A new definition to the acronym PKR and PBN caught the Dewan Rakyat and public attention. This definition appears rarely and is evolutionarily distinct that showed the dilution of the extremely high sensitivity of the pig issue. It showed the openness and the first class mentality of the Malaysian politicians in handling of the highly sensitive issues.
Regardless the diffused sensitivity of the pig issues, pig-farming projects took cent restage in the Dewan Rakyat as MPs from both Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat got into a got into a bit of mudslinging fight on Monday.
Khairy riled the Opposition MPs when he gave a new definition to the acronym PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat). He called it Projek Khinzir Raksasa (Gigantic Pig-farming project) -- an apparent reference to the Selangor government's approval of the pig-farming project in Sepang."
A state government had put its priority in approving the Projek Khinzir Raksasa (Gigantic Pig-farming Project) or its short form PKR," said Khairy Jamaluddin (BN-Rembau) when highlighting the issue of self-sufficient commodities - rice, beef, vegetables and mutton.This riled the Opposition, especially members of PKR, who stood up and defended their party.
But none of them was given a chance to interject as Khairy had been refusing to allow anyone to seek explanation since the beginning of his speech.Not to be outdone, Mahfuz Omar (PAS - Pokok Sena) then took a pot shot back at Barisan Nasional by saying that PBN was meant for “Projek Babi Negara” (National Pig Farming Project) – a reference to BN.
