Mahathir teases: A Plan C to defeat BN?

Now, Mahathir teases with a Plan C to defeat BN
FMT Reporters
KUALA LUMPUR: Dr Mahathir Mohamad has thrown in a tantalising Plan C to defeat the Barisan Nasional under Najib Razak.

However, he does not reveal any details about this plan, or an earlier Plan B, in his latest blogpost.

In October Mahathir mentioned a Plan B if the Registrar of Societies failed to approve the registration of PPBM in time to face the next general election.

In the latest blogpost, Dr Mahathir reiterated that Prime Minister Najib Razak was using various means to prevent the opposition from winning, including using the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) to put the squeeze on potential donors to opposition parties and giving monetary aid even though the government was short of funds.

“But now comes the ultimate blow. Prevent the opposition from offering an alternative to BN in the coming election. To do this all the government has to do is to refuse or delay the registration of the Pakatan Harapan coalition and to deregister Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, the party of choice of Umno dissidents and Umno supporters among the voters.

“But Najib will still lose. The opposition can fall back on Plan B and Plan C.”

Mahathir said Najib feared financial support for the opposition and to stop this he was resorting to threats and harassment against potential donors to the opposition.

“This takes the form of squeezing individuals and companies for extra income and corporate taxes. The income tax people visit the potential donors and demand to be paid more taxes.”

Mahathir provided examples of how the IRB allegedly worked in ensuring that potential donors stayed away from the opposition.

One way, he said, was to reclassify allowances and make them taxable.

“Tax would be demanded on these newly taxable items and back dated by 10 or 20 years. Suddenly the taxpayers find that they have to pay millions in back taxes.”

If the taxpayer refuses, the company books and records would be seized and business would have to stop, resulting in huge losses. Resolving the matter in court would take many years, and sometimes, he said, even passports would be confiscated.

“Desperate, the taxpayers would bargain with the tax-collector. He would agree to pay a lesser amount and plead for payment in instalments. Sometimes the tax department would agree. But the taxpayers are warned not to donate to opposition parties; not even being seen near them.”

Another form of harassment, he claimed, was to accuse the businessmen of money laundering, and forcing them to agree to a fine and “not to donate to the opposition parties, not even to continue friendship with certain individuals”.

“This type of tax-collecting is unprecedented. But the staff are said to be willing to do illegal things because they may receive a bonus for increasing tax collection.”

Mahathir said all signs, including cutbacks on funds for ministries, pointed to the fact that the government was short of funds, yet the government was spending more money “to counter voter sentiment against Najib and his government”.

He listed some of the monetary aid being given by the government, including to Felda settlers, fishermen, the chairmen and secretaries of Village Development Committees (JKKK), and the BR1M payments.
