Liow Tells Opposition To Stop Spreading Fake News

KUALA LUMPUR: The oppositions should stop spreading and spinning false news in order to confuse the people as the 14th General Election draws closer, said MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

"It's very frustrating to read about fake news spun by the oppositions to deter people from exercising their rights to vote.

"The opposition continues to spread hatred and splitting the people and disseminating fake news.

"This is very agitating. People are fed up. People want to see the building a nation, not to destroy it. Enough is enough!" he said at the "Going 50: People Behind The TARC History" event at Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TAR UC) here.

Liow, who is Bentong member of parliament, was commenting on the #undirosak campaign which has been circulating in social media recently.

He said despite all the false news by the oppositions, MCA is ready and prepared on building an outstanding nation.

He urged the voters to pay no heed to unreliable sources and allegations, and to focus on a stable government for an effective administration.

"I urged the people to come out to vote because they have the freedom to do so. This a democratic country.

"If they don't vote for a strong government, we will not have a stable government," he added.

On the Seabed Constructor, a vessel tasked to search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that reportedly went offline last week, Liow, who is also the Transport Minister, said it has arrived at its docking point.

"The vessel had arrived safely and we will get the latest information on the matter from the Response Team lead by Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) Director-General Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman.

"As for the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370, we will keep updating any information that we have to the media, weekly," he added.

Touching on the event, Liow said MCA will stay focus in its vision to provide education to the people regardless of race, gender and creed.
