Lim Kit Siang has this to say:
Lim insisted that the MCA president had missed the point when he challenged PKR to abolish Malay privileges, pointing out that the opposition had never argued over the special position of the Malays as enshrined under Article 153 of the Federal Constitution.
The point of contention, said Lim, was the BN government’s “blatant abuse” of the New Economic Policy (NEP) and refusal to implement needs-based affirmative action policies.
“His (Dr Chua’s) theatrics interest no one. Article 153 is not an article of controversy… it does not arise. The point of controversy is that the NEP must go.
“Dr Chua is just trying to create something out of nothing so that the people are distracted from the focal issues.
And this is how other MCA leaders are crying about in their tweet:

MCA is really going nuts. They have nothing more to dig into or anything bad to complaint about DAP/PR and now have to follow their master, umno, tactics of hitting below the belt and making a fool of themselves.
