“Who knows, more ministers would be bringing placards with small writing on them.” he added.
Nonetheless, it is believed that Maszlee is referring to the International Trade and Industry Minister, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali for he had presented information on a small placard in the Parliament on Monday (July 26).
After the post went viral, netizens in the comment section asked why did Azmin not show the charts using Powerpoint slides and share it with the other MP through the screens. “The MPs not provided with computers?” he added.
“Dr (Mazlee), does the Parliament hall not have any projectors? I thought we are going towards the Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0).” another netizen said.
Meanwhile, Azmin Ali replied in another Tweet, shared an image of the placard he had presented during the parliament sitting.
“This is the placard that I presented in the Dewan Rakyat earlier (July 26) which explains the pandemic we are facing.” he said.
