Syed Saddiq needs no introduction as he is well known for his tremendous help, especially during the flood season that had hit parts of our country last month.
However, not everyone is a fan of his kindness and generosity. To some, he is only putting up an act. Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi, the chairman of the Committee of Tourism, Youth & Sports for Johor thinks that Syed Saddiq has been exploiting the disaster for his own benefit in the political world.
In a Facebook post of his, Datuk Onn revealed that the co-founder of MUDA had made abundant promises prior to the 14th General Election, only for them to eventually be broken.
He also stated that Syed Saddiq had only come down to Johor for the flood situation at the last minute and questioned his presence when the state has been hit by the flood as early as 31 December last year.
“This is all drama to blind the eyes of the people of Johor as if he has been there all the time to help. The other volunteers also came forward to help, but none of them are as dramatic as him,” Onn said in his Facebook post.
Additionally, he reminded Saddiq that everyone feels pitiful to the flood victims, not just Saddiq himself. He asked the Muar MP to not take advantage of the flood situation and stop the act.
“You truly deserve an Oscar for your first class act, bro,” he added, while reminding the people to not be deceived the head of MUDA.
An extraordinary arrogance
Syed Saddiq has since responded to Datuk Onn’s claims via his Twitter account this morning. The co-founder of MUDA reiterated that he just wants to help and he has no intention of belittling the state government.
“Problems only occured when police interrogated us for delivering the assistance to the rakyat in need. How are we wrong in helping the rakyat?”
Saddiq also wrote in his post that the flood season is also a season to help the people.
Regardless, we are forever indebted to not only MUDA but also other volunteers and other agencies that have offered their helping hand during these tough times.
