PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz (pic) is not bothered by remarks by a fellow Umno member, Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz, slamming her for her opinions on the party and government.
In a Facebook post, Rafidah, former International Trade and Industry Minister, wrote that she was not affected by what Nazri had commented about her.
"No skin off my nose, let alone my back," she said.
Rafidah said she was, however, disappointed at being criticised for being vocal about the nation and the party.
"This is what I get for genuinely advising people and loving my country and my party. I leave it to the all knowing almighty God now," she said.
Rafidah also condemned the use of words by Nazri, the Tourism Minister.
"This is how some people communicate, in their best language," said Rafidah. Along with the status, Rafidah attached an image of the report quoting Nazri who said: "If she wants to bark, let her do so."
In another report, Nazri, who is an Umno supreme council member, told The Star that Rafidah was free to speak her mind as she was 'a nobody'.
"She is an ordinary member and we are a democratic party. Let her speak, it is not going to affect us in any way.
"She is history. They are just old people seeking attention, it doesn't bother us. Even the opposition doesn't want to use them because of the negative stigma attached to them," he said.
He added that he had supported her in the past and that he and his political comrades were taught to always support their leaders.
