Nor Mohamed: Malaysia will revert to 1511 if opposition wins
TASEK GELUGOR, May 13 — Malaysia will revert to the year 1511, when the bumiputera agenda did not exist, if the Barisan Nasional (BN) loses in the coming 13th general election, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop said today.
He said the country would return to the time of Francis Light and Alfonso de Albuquerque as the opposition did not have the capability to pursue the bumiputera agenda.
“We are not sure if the government under the opposition will stick to the concept of the bumiputera agenda. If they come to power, automatically, we will go back to the period in 1511,” he told reporters after opening a programme for entrepreneurs, organised by Majlis Tindakan Ekonomi Melayu Berhad, here.
He said this could be seen in Penang where the Malays have been neglected.
Nor Mohamed (picture), who is the MP for Tasek Gelugor, said such a condition could have been avoided if BN had continued to be in power in the state.
However, he expressed confidence that BN would retain power in Putrajaya and also in other states with the increasing show of support and confidence among the people in the coalition. — Bernama
