Ruckus in Malaysian parliament over ‘flying car’

KUALA LUMPUR — Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Yusof was put on the defensive during Question Time in Malaysia s Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 20) when opposition lawmakers besieged him over the “flying car” issue after it was dismissed as a drone by the Transport Minister Anthony Loke the day before. However, he was interrupted by Pasir Salak (BN) MP Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman who dismissed the drone as a product from China that sees local youths merely slapping the vehicle together. Lenggong (BN) MP Datuk Shamsul Anuar Nasarah advised the minister to stop speaking as the more he tried to defend the “flying car”, the more he became a laughingstock. “Minister, the more you speak, the more Malaysians are laughing at you,” said Mr Shamsul Anuar. Speaker Tan Sri Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof then intervened and asked the sceptical Opposition lawmakers to take up Mr Redzuan’s invitation and tag along with him to test the flying car tomorrow. Baling (BN) MP Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim then interjected to tell Mr Redzuan that he should bring Mr Loke along. Mr Tajuddin then asked Mr Redzuan whether or not the government had injected US$30 million (S$40.85 million) into the flying car project. “No, zero,” said Mr Redzuan. Paya Besar (BN) MP Mohd Shahar Abdullah then pointed out that he believes Mr Redzuan was being sabotaged by his DAP colleagues. “I don’t see it like that. I think I will have to hold a class for anyone who doesn’t understand air mobility,” said Mr Redzuan. Yesterday, Mr Loke told Parliament that the “flying car” being promoted by Mr Redzuan is a drone and, therefore, needs to get the go-ahead from the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM).
