An upset Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam has expressed disappointment over his defeat, saying that he will not forget those who backstabbed him.
“I am very disillusioned that the very people whom I have helped by providing business opportunities and caring for their welfare have sabotaged me,” said the former Chief Minister.
Mohd Ali said he was a gentleman in his defeat but he just could not accept how some of his long-time friends broke their promises.
In his 12 years as Chief Minister, Mohd Ali said he had helped the electorate, especially those who needed funds for their programmes.
“Based on the outcome of the election results, I discovered that the areas that had earlier sought our help were the ones which had betrayed me. I am very sad,” he said.
