PUTRAJAYA, Sept 23 — The Cabinet meeting presided by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin at Perdana Putra proceeded as usual today, despite the news over a claim that his government has fallen coming in at the tail end of the weekly meeting.
PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim made the claim on the Perikatan Nasional government’s fate at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur around noon today saying he had a strong, formidable and convincing majority to form a new government.

At 2.30pm, Muhyiddin when on air to address the nation in the “Kita Prihatin” special address and went on to announce many new initiatives the government has drawn up under the Prihatin programme.
Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Khairy Jamaluddin tweeted in allaying concerns over the claim stating nothing has changed or fallen.
“Just finished Cabinet meeting. Nothing toppled or fell,” Khairy said.
