Wanita PKR said today it was shameful for Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil to equate Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy trial with allegations of the abuse of over RM250 million in public funds in the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal.
Shahrizat had said this morning that PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail should also resign after the opposition party had called for the Wanita Umno chief to quit politics as the national cattle farming project was awarded to her husband.

“It is shameful and reflects the typical Wanita Umno mentality. This is the wrong analogy — sodomy and the abuse of public funds.
“She really deserves the title of cow minister of the year,” women’s wing chief Zuraida Kamaruddin told a press conference today.
The Ampang MP has repeatedly called for women, family and community development minister Shahrizat to resign as the NFC is being investigated for cheating and criminal breach of trust over its purchase of two luxury condominium units here with government funds.
NFC executive chairman Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail is Shahrizat’s husband.
But Shahrizat said today, “I have nothing to do with it (the fiasco), why ask me to resign?”
“Today, I challenge all (PKR Wanita members) to call for Wan Azizah’s resignation because of her husband (PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim), who has been punished and charged for offences that cannot even leave my lips,” she said.
The Cabinet minister has been under pressure from both opposition and Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs to quit the Cabinet after a host of allegations emerged in recent weeks about improprieties involving the NFC, a national cattle project managed by her family.
Among the issues that have been raised by PKR are the use of public funds to acquire luxury condominiums worth RM13.8 million and the possible use of company money as personal expenditure by the minister’s family.
Zuraida also added today that although Wanita Umno delegates had defended their leader, “the real judge is the public who will vote soon.”
“Now they will judge not just the Wanita Umno chief but all parties in Barisan Nasional,” she said.
It is hoped that the Cow Minister is not sacked by UMNO and use her as an election candidate. So that the Rakyat will have a chance to sack her and at the same time sack those who have blindly supported her.Please , please , please , keep her there and other brainless supporters for the RAYKAT to sack them. Let the RAYKAT deliver the KOs right into their face.
it's the rakyat's money, so you have to be responsible. Don't compare with Kak Azizah, she didn't cheat the rakyat's money and whatever Anwar did(if it is true, which I doubt), he is ultimately answerable to Azizah. Anyways, we want to see you in jail but we do not wish to be in hell to meet you. Cheers!
Do you think all wanita UMNO members think that you are innocent?? MY FOOT!! I am sure many are talking behind your back and please, leave Kak Wan alone. Be a woman and RESIGN!! Shameless Shahrizat @#%&
What is your response to all the BN MP's,Bung Mokhtar &Co who also wanted you to resign immediately .I want your response.Show us you are a real woman leader you claim to be or else just shut up.
That is the reason why after more than 30 years, NEP which is suppose to help poor bumiputra and malay still can not be achieved.
There are 2 different things between Sharizat and Wan Azizzah.No. 1 Sharizat does not practise the true teaching in Islam. She did a wrong and she claim it is right. 2. Her hair can be seen like Rosmah where the Quran instruct Muslims women to cover their aurat like Zuraida and Azizah.
Whilst Azizah stand by her man is because it took UMNO 13 years to bring anwar down by framing him in sodomy 1 and 2 and video sex. Azizah is a true muslim and abide by quran and the islamic teaching. She fight because she knew something is wrong with UMNO.
