KUALA LUMPUR: Some parties that wanted to buy Umno's support and failed then tried to break up the party, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

"I declined each and every offer. Umno will not change its masters.

"Its masters are the people, and we will never crumble under pressure," he said in his policy speech at the Umno General Assembly 2020 on Sunday (March 28).

Ahmad Zahid said he is thankful that he has not been alone in warding off the party's enemies.

"I am glad to have a good team. My sincere gratitude to party leaders at all levels for helping me to strengthen Umno," he said.

Ahmad Zahid said Umno leaders were not so gullible as to be swayed by offers and other persuasive tactics being used by these external parties.
