PETALING JAYA: In a continuing war of words, PAS vice president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar has taken another shot at Umno veteran Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, saying lashing out at the Islamist party as a "prostitute" was over the line and that the former finance minister was "stuck in the past".

The Terengganu Menteri Besar said the Gua Musang MP should consult a doctor to evaluate his state of mind.

"I was speechless when I saw his offensive choice of words, adding he was concerned with Tengku Razaleigh's state of mental health.

"Anything we can help you with, perhaps," asked Samsuri in response to Tengku Razaleigh's comments about PAS in an interview with The Malaysian Insight.

In the interview published on March 12, Tengku Razaleigh said that Umno should not trust PAS and fight it in the next general election.

"We have always fought PAS. The party has been a pain since its inception in 1951.

PAS has been troubling Umno since. Even today, they are troubling Umno. It's nothing new," said Tengku Razaleigh.

He was also reported saying that PAS could not be trusted to help Umno in GE15 as it is part of Perikatan Nasional.

He said that the party was insincere although PAS and Umno signed the Muafakat Nasional pact two years ago.

"Even in Tg Piai, when they were already with us, they did not vote for us.

"PAS has about 3,000 members in Tg Piai but not even 1,000 voted for us. They are not trustworthy allies. Not even in Semenyih.

"PAS is like a 'prostitute', going back and forth between DAP and Semangat 46," he said referring to the time he helmed the Umno splinter party Semangat 46.
