KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad continues to lie and spread false information, said Umno Youth deputy president Senator Khairul Azwan Harun.
He said Dr Mahathir was creating politics that was littered with false information and manipulation.
“Dr Mahathir claims that Malaysia is throwing money to the United States (US) but he is ignoring the fact that these investments are intended to bring us better returns.
“He also said that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has reversed every accomplishment that he (Dr Mahathir) had done during his leadership.
"I assume that he is oblivious to the current government's efforts in bringing policies through initiatives like National Transformation 2050 (TN50) to ensure the country has a secure future.
“We no longer have the modus operandi of Dr Mahathir’s time where his family and cronies enriched themselves before serving the rakyat,” he said in a statement.
Khairul added it was time for the nation to say "enough with these false accusations and fake news".
He added Umno Youth should demonstrate politics that was based on facts.
