Ali Rustam slams Chua's statement on NEP

Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam today slammed former Health Minister Datuk Chua Jui Meng’s statement that the need for the New Economic Policy (NEP) no longer exists.

He said the statement by Chua, as a MCA presidential candidate, was an old tactic to gain support ahead of MCA elections by criticising the Malays.

Mohd Ali said the objective of the NEP was clear, which is to eradicate poverty and to restructure the society for all races.

“All races would benefit from the NEP,” he said in a statement.

The Melaka chief minister was commenting on Chua’s statement that the need for the NEP no longer existed and that the government should only retain the policy’s poverty eradication aspect.
Mohd Ali said a lot of time were wasted on political polemics, especially during party elections.

He added that Chua should find new ways to get support for his MCA presidential ambition and not merely criticising government policies.

He added that when Chua was Health Minister, he had failed to solve the shortage of doctors and specialist doctors.
