Zahid rubbishes talk that he told Umno members to go against Bersatu

PETALING JAYA: Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has dispelled talk that he told party members to rise up against Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s plans to continue holding on to power.

Referring to an article being circulated that he had “mandated party members and grassroots” on the matter, he said the write-up had attacked him on matters such as “jumping of MPs” and abuse of power.

“I would like to stress that the slander by certain quarters is to create a mess of the political situation and to tarnish Umno. I hope the ones who are doing this to stop this evil politics, ” said Ahmad Zahid in a Facebook posting.

Ahmad Zahid also said that he hoped the fasting month would not be spent spreading slander.

His Facebook post came amid an article, which went viral among the Umno grassroots, alleging that the Umno supreme council never gave its consent to work with Bersatu as part of the Perikatan Nasional government.

The article also alleged that Umno’s stand is not only “No DAP, No PKR” but also no to Bersatu.
