PUTRAJAYA: Umno veteran Tan Sri Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir has been challenged to resign following his allegations of corrupt practices in the party.
Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Mansor said Abdul Kadir should resign if the latter felt uncomfortable with the party.
Abdul Kadir was formerly an Umno supreme council member and Cabinet minister under the Barisan Nasional administration.
“If he feels that Umno is not right, then he should resign,” Tengku Adnan told reporters when met at the Putrajaya Residents Family Day here yesterday.
It is understood that the party disciplinary board tribunal is currently investigating Abdul Kadir over his remarks.
Tan Sri Megat Najmuddin Megat Khas is believed to be heading it.
Tengku Adnan declined to comment if Abdul Kadir’s membership would be revoked.
“To us, Abdul Kadir is not a problem because he has passed his time.
“I don’t think people will be convinced by his remarks,” he said.
Tengku Adnan maintained that Barisan did not hand out money in exchange for votes as alleged by Abdul Kadir.
