before GE14 (the 14th general election), none of Pakatan Harapan's leaders admitted that the Malaysian economy was strong and good, not once.
"There was only Lim who praised the strong Penang economy and at the same time claimed that Malaysia goes bankrupt and people become unemployed, although Penang is still part of Malaysia and is not a foreign country," he said in a Facebook post.
Najib said that Lim's special officer Tony Pua made a statement two years ago saying that Malaysia had lost its competitiveness and no country wanted to import Malaysian products.
This was despite the fact that Malaysian exports increased strongly at the time.
Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong also came to Lim and said that the solid economic base of the country was the result of Barisan's efforts.
The vice president of the MCA and former minister of the Prime Minister said that the Pakistani government should really work to improve economic growth for the country.
"Before GE14 he said that Malaysia will go bankrupt and after he became Minister of Finance, he said that the country has more than RM1tril debts.
"Now he admits that the country has a fundamentally strong economy," said Dr. Woe.
Former Minister of Youth and Sport, Khairy Jamaluddin, also made a joke on Lim on Twitter.
"Strong and resilient in a four-month period Congratulations, the 60 years before it had all been ruined. & # 39;
On Monday, Lim said in a statement that the economic strength of Malaysia can be seen in eight different factors and these reasons have together made the FBM KLCI one of the best performing in Asia Pacific.
