Police reports lodged over banner asking party president to step down, says Seremban Umno

SEREMBAN: Several police reports have been lodged over a banner put up near a mosque in Sikamat, asking party president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to step down, says Seremban Umno.

Its division chief Mustafa Salim said Seremban Umno has nothing to do with it.

He said the act was unethical and done merely to pit party leaders against one another.

"Seremban Umno strongly denies any involvement in printing or putting up the banner.

"The move is merely to provoke leaders, particularly at the division level, for political gains," he said in a statement on Monday (Jan 25).

Mustafa said the division would continue to uphold the party's constitution, as well as the office of the president.

"We shall not bow or be influenced by anyone, especially opposition parties, who are bent on disrupting Umno's work.

"Police reports have been lodged, including by our division secretary and information chief, so that the authorities can take action against those responsible," he said.

Mustafa, who was former Lenggeng assemblyman, said Seremban Umno would focus its efforts on preparing for the next general election and assist the people in facing the present difficulties.
