REGIME CHANGE 35

THE ROHINGYAS 55

ADVICE THAT WILL BANKRUPT THE NATION 125

1. I am happy that Tun Abdullah has explained that he did not write about how the nation would be bankrupt if he had followed my advice. It was the interviewer. 2. I hope he does not mind my clearing my name over what the interviewer wrote in “The Awakening”. Yes, I agree that I ...
