Padang Rengas MP and Umno leader Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz claimed that Pakatan Harapan’s defeat in the Tanjung Piai by-election was due to Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng’s refusal to give Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARUC) its RM30 million allocation.

Nazri told reporters that at the Parliament lobby on Monday, adding that Lim should never have politicised education and refused the allocation simply because the institution is controlled by Barisan Nasional component party MCA.
