Questions on whether it is BN (Barisan Nasional) is running Putrajaya or Malay rights wing group Perkasa has been raised after the prime minister Datuk Seri Najib backtracked on the decision on the ‘race’ column in official government forms.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Joseph Entulu Belaun had a day earlier said that the ‘race’ column on official government forms would be dropped. Hours after that, Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali threatened to sue the government if the move is taken. Subsequently, Najib said that the ‘race’ column will be maintained and that there were no plans to drop it as announced by his minister.
