Is Deepak’s quest real, or political?
Jimmy Chia, The Malaysian Insider
Businessman Deepak Jaikishan seems to have a major grudge against the government, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
Apart from his revelations and an e-book, the carpet dealer is now suing the prime minister’s wife for RM 3 billion. That is an astronomical sum, to say the least.
But if his cause is real and he is an aggrieved party in a business tiff, why consort with the opposition in his case against the government?
If this is a business dispute, why bring in the politicians? Why write an open letter to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and say he is a nationalist like the former prime minister?
That appears to be a political move. That appears to be part of a move to unseat the prime minister by creating stories about him and his family, rather than a straight-forward business partnership gone sour.
Deepak has already admitted he has done business deals for eight years and profited from it. Now that they have fallen out, he wants to sue them, and work with the opposition to bring Najib down.
Can he please make up his mind? Is this about business or about politics? One can’t pretend to have an attack of the conscience after working together for so long.
If the partnership was still good, would he have come out and said what he has revealed these past few months? Or is this just another case of a disgruntled businessman who is no longer in the circle of power?
Deepak has shown an insight into a different world but his actions now reveal a bitter man who is seeking to bring down the people he used to do business with, one way or another. To the extent of using whatever means, legal or political, to get his way.
You’re no saint, Deepak. You would do your cause better if you crusade alone rather than get in bed with politicians again.
