Tajuddin merely tooting own horn, says Puad

PETALING JAYA: Umno supreme council member Datuk Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi chided Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman for merely tooting his own horn following the latter's allegations against several Umno leaders.

In a Facebook post late Monday (June 27) night, the Johor state assembly Speaker took a dig at the former supreme council member for holding a press conference on Monday.

"Even during the infamous press conference when he was Prasarana Malaysia Sdn Bhd chairman, he described the LRT train collision as a 'kiss-kiss' and then urged people 'don't provoke-provoke' (due to anger following the collision).

"Jauhari mengenal manikam, (Only those with intelligence are able to appreciate and know the worth of knowledge)," he said.

Puad was referring to the Pasir Salak MP's now-infamous press conference after 213 passengers were injured in a collision between two LRT trains on May 24, 2021, that became the talk of the nation with parodies being made by many people, who took a swipe at the former Umno supreme council member.

In the press conference, in his capacity as Prasarana chairman, Tajuddin joked about two trains 'kissing' after the collision, which drew public outrage and his ultimate sacking from the post.

Tajuddin's most recent press conference on Monday was also controversial where he hit out against Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi after being removed as a supreme council member.
