Blatant Lie This, Kamalanathan was told, was illustrated once when he kissed the hand of Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and when he promised to deliver Hulu Selangor as a “gift” to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
Since being named as a candidate, he has also defended Malay rights group Perkasa, a move that earned him plenty of criticism.
A shocked-looking Kamalanathan immediately replaced his smile with a frown and quickly defended his move.
“Kiss his hand? When did I kiss his hand? Show me where I did that,” he exclaimed, looking miffed when asked at an unplanned press conference in Ladang Kerling near here.
P. Kamalanathan’s CV says he received an overseas education at the Edith Cowan University and was awarded a Bachelor of Mass Communication.
The Australian university, however, has no records of him ever going there.
Mother Of All Lies
When contacted, the 44-year-old Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for the Hulu Selangor by-election explained that he had entered a twining programme with Olympia College in Kuala Lumpur, and was subsequently awarded a degree from Edith Cowan University. “I never said I went overseas,” he told The Malaysian Insider, adding that a scanned copy of his degree from the university would be up on his website, pkamalanathan.com, within 24 hours.
Scanned copy within 24hours? Kamalanathan, I am holding a degree from Edith Cowan University. I can lease it out to you for a fee in case you need it. Send me an email. In less than 4 hours, you can have it up on your blog. Or perhaps you can try buying it online where they can make duplicate of degree from any universities in the world that looks like original.
