Umno veteran Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz chided Datuk Seri Najib Razak for claiming that the decline in Chinese support was due to the former tourism minister’s disparaging remarks against tycoon Robert Kuok.

According to the Padang Rengas MP, dwindling Chinese support towards Barisan Nasional had already begun long before he criticised Kuok for supporting DAP despite benefiting from government projects during the former government administration.

Nazri said his disparaging remarks against Kuok were made in defence of Najib, who was the then-prime minister.
