Don’t cause trouble for Umno, Tengku Razaleigh advised


PUTRAJAYA: Umno veteran leader Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. who has offered himself to contest the party’s top post. has been advised not to “create trouble” in the party. 

Newly-appointed Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said: “I don’t understand Ku Li (Tengku Razaleigh) for wanting to go against the Prime Minister. Please don’t create any more trouble. 

“Let’s focus more on strengthening our party from within to face our enemies outside and not cause break-ups among our ranks,” he told reporters after participating in a parade to celebrate Maulidur Rasul at the Putra Mosque here yesterday. 

Tengku Adnan said this was particularly important when Barisan Nasional and Umno were facing the task of trying to reclaim the five states that had fallen to the Opposition in the recent general election. 

On party elections, which must be held within this year, Tengku Adnan said a management committee meeting might be called next week to discuss the matter. 

“The meeting must be called by the Umno deputy president and it will dwell on preparations for the party elections,” he said.
