The decision by five ministers to accept the honorific titles from the Melaka state government was not a smart one, said Datuk A Kadir Jasin.
Kadir said that the Pakatan Harapan government does not deserve to receive any honorific titles, as it is less than a year old and has yet to fulfil the high expectations of the people.
The media and communications adviser in the Prime Minister’s Office wrote this in his blog on Wednesday (Oct 17).
The veteran journalist has always maintained that his blogs are written in his personal capacity, and not as part of his official posts.
“I am sorry to say that many in the various (PH) parties are still unclear of what their contributions were to feel they are worthy of receiving the said honorific titles,” said Kadir.
He was referring to the five ministers honoured in conjunction with the 80th birthday of Melaka Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob last Sunday (Oct 14). – The Star
