Selangor EXCO member, Yaakob Sapari hoped the photograph would put to rest claims by Umno members that they had been against the project.
“We hope that he would stop politicising the matter from now on,” said Yaakob, after chairing a briefing on the project of Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
Karim and former menteri besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo were among the staunchest critics of the project which the present state government had claimed was approved by its predecessor.
Following revelations from a MCA politician, Dr Lee Chong Meng, Karim admitted that he was involved in a study tour to several countries including Germany to study modern pig-farming systems.
Previously, Karim had told Utusan Malaysia on April 7 that the project would cause problems because the Malay-Muslim majority district of Kuala Langat will look like a pig-farming district.
