KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor (pic) has claimed former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was plotting to bring down Barisan Nasional.
The Umno secretary-general said the party was not able to accept this fact.
"Earlier, he was talking about pulling down the president, now he is talking about pulling down Barisan.
“Dr Mahathir is with the Opposition and he wants to kill the party," Tengku Adnan said this to reporters in Parliament here on Monday.
Tengku Adnan also said that given the discretion as Umno secretary-general, he would sack Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir and former deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
He said unlike Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, the duo had cooperated with the Opposition.
Tengku Adnan said their fate in the party depended on the Umno supreme council’s decision.
"The party disciplinary committee has put forward the recommendations to the supreme council to decide over the issue," he said.
